    I love that Lavender Fields is a short drive from my home. It’s a must for purchasing my garden plants and Lavender spray to help me sleep. I always find something special at their gift shop. Lavender ice cream? Oh yeah, delicious!

    This should be your "go to" store for food and drink. Their prices are competitive; quality is excellent. Their produce is wonderfully displayed. No long lines, generally, at checkout. A pleasure to shop there.

    On our travels to Williamsburg; needed to break up the drive. Staff was friendly and helpful with our tasting. Chardonnay was the best for us.

    We had heard about this place, so we decided to try it out. The Reuben was very tasty, and so was the BLT. We enjoyed a side dish of pasta salad that was perked up with jalapeno. Everything we ordered was prepared freshly on site. No complaints. We will def do this again sometime!

    This park has something for everyone. Playground for kids, pond for fishing and feeding ducks, history visitor center, working farm and house to visit, animals to see, state of the art sports complex for ballplayers, large area you can use to fly kites, great place for walking, and Poke stops!

    My first visit to this place. Huge campus with a large temple. Venkatachalapathi is the main dirty. Went in a weekday and hence the canteen is closed. Very well maintained and peaceful.

    The smell of diesel fumes and the cheer of the crowd let's you know where you are. The roar is deafening as these pint sized cars race around a track at break neck speeds inches from one another. Invariably there is a crash every minute or so but that only adds to the excitement. The fans are fantastic and the evening does its best to cater to them. A different type of fun that you should experience once in your life, especially if you have kids.

    We took some students to the Latin Ballet production Nuyorican. We go every year and every year we leave in awe of the professional and creative cultural production that taps into all aspects of Latino culture. This year's production of Nuyorica blew us away. This was the best production we have been to yet. Each year we are so impressed with the performances we keep coming back. This season's show was beyond energetic. It had our TEENS! BOYS and GIRLS alike, on the edges of their seats. They were dancing and singing along and totally enthralled. This show and its performers really incorporated current dances and themes that brought these teens pure delight. As always, the highly anticipated audience participation and dance on stage was the best! We did however miss seeing the elderly woman who is in her 90s that dances in the show. She was dancing in the night production. I wish she would have been at the morning show. It is such a nice generational connection which is so important to the latino culture. We also loved the ranges of ages of the other dancers, many very young! We love the Latin Ballet!

    I had a lovely visit here. There was a nice selection of beers available on tap. The service was friendly and the place a fun vibe. Tables were decorated with play bills and tickets and the walls were adorned with fun art and collectibles. There were also a couple arcade games.

    My wife and I have been going to this theatre for many years, so we were shocked to find that our experience this time was almost terrible. They have cut staff so low that there was no one to sell us tickets. They eliminated all the ticket sales kiosks except for one. (There used to be four) The only way you could buy a ticket was to stand in line at the concession stand. One half hour later we bought our tickets for $16.30 for two seniors. Then we just waked into the cinema with no one watching us. We saw that you could just walk in the front door and go right in since there was no one taking tickets or even cared that some one could do just that. Amazing Attitude.

    Oh yes, the Virginia Center Commons Shopping Mall is closing for good in January 2020. A group of investors is going to try to build a sports stadium. I do not know if it will be in door or out door. Society has really changed over the last several years. The whole concept of an indoor mall is out dated.

    I cannot say enough good things about this store. The products are delicious with many choices and Jonathan the store manager was the most polite and welcoming store employee I have ever met! I had to literally talk myself out of buying one of everything! Will definitely stop by again on our way south.

    I love that every class presents an opportunity for me to grow. Whether I'm working on technique, speed, strength, or endurance. I always get an amazing workout even on the days I don't feel my best.

    Visited the Short Pump location and received a massage and facial and it was beyond amazing! The products, the scents, everything just felt so luxurious and high quality. My skin has never felt better. I visit Richmond several times a year and this will be my new go to place anytime I’m in the area!

    I reserved jump time for my family on an early Sunday morning. It was the perfect time - as there was hardly anyone there. Check in was fast. The safety review was sufficient. But where are the covid protocols??? The staff members don’t wear masks. Jumpers and observers weren’t required to wear masks. And no social distancing requirements were in place. We won’t be back anytime soon.
