Charlottesville - Bachelorette Party

Hi--

I am looking for some help in planning a bachelorette party in Charlottesville. Right now, I have reservations at Zocalo and Ten Sushi - which would be better for a group of about 10 women in their mid-30's???

Any not-to-miss vineyards, hikes or other sites in the area???

Thanks for any suggestions on all fronts!

Birthday Dinner for someone who loves Pork Belly...and all other ethnic foods????

Just a quick update -- We decided to go with Eola...It was perfect! They had an offal tasting menu with pigs brain, ears and jowl -- it was perfect...very well prepared food and the atmosphere was ideal - nice but not stuffy. I would recommend the restaurant to others!

Downtown Providence - dinner for one night

Thanks for the heads up - much appreciated. I think we are going to try Luxe Burger -- seems close enough and fits the bill for the twins. Luckily, I am with a larger group - so not too worried about the safety aspect. Will report back tomorrow on the meal!

Downtown Providence - dinner for one night

Thanks for all suggestions -- I definitely am interested in a local restaurant -- and not planning on going to any chain restaurants...I will check out the other places -- any other recs in Federal Hill?

Downtown Providence - dinner for one night

I am hoping you all can recommend a good place to eat in Providence. I will be staying at the Marriott Downtown. The only issue is that I will be with twin 9 year old boys -- so I am hoping for a good food but casual setting (they eat most everything).

Any good places we should go?

Thanks!

Birthday Dinner for someone who loves Pork Belly...and all other ethnic foods????

Thanks for the great PS7's idea...sadly they don't do the tasting on Mondays...I was sold up until that point!!

We are big eaters -- we have already done Source, PS7, Kushi, Brasserie Beck, Central, Komi etc....

Appreciate all the ideas and suggestions!

Birthday Dinner for someone who loves Pork Belly...and all other ethnic foods????

Anyone have a recommendation for me - want to take my boyfriend out for his birthday.

The weirder the menu - the happier he is. He loves anything pork related; loves large quantities of food; and hates stuffy/fine dining places

But some restrictions:
We are going on a Monday night
Has to be DC - Metro Accessible - no car

Anyone have a good idea???

Raw grassfed/pastured meat, eggs and dairy in Northern VA?

Thank you - perfect for what I was looking for!

Quality Local Beef - Where to find?

Does anyone know if any of the above mentioned farms make home deliveries to the DC area?

In this same vein -- are there any other local farms that deliver meat in addition to South Mountain Creamery? I am trying to buy a gift for someone of a "meat box" and would love any advice/suggestions.

Meat Delivery to DC?

Thanks..there was a link in that thread that worked out nicely!

Meat Delivery

I am wondering if anyone has had luck with a good "meat of the month" type of club. I would love to go local if possible (DC area) - but any national recommendation would be great. Looking for a variety meat box to be delivered ideally.

Any ideas or recommendations??

Thanks!

Best Long Beach Restaurants

I will be in Long Beach (downtown at the Hyatt) for a conference next week. Can anyone recommend the best restaurants in the area. Looking for both one nice and a couple more affordable options. Ethnic food is fine. Preferably in/near downtown b/c I won't have a car.
Thanks!

Crabs and Jewish Food

I am aware that these two things don't quite go together. But I am looking for both the best crabs in the area (is Cantler's still the best??) as well as the closest place to downtown DC to get good jewish-type of food (herring, white fish, babka etc). I have been going to Wegman,s but wondering if there is a secret haven of this type of food in the city that I am unaware of. Any advice??
