This year's Best of C-VILLE boasts 191 categories—almost 100 more than in years past!—which means nearly 100 new opportunities to recognize the best people, places, and things in our city.

We’re always interested in writing about local history here at C-VILLE, and this week’s feature definitely counts (p. 12). We’re talking burgers, yes, but there’s more to it than that. Taking a tour of local burger joints is an opportunity to spin through the town’s past. Some of our most venerable restaurants are greasy grills, from Riverside on the east side of town, to Mel’s on West Main, to the White Spot on the Corner. (Mel’s has been in business for more than three decades, and it’s the youngest member of that trio.) For better or worse, the burger is a symbol of American culture, in all its oily decadence—whether you’re a fan of burgers or not, you have to admit that our city does them well. As far as I’m concerned, few things hit the spot like a perfect burger. It’s a study in balance: the richness of the meat contrasts with the tangy ketchup. The sizzling patty matches the crunchy, cool lettuce. The melty cheese softens the fluffy bun. Unparalleled stuff, really. And yes, it’s unhealthy, and yes, eating beef is bad for the environment. But after this year, I’d say we’ve earned it. Eat up!—Ben Hitchcock

has not acknowledged that Joe Biden legitimately won the presidential election. The former investor pumped almost $6 million of his own money into the campaign, leading all Republicans in spending. Just 30,000 voters cast ballots in the convention, a controversial ranked-choice-voting affair, which was held in drive-through locations around the state. Results were slow to arrive because all ballots had to be transported to Richmond and hand counted, to demonstrate the Republican party’s commitment to election security. Entrepreneur Pete Snyder finished second, conservative firebrand state Senator Amanda Chase came in third, and longtime legislator Kirk Cox finished fourth. In November, Youngkin will go head to head with the winner of the June 8 Democratic primary.

Reopening could mean concerts at JPJ sooner rather than later.

Governor Ralph Northam is trying the old bribery technique. Last Thursday, he announced that Virginia will fully reopen by June 15—if, that is, vaccine numbers continue to rise and statewide COVID case numbers continue to fall. “If you’re planning your swim league, or if you are planning for opening your theater, or if you are planning your yoga studio, plan on June 15 to be able to go to

full capacity,” said Northam’s Chief of Staff Clark Mercer. Other states have been even more explicit in tying reopening to vaccine rates. West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced last week that he would lift indoor mask restrictions if 70 percent of the state got at least one shot. President Biden’s goal is for 70 percent of Americans to receive one shot by July 4.

As of Monday, 47 percent of Virginians have had at least one shot, and 35 percent are fully vaccinated. According to The New York Times, the commonwealth ranks 14th nationwide in percent vaccinated, and Albemarle and Charlottesville continue to be among the most-vaccinated localities in the state: 45 percent of Albemarle and 41 percent of Charlottesville are fully inoculated.

Kardinal Hall boss Joshua Hunt took to Facebook over the weekend to apologize for his restaurant accidentally hosting a rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Snyder. Hunt wrote that the beer garden was reserved by a purported “non-profit group,” and that “at no time did [they] mention that the event would be a political rally”—so you can imagine the surprise of patrons and proprietors alike when Snyder and 5th District Republican Congressman Bob Good showed up. Must have been unbeerable!

Businessman Glenn Youngkin triumphed in the Virginia GOP’s convoluted gubernatorial primary late on Monday night. Throughout his campaign, the candidate styled himself as a political outsider. Before jumping in the race, Youngkin spent 25 years working for an inside-thebeltway private equity firm called The Carlyle Group, which came under scrutiny for its role in weapons manufacturing and trade in the early 2000s. And though he considers himself an outsider, Youngkin hasn’t shied away from Republican-spearheaded culture wars, recently posting a series of videos lambasting critical race theory on his social media accounts. During the campaign, Youngkin was endorsed by Republican Senator Ted Cruz and former Confederate-flag-waving gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart. Youngkin also

Nearly one year after ending Charlottesville City Schools’ contract with the city police department, the division’s school board unanimously voted last week to replace armed school resource officers with unarmed care and safety assistants. The new assistants will monitor hallways and common areas, build positive relationships with students, and use deescalation techniques to resolve conflicts, among other duties. Candidates must have at least six months of experience working with adolescents, but those hired will receive extensive training. In the coming weeks, the board will come to a new agreement with CPD, finalizing which scenarios will require schools to still contact police.

Open doors By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

The majority of Piedmont Virginia Community College students will not have to pay tuition and fees during the 2021-2022 school year.

To help more Virginians get back to work, the General Assembly recently passed the Get Skilled, Get a Job, Give Back initiative, which will cover state community college tuition, fees, and books for low- and middle-income students pursuing high-demand careers, including health care, information technology, manufacturing, public safety, and early childhood education. The program, which goes into effect this fall, will also provide financial assistance for necessary expenses like food, child care, and transportation. “[G3] does not cover our students who are in what we call our transfer programs, which

lead to a bachelor’s degree,” says Friedman. “That’s over 60 percent of our students.” Thanks to stimulus money from the American Rescue Plan—combined with Pell grants, state funds, and community donations— PVCC is now able to waive tuition and fees for all students not covered by the G3 program. While G3 has no expiration date, PVCC.4u will end after next spring. But Friedman remains hopeful the program can become permanent, pointing to President Joe Biden’s plan to make community college free nationwide. “There is an opportunity here for Congress to act,” says Friedman. “We are very hopeful that they will.”

