Find them at Eljo’s and Scarpa.   For the Animal Lover: This

Despite the already-decked halls around Charlottesville, there’s still a holiday left between today and Christmas. It’s a day when the people of Charlottesville gather together, share stories and some good-natured ribbing, and eat some turkey. That’s right, it’s the annual UVA vs Virginia Tech football game.

Wilco played two dozen crowd-pleasing numbers to the delight of fans last night at Charlottesville’s Sprint Pavilion. Issued from this incredibly tight band fronted by one of America’s most talented singer-songwriters, Jeff Tweedy, each song was a familiar anthem of lost promise and love’s redemption, delivered on a chilly night with Wilco’s quintessential alt-country, indie backbeat. The effect transported us into

To a passerby, Rip Cathcart looks exactly as one might expect a real estate magnate to look. At 6’5”, he cuts quite a silhouette, and it’s easy to imagine him driving a hard-line negotiation, dwarfing a cold, wooden boardroom. Today, though, the boardroom in the stylish Cathcart Properties office at The Reserve at Belvedere is occupied so I have an

It’s fall, the leaves are turning, and there’s orange everywhere- orange and blue, that is. It’s Football season, and while there are some big changes happening around Scott Stadium (like the new alcohol policy) there are some things that never change. Drinks may be available inside, student fashion might be evolving, and Bronco might be coaching a winning team, but

Thomas Jones ran his way into our hearts as Virginia’s all-time leading rusher in the late 1990s. Now, he’s making hearts flutter as a leading man in Hollywood.
