Despite threatening skies, more than 160 people came out for our first-ever ARLBBQ event in Pentagon City on Saturday evening.
The free event was held at The Bartlett, the new apartment building at 520 12th Street S. in Pentagon City. Guests took advantage of a selection of local beer; platters of beef brisket, pulled pork, pork bell, and wings; and a selection of games from fussball to cornhole to giant Jenga and chess sets.
Luckily, the rain held off for the entire three-hour event, and the clouds helped to make the outdoor patio an especially comfortable option for hanging out.
We learned some things about ARLnow readers during the ARLBBQ. First, they can get really loud if the fussball competition heats up. Second, there are very few who would opt for Budweiser or Bud Light if there’s a locally-brewed pale ale or wheat beer available. Third, they can house a hundred pounds of meat like it’s nobody’s business.
Thank you to Vornado Residential for sponsoring the event, providing the space and subsidizing our food and drink. If you’re in the market for a really nice new apartment with an equally nice view, and if you want to be able to pop over to the area’s newest Whole Foods without even having to go outside, be sure to check out their current offer of up to two months free rent.
Thank you to the catering department of the new Pentagon City Whole Foods for supplying the delicious barbecue and other bites. Thank you to Omar DeBrew for our fiery logo. Finally, thank you to the Washington Wine Academy for tending bar and to Sehkraft Brewing in Clarendon for supplying a keg of their NoVa IPA, which was such a hit that it was unfortunately empty before the halfway point of the event.
If you weren’t able to attend and were really jonesing for an ARLnow t-shirt, be sure to keep an eye out for an announcement about our next event this fall. If you’d like to learn more about The Bartlett, call (844) 807-9317 to schedule a personalized tour.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