“[Online learning] was very convenient for students, especially those who are parents raising kids.” FRANK FRIEDMAN, PRESIDENT OF PIEDMONT VIRGINIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE

hile the daily decrease in coronavirus infections offers a light at the end of the tunnel, the nation’s economy continues to struggle to recover from the ongoing pandemic. Millions of Americans remain unemployed, including over 60,000 Virginia residents. Now more than ever, many are looking to start a new job or career, but may not have the right skills or education to get their foot in the door. For people who want to return to school— or go for the first time—cost in the Charlottesville area no longer has to be a barrier. Piedmont Virginia Community College is offering free tuition and fees for the majority of its students during the 2021-2022 school year. “There are a lot of people out there in central Virginia that are saying to themselves, ‘What am I going to do next? What’s my next job [or] career?’” says PVCC President Frank Friedman. “They need to get a new skill set and prepare themselves for the future, but don’t have the money to enroll.” “That’s when we sat down and said, ‘What can we do to help those people?’” he says. “How can we make PVCC even more affordable?” The new program, dubbed PVCC.4u, is open to all Virginia residents who make less than $100,000 a year, or who were laid off or furloughed due to the pandemic. To get the free ride, students need to fill out a financial aid application and enroll in at least six credit hours this fall. Those who earn a 2.0 GPA or higher will have their spring tuition and fees covered too, saving students up to $5,000 in total.

Since the pandemic hit, PVCC students have largely been learning over Zoom. Last fall, the school allowed a small portion of its courses to begin safely meeting face-toface, but with only a handful students in the classroom at a time. “Those are classes that require labs, are studio art classes, or are hands-on types of classes, where you have to interact with the equipment,” says Friedman. “Try learning to be a welder online!” But thanks to Virginia’s successful vaccine rollout, the school plans to completely “return to normal” this fall, Friedman says. All classes will be offered in-person (with masks required), along with the typical onlineonly courses. However, he anticipates a slight increase in online offerings at PVCC. Pre-COVID, nearly a quarter of the school’s courses were already taught online, making the transition to all-virtual learning a bit easier. “Some faculty who had not taught online before but then had to during the pandemic, they realized it was a good mode of instruction,” says Friedman. “Their students were doing well in the course, and it was very convenient for students, especially those who are parents raising kids.” Typically when unemployment rates go up, more people enroll in community colleges. But over the past year, enrollment has decreased by about 6 percent at PVCC, which currently has around 5,000 students enrolled in credit courses. Another 3,000 are enrolled in non-credit workforce training programs. “People didn’t know how long [the pandemic] would last, what its impact would be, what jobs would exist or not exist,” says Friedman, explaining the drop in enrollment. “And people just didn’t have money.”

wo weeks ago, Pertelle Gilmore received an urgent phone call— there was a conflict going on at the Westhaven public housing community. Joined by a few other members of the B.U.C.K. Squad, he rushed to the scene to urge everyone involved to stand down and put away their guns. But while the violence interrupters talked to one group, the other one started shooting. “Two truckloads of guys pulled up [and] let loose,” says Gilmore, executive director of the B.U.C.K.—Brothers United to Cease the Killing—Squad. “Kids were everywhere. There were probably about 30 kids out there.” “Someone got shot that night,” he says. The victim survived, and is in stable condition. According to Gilmore, this shooting could have been prevented if the all-volunteer squad had enough violence interrupters on the scene to deescalate both parties at the same time. But a majority of the squad’s members were at work, and couldn’t get there before the bullets started flying. Multiple shootings have occurred in or near public housing in the last month. The first weekend of May saw four separate shotsfired incidents, according to the Charlottesville Police Department. Around the country, gun violence increases during the summer, Gilmore warns. “We’ve been inside during the cold months, but once the first semblance of some warmth comes out, people come out,” he says. “You have these various personalities and egos in these neighborhoods. The more egos you got the more clashes you have.” In response to the gun violence spike in Charlottesville’s predominantly Black communities over the past year, the B.U.C.K. Squad began intervening in conflicts in January, talking down groups before they turned to violence. The following month, City Council donated about $20,000 to the squad for conflict resolution training. Since then, the volunteers have relied on community donations, which currently cover only basic expenses, Gilmore says. Despite these financial limitations, the group has been largely successful. Out of the 46 conflicts its members have intervened in, only three resulted in shootings. According to operations director Herb Dickerson, the squad needs around 30 additional members to fully handle the anticipated summer rise in gun violence.

With its limited resources, Guns Down Virginia, an affiliated group, has also kicked off several initiatives to tackle the root causes of violence, including youth mentorship, grief counseling, gun buybacks, and community events. When asked about Gilmore’s calls for funding, City Councilor Sena Magill said the city is working to address gun violence from “multiple directions.” “We are looking into a number of things, including how to maximize city dollars with possible other grants and multiple interventions that need to take place,” says Magill, speaking only for herself. Councilor Lloyd Snook echoed Magill’s sentiments, explaining that the city will likely use state and federal funds to tackle the problem. Gilmore has also had success securing funding from angel investors. This month, Guns Down received $10,000 from local entrepreneur David Manka, who Gilmore says has challenged every well-off white Charlottesville resident to match his donation. “It’s embarrassing that we live in such an affluent, rich, and wealthy community and have to fight for funding to cure something as atrocious as the murder and homicide of Black babies,” says Gilmore. “I find it disgraceful to say I’m a Charlottesvillian, and walk on the Downtown Mall and see people who I know can change the whole trajectory of a generation of Black people with one check.” “An attitude of indifference [is] a part of the problem,” he says. “Play your part, and let’s change the city.” To donate to the B.U.C.K. Squad, visit bucksquad911.org.

