Top Picks

A favorite dish in town, what it’s called, where it’s at, describe what makes it special/different/one of your favorites.

Tie between Carne Asada at Mas Tapas and Red, Hot, Blues at Continental Divide. Both are examples of simple dishes executed to perfection.

A favorite drink in town, what it’s called, where it’s at, describe what makes it special/different/one of your favorites.

One of my (many) favorite beverages in the area is the Meritage from King Family. It’s a great example of the quality wines being crafted in Virginia.

A favorite local musician, name of the musician, type of music, your favorite local show that featured them.

Love Canon. 80s? Bluegrass? Yes. Not only do these guys play awesome 80s music, they are ridiculously talented musicians and put on a great live show.
