These “Four Seasons” Businesses Around DC Might Be Available for Press Conferences

The Trump team induced many comparisons to Veep (and probably a few worries that people might be hallucinating when they read the news) when it held an incomprehensibly weird press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia. Since then, we’ve learned that people have been calling an adult bookshop nearby and asking whether Rudy Giuliani was there, that one of the people who stood up with Giuliani is a convicted sex offender, and that Corey Lewandowski has insisted holding the press conference in a parking lot rather than Philly’s Four Seasons Hotel was the plan all along.

Now, as Trump’s team insists it will continue to fight the results of last week’s presidential election and his allies cite incoherent conspiracy theories, we thought it would be helpful to compile a list of places named Four Seasons that aren’t DC’s Four Seasons Hotel in case they need venues for future conferences, which, and I cannot stress this enough, Washingtonian would dearly love to send reporters to.

Name: Four Seasons Nails & Spa

Location: 468 K Street, Northwest

Pros: Open during the pandemic, close to RPM Italian, short walk to the “Sexy Safeway

Name: Four Seasons Restaurant

Location: Eden Center, Falls Church

ProsWashington Post critic Tim Carman recommends the whole catfish and bun bo Hue.

Cons: Dizzying array of great food at Eden Center may distract attendees.

 

Name: Four Seasons Home Improvement

Location: 15730 Crabbs Branch Way, Rockville
