Brunch with us!

Enjoy delicious food and engaging conversation. AGLA members regularly attend the weekly brunch hosted by Go Gay DC from 10 a.m. to Noon at Freddie’s Beach Bar & Restaurant. Freddie has graciously reserved one side of the front patio.

The brunches take place weekly, (10 a.m. to Noon) Freddie’s Beach Bar & Restaurant, 555 23rd St S, Arlington, Virginia 22202 (Map). When you arrive, simply take a seat on the front patio. The Go Gay DC event lead will be glad to introduce you to others. This event is free to attend. Simply order any food and drinks on your individual credit card; there is no group tab. This brunch event is hosted in cooperation with a local Meetup group called Go Gay DC, which curates exciting events across the DMV.

Freddie’s Saturday brunch is quite the deal and very delicious. All you can eat breakfast buffet, including omelettes and Belgian waffles, with coffee, a mimosa, soda or juice for only $14.99. Not a breakfast food person, you can always order off the regular menu.

All are welcome to join us regardless of whether you are an AGLA member or a resident of Arlington. Bring a friend, enjoy the great food and drink, meet new people, and catch up with old friends you have not seen in a while.

Parking is usually available nearby on the residential side streets.

Metro Directions: Crystal City Metro is the closest Metro stop. When you arrive, go out the station, walk towards your left to 18th Street and then veer right and walk under the Route 1 overpass to Eads St. Turn left and walk to 23rd Street. Turn right.
