'Commercial' Establishment Coming to Lake Anne (Wink Wink Nudge Nudge Say No More)

Lake Anne.jpg

A Confidential Restonian Operative sent us this photo from Lake Anne Village Center, prompting us to wonder just what the nature of this "commercial" establishment will be.

Say no more.

Update: Our BFFs at Patch have more about the exciting new business that will soon grace Lake Anne. Maria's Passion Paradise? Maybe they'll sell smoothies or something.


  1. "Passion" on display in up-tight Reston? I think not.

  2. LMAO at the all the retired hall monitors commenting on the Patch article. The hypocracy is rampant with all these 'fine citizens'.

    Methinks they need to get laid...

  3. Awww...and here I thought all the butthurt over an adult-themed store was limited to those upright citizens in the City of Manassas who thought the lingere store that opened in Old Town was some kind of portal to Hell. Nice to see the aging Reston hippies are rending their garments with equal relish.

  4. I was shocked, simply SHOCKED, that Patch SCOOPED you on this! Such a kerfuffle over virtue simply SCREAMED "Restonian, cover THIS!"

    But, better late than never. Nudge, nudge.

  5. All those Latinos I see loitering in Lake Anne Plaza have little need for exciting underwear and aphrodisiacs -- they are abundantly capable of reproducing without such assistance.

    On the other hand, aging hippies in edible underwear is something I don't even want to think about.

  6. Looks like I picked the wrong week to go on vacation and pre-write posts.

  7. Seriously? They’d rather have empty retail space than an adult-themed store in the neighborhood? God forbid that children figure out that sex exists, and that some people actually like it. Better plug little Joey back into his X-Box before he's irrevocably damaged.

    We’ll take ‘em over at Tall Oaks. Better that than a Dollar General!

    Forget whether it is appropriate or not. This store won't last 6 months in that location. It will be gone before everyone gets done getting into an uproar over it, and just revert to a vacant property again

  9. If the Passion Pit were selling USED adult themed products, they would totally fit at Lake Anne Plaza, right between the used book store and the consignment store.

  10. Trollrus,

    both hysterically funny and horrifically skeezie at the same time! Very nice :)

  11. 11:27, let Lake Anne have the Skivvies Store. I'm working with a consortium of investors to put in a Pole Dance Palace in the Tall Oaks site. Reston needs some real night life.
