Can this place get any more pretentious?

"As I enter Vienna, I can feel that I am in the presence of a different kind of a city. Looking at the upper class middle aged women chatting on the bench and the young girls talking while crossing the street, I think the bonds between people are what make Vienna feel different." (http://www.fairfaxtimes.com/articles/vienna-idol-extends-what-vienna-is/article_ab877662-5c6b-11e9-9902-77ea8b4a45c8.html)

Really? The reporter can look at two women sitting on a bench on the side of the road and determine that they are "upper class"? And yes, Vienna Idol does extend what Vienna is...

Its always been full of "Vienna Types" since the 1960's lots of overweight patriotic Democrat or GOP feds doing the slow walk till retirement with little league, youth football The Vienna Inn , people supporting the Vienna community. Changes have been coming until today now its lazy double income loudmouth liberal cheapskate overweight feds . I prefer the past to today. Who would not ? Vienna guy prefers the loud mouth lazy overpaid fed crowd he's one of their spark plugs and biggest shills here, he wants more mattress stores to bolster the towns budget to be spent on illegals and prefers his 5 day old fish to be served in a spicy sauce to mask the flavor at leftist propaganda diners and also eat places with names that have the word Hen in them

Fire Hydrant Maintenance Leads to Angry Confrontation in Vienna

A Vienna resident angrily cursed out a town employee in a confrontation over a running fire hydrant Wednesday.

The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. on the 300 block of Windover Avenue, NW, according to the latest Vienna Police Department crime report.

“A Town of Vienna employee was running a fire hydrant to clear the water when a resident became angry and confronted the employee using profanity,” the crime report said. “The neighbor advised he was upset because the water was flooding his yard.”

Lol. There really is some kind of spell. My folks raised me there and as humble as they tried to be, still fell victim to the nauseatingly-unjustified pretensions there.

Congrats for living in a $1.2m home that would be worth $800k in any other NOVA suburb, while convincing yourself that Madison isn’t a shitty HS and O’Connell et alia are any better.

To be fair, you’ve got to be pretty successful to live there; but I still can’t figure out how a savvy, successful, professional can suspend disbelief enough to pay such an artificially inflated premium to live in a superficially overrated regular NOVA suburb.

Tho I was raised there, I’m loving how much more $900k has gotten me over here in FFX Station. Really, Vienna is for rubes who aren’t ashamed to flush their $$$ down the drain to impress other Vienna residents. [Hint: should be ashamed.]

There are condos (converted old apartments) and townhouses in Vienna. You can get one for about $250K. You don't have to be rich to live there. And if you're willing to live just a bit outside of Vienna proper, you can by in a SFH in the shithole of Dunn Loring, which is basically the Manassaslike-area of Fairfax County.

You again? Still jealous of your fed neighbor? Still regretting the horrible choices you made in your little miserable life? Your now ex-wife does, except leaving you.

It's not surprising how bitter the downtrodden become when realizing that they face nothing more in their lives than day after day of living in the dead zone of Falls Church City. It's quite the dismal fate to have suffered alright. FCC has become a plowed-under place. Poor, dusty, dirty, and over-crowded. Little to do and nowhere to eat or shop without leaving town. While limited resources mean many enough are indeed forced to do it, Who would ever want to live in that place?

And after all these years, it's been refinished now so as not to look so much like a toilet bowl anymore. But like the mattress stores that don't exist in Vienna, the legend is sure to outlive the facts.

The Vienna Inn is iconic and should be on the National Register of Historical Places. That alone is reason enough to make Vienna a special place

They are building a four story structure, with an additional two stories of underground parking, right next to the Vienna Inn. The vibrations from the excavation and construction are going to shake the shithole VI to the point it will probably have to be condemned and torn down. I will not be sad.

The Vienna Inn had a proposal to serve tasty food. The Vienna Inn had no plan as to how to make tasty food. The Vienna Inn serves shitty food. Okay, it's starting to make sense.

Not to you, it isn't. The Vienna Inn opened in 1960 in what has become one of the highest order foodie areas in the region. It's packed. People can't get enough of that VI food! The chili dogs alone bring folks in from miles around.

The only reason I ever went to the Vienna Inn was to buy kegs when I knew they wouldn't card me. Needless to say that was a few years ago. Other than that,mi don't have a high opinion of the place.

I seem to also recall that the Safeway (I think it was a Safeway) was the only place in this part of the county to sell the Coors Light Party Balls when they first came out.