Both districts have had difficulty recruiting drivers. Decreased bus ridership does not mean fewer drivers are required— routes cover significant ground and in many cases cannot be combined. The city was recruiting pre-pandemic, but the issue has worsened due to driver retirements and ongoing challenges with COVID-19. Foley encourages people to apply for the now-$16-per-hour job. Drivers can gain Virginia Retirement System benefits with just six hours per day, he says. With a minimum five hours a day, 10 months a year, a driver gets health care benefits too. And riding the bus is better for the environment and safer than individual transportation: Foley says each full bus would keep about 36 cars from driving to schools— and school-provided transportation is eight times safer than parent transportation and 40 times safer than teen transportation. Looking ahead, the city hopes to find more drivers for an anticipated summer school. The county plans to begin allowing two students per seat this summer. The county also plans to install new federally funded air filtration systems by the fall, Foley says. The HEPA systems are the same that airplanes use, and would make riding safer for more students at once. Meanwhile, school districts anxiously await news of expanded access to vaccines—Pfizer is expected to soon authorize its vaccine for use on children as young as 12. Phil Giaramita, ACPS strategic communications officer, says the schools will continue to adjust their transportation plans based on the experts’ vaccine recommendations.

May 12 – 18, 2021 c-ville.com

he wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round—until COVID hits. And since the start of the pandemic, city and county bus systems have encountered many bumps and unexpected curves. Before COVID, the city averaged about 2,600 bus riders per day. Currently, that number is down to 1,033, and some buses are becoming emptier as ridership dwindles along certain routes. High schools in particular have light loads in some areas, as parents and some students have opted to drive. Fluctuation in the number of students who ride—and where they live—has meant constant adjusting for drivers. Typically, the school systems conduct one routing per school year. In 2020-2021, the Albemarle County schools routing staff used software (and bus drivers’ valuable knowledge) to generate five different routing schedules, as situations changed rapidly. Donna Fortune says the county, where she has driven for 11 years, was supportive when drivers returned to deliver students to in-person classes again. And she was happy to be behind the wheel again after being “heartbroken” when buses were suspended in 2020, because she missed her young passengers. “We were given good transportation and routing information,” Fortune says. “We received lists of all students, and what day of the week they are riding.” Learning the new, complicated routes wasn’t easy, though. Some kids go to school on Monday and

Wednesday, some go on Tuesday and Thursday, and some go all four of those days. On Fridays, when most students attend school remotely, county buses shuttle supplies to kids—books, projects, equipment, paperwork—so they can work effectively at home. Buses also deliver lunch to those who need it. Drivers are worn out in general, says ACPS Transportation Director Jim Foley. Often, they drive two shifts each morning and afternoon to accommodate both elementary and middle/high school students. The drivers have also been tasked with disinfecting the bus, and are expected to enforce the mask requirement, which is tricky. Fortune says the kids have been excited to see each other, and are very talkative. “They enjoy socializing,” she says. Some bus routes have few or zero kids on them, and others have had waitlists for seats, though the city school district says it has “been able to meet all known needs for students of families who elected in-person school and require bus service to attend.” In the county, the largest bus holds 77 students, but during COVID that number shrunk to 25 with distancing, says Foley. All area buses have a one-child-per-seat policy, except for siblings, who can ride two to a seat. Foley says that children cannot pick and choose when they ride the bus. “If a student is not on the bus for 10 days and that information is verified with parents or through the schools, then that child would be removed as a bus rider, and someone on the waiting list would get a bus seat,” he says. The city follows a similar process for its routes.

Served on a housemade brioche bun with plenty of hand-cut fries, The Hotness is spicy perfection that’ll leave you full for the next three days.—Susan Sorensen

...marshal the Gus Burger into the future

I have two conditions for a perfect sandwich: First, it’s got to have fresh, sustainable, locally sourced ingredients. Second, it should be so loaded I can barely open my jaw wide enough to eat it. The Whiskey Jar’s Crunch Burger delivers on both fronts. Perfectly seasoned beef from Timbercreek Farm topped with fresh green tomato, rich pimento, and crunchy chicken crackling on an eggy brioche bun, this delight leaves me comatose and smiling every time.—Will Ham

an anything overshadow the legendary Gus Burger at The White Spot? By today’s standards, the Gus is a humble hamburger sandwich. But it was revolutionary 65 years ago for the fried egg tucked in its bun, and its lore has grown as generations of UVA students have stumbled into The White Spot late at night to sop up the suds in their stomachs. “You can’t find better,” former White Spot owner Dmitri Tevampis said in a 2014 C-VILLE Weekly interview. “At three in the morning after the bar, you eat the Gus, and you’re done.” Indeed, the name Gus has grown to be synonymous with the Spot. But another big name now shares the marquee. Ralph Sampson, the former UVA basketball great and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer, is part of an ownership group that purchased the small grill and dining room on the UVA Corner in January. “Sometimes investments are heartfelt, and about tradition and legacy,” Sampson says. “It was done for the right reasons. The traditions in Charlottesville are very special.” Sampson said the 15-person ownership group, which has “more things to come in Charlottesville,” is composed of UVA alumni and at least three former White Spot employees.

According to Sampson, the new ownership team isn’t likely to change much at the Spot. “Maybe a few additions,” he says. “It just needs some TLC. Why change something everyone loves?” That means the Gus Burger should remain the same as it has been since around 1955: an all-beef patty topped with cheese, egg, lettuce, and tomato. Like the memories of so many who’ve enjoyed the Gus, the hamburger’s history is a bit fuzzy. Paul Dunsmore founded The White Spot at 1407 University Ave. in 1953. He memorialized the Gus a few years after opening, naming the burger in honor of Dr. Gus Egor, who the diner’s website indicates would “traverse University Avenue daily to order a cheeseburger topped with a fried egg.” No record of a professor Egor at UVA is readily available, however. Dunsmore always said it was the decision to keep The White Spot open nearly all night that drove its success and kept the Gus on folks’ minds. The restaurant offered nothing more than a counter and kitchen when Dunsmore built it out of a former beauty salon, but third owner Tevampis expanded in 2005. Annexing the neighboring space formerly occupied by a jewelry and gift store, The White Spot added tables to the 11 counter barstools it solely relied on for 50 years. Tevampis worked The White Spot tirelessly for two decades and was a constant champion of the Gus and the diner’s other delicacies like the Grillswith, two grilled Krispy Kreme donuts with a scoop

