The parking gods must be crazy.
On Monday, 23 July 2012, the drivers for two 'beer-mobiles' — one from Devils Backbone Brewing (driving up from Roseland, Virginia), and the other, Heavy Seas Brewing (driving down from Baltimore, Maryland) somehow found adjacent parking spots in busy Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. In the photo, Joe Gold —driver, and Sales Manager for Heavy Seas — grins as he displays his spot, standing next to the brewery's 'Loose Cannon van.'
Good beer bar/restaurant Pizzeria Paradiso had invited area brewers and brewery representatives (from Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) to a Local Brewer Showcase, as a celebration and unveiling of the restaurant's new, larger, beer bar.
I was there that evening. The nearest I was able to park my 'beer-mobile' was 4 blocks distant.

- Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virgina— I sell the beers of Heavy Seas Brewing.
