    HaHa!! Good eye!!! I planned it that way to see how observant you were. (I actually forgot and thought I was going to have to go back and capture that restaurant again.)

    Today's photo hunt theme is "cone," so I decided to make it a two-fer and stop by one of my favorite local gelato shops, Casa Rosada. The owners are from Argentina and serve Argentinian-style gelato. They're also super-nice and now recognize me whenever I stop by (which is often). The store is closed for the winter, but I'll be back after they reopen in March. Read more about the family at http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/...s-summer-heat/.

    I read about this restaurant in my "Nextdoor" feed this morning. Since I was going to be in that area today, I figured I would check them out. They serve chicken with Latin American or Mediterranean seasonings. It has a lot of good reviews. I'll have to check this out for dinner some time. It is located in the Turnpike Shopping Center on Pickett Road in Fairfax.

    This looks like a good destination for a ride once they open up again!

    Wow! I will make sure to try their gelato (and support their business!) this coming March.

    Oh, I know. Chinese restaurants are one of the few places open on Christmas.

    Do you want to earn two points? Ride and find this place! A hint: this destination is two pointless prizes in one.