A sign on the window of Mel’s Cafe advertises the best burger in town, and if you’re looking for a classic, downthe-middle, no-nonsense burger, I’d say the sign is spot on. The patties have a nice char on the outside and they’re packed with meaty flavor. The fries are crispy and well seasoned. It’s all ready quickly at an unbeatable price point. Mel’s is a Charlottesville institution for a reason.—Ben Hitchcock

No Bull There’s nothing impossible about No Bull’s burgers. Created locally by a mom and her daughters, the plant-based veggie burger is now available at Whole Foods, Kroger, Wegmans, and countless restaurants on the East Coast. No Bull offers a hearty bite that starts with lentils, uses organic ingredients, and currently comes in five flavors. For an all-in Charlottesville experience, track down Firefly On The Fly food truck at Festy and devour a No Bull mushroom lentil burger with greens, tomato, and mushroom gravy as you watch a local band in front of the sunset.—Tami Keaveny

The Gus Burger—an all-beef patty topped with cheese, egg, lettuce, and tomato—hasn’t changed since it appeared on The White Spot menu in 1955.

like the Grillswith, two grilled Krispy Kreme donuts with a scoop of ice cream. “First you have the Gus, then the Grills,” Tevampis said in the 2014 interview. “A lot of people, as soon as they come to the airport, they come straight here. The White Spot—everybody knows it, young and old people. Everybody who passes through the university. That is the same with the Gus. These people come here, they say it is the best burger.” Not all local burger bingers agree that the Gus is still tops, but it has its supporters. “I had never heard of a fried egg on a burger before moving to town, but it was a light-bulb moment,” local sandwich enthusiast and UVA employee Geoff Otis says. “The Gus Burger is great because you get to step outside the typical extravagant toppings that pile up so high you can barely fit the thing in your mouth. Plus, you get to eat it in The White Spot.” Sampson, too, says he enjoyed a few Gus Burgers during his time at UVA. A skinny kid trying to fill out a gigantic 7'4" frame, he recalls, “I wanted to gain weight, so I could eat whatever I wanted.” During his own tenure at the Spot, Tevampis refused to tinker with tradition. Want toppings on your Grillswith? No way. Want the fried egg on your Gus over-easy? Forget about it. “I try to keep it always the same—I don’t want to change,” he told C-VILLE. “Got to be dry—it’s more safe.” Tevampis launched the annual Gus Burger eating contest in 2002, and the springtime event has attracted national media attention and countless gustatorial feats. This past April’s eating contest champion downed four burgers in just six minutes—the time limit for the contest—and the record is said to be eight Guses in a single sitting. But for Sampson and so many other Wahoos, the Gus lives on not because of annual media coverage, but because of its accessibility on the Corner and its ability to satisfy those late-night munchies. “Everyone has a memory of The White Spot after a game,” Sampson says. “I lived on the Lawn my senior year, and walking from room number six to the Corner definitely provided me a lot of memories.”

CULTURE THE WORKS

Lightening up Jeff Dobrow’s Brighter Together celebrates art and community at UVA By Dan Goff arts@c-ville.com

COURTESY OF SUBJECT

O

f all the changes COVID has brought to the arts world, one of the most significant has been to big-screen entertainment. Charlottesville theaters and moviemakers have done their best to adapt, whether it’s drive-in film festivals or rent-a-theater evenings, but the pandemic has undeniably sped up the trend of people consuming entertainment alone and on decidedly smaller screens. Jeff Dobrow, a visual and technology artist based in Charlottesville, has given a lot of thought to this. “We are so used to consuming amazing experiences in small ways,” he says. “Our laptop screen is 17 inches. That’s our new world.” He argues that it doesn’t have to be that way. Brighter Together, Dobrow’s ongoing series of visual shows through UVA Arts, is his solution to the small-screen problem. Since late March, Dobrow has been using projection mapping technology to display a variety of images on various buildings on Grounds, starting with the chapel and concluding on May 14 and 15 with Madison Hall.

For Brighter Together, visual artist Jeff Dobrow took the small screen to the big screen by displaying his work on several UVA architectural icons, such as the Rotunda (above). The series finale is May 14 and 15 at Madison Hall.

The intended result is to inspire both awe and hope—awe at the dazzling, enormous images transforming iconic architecture, and hope about the ability to safely draw crowds of art lovers together in the same space. Creating such larger-than-life projections may seem like a daunting task, but it’s business as usual for Dobrow, who’s been working in technology since he was a teen. (“It’s been my entire life, since I started programming computers for RadioShack in 1983.”) Much of his early career was devoted to the commercial side of the field, but he says that one day he woke up, “did a 180,” and immersed himself in the arts instead. Dobrow had been living and working in Charlottesville for several years when UVA Arts reached out to him about the Brighter Together project. “I’ve known Jody [Kielbasa] for probably five or six years,” he says, explaining that this wasn’t the first time he’d been offered an opportunity to work with the university. Back in 2017, he and Kielbasa, UVA’s vice provost for the arts, had “chatted about the bicentennial”—an event that heavily utilized projection mapping on the Rotunda, displaying a visual history of the building—“but that was not my kind of

CULTURE ALL YOU CAN EAT

Whip it good Janey Gioiosa takes on recipes and cancer in new YouTube series By Alana Bittner living@c-ville.com

After two bouts with cancer, Janey Gioiosa created “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” as a way to connect with those going through something similar, and to teach everyone how to have fun while cooking.

