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.

Red Hot Blues at The Divide! I will never get enough of them!! Goat cheese is one of my absolute fav’s and this dish is covered in it! Plus the friendly staff always puts a smile on my face every time I walk through the door.

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

Honestly, anything that’s on Bang‘s drink list. That place has such a wide variety of speciality cocktails, I never get bored. I’m constantly enticed to try something new, and I’ve never come across a drink that I didn’t enjoy. I’m also absolutely in love with the atmosphere!

A favorite local fitness class, name of the class, fitness center, brief description of the class and why you love it.

MADabolic Cville!! I love everything about the classes. The enrollment numbers are kept small, so you never have to worry about a packed room. All the instructors are amazing and the facility is top notch.
