So, you have 48-hours to check out the great city of Norfolk. The city has been around since 1682, so how do you choose what to do? There is so much to offer a family in the Mermaid City, but here's my list of attractions, restaurants, and special spots that aren't to be missed. I love it here; after these two days, anyone visiting would too.
Enter the door of the renowned NorVa on Saturday, August 29, to witness a few of the finest acts that make up Hampton Roads’ ever-so-impressive reggae scene. The lineup is stacked from top to bottom with performances by United Souls, Tomlin Hill, Destined Nation, the REEF.
6-9pm: Say goodbye to summer in style at Cure Coffeehouse and Brasserie during the Bold Rock pint night and Folk Jam. You’ll get to drink some cider and enjoy some tunes.
6-10pm: Grab a blanket or chair and enjoy Hey! Hey! Hooligan at Thursdays by the Lake at the Mariners’ Museum & Park.
6-8pm: Need to prep for the upcoming Fall parties? Take a Centerpiece Class at The Bonbonnier.
The cobblestone streets will draw you in; the neighborhood itself will enchant you, and the businesses will keep you coming back for more.
This week, I want to take a break from poking the bear and point out some good things going on around the region. As always, I hope they represent a trend, and I want to encourage the kind of progress these positive actions represent.
I wondered who was going to show up Wednesday night at Chrysler Hall to see Idina Menzel perform. The 8:00 pm start time seemed late for little girls dressed up in blue Elza gowns to hear the Oscar winning song, “Let It Go.” There were a few little girls there, but they had to wait until the finale to hear that song--more about that later.
Sorry kids, it’s just me this week. Laura Watkins is off on a supersecret assignment and you wouldn’t believe it if I told you anyway (#hashtagehints #ChineseStockMarket #Lemurs #MalaysianAirlines #GraciousLivingRetirmentCommunity, I’ve already said too much). This week, I’m talking about ODU, Donald Trump, Katrina after ten years, and the National Parks.
This week, I want to first share a story that likely flew under most people’s radar, then tie it in with a larger problem that the Pilot has reported extensively about. Let’s peel back another layer of this particularly stinky onion.
