The George Washington Birthday Celebration Committee will host a special interpretive evening with Brian Hilton, the City of Alexandria’s officially recognized George Washington. This interpretive evening is called "Dinner With Washington". Committee chair Joe Shumard said, "We are excited about this special presentation. It will be similar to the Thomas Jefferson dinners hosted by Colonial Williamsburg but on a smaller scale." According to the Alexandria Gazette, "The dinner will be held Nov. 16 at Landini Brothers Restaurant and will give attendees the opportunity to interact with ‘General Washington’ in an intimate setting. “Dinner guests will be able to ask questions and discuss issues of the late 18th century, such as the fight for independence, slavery, equality, and imperialism,” Shumard said. “This will be an informal conversation where the audience is limited to 25 individuals and those in attendance will control the agenda. The forum will be open to a wide range of topics and interaction with Gen. Washington is encouraged.” As per Alexandria Gazette, "The dinner will take place Nov. 16 at Landini Brothers Restaurant, 115 King St., at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased online at https://dinnerwithwashington.eventbrite.com. “We hope this will be the first of many events to help increase awareness of the legacy of George Washington in an informative and entertaining setting,” Shumard said."
