November Event:  Cars and Coffee in Alexandria, VA

On Sunday, November 19th,the Straight Eights will converge upon the Cars and Coffee meet-up at the River Bend Bistro in the Hollin Hall shopping center.
7966 Fort Hunt Rd, Alexandria, VA 22308. 

We're told by some of our members who attend periodically that there are a nice variety of cars there, and friendly people who enjoy seeing each other's cars. Here is a quote from their meet-up page:

We started meeting at Hollin Hall shopping center in 2012. We are a friendly group of people who love their cars and like meeting other people who love their cars.  We have an eclectic mix of cars that come. We get old and new cars and we get all types. We welcome everyone. Bring your classic, sports car, truck, motorcycle, hot rod or exotic car. Our motto is "If you think it’s cool, I’m sure we will, too!"

We'll see how cool they think a Mercury Zephyr Station Wagon is, hah!

Take a gander at some photos of past Sundays below, and see if you can spot the Straight Eights members or their cars.  Let’s make this next one a Straight Eights Car Invasion!







Cars and Coffee starts at 8:30AM (yawn) and is pretty much over by 11:00AM, so get some sleep Saturday night and come on out!  Naturally, weather can be an issue in November, but as long as its not raining or snowing, plan on the event taking place.

So that we can know who to expect, and send out alerts if we find out there are any complications, please RSVP by 8PM Saturday, November 18 to  We'll endeavor to let people know who else is coming (well….I'll TRY to remember to do so!)
