The only sports bar in Fair Lakes area! After a 20-year run in Ballston, CarPool has moved to 12821 Fair Lakes Parkway in Fairfax. We brought the bar top, the games, the wall signs, and the staff to our new place, but most importantly we brought the good times! No pretense, no attitude, just good old-fashioned camaraderie. With 25 televisions, a huge beer selection, full bar, and great food there’s always fun on tap at CarPool. We have two large bar areas, a heated patio, and private rooms for your parties. If you’re not watching a game you can play one – we have pool, shuffleboard, darts, skee ball, and a Golden Tee.
Jason is a full-time painter living in Arlington, VA. He also creates digital corporate art and portrait illustration. Jason's interest in art started at a very early age. He would record episodes of The Simpsons so he could pause the tape and draw the characters from the screen. Fast forward a decade to George Mason University where Jason completed Art Studio courses with a concentration in figurative oil painting. After working for two years at a gallery in Alexandria, VA doing framing and commercial artwork, he now paints and instructs as a full-time artist. He is inspired by the forms, colors, and design of the world around him. He also finds inspiration from song lyrics and video games for his abstract work. His favorite part of painting is finding out what everyone else sees in his work. Once the paintings are finished and on the wall he is more interested in what everyone else sees, rather than what he intended. It's what he enjoys about abstract art, the idea that someone is going to have to stare and think about what they see and what it means to them.
