Takin’ ORF

::what to do where, what and when::

 Obviously, given my last name, it is always a joy to show people around a city I have gotten to know over 20+ years and experience it through their eyes. 

 The best part about living here at this time in my life is that I still find so many new things to try and do.  Recent examples include Bistro $3.50 happy hour, hiking at First Landing State Park, and Ten Top (still baffled that I never knew Ten Top existed until two weeks ago, but that’s a story for later). 
 Just to prove there are endless things yet to try, included on my “firsts to- do ASAP” list are trying Path, Norfolk’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, $.50 .75 (seriously they had to raise the price?), and buying a membership to Five Points summer CSA.  See what did I tell ya.  
Here’s a list of some of my favorite’s/tried and to-date [will do my best to update frequently].  For the best local news/happenings, check out Pilot OnlineAltDaily, or FestEvents.
