Have a pint at Jimmy's Old Town Tavern


Jimmy: What would you suggest I do in Old Town Herndon this coming Friday afternoon since I get off work early.

By the way my wife is coming with me, we both like ale on tap, we need some custom draperies and some reupholstery work and we want to sit down to a nice dinner with music.

Also did I mention that we want to walk no more than one hundred feet to accomplish all this since did I mention that we like ale on tap?








come on in ....we're ready for you
Steve: Jimmy, this is an easy one. Old Town Herndon is an awesome place to spend the afternoon and on into the evening.

I would suggest that you start at a place owned by another guy named Jimmy!

Draw a pint at Jimmy's Old Town Tavern along with some great appetizers.












Beautify your home right here! Family owned for 30 years




Once you are in the mood to look at fabric selections for your new draperies, walk out the door, turn left walk 15 feet, turn left, walk 30 feet and turn left into Designs and Interiors by the Upholstery shop.









Come to the Icehouse Cafe now


After you arrange to get your home beautified...if you time all of this right you can walk straight out the front door of the Upholstery Shop and walk 60 feet on a 35 degree angle to your left and into the Herndon landmark Icehouse Cafe.


Herndon landmark Icehouse cafe and Oyster Bar




You can have some oysters on the half shell, another pint or two and hold your wife's hand while listening to smooth jazz.

Since you will have saved so much money at The Upholstery Shop you can go all out for the full dinner treatment that the Icehouse is famous for.





Then if you want to buy a home ...contact Jan and me. You will be in just the right frame of mind...

...and we'll leave the light on for ya.

Thank you Ellie, posts like this are fun to do. I have known the guys at the upholstery shop for 20 years.

Pfanns, A real estate agent must be mobile and in the public eye. I find that hanging out in these fine establishments is more fun than the real office. The entire town population passes through these doors. Pretty soon these guys will want to charge me rent.
