Fun Friday: Pokémon Go Edition – Georgetown PokéBus

~ By Marty Meck

Are you looking to hatch an egg?  Or maybe catch a new water-type Pokémon?  Or even test your skills at a 28046640330_e80e93d832_kfew gyms?  If you answered yes to any of these, look no further.  Reston Limousine is offering its first ever PokéBus to Washington, DC where you can catch some Pokémon, walk around and hatch some of those eggs you have in incubators, and even battle gym leaders from the comfort of an air-conditioned bus.

Whether you’re on team Instinct, team Mystic, or team Valor, you can expect to ride around in comfort one of Reston Limousine’s vehicles in the nation’s capital and stop off at various locations.  You tell the driver where you’d like to go, he/she will drop you off, and from there you have free range to walk wherever you want.  While we suggest Georgetown, you don’t have to follow our lead if you want to explore a different part of the city.

#FunFriday in Georgetown

27713383284_3b8efa9d90_kGrowing up watching Ash become the best Pokémon trainer ever were some of our favorite past times on Saturday mornings.  We knew we had only one choice for this Fun Friday:  Pokémon Go.

Starting out at the Georgetown Waterfront, we made our way along the Potomac River over to Fountain 28251189291_1f794dc57d_kSplashing. With our eyes glued to our phones in hopes of catching something new, we barely noticed the people out on the water kayaking and paddle boarding. Other people sat on benches that littered the walkway taking in the scenery or taking a break from their workout, and here we were, staring at our phones trying to level up; but we didn’t care.

After collecting all that we could from the Pokéstops, catching as many Pokémon as we could find, and trying 28071445310_e694f56c98_z(but failing miserably) to take down gym leaders, we headed up Wisconsin Avenue to Pinstripes to have lunch, refuel, and escape from the heat.  We finally put our phones down long enough to fully enjoy each others company and relax.  Serving soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta, and more, it was just what we needed to get through the rest of the day.

We met up with the Van Terra and boarded it to head toward the Thomas Jefferson Memorial [I think, if it’s wrong we’ll change it], a Pokémon gym for those interested.  After failing to beat the Gym leader for the fifth time that day, we headed back to the office to wrap up our day.  All in all, it was a great way to spend our time in Georgetown for a FunFriday.
