A Correction and Apologies
In the May-June issue of VivaTysons, we mentioned in our Talk of Tysons section that Classic Wines of Great Falls had closed. We were mistaken, and offer our sincerest apologies to our readers and the folks at Classic Wines.
Classic Wines is open and offering their usual great selection and service.
Please stop by and visit them at 9912 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls, or visit their website at www.classicwinesgreatfalls.com.
From Our Publisher
It just keeps on going. And it’s getting more and more exciting every day. New stores, restaurants, services, and a changing landscape to boot. Where to start …
More events planned: Bicycle races? A Tour de Tysons? You bet, coming in June. How about the metro getting ready to rumble and bring more shoppers and excitement? Need more? Have you been to what we called Merrifield lately? The new Mosaic District has its first sit down dining destination with the opening of Matchbox next to the Angelika Theatre. And BlackFinn with their roadside patio and new dining options for our enjoyment.
What's the rush? We have so many great places where you can enjoy special pricing on your favorite dishes and beverages, make new friends, close the deal, and sit out the usual rush hour madness. We have some suggestions. Stay. Relax! More sliders please ...
Keith Loria explored the new Tysons West destination and has some terrific comments you may enjoy reading. Meet our new contributor – Navid. Our “Tysons Engineer,” as he is known, has been blogging about the changing Tysons landscape for years. His perspective is worth reading and you can check his blog at www.thetysonscorner.com for even more info. Thanks Navid.
Carly and Julie are outdoor people, and they collaborated to give us some ideas on enjoying the outdoors this spring and summer. Thanks ladies.
Meet more of our friends. We spent time with some wonderful people, and our photographer, Deb Cobb, did a great job of capturing their personalities. Know someone looking for a great photographer for a special shot? Call Deb.
Allison paid a visit to The Greenbrier in West Virginia, spent the weekend, and wrote us an awesome review on the magnificent vacation and close-by destination just down the road. It’s quite a place and an excellent mini getaway for those who need to “re-boot.”
It’s community celebration time again with ViVa! Vienna! over Memorial Day weekend. Stop by our booth and say “hi” – we love meeting you and hearing your thoughts and comments. The community support we have received for our efforts has been amazing. Thank you.
Linda Barrett, our wine expert, has more ways to enjoy our Virginia Wineries, and Marcia McAlister keeps us updated on the Silver Line. And “Saddle Up” with Linda – she’s taking you to Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, an extraordinary dude ranch in Montana.
Check out Christine Walters painting to the beat. Interesting and fun!
