5 things for Wednesday, Sept. 18 in and around Old Town Alexandria:
“Caught in the Net” — Catch this new performance from the Little Theatre of Alexandria at 8 p.m. A sequel to 2005 sellout “Run for you Wife!,” this new play follows John Smith, a London taxi driver with two wives in different parts of the city and a tight schedule to keep. Tickets and more information available at the LTA website.
Try Transit Week — Stop by the Alexandria Transit Store (near the corner of Duke Street and Diagonal Road) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for free daily giveaways all week. On Wednesday, those who bike over to the store will receive a free bike light, water bottle, bicycle helmet or 24-hour Capital Bikeshare coupon. More information on the city’s Local Motion website.
Narrow King Street? — Speaking of bikes, if you want to chime in on the city’s proposal to narrow a segment of King Street and remove on-street parking for bicycle lanes, city staff is hosting a meeting at 7 p.m. at Maury Elementary (600 Russell Road). More information: “Bike Lanes or On-Street Parking?”
Take a Dip — In case you missed it, Old Town Pool (1609 Cameron St.) is open through Sept. 21 and free to city residents. For more information, see “Old Town Pool Free for City Residents.”
Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day — If you’re looking to get the party started six months in advance, Rocky Guttman will be singing Irish standards beginning at 8:30 p.m. at Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub (713 King St.).
