Vintage Crystal Offers Fine Wine, Food & Entertainment Near Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel

Festival Near Arlington, VA Hotel Features Full Month of Events

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Summer is slowly winding down, and Crystal City is giving visitors and locals one last chance to savor the season. For the month of September, the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) will be hosting the 4th annual Vintage Crystal festival featuring wine, food, music and dancing just minutes from this Arlington, VA hotel. Guests of the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel will have easy access to this year's events.

Wine in the Water Park, near this Pentagon City hotel, offers the chance to unwind after work or relax on a weekend evening with wine, live music and the calming sound of water. Pet-lovers should plan on attending Pups and Pilsners, an outdoor beer event that features a large beer garden with various craft brews and fare from local restaurants. After a day of meetings or sightseeing, hit up Blues & Brews for beer, wine, take-out and live music.

While the bulk of events take place in September, November 16th and 17th will host a 1K Wine Walk, where participants sip their way through interior walkways and Crystal City Shops, stopping to taste and learn about wines. "Hydration stations" will feature wine (and water, too) and cheese and bread. For more details on Vintage Crystal and a full list of events, visit www.crystalcity.org/artful/vintage.