facebook.com/cville.weekly

The resources around her didn’t make things better. “You watch cancer movies all the time and they have all these friends who have cancer,” Gioiosa recalls. “I’m like, where are my fucking cancer friends! That I can bitch to and relate to, just the simplest thing!” In that vacuum of connection, unlikely things stood out—such as a YouTube series called “Shit Cancer Patients Say.” “It was one glimmer of like, ‘Yes!’ I watched those videos over and over again, because it didn’t feel like I was alone.” After her second battle with the disease, Gioiosa had newfound determination. “There is a pre-cancer Janey and a post-cancer Janey, and they’re very different people,” she says. “I’d always wanted to do culinary school and I never did, so I just did it.” She

completed the two-year culinary program at Piedmont Virginia Community College and entered the Charlottesville restaurant scene. If you live here and eat food, it was probably made by Gioiosa at some point. She’s worked in local favorites from Brazos Tacos to Petite MarieBette. Yet Gioiosa knew she still had work to do. “I’ve always disliked the saying that everything happens for a reason,” she says. “I’ve turned it into, ‘You make a reason out of something.’ So what’s the reason I got cancer?” “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” has given her an opportunity to provide the community she yearned for as a young person who was sick. The recipes come from moments in her journey. Those soft pretzels, for example, were first made during an early round of treatment. However, she eventually wants to shift the focus from herself, and she plans to bring in guests to tell their stories about cancer and food. It could be memories, she says, but it could also be, “What did you crave or what did you wish you could eat?” No matter how “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” evolves, its goal will remain the same. “I just want that person that was like me when I was 19 or 23 to not feel so alone,” says Gioiosa. “That’s success there, period. Signed, sealed, delivered.” You can find “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” on YouTube (Janey Gioiosa) and Instagram (@janeygioiosa).

@cville_culture

’m cooking along with local chef Janey Gioiosa’s “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” on YouTube, and get halfway through the video before I realize I’ve overlooked something on the list of ingredients—yeast. This recipe is a brave choice for me. As far as I’m concerned, pretzels come from Auntie Anne’s at the Fashion Square Mall. Yet in her rustic Crozet kitchen, Gioiosa’s easygoing attitude gives me the confidence to think I can pull this off. But as I follow her direction, and pour lukewarm water into a mixing bowl, something hits me: Pretzels need yeast. Images of flat, concrete slabs of pretzel flash before my eyes. I rummage desperately through the fridge, the implications of last March’s global yeast shortage suddenly becoming clear. Just when I’m sure my pretzel venture is shot, I see it. There, at the back of the cheese drawer, is a jar of bakers’ yeast. Several risings later, I pull out huge, goldenbrown soft pretzels, just as Gioiosa promised. Auntie Anne’s, eat your heart out. For anyone intimidated by making pretzels, or any recipe for that matter, “A Kind (of) Cooking Show” is for you. Gioiosa takes the kind part seriously in two ways: She sets a goal of kindness, not perfection, and she says “If I make a mistake, I’ll show you that I made a mistake. So it’s just kind of a cooking show.” Gioiosa begins the pretzel video by shouting “Take one!” with a determined clap. Thirty seconds and a few montages later, she’s at “Take 12!” The winning intro is, “Welcome to ‘A Kind of Cooking Show.’ My name’s Janey. We’re gonna make some shit up today.” At times, Gioiosa’s dog wanders in to see what’s going on. At others, her husband (musician Will Overman) hands her utensils from offscreen. She frequently sings her sentences and sometimes forgets the egg and butter. The effect is charming and utterly authentic. It’s when we’re twisting dough into pretzels, that Gioiosa says, “So…cancer.” Gioiosa was 19 when she was diagnosed with uterine sarcoma. She was plucked from typical teenage soul-searching, and thrown into a new reality of hospitals, scans, and chemotherapy. She fought it off, only to have it return when she was 23. Today, not yet 30, Gioiosa is a two-time cancer survivor. She’s thankful for the support from her family and friends. But still, being a young adult with cancer was isolating. “You’re in this weird in-between, where you’re too old for pediatric care but too young for the older generation,” Gioiosa explains. “Nineteen is a weird age where you’re becoming an adult and you want that independence.” As her friends went to college and began their new lives, Gioiosa watched from the hospital, feeling more dependent than ever.

show.” When Dobrow gave up commercial art, he also shifted away from chronological storytelling in his visuals, opting for more loosely conceptual work. His style didn’t mesh with the bicentennial’s, but it proved to be perfect for Brighter Together. True to form, Dobrow consciously chooses not to tell a story with his work on these buildings—either of the university at large or of the pandemic year. “I didn’t want to create a piece that contemplated…the horrible reality [of 2020],” he says. “We’ve had enough of that. Let’s dance, let’s have some fun.” Fun doesn’t begin to describe the sublime projections. Some of the images are recognizable and taken from the animal kingdom, like a tiger prowling across the surface of the chapel or a butterfly visiting flowers on the Rotunda—a decidedly more peaceful image than the bicentennial’s flaming Rotunda, itself a callback to the disastrous real-life fire of 1895. Other Dobrow images, rippling and morphing shapes and patterns, are less rooted in reality. Everything is connected by different selections of EDM music that can be heard at each of the Brighter Together events. Dobrow identifies these soundtracks, and how they interact with the visuals, as the most important relationship in his artwork, aside from the relationship between the art and the building onto which it’s projected. For Brighter Together, he enlisted the help of Red Flower Lake, a local husband-andwife group that has done audio engineering for Dave Matthews. The duo’s otherworldly tunes pair nicely with Dobrow’s trippy visuals, creating a product that might be commonplace at a music festival, but is considerably more remarkable when projected onto UVA’s historic buildings. Projection mapping is still a new art form, particularly in the U.S. “It’s huge in the rest of the world and has been for years,” says Dobrow. “Like most things in the United States, our first exposure to it was...through revenue-generating advertising.” He’s advocating for it to become a more accepted medium, both for patrons of the arts and for aspiring creators. “A huge part of what I do is education, especially for at-risk kids. No one has heard of [projection mapping], but a lot of it is accessible.” Not only is the concept relatively recent, Dobrow says it’s also constantly in flux thanks to continual technological improvements— or, in his words, “basically everything that’s going to turn us into Terminator 2.” It’s already incredible, he stresses—the GPU technology he’s used for Brighter Together enables the images to interact with the music in real time—and it’s becoming more advanced by the day. He contrasts the canvas and brush process of traditional painting with the more complex world of projection mapping. “With technology, we are experiencing things we didn’t think we could do.” What Dobrow wants to emphasize most—and what’s hardest to convey in a newspaper article—is the sheer magnitude of his projects. He says the creation of his projections often gives him small-screen fatigue, hunched over “my little laptop for endless periods of time…but when I go and put it back on the building, it’s huge. It’s everything. The transformation hits me every time.”

