Fox 5 News “ZIP TRIP” 2017

30 Jun

FOX 5’s “Zip Trip” came to Stafford this morning, June 30th. During their annual summer Zip Trip series, the Good Day DC team gets out of the studio and broadcasts an entire episode from a different location in the FOX 5 viewing area each Friday. Their goal is to highlight local area restaurants, schools, and businesses alike.

They broadcasted from the Jeff Rouse Swim and Sports Center in Stafford, themed with lots of patriotic and interesting guests for our viewers and live audience.  To wrap up the broadcast, TV personality Tucker toasted to the holiday weekend with bites and drinks from Le Grand Cru Bistro & Potomac Point Winery!  Chef Brandon and Winemaker David presented items from our current summer bistro menu:
