No happy hour at churchkey that I know of but getting samples won't set you back too much and they're decent size.

DC isn't a very good place for record stores. But if you're willing to drive a bit (maybe 20 minutes? I don't remember) there's this really cool store in Vienna called Vienna Music Exchange. Good selection of metal and rock lps. I managed to get some pretty neat stuff including not so rare first prints like Bomber. They also sell some NWN! lps and maybe HHR. There's also a couple of movies, mostly VHS and even Laserdiscs.

quick update, back home now. basically could not get a single fucking thing done due to absurd traffic and HORRIBLE drivers/driving in DC. I managed to pop off lunch, tried to get to an area I could park and hit the metro... metro was fucked after I finally found parking, so I ran out of time to even train it back into DC proper for record shops or Churchkey. I ended up stuck in Arlington/Alexandria all day and ended up having to come home mostly empty handed and with lots of wasted time. oh well, thanks for the tips anyhow bros! Rays Hell Burger was quite tasty, even if a bit painfully overpriced ($20 for burger/fries + coke and weak tip due to poor service) oh well...


ended up getting frustrated and ultimately just drank at some small spot in alexandria called Bilbo Baggins, which was amusing I suppose. I stuck out like a SORE THUMB in old town Alexandria, but what do you do I guess? they had a decent NZ IPA on draft which I enjoyed up till the time I had to hit the road. all and all, it was sorta interesting, but I would self destruct if I had to stay in that area more than a couple days or so


bummed, I also ran out of time and could not see the Smithsonian. I really wanted to do that too.

There is a Metro stop in Old Town Alexandria that takes you directly to the Smithsonian.

Off topic but isn't this the Metro Center stop?

yep, I was cutting it MEGA close with time restraints and the metro seemed a bit backed up with activity for whatever reason (this was around 5pm mind you) so I scrapped the whole trip back into DC and retired at bilbo baggins instead. hahaha
