Gift voucher ideas near Vienna, VA for a housewarming gift
August 12, 2018 2:56 AM   Subscribe

My friend has recently moved to Vienna, VA with his family. Family consists of my friend, their spouse and two kids aged three and six. I'd like to send a gift voucher as a housewarming gift. Difficulty: must be available online (maybe GiftRocket?) They are all set for household goods etc, so looking for fun local activities or restaurants they might enjoy as a family. I don't know the area at all so have no good ideas - can you help?

Vienna has really great Greek and Middle Eastern food, mostly small family restaurants. Some of my family's favorites: Skorpios Maggio, Al Nakheel, Roll Play. These all have gift certificates available on GiftRocket and are all low-key family-friendly places, although I guess your friend's situation depends somewhat on the adventurousness of the kids' palate.

Tickets to something at Wolf Trap would also be delightful, especially lawn tickets which encourage require picnicking. When I was growing up they would periodically have kid-oriented performances in the summer; I'm not seeing that on the calendar right now. (Or, you know, grown-up tickets for the parents + offer to pick up the babysitter's tab = excellent date night idea.)

I have friends who live in Vienna and the only reason I’d drive from DC to see them is to eat at Taco Bamba. It’s the best.

Gift card online.

They should try out Jammin Java - coffee & community. From their website: Intimate concert venue, bar & cafe with kid-friendly morning shows & diverse music acts at night.

Can't believe I forgot about Taco Bamba! That's the one you want.
