Strolling Supper
This Week's Top Pick 

Just last month, the best-of-the-best restaurants from Hampton Roads were chosen for the Hampton Roads Magazine Platinum Plates Awards. Now is your chance to try out their delicious dishes at WHRO's 4th Annual Strolling Supper Party on Sunday, Feb. 17 from 4-7 p.m. at Norfolk Waterside Marriott. This event will hold a silent food-themed auction and live entertainment while guests get to taste food samples from the best restaurants selected by HRM food editor and Platinum Plates critic Patrick Evans-Hylton and his team of judges. VIP ticket holders will enjoy entrance to the VIP lounge from 3-4 p.m. and a cooking demonstration by Las Vegas World Food Championship winners Team Chesapeake Bay chefs to include Executive Chef Travis Brust of Williamsburg Inn, winner of the World Chef Challenge, and his teammates Mike Ferrell, chef/owner of Still Worldly Eclectic Tapas in Portsmouth and Jerry Weihbrecht, chef/owner of Zo√ęs Steak & Seafood Restaurant in Virginia Beach. Proceeds from the event will benefit WHRO. 

This Week's Top Getaway

Get ready for a beautiful and relaxing weekend getaway to Afton. Stop at Blue Mountain Brewery for a taste of their handcrafted beers and tour the fields where they grow their own Centennial hop plants, which give their beer its unique characteristics. Dine at the brewery restaurant, where everything is made from scratch and breads are made fresh daily at Goodwin Creek Farm. Stay at the beautiful Farmhouse at Veritas, awarded the Top 10 United States B&Bs award in 2012 by The farmhouse was built in 1836 and has six luxurious guest rooms in a short walk away from Veritas Vineyard and Winery, where you can enjoy the luscious wines, take a tour of the vineyard and see how the wine is made.
