    From late July through early August of 1927, artists such as The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers and more made musical recordings in a makeshift studio in downtown Bristol. Those recordings became known as the 1927 Bristol Sessions, and they made Bristol the birthplace of #countrymusic. Tomorrow, 87 years later, a museum dedicated to the history of country music, starting with those 1927 Sessions, opens to the public in downtown #Bristol. This is a must-visit for music fanatics and connoisseurs! Photo props to @amandastrav. #bcmm #birthplaceofcountrymusic #oldschoolva #vatravel #loveva #records #virginia #musiclovers @bcmbristol
    If you're in #VirginiaBeach and looking for a killer #breakfast with local gourmet #coffee, you HAVE to check out Zeke's Beans & Bowls. Their #acai bowls, made-to-order with fresh fruit, will knock your socks off! This is their North Pole Bowl, acai topped with granola, banana, mango, blueberries, cocoanut and almonds. The cafe's eclectic, retro-beach vibe is also a #morning mood lifter. #loveva #vafood #goodmorning #wakeup #getinmybelly #freshfruit @visitvabeach @zekesvb

    Spit a Seed for Me

    by Casey | Posted on August 3rd, 2011

    Southwest Virginia Farmers' Market

    Happy National Watermelon Day!

    It is my favorite summer fruit and I am not ashamed to say that I could eat a hefty load of that beautiful, pink, watery sweetness. Add a dash of salt and you’ve got an unbeatable picnic “dessert” that everyone will enjoy.

    In honor of National Watermelon Day, go grab one! There are numerous Virginia farmers’ markets open today, so pick the one closest to you:

    This is just a quick glimpse to show you a few possibilities. See more extensive offerings at www.Virginia.org/FarmersMarkets. While you’re there, go ahead and make your list of visits for next week, as Governor McDonnell has proclaimed August 7-13, 2011 as Virginia Farmer’s Market Week!
