  1. On October 22nd, I'm going to be going to Palladio, the restaurant at Barboursville Vineyards, where Cesare Lafranconi, the chef from Tosca, is going to be guest chef for the night. Has anyone been to these wine dinners at Barboursville before, and would you recommend them?
  2. Hello DonRockwellians, Taking the invitation Don gave me in another forum to start a thread on my law firm and some of the good work we do. We have a fairly diverse practice area, I mainly do family law, but my firm practices in a lot of areas, including general civil litigation, real estate, land use, wills, trusts, estates, guardianship, adoption, criminal, etc. Well here is one thing we are currently doing to help out small businesses in the Northern Virginia area. If you need this for your business, reach out. Katelin Moomau

  4. Poplar Springs, Casanova I saw a mention of this in "The List" email and it looks really interesting. Perfect for a tranquil weekend getaway, plus the restaurant looks excellent. Anyone been or heard anything positive and can report back?

  6. I stumbled across a wonderful piece of Arlington County public art today at Oakland Park, near Virginia Square Metro. This is called "Ridge" by the local artist Foon Sham. You can walk through it, and it's impermeable to rain. It's even a Pokegym.
  7. I've always known Washington-Liberty HS, in Arlington County (VA), as "Washington-Lee HS," but I drove by the other day, and saw this sign on the corner. After a quick internet search, I see that the Arlington Public Schools Board voted to rename the school in Jan, 2019, effective as of the 2019-2020 school year. Jan 10, 2019 - "Virginia High School To Be Renamed Washington-Liberty after Lee Controversy" by Gina Cook on nbcwashington.com I suspect that many of our members went here, as it's one of only three public high schools in Arlington County, VA (along with Wakefield
  8. I thought I'd throw this out there after reviewing some year end activity. This past year the Professional Bartending School provided bartenders for over 130 parties, events, weddings, corporate events, holiday parties, etc. We don't aggressively advertise or market this service. The school doesn't charge for the service. We will connect you with our graduates and you pay them direct. We are currently in contact with over 1,000 graduates ranging from people with over 10 years experience to new grads. We have suggested hourly rates. Many of our grads already work for caterers, so
  9. I am spending more and more time in Richmond Va and have noticed we do not have a thread on wonderful city. Look here for information on one BBQ place http://www.donrockwell.com/index.php?showtopic=38 I had a great meal at "The Hard Shell" located downtown on Cary Street. I started off with Calamari, fresh, fried, lightly dusted with corn meal. My main meal was a pasta and seafood dish. The seafood was fresh, pleantiful and full of flavor. The light tomato and basil sauce was a perfect accompliment to this dish.
  10. Nice plug for Virginia wine in today's New York Times: "A Taste of Vintage Virginia" by Jessica Merrill on nytimes.com --- Barboursville Vineyards (DCMark)
  11. Hello all. I guess I'm the newest member. My name is Jeff and I'm one of the owners and the Vigneron for Glen Manor Vineyards, a Virginia farm winery. I found this site after a friend forwarded to me a copy of the City Paper where Don recommended my Sauvignon Blanc...Thanks Don! I'll lurk for a little while but you will hear from me now and again. --- Edit - Readers, here are a whole bunch of links to Glen Manor threads, the most important being the first one where Jeff blogs for an entire year (Jan 1, 2010 - Dec 31, 2010) about the 2010 Virginia vintager. It should have won the Jame
  12. File this away for future visits to the Newseum: Online tickets are 15% off (substantial when you consider general admission is $24.95). Even at full price, this museum is worth the admission - I suspect attendance is dropping off, and it may not be around forever. Also, the tickets include the "next day free" - useful for those (like me!) who quickly develop Museum Fatigue. I went back for the second consecutive day yesterday, and I'm glad I did (I combined day two with a trip to the National Archives - nothing like strolling down the street to see the Declaration of Independen
  13. I know it's just shy of Thanksgiving but could y'all chime in where one could go for a festive atmosphere to dine on Christmas Day? Looking for places that are richly saturated with Christmas decor, and lights. The brighter the better. I know several families that will be heading to the District, as well as Baltimore, to celebrate Christmas and are looking for something spectacular! I am thinking that a bunch of hotels will be serving dinner on Christmas, but since I have not lived in the District for some time, I am out of the loop. Food is a factor, but honestly I am just looking for some
  14. I've been heavily into podcasts lately. One of my favorites is Radio Lab and this story blew me away. I had never heard of Henrietta (Henrietta Lacks), but evidently, there's a best-selling book about her life and HBO will soon premier a movie based on her life starring Oprah. In a nutshell, it's the story of scientists trying to make human cells live and reproduce outside the body. They failed over and over again until they got a hold of Henrietta's cells from a cervical cancer biopsy. The resulting "HeLa" cells marked the beginning of BioTech by serving as the catalyst for all kinds of
  15. I'll be spending November 13-15 at a cottage on a farm in Brightwood, VA, which is about 20 minutes southwest of Culpeper, with my (non-foodie) husband and toddler. I looked at the Virginia - Small Cities and Towns thread but am a bit overwhelmed because I'm not familiar with many of the small cities and towns and don't know how far they are from Brightwood. I started looking the cities and towns up in Google Maps but can't keep them all straight! I'm thinking it's unlikely I'll get my husband to drive more than 45 minutes or so to get anywhere -- maybe an hour. Does anyone know of anypla

