Jennifer Holtzman — Old Town Hostess, Blogger & Wifey
I’m Old Town Post’s founder. I enjoy showcasing the Old Town lifestyle and news to our readers. I love sharing the gossip about town — what shoppe is opening, whose new menu is out, why we’re paying the highest food tax in the Virginia, DC, or Maryland! Old Town Post highlights neighborhood matters, restaurants, and shoppes, as well as entertaining, cooking, and travel pieces of interest to those living in Old Town or intrigued with the Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia lifestyle. In short, Old Town Post keeps everyone in the Old Town know!
I created this blog on a whim one day because I love living in Old Town and I like to write. In addition to being a blogger I’m a hostess. I love entertaining — or hostessing as I like to call it! I get out my clipboard and make a plan by hand. Then I try to bring in an Old Town element — flowers from the farmers market, chicken from the farm, hand towels from a local boutique. And I might hop on Amazon for a little something for the gathering — white Chinese takeout containers for a dip on the boat, cotton lobster bibs to make a unique gathering at a local restaurant.
Little makes me happier than to bring together friends and family for a gathering with good eats, drinks and merriment be it at our townhouse, our boat, the docks, the Old Dominion Boat Club, the hot new restaurant in town or a tried and true favorite. And I feeds my soul when my husband, Miles, loves a recipe I make. His “mmm, this is wonderful” is one of the best things I can ever hear!
Old Town Alexandria is America’s 3rd oldest port city and it’s obviously where I live with my husband and our adorable 3 pound fur baby, Fefe — she’s got a bum leg so that’s her in the pink polkadot stroller with her daddy. And given that Old Town is said to be the most dog friendly city in the US we get more “awes” from the stroller than funny looks!
