Summer has officially begun for 2021, and that means everyone is looking to the outdoors for their fun!

Posted June 30, 2021

Food is always an important item to tick off the list, and the Town Center is ready to accommodate every appetite. Favorites like AhSo, Blue Ridge Grill and Nick’s Taverna all have outdoor seating for those who wish to take advantage of higher temperatures to enjoy dining alfresco. Don’t worry if it’s a bit too hot though, Sweet Frog’s Frozen Yogurt and Cold Stone Creamery are ready and waiting to help you cool off with a sweet treat after your meal. Want to make room for the whole crew to hang out after a game or a long day at camp? Scotto’s has you covered with a wide array of options, from salad to pizza, to entertain anybody’s tastes.

Need a break while on the go? Peet’s Coffee is happy to serve customers with its drive thru, whether you need something hot to relax or iced to refresh. If the car is thirsty for some gas too, then it might be time to stop by the newest gas station, conveniently located near the Town Center on Soave Drive – the Filling Co! Opened in late May, the Filling Co. can feed not only the car, but the whole family with its menu of hand-crafted drinks, snacks and entrees. Summer favorites include any one of the eight smoothies on selection, burgers, hot dogs, or a combo from their value menu. If you need to get a goodie everybody will love at the cookout, try an edible arrangement! With so many assortments available, it will be easy to find the perfect combination to help party-goers cool off in the heat of the grills.

It’s not all about food though. If you want to keep it casual, nothing really beats bringing your favorite furry friend to the Town Center for some people (and dog) watching. Good Dog Rocky, a staple for pets, is offering sweet treats to all the fur babies that come in, and most tenants in the Town Center have water bowls outside as well to make sure everyone stays properly hydrated. From there, you can wander on any of the surrounding walking trails with your pup to a park, or just park yourselves nearby to catch some rays and enjoy your day with your pet.


Hoping to avoid the summer temps altogether? Brambleton is proud to announce that Regal Fox Cinemas in the Town Center is back and better than ever, having used its 2020 closure to make fantastic renovations, including just about every inch of the theater and its amenities. Ticketing itself has moved primarily online, although there are also self-serve kiosks in the lobby which replaced the need for the traditional box office. The individual theaters now have more luxurious seats which recline either in part or in full among other changes. A new 4DX theater has been added as well to enhance the viewing of major blockbusters by adding elements such as wind and fog to create an immersive experience. In terms of snacks, there are now bars for Lavazza coffee, B-fresh smoothies and cocktails to take with you to your show. Talk about options to beat the heat!


One final resident favorite are the Neighborhood Pop-Up Events. These casual gatherings of families and neighbors in a relaxed, stress-free setting are an opportunity to enjoy time outdoors while watching a movie or listening to live music. Stay tuned to the Friday Flash and BCA Facebook page for all Neighborhood Pop-Up Event announcements.


With all this and more in the Town Center, this summer will surely be one to remember. We look forward to seeing you around!
