Best kept secrets in NoVa

My vote goes to Clifton. Had never been there before but had heard of the Paradise Springs Winery and finally got a chance to go Sunday on a first date. Fantastic time. The winery is awesome in a totally romantic setting. They turned us on to the town (only 2 miles away) and told us to go to Peterson's Ice Cream Depot. What an adorable little place. We both agreed we'd just had the best french fries we'd evereaten and the ice cream was nothing short of fantastic. There's a great little pub called the Main Street Pub right next door that we went to for a couple of beers after Peterson's. So cool. Drove by some shops that were closed and we plan on visiting them and walking around the town next week.

Clifton, really? I just went on an awful first date there this weekend. All this chick wanted to do was eat french fries and ice cream.

Didn't realize the economy of Clifton was hurting so bad that the Clifton Town Council needs to put fake touristy posts.

Cyclist,
I am surprised you have never been there. It isn't far from Burke Lake Park, and I am told your kind likes to hang out there.

Clifton is awesome!

The Pub is family owned and operated and the only place to get a draught beer within miles and miles. Food is fantastic for what it is. Homemade sauces, dips, etc.

Petersens Pub - Coach P retired from FCPS and became mayor of Clifton, opened the shop and is basically the man!

The winery, The "Official" grand opening is the 4/28 - 5/1. The Kinchloe family, Kirk and his Mom, family fought tooth and nail for the privilege of being Fairfax Counties only Vineyard. Basically, they will be the only one ever. The board FINALLY passed a measure that allowed the to open a vineyard on a tract of land that is 40 acres minimum, etc etc etc. The other families in the neighborhood seem all for or all against the place. Brand new banquet facilities, tasting room and much more! I will be out there next weekend, for sure!

I saw a bunch of hairy chested guys riding bikes at burke lake with their yamsac hanging out of their tight little shorts. They were eating ice cream and french fries and prancing around. I reported it to the authorities.

...and who doesn't like the Clifton General Store where it smells and everything is dusty and costs too much and the old lady at the counter is rude to you?

...such charm.

Only place within miles and miles? I suppose that's true if you don't own a car, don't want to go to Burke or Springfield, and/or don't want to (god forbid) strike up a conversation with a Democrat.

Becoming mayor of Clifton is like being the tallest midget ... is it really something to brag about?

Um, this winery has been open for over a year now - they've won a governor's cup for pete's sake. The grand opening is for the new tasting room.

why do bike riders always wear those spandex racing clothes? like they are being sponsored in some imaginary race? god they're gay. and always with that idiot helmet which is totally voluntary after age 15. I wouldn't be caught dead in that shit.

Hemlock Park is so pretty. Hike down to the stream and witness gay men sucking each other off in the bushes. It's fabulous!

Miles and Miles, as in it is miles and miles to Union Mill, Fair Lakes, Burke, Manassas, Occoquan. I could pull a map but I know Im right, Miles and Miles, multiple miles. Yes, I am correct. Yes, It is easier to grab a pint at the Pub than it is to drive to Burke. Also, try Breakfast Taco, it is delicious.

I dont see how being the Mayor of one of the most historical, wealthy places in the country is comparative to being the tallest midget. Moreover, I was saying he is the man based on years of knowing the guy.

You are correct, they opened first week in January last year. The "Grand Opening" will include the opening of their own production facility, as well as the tasting room. I dont see what your point is here, either. I disclosed that this was to celebrate the opening of the new facilities.

Would you care to to make anymore erroneous statements or dimwitted personal observations?

I dont know what happened to Burke Lake. Used to be a great place to jog but lately lots of homos around. You dont dare slow down now. Being out of breath and all those logs on the ground you would be easy pickings.

Cold day in hell before i go down there to see those fags in their black jap beatle collectors. It's saick and sadder yet that the area near the kiddie train is frequented by gay men. Not saying they are pedo's but it could scar a kid for life to see some rededding hair lined pasty dude with bike shoes on, sucking a guy in a crash helmet.
