Tee Up at New Rosslyn Putt-Putt

Summer just isn’t summer without ice cream on a stick and minigolf. If you live in NoVa, you have been deprived of an outlet for this important tradition — until now.

This Friday marks the grand opening of Rosslyn Putt-Putt + Candy BAR, a pop-up minigolf course in Arlington just a couple of blocks west of the Rosslyn Metro station.

The nine-hole course, developed by CannonDesign and built by Capitol Drywall, features landmarks from the local area.

Par for the course is a treats bar, offering beverages, ice cream and candy. The indoor space is also equipped with carnival and video games.

Stop by with your significant other, your buddies or your whole family and enjoy a throwback to a simpler time at this nexus of wholesome fun.


Rosslyn Putt-Putt + Candy BAR, 1401 Wilson Blvd., Arlington; 5-9 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays through Aug. 31; $3, buy tickets for timed entry in person or online.

Welcome to Bhlen

The idea for Bhlen came from three fun-loving guys who travel a lot and found it difficult to discover the best places to go in new cities or when attending major events.

Finding a good bar to get a beer post-game, the perfect place for martinis after a business function or the go-to spot for after-hours celebrations can be time-consuming and overwhelming. Whether you live in a big city or are just visiting, crowds, misinformation and inflated prices for special events often lead to frustration and early, disappointing nights.

In creating our site, we focused on making travel more fulfilling and entertaining, allowing everyone to socialize like locals.

Lauded as the first of its kind, Bhlen.com’s innovative mobile app connects travelers, promoters, event organizers and venue owners in the DMV with the goal of making sure no one is late to the party. We take the stress out of navigating the social and nightlife scene by making it effortless to find out where to go, when to go and how to get there. No matter the type of venue, whether you seek to find a rooftop bar, Tex-Mex restaurant, LGBTQ spot or a cigar lounge, you can find it all with Bhlen.

Bhlen is also a platform for organizers and promoters to list activities and celebrations around major events, helping to boost attendance and form connections to an untapped audience that is otherwise difficult to reach.
