Need some inspiration for what might be a dull winter Saturday? Want to dine, shop and do some family bonding? Stonebridge is the perfect place to bring the whole family or the whole neighborhood!
Good Morning, Stonebridge
Start your Stonebridge day with a special sweet treat–a masterpiece from Duck Donuts. These delights are warm, delicious and made to order, or as they like to say, “customized before your very eyes!” Chocolate and peanut butter isn’t just for candy anymore. Try a peanut butter paradise or peanut butter pie donut. Or if you are feeling adventurous try one with a salted caramel drizzle!
Donuts not your thing in the morning? No worries! Visit Le Cake Boutique and pick up a delicious cupcake or try a European style pastry and Turkish coffee that will transport you across the Atlantic.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
Next stop: hit the shops! Many Stonebridge open at 10:00 a.m. Saturdays, so you get in some power shopping early on. Visit great stores including Apple, DSW, Old Navy to find everything for the family. Stroll through the aisles of Barnes & Noble to find your next read (the newest store to open at Stonebridge). It even features a café.
By now you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite again, so lunch is necessary. Give your palate a new experience at Aroma Latin Fusion, which features a menu combining Colombian and Peruvian flavors to bring a piece of South America to your taste buds. Or enjoy the feel of a Bangkok Night Market without the jet lag at Dok Khao and try fresh local Thai cuisine that even the kids will enjoy. If you are looking for something lighter, try different appetizers at Not Your Average Joe’s, including Ahi Tuna Wonton or Sheet Pan Nachos!
After a delightful meal, shake off the winter blues with a massage from Massage Envy that can be enhanced by aromatherapy or hot stones. Your massage therapist will pull from various massage techniques – trigger point, deep tissue, and incorporate them into your massage to address your needs. Continue the self-care at Potomac Nails to get your toes and nails painted in your favorite shade!
The To-Do List
After a day of errands and self-care, it’s time to for errands making deposits at PNC or Navy Federal. Grabbing treats for a four-legged family member at Unleashed and dropping off the dry cleaning at Stonebridge Dry Cleaners. It’s all here at Stonebridge!
Still need more to do with the family? No problem, there is plenty to do at Stonebridge. Enjoy a new movie or a throwback film at Alamo Drafthouse. Check out their interactive movie parties! Channel your inner Bob Ross at Muse Paintbar. Or burn off some of those delicious meals with ice skating at Stonebridge. Glide around the rink while you dream about your Olympic moment.
Whatever you do at Stonebridge, it will make you want to return for another day of fun!