Taurus STAUNTON, VA

LIVE THEATRE IS BACK!

(April 20-May 20): A fan once asked the prolific composer Johann Sebastian Bach about his creative process. How did he dream up such a constant flow of new music? Bach told his admirer that the tunes came to him unbidden. When he woke up each morning, they were already announcing themselves in his head. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Taurus, a comparable phenomenon may very well visit you in the coming weeks—not in the form of music, but as intuitions and insights about your life and your future. Your main job is to be receptive to them, and make sure you remember them.

Gemini

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 2010, an American engineer named Edward Pimentel went to Moscow to compete in the World Karaoke Championship. He won by singing Usher’s “DJ Got Us Falling in Love.” His award: one million dumplings, enough to last him 27 years. I have a good feeling about the possibility of you, too, collecting a new prize or perk or privilege sometime soon. I just hope it’s a healthier boon than dumplings. For best results, take some time now to clearly define the nature of the prize or perk or privilege that you really want—and that will be truly useful.

(May 21-June 20): “I love unmade beds,” writes Gemini poet Shane Koyczan. “I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds.” In the coming days, Gemini, I encourage you to specialize in moments like those: when you and the people you’re interested in are candid, unguarded, raw, vulnerable, and primed to go deeper. In my opinion, your soul needs the surprising healing that will come from these experiences.

Dark magic and darker urges prevail in this tale of unchecked ambition, with murder begetting murder and blood thirsting for blood.

(June 21-July 22): Trailblazing psychologist Carl Jung said his loneliness wasn’t about a lack of people around him. Rather, it came from the fact that he knew things that most people didn’t know and didn’t want to know. He had no possibility of communicating many of the interesting truths that were important to him! But I’m guessing that won’t be much of a problem for you in the coming months. According to my astrological analysis, you’re more likely to be well-listened to and understood than you have been in quite some time. For best results, ask to be listened to and understood. And think about how you might express yourself in ways that are likely to be interesting and useful to others.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The French government regularly gives the Legion of Honor award to people deemed to have provided exceptional service to the world. Most recipients are deserving, but a few have been decidedly unworthy. In the latter category are Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, as well as drug-cheating athlete Lance Armstrong, sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, and Nazi collaborator Marshal Pétain. I bring this to your attention, Leo, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to reward people who have helped and supported you. But I also suggest that you pointedly exclude those who have too many negatives mixed in with their positives.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22): I will love it if sometime soon you find or create an opportunity to speak words similar to what novelist D. H. Lawrence once wrote to a lover: “You seem to have knit all things in a piece for me. Things are not separate; they are all in a symphony.” In other words, Libra, I’ll be ecstatic if you experience being in such synergistic communion with an empathic ally that the two of you weave a vision of life that’s vaster and richer than either one of you could summon by yourself. The astrological omens suggest this possibility is now more likely than usual.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometimes people don’t like the provocative posts I publish on Facebook. They leave comments like, “You stupid idiot!” or “I hope you commit suicide!” and far worse. When I delete their messages, they become even more enraged, accusing me of censorship. “So you don’t believe in free speech, you jerk?” they complain. I don’t try to reason with them. They don’t deserve any of my time or energy. But if I did communicate with them, I might say, “My Facebook page is my sanctuary, where I welcome cordial conversation. If you came into my house and called me an idiot, would it be ‘censorship’ if I told you to leave?” I hope these thoughts inspire you to clarify and refine your own personal boundaries, Scorpio. It’s a good time to get precise and definite about what’s acceptable and unacceptable from the people with whom you engage.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Have you ever kissed a monster in your nightly dreams? Have you won a chess match with a demon or signed


Q&A a beneficial contract with a ghost or received a useful blessing from a pest? I highly recommend activities like those in the coming weeks—both while you’re asleep and awake. Now is a good time to at least make peace with challenging influences, and at best come into a new relationship with them that serves you better. I dare you to ask for a gift from an apparent adversary.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What does it mean to “follow the path with heart”? I invite you to meditate on that question. Here are my ideas. To follow the path with heart means choosing a destiny that appeals to your feelings as well as to your ambitions and ideas and habits. To follow a path with heart means living a life that fosters your capacity to give and receive love. To follow the path with heart means honoring your deepest intuitions rather than the expectations other people have about you. To follow the path with heart means never comparing your progress with that of anyone else’s, but rather simply focusing on being faithful to your soul’s code.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It’s a good thing when people are different from your images of them,” wrote Aquarian author Boris Pasternak. “It shows they are not merely a type. If you can’t place them in a category, it means that at least a part of them is what a human being ought to be. They have risen above themselves, they have a grain of immortality.” I love that perspective! I’m offering it to you because right now is a favorable time to show that you are indeed different from the images people have of you; that you transcend all stereotyping; that you are uncategorizable.

(March 21-April 19): In one of her poems, Emily Dickinson tells us, “The pedigree of honey / Does not concern the bee; / A clover, any time, to him / Is aristocracy.” I suggest you be like Dickinson’s bee in the coming weeks, my dear Aries. Take pleasure and power where they are offered. Be receptive to just about any resource that satisfies your raw need. Consider the possibility that substitutes and stand-ins may be just as good as the supposed original. Okay? Don’t be too fussy about how pure or prestigious anything is.

Describe your perfect burger.

