Out of the Blue Crabs and Seafood in Gainesville, Virginia is back to hosting a number of community-minded events this September. Military Appreciation Mondays have returned, Team Trivia nights are beginning, and Music on the Patio is continuing.

Out of the Blue seems such a quintessential part of the Gainesville community that it is hard to believe the seafood and crab restaurant only celebrated its 2-year anniversary this spring. Now they intend to extend the celebration specials into the September.

“Our two year anniversary was SO successful and people seemed to enjoy it so much, so we decided to bring back the $22.22 specials!” said owner/operator Ryan Pell.

To celebrate, Out of the Blue will be offering “Two-Days.” Get $2.22 medium crabs plus $22.22 select entrée, not just on Tuesdays, but Mondays through Thursdays from Sept. 3 to Sept. 30.

Trivia nights are a time-honored tradition at the local pub or restaurant, which is why Out of the Blue has begun hosting Monday Team Trivia DC, beginning Sept. 8. Trivia Nights will go from 7-9 p.m. During that time all Happy Hour specials will be extended for trivia contestants. Trivia players can also win OOTB gift cards.

Military Appreciation Mondays [MAM] have become an institution at Out of the Blue. This season’s MAM will resume on Sept. 9 after a summer hiatus. This month, Out of the Blue patrons will sponsor Serve Our Willing Warriors [SOWW] retreat in Haymarket.

Whatever a patron with MAM reservations spends on dinner that night will be matched by corporate sponsors: all generous local businesses. The total amount spent will be donated to a U.S. military or veteran friendly nonprofit in the region.

Serve Our Willing Warriors in Haymarket, Virginia is a nonprofit that provides wounded military members a place to stay and reconnect with their families during a time of recovery. The home is located in scenic Bull Run Mountains and was founded by Western Prince William residents. Find out more here.