  18. "Arthur Was Always Different": Reflecting on Ashe's Legacy, 50 Years after U.S. Open Win" by Ava Wallace on washingtonpost.com I remember pulling for Jimmy Connors in the 1975 Wimbledon Finals - had I only known better ... I am *so glad* Ashe won that match, and it took a lifetime of living (not just being a tennis player) to understand *why* I'm so glad Ashe won.
  19. For my sins, I get to spend the weekend in Williamsburg with a 10, 8, 6 and 4 year old. While Busch Gardens is likely to feature prominently in our agenda, I was wondering if folks has any tips for family friendly, but good eateries in the Williamsburg area. TIA
  20. A white supemacist organization called "Identity Evropa" has made their presence felt in Arlington, VA today. "Flier for a White Supremacist Group Spotted in Clarendon" by Alex Koma on arlnow.com NOTE: The article states that this group in based in Alexandria. Here is their online application: And this is under their "Education" tab - I urge people to go there, and to click on "Human Biological Diversity," Then on the article entitled "Race - Stalking the Wild Taboo." (While you're there, do a find on "chimpanzees.") --- I'm going to
  21. Neal, I listened to "When the World's on Fire," and it's absolutely amazing - Woody didn't do much at all with this one, did he. That said, I still don't know if he was proud or ashamed to be an American - I can see it both ways, which is probably the point. Although I didn't quite understand all the words (I'm sure I could find them on the internet), there's a certain innocence to The Carter Family's song that I find sweet and charming. Trivia: June Carter is a distant cousin of President Jimmy Carter (!)
  22. In one of my OCD, "nobody-cares-but-me" moments of fret, I've been stewing about whether to continue calling this area "Tysons Corner," which it will always be for me, or the newly coined "Tysons," which seems to be what it's turning into. Although I don't remember what things were like before 1968, when Lerner Enterprises (the family which owns the Washington Nationals, and the largest private landowner in the Washington, DC area) built Tysons Corner Center, I do remember comfortably driving there from Silver Spring in about twenty minutes (really - even during rush hour, when cars would
  23. "Naismith Hall of Fame Finally Does Right by Lefty and Votes in Driesell" by John Feinstein on washingtonpost.com Brian Magid's Facebook Status regarding the announcement Pam Driesell's Facebook Status regarding the announcement Some insider trivia: The Driesells lived right across the street from Springbrook High School in Silver Spring, MD - I went to school with Pam since 5th grade (when they moved up here from Davidson, NC), as well as Chuck (who played for Maryland), but here's the really esoteric, insider trivia: Their house was literally right next door to the family of H
  24. I have been chauvinistic to Virginia wineries for a long time yet only recently have I found reds that I like (i.e. Hillsborough Onyx, Glen Manor Hodder Hill). I have not tried Chateau O'Brien's $80 tannat although we've been to the winery. RdV seems to be another level though. Rutger de Vink is something like Virginia's version of Washington state's passionate Charles Smith (Parker 99 points for several of his wines.) He has an absolutely incredible setting for his wine. This may be as impressive of a winery as I have been to anywhere; certainly sitting at the top of the steep hillside