(Feb. 19-March 20): You have personal possession of the universe’s most monumental creation: consciousness. This mercurial flash and dazzle whirling around inside you is outlandishly spectacular. You can think thoughts any time you want to—soaring, luminescent, flamboyant thoughts or shriveled, rusty, burrowing thoughts; thoughts that can invent or destroy, corrupt or redeem, bless or curse. There’s more. You can revel and wallow in great oceans of emotion. Whether they are poignant or intoxicating or somewhere in between, you relish the fact that you can harbor so much intensity. You cherish the privilege of commanding such extravagant life force. I bring these thoughts to your attention because the time is right for a holiday I call Celebrate Your Greatest Gifts.

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY

NEWS & VIEWS Local Real Estate News Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® Endorse Wade for City Council The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® (CAAR) formally endorsed Juandiego Wade for Charlottesville City Council. The endorsement comes after candidate interviews and deliberations by both the Candidate Funding Project Team and the CAAR Board of Directors. Wade’s significant public experience working on Charlottesville’s School Board combined with his broad knowledge of the City, and his commitment to the community impressed CAAR. CAAR believes Wade’s vocational training as a transportation planner will serve Charlottesville well as they embark on revising their Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code. While CAAR appreciated the positive positioning of Wade’s “Bringing People Together” Campaign, they were more impressed with his long history of direct personal involvement. Well known for leadership positions in the region’s vibrant non-profit sector, Wade has served on the Board of Directors of the United Way of Greater Charlottesville since 1992 and currently is the Chair. He mentors and tutors with great organizations in the community such as Computer4Kids, Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries, 100 Black Men of Central Virginia, and Zion Union Baptist Church Tutoring Program. “We are proud to stand up for Juandiego Wade for Charlottesville City Council,” said CAAR 2021 President Quinton Beckham. “We are appreciative of all who take the time and make the personal commitment necessary to run for local political office. As the REALTOR® party, we do not specifically endorse Democrat nor Republican, but rather those whose stated goals support our position that the underlying principles of private property ownership are central to the democratic process and increase the opportunity for all to have a choice of housing options suitable to their individual needs and desires. We believe contested races make for better campaigns and result in better public policy.” About CAAR: The Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® serves more than 1,300 real estate professionals and affiliate members throughout the City of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson. Widely recognized as the leading voice for real estate in Central Virginia since 1925, CAAR members bring professionalism and high ethical standards to every business transaction.

fter the isolation comes the celebration. After the shots come the sips. If it’s springtime for God’s Green Earth and the long cooped up soul, it’s the right time to rediscover Virginia wine country, its fruits and its history. Take a drive up to Afton Mountain Vineyards and sample their 2017 Cabernet Franc, a 2021 Governor’s Cup gold medalist. Head back down the mountain to Barboursville Vineyards for more winners, including the 2019 Vermentino Reserve and 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve. Continue along the Monticello Wine Trail with its more than 30 beautiful wineries, all in easy driving distance from Charlottesville. You’ll be glad you did. COVID couldn’t kill grape vines or dampen the creative enthusiasm of the remarkable vintners and hospitable vineyard owners who make Old Dominion wine enthusiasts proud.

Barboursville Vineyards The folks at Barboursville Vineyards want you to know their terroir: “Situated on the broad, rolling plateau and foothills of the Southwest Mountains in the Virginia Piedmont, running parallel with the Blue Ridge to the west, our 900 acres occupy ground of sedimentary rock of volcanic origin, and separate stratifications of sandstone and conglomerates, with sloping exposures of even greater variety. In the temperate mid-Atlantic weather of our growing region, this estate presents the viticulturist with a dynamic mosaic of growing conditions.” Visitors can see for themselves. The entire Barboursville estate is open for strolling, including the splendid lawns sur-

The Tasting Room is where the broadest range of current vintages is introduced, while Library 1821 offers a changing selection of flights of current and older vintages, with bite-sized culinary pairings designed by the vineyard’s chefs. The tasting fee of $15 includes a choice of six one-ounce pours among sixteen wines self-dispensed by automated wine stations at ideal temperature in fine crystal stemware. Barboursville’s Palladio Restaurant will offer “An Evening in Campania” on Friday, May 14 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. This four-course feast will feature traditional dishes from the Campania region of Italy, paired with Barboursville wines. The cost is $125 per person, all-inclusive. Reservations are required.

Palladio Restaurant’s next four-course culinary extravaganza is scheduled for Friday, June 11 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Executive Chef Michael Clough will prepare a Virginia Seafood Celebration Dinner. Each course will be paired with Barboursville wines.

Afton Mountain Vineyards “Grapes don’t grow in ugly places” is what they say at Afton Mountain Vineyards. Twenty-five percent of Afton Mountain’s award-winning Cab Franc is aged in concrete amphorae and 75 percent in larger “puncheon” barrels, before being blended together and bottled. The result is a medium bodied wine with a round and smooth tannin structure and

complex aromatics of red fruit. Their dry sparkling Bollicine ‘17 (“Bollicine is Italian for “tiny bubbles”) is a blend of 30 percent Pinot Noir and 70 percent Chardonnay. Aged in a cave for almost two years in bottles that are handriddled (twisted and titled) and made in the traditional French champenoise (Champagne province) method, it offers a classic combination of yeasty toast notes with bright fresh apple. Afton currently serves its wine in their glass-enclosed and heated Pavilion bar where fresh air circulates at all times. Lawn, patio and Pavilion tables are available on a first-come basis, no reservations. Self-guided tastings of five wines are available for $12. Bottle sales are available as well, but by-the-glass sales are not. Visitors are welcome to bring their own glasses. Afton also provides free plastic cups and $3, take-home AMV glasses.

