Reston Town Center: Life 'In the Fast Lane'

Fast Lane.jpg
Well, well, well, this fancy shot of Reston's Fake Downtown is the opening spread of a downstate magazine article about how rockin' Fairfax County is, at least compared to the rest of our sleepy, presumably tobbaccy-intensive state. Of course, we've never seen anyone dressed like this at Reston Town Center, where the typical dress code for a hoppin' Friday night is more likely to be a hoodie and jeans. What, were these two socialites turned away at the velvet rope outside of the Macaroni Grill before heading to the Apple Store for a rockin' evening of trying different, whazzitcalled, "i Pods" while sitting on those spherical, cloth-covered seats?

  2. I mean, they're too old to join all the cougars at ATR or Jackson's...

    Speaking of cougars, can I ask why all of the NoVA cougars hit on we gay guys? It's sort of awkward and embarrassing for both of us in the end. LOL! However I really DID enjoy running on the W&OD Trail out between Purcellville and Hamilton one day in the summer and having two 40-year-old women on bikes hanging behind me making encouraging statements about my pace and "stamina." I should have taken my shirt off just to tease them a bit more. LOL! NoVA = Cougar Town.

  4. Geez, has something changed? RTC on the weekends is usually swarming with high school kids.

    Bico- my guess is this happens by accident because gay gentlemen are less likely to be out in the evening with a woman, and may, therefore, appear more likely to be single.

    Of course, when you're 20 years old, all adult women probably seem like cougars!

  5. bico,

    That's bizarre - I was thinking the exact same thing a couple days ago!

  6. Gee, BiCO you are very lovely young man and I'm sure you attract a lot of feminine attention. This is something to complain about?

    Haha! Well I do take the occasional "attention" as a compliment for certain, but I do wish that instead of it always being from middle-aged women some of it might be from fellow college-aged males. Worse yet is when the married 50-something males from Ashburn hit on me. Ladies, some of you may want to check on your husbands! LOL!

  8. those chicks look like they're holding hands, so they're probably not interested in guys anyway

    also, why no pictures of the mall cops shooing kids in front of the movie theatre?
