Last week, Liz Moore & AssociatesTim Parker and Cyril Petrop hosted 65 members of the Williamsburg Symphony League and their guests for an Encore Affair to benefit the symphony.

The event was hosted at 160 John Browning in Kingsmill, a spectacular, one of a kind home overlooking Wareham’s Pond.

Mark Twain (an actual descendant of Samuel Clemons) regaled the sold out audience with tales of life and adventures on the river, while they enjoyed a wine bar and light h’ors doeuvres on the screened porch.

Rumor has it that Twain is interested in the house due to its unique architecture and perch high atop the pond, so if you’re interested in seeing it for yourself, you had better hurry!

Liz Moore Agents Complete the Hampton Home Repair Blitz

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, May 10, 2017 @ 03:26 PM

IMG_6531.jpgVarious organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority, and the City of Hampton, came together on Saturday, May 6, 2017 to complete the Hampton Home Repair Blitz. Six homeowners in the North Phoebus area had homes that received exterior repairs including painting, fascia/wooden trim replacement, railing additions, storm doors, gutter work, power washing, light landscaping and more. Interior painting, minor repairs and landscaping were also done to beautify Bryan and Moton Elementary Schools. 

Our very own Patrick Pauls masterfully built an impressive wooden platform with railing to aid a homeowner who was unable to go out the back door due to a disability and deteriorating steps.  Kaera Mims was the team lead and Nadia Anac was not only a great help with her painting skills, but she brought some friends who were so helpful!

The Best Brunch Spots In Virginia - Richmond and Hampton Made the List!

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Fri, Feb 24, 2017 @ 02:53 PM

Pavilion_cafe_breakfast.jpgVirginia.org recently published a list of the 13 best brunch spots in Virginia.  The list contains spots known for quality food, service, atmosphere...and maybe most importantly, quality cocktails!  Restaurants from Northern Virginia down to Virginia Beach are known to be crowd pleasers, and a few are even located in our backyard!

Venture Kitchen & Bar—Hampton

Sunday 10am-2pm

At Venture Kitchen & Bar, brunch is serious business. Not only does the restaurant have a regular brunch menu that is reliably tasty, but they also have a rotating menu that changes every week so that you can try something new. When it comes to Sunday brunch cocktails, you’ll find some “old faithfuls” like mimosas, but there are many intriguing options as well, like the French 75 and the Queen’s Cousin.

Local Favorites: Fried Eggs Benedict, Orange Blossom Cocktail, Corned Beef Hash

Millie’s Diner—Richmond

Saturday 10am-3pm, Sunday 9am-3pm

This popular Richmond spot has been around for over 25 years, but their tasty brunch menu never gets old. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Richmond residents flock to Millie’s Diner for one of the best brunches in the city. Although the wait can sometimes be over an hour to get in, the food is more than worth it. Plus, the bartender will fix you up with mimosas or Bloody Marys that will make the time seem to fly by.

Local Favorites: Devil’s Mess, Huevos Rancheros

The Jefferson Hotel—Richmond

Sunday 10:30am-1:30pm

If you’re planning on eating brunch at The Jefferson Hotel, make sure you are ready to “tuck in”, as they say. Sunday Champagne Brunch at this historic Richmond location has seemingly endless tables of some of the finest food imaginable, including a platter of smoked salmon and a full seafood raw bar, an impressive ham carved to order, an omelet station manned by several chefs, a lavish dessert display, and so much more (Including bottomless mimosas and coffee!). We could go on and on about this brunch, but you need to experience it yourself to understand why every Richmonder will recommend The Jefferson as a must-visit brunch destination.

 Local Favorites: Raw Seafood Bar, Omelet Station

Next time you find yourself asking, "where should we eat brunch", consider one of these local favorites!

Great restaurants...just another reason why we Love Where We Live!!!
