Three ways to spend your weekend: Jan. 28-30, 2022
The article has been updated to reflect Gunston Hall's delayed opening time of 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 29.
Tonight’s precipitation may or may not affect travel conditions around the Richmond Highway corridor this weekend. If you’re able to get out and about safely, consider any of these three options:
- Visit the newly reopened Gunston Hall. Closed this past month — partly due to tree clean-up after the Jan. 3 winter storm — Gunston Hall at 10709 Gunston Road in Mason Neck is reopening to the public at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29 and celebrating with 10% off purchases all weekend in its on-site gift shop. Grounds passes and general admission tickets can be purchased in advance.
- Attend live theater. Mount Vernon High School Theatre Arts
will feature two performances of “Alice in Wonderland” on Saturday, Jan. 29 — at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or via the website. The high school is located at 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road.
- De-clutter for a good cause. On Sunday, Jan. 30 from 9-9:30 a.m., the West Potomac High School Dance Team is collecting clean, gently used clothing and linens for donation to a local thrift store. Proceeds, based on the total weight of the donation, will go to the dance team. Place your donations in trash bags and leave them at the large blue bin outside entrance 3A of the Springbank Arts Center building at West Potomac (6500 Quander Road). Tax receipts will be available.
