    Lodging Options

    There are a lot of places to stay in Northern Virginia. We’re Metro accessible via the Orange Line East Falls Church Metro station, so you don’t have to stay right in the neighborhood. In fact, there are a bunch of great pub crawling options off of the Orange Line Arlington Metro stations between Ballston and Courthouse. But, if you want to camp out with us late and enjoy Sunday Brunch early, by all means stay at one of the walking distance options.

    Public Transportation

    Mad Fox encourages Barleywine Fest participants to walk or use public transportation. It really is very easy, we provide thedirections.

    Hardywood Tap Takeover BEER BRUNCH!

    feBREWary BEER BRUNCH @ SECCO WINE BAR
    Sunday, February 24, 2013

    Brunch Menu (available 11AM-3PM)

     Sous Chef Mike’s all new menu:
     coffee cake w/ molasses butter
    roasted beets, mixed greens, whipped chèvre, orange vinaigrette, walnuts & smoked honey
    celery root soup w/lemon & chives (option to add fried egg)

    shrimp & scallop quiche w/mixed green salad
    veal meatballs w/creamy herbed polenta, tomato sauce & fried egg

    This month’s Beer Brunch will showcase a tap takeover by the Devil’s Backbone Brewery. Drafts will include DB’s Swartz Bier (a toasty, german-style black lager), Belgian Congo Pale Ale (an IPA brewed with a belgian yeast strain), and a special edition of DB’s Danzig Baltic Porter spiked with local coffee.

    The fine print: This is not a ticketed event, all items are served a la carte. As is the norm, seating will be done on a first come/first served basis, with reservations being taken only for parties of five to eight (info@seccowinebar.com or 804.353.0670). Please keep in mind the size of our establishment–the smaller your party, the more quickly we can accommodate you.

    PLEASE NOTE: Because the last Sunday in March is Easter, there will be no beer brunch next month.