Light snack fare like cheese and crackers is available for purchase or bring picnic lunches and snacks from home. Afton Mountain Vineyards is open Thursday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Masks are required any time you are not seated at your table. No parties of more than 6 and no guests under 21 at this time. Orders may be placed online for curbside pickup Thursday through Saturday from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m. Even better, Afton has four two-person cottages and one four-person guest house available for bookings. The Wine Lover’s 1 Night Retreat Package, on offer Sunday through Thursday, includes a private tour of Afton Mountain Vineyards and another fine area winery.

estate for ten years. Blenheim Farm dates back to 1730, when John Carter, Secretary of the Colony of Virginia, obtained a patent for 9,350 acres northeast of present-day Carter’s Bridge in what is now Albemarle County. It was here that John Carter maintained Carter’s Mill on the North Hardware River, and his son Edward built the first Blenheim house prior to 1799. It was at Blenheim that Thomas Jefferson and his bride, Martha, are said to have “rested and warmed themselves” after their coach stalled nearby during a snowstorm. Later they continued to Monticello on horses borrowed from Edward Carter. The property was sold in 1840 and the house burned a few years later, but Congressman, Speaker of the House, Ambassador to Great Britain, and University of Virginia rector Andrew Stevenson purchased it in 1846, building a one-story Gothic Revival style cottage. Also located on the property are an assortment of 18th and 19th century outbuildings, including a school-chapel, smokehouse, pyramidal-roofed kitchen/ laundry, and a library. The oldest—potentially the oldest structure in all of Albemarle County—is the Claim House, built in the 1730s to secure or “claim” the original land grant. Blenheim’s 2019 Painted White wine, sold in two-bottle pairs, featuring two different labels designed by Dave Matthews, is a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, and Viognier, aged for nine months in oak. It has notes of apricot, yellow pear, and jasmine. The Painted Red 2019, also sold in pairs with Matthews’ designed labels, is a blend of

Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, aged ten months in oak, and featuring notes of blackberry, cracked pepper and dried cherry. Blenheim’s outdoor spaces are open by reservation Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Each hourand-a-half reservation includes a picnic table in one of three outdoor seating areas: under a clear top tent overlooking the vineyard, on the deck underneath an umbrella, or on the lawn with a fire pit. Wines are offered by the glass, flight, and bottle. Food may be ordered in advance. Curbside wine pick-up is available Wednesday through Sunday from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. Home delivery is offered every Thursday within 20 miles of Charlottesville. Blenheim is partnering with Dr. Ho’s Humble Pie and Plenty Cville for Take and Bake Thursdays, the first and third Thursday of each month. Guests can come and enjoy a glass of wine and take home pre-ordered dinners to go. The “Captain” of Salty Bottom Blue Oysters will bring his bubble-blowing truck and his Chesapeake Bay oysters to Blenheim on May 22. Two Brothers Southwestern Grill food truck will serve one Saturday each month.

Cardinal Point Winery

FEATURE

Family owned and operated, Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery in the shadow of Afton Mountain is a dream come true for Paul and Ruth Gorman. Stationed years ago in the little city of Bad Kreuznach, Germany on the banks

of the Nahe River, the Gormans discovered a passion for Riesling wines crafted within surrounding vineyards. It was then they decided to add their own vineyard to their retirement plans. Among Cardinal Point’s current offerings are its 2019 Aubaine, a back-by-popular-demand steel fermented and aged Chardonnay. This vintage is Chablis-like, the Gormans report, with firm acid and flinty mineral notes tying together a steely, clean and elegant wine. The Cabernet Franc based 2019 Frai Rose features residual sweetness thanks to an arrested primary fermentation, in which the fermenting yeast were kept

from converting all the sugar into alcohol. This wine has a nose with mineral to Amaretto characteristics, over the top flavors of strawberry and vanilla, and a pleasing tartness near the finish to balance the sweetness. Tastings are currently unavailable due to COVID. Instead, Cardinal Point offers pre-poured tasting flights for $10. The Tasting Room is open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reservations are requested. Cardinal Point’s Sunday Music on the Deck series is in full swing each Sunday from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Independent award-winning singer/songwriter and cover artist Brian Franke will play on May 16 and June 6. The piano and violin duo Swansong will bring classical, pop, and Hollywood romance on May 23 and June 7. Charlottesville-based songwriter, recording artist, and bandleader Jason Burke will play 1960’s and 1970’s style British and American rock and roll on May 30. Back in the Commonwealth’s early days, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and George Mason all attempted and failed to make wine. By the early 1900s, spurred by the popularity of Monticello Wine Company’s Virginia Claret Wine, Charlottesville declared itself “the Capital of the Wine Belt in Virginia.” Nice try, everybody. If only you were around today, you could jump in an SUV, take a pretty drive, and load up with choice vintages from more than 300 wineries statewide. Cheers!

making their own, at first for friends and neighbors, then for the friends and neighbors of their friends and neighbors. And so on. “Ardent traditionalists” that they are, the Elliffs grow over 95 percent of their own grapes. Their primary and largest vineyard is visible upon entering their property, and while sitting out on their patios enjoying their wines. DuCard’s current wines include the 2017 Triskele, another Virginia Governor’s Cup Gold Medalist. “Triskele” is a European religious motif symbolizing the harmoniousness of three elements (in DuCard’s case, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot) from Bordeaux grapes grown at its three Madison County sites. Aromas of black and red fruits along with some sweet spice notes combine with a palate of structured tannins and a refined finish. A portion of grapes for the 2019 Signature Viognier, a new release, was barrelfermented to enhance character and add a hint of oak. The result is an aromatic dry white wine featuring wildflower notes, a honey and melon background, and medium to low acidity. DuCard welcomes visitors Monday through Thursday, 12 noon to 5:00 p.m., and from noon to 6:00 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays. Reservations are recommended. On the first Friday of each month DuCard hosts singer/songwriter Bailey Hayes, whose eclectic set list ranges from country, to classic rock, to pop/soul, to folk, to original numbers. Expect a food
