WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

The month of October brings to mind many things – apple cider and autumn, Halloween and hayrides, to name a few. Speaking of Halloween, Williamsburg has a spooky side. Ghosts from the past allegedly haunt several historical sites, including Ludwell Paradise and the Peyton Randolph House. This month, the Williamsburg Magazine speaks to some local ghost tour guides – read about some of the best legends. Then, if you’re up for it, take one of the tours and see for yourself. For some a more quintessential October activity, check out Pumpkinville in Toano. The pick-your-own pumpkin patch also offers hayrides and a corn maze. Fall is a time of festivals, and the first weekend in October is always reserved for Williamsburg’s longtime arts festival, An Occasion for the Arts. The festival hosts nearly 145 artists from across the country who will set up throughout downtown Williamsburg, as well as around 30 performers at two stages. But this year, An Occasion for the Arts has expanded to include a music mini-festival to kick the weekend off, and a culinary celebration to close the weekend out. That same weekend, you can also check out the Williamsburg Book Festival, featuring New York Times best-selling author Rita Mae Brown, as well as Jamestown Settlement’s American Indian Intertribal Powwow, a two-day celebration of song, dance and storytelling by members of American Indian tribes. With activities new and old, this October is sure to be unforgettable.

things to do

Pick your fall pumpkins at Pumpkinville By Amanda Williams Toano is home to one of greater Williamsburg’s favorite pumpkin patches — Pumpkinville, a small family farm operation. Brothers Barry and Clint Allen have run the pumpkin patch for 21 years. In addition to pumpkins, the Allens offer other gourds and winter squash for sale, fall decorations and arts and crafts. Visitors can either pick their own pumpkins or choose one from a collection of those pre-harvested. Prices vary by size. The farm offers additional free, family-fun activities including a hayride around the outside of the field, two cornfield mazes, and beanbag

and ring toss games. The mazes come in two sizes, Barry Allen said. The big one is for those seeking a challenge while the smaller is for children and their parents. Barry Allen said train rides are available every day where children can ride a kid-sized train for $1 each go-around. He said weekends often include bounce house and other inflatables. Pumpkinville opened Sept. 24 and will run through October until Halloween. Located at 7691 Richmond Road, the pumpkin patch is open Sunday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The farm asks larger groups to make reservations for picnic tables.

American Indian culture on display at Powwow By Amanda Williams Jamestown Settlement will echo with American Indian song, dance and storytelling for the first weekend of October during its American Indian Intertribal Powwow. Kevin Locke, an award-winning indigenous Northern Plains flute player, highlights the weekend with a concert Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. followed by a hoop dance performance. The dance, an athletic healing dance using 28 hoops, will include Powwow singers and select members of the audience. Admission to Locke’s concert is $10 for adults and $5 for children 6-12. Locke will also host flute workshops at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

each day. People in the workshop will learn how to build and paint a flute and play a song on it. Those in the Saturday sessions will get to perform with Locke that evening. The workshops are open to those 8 years and older. Reservations are required. Saturday’s cost is $40, which includes daytime admission to the settlement and to the evening concert. Sunday’s workshop costs $35, which also includes daytime admission to the settlement. During the day Oct. 1 and 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., visitors can experience and afternoon of song and dance from singers of three different American Indian tribes. The documentary “Rising Voices,” detailing the slow loss of the Lakota

people’s indigenous language, will be aired throughout the weekend. American Indian stories, told by Grace Ostrum of the Accohannock, will take place each day at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. A birds of prey program will run each morning, and visitors will be able to visit Jamestown Settlement’s latest exhibit, “Bartering for a Continent”. With advance registration, people can participate in a two-hour workshop in which they’ll create a woven basket like the Powhatan Indians did in the 1600’s. The workshop is an additional $20. Admission to the settlement for adults is $18, for children 6 to 12 its $8; and entry is free for those under 6. WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

things to do

2016 An Occasion for the Arts has more in store

By Heather Bridges When running a festival with a nearly 50-year legacy, sticking to the status quo would be easy. “It would’ve been a lot easier just to carry on, and not to try to grow or invite new partners and to try to create even more exciting events,” said Sally Stiles, public relations director for An Occasion for the Arts, Williamsburg’s an12

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

nual outdoor arts festival. Occasion’s leadership didn’t settle for easy. The 2016 festival is offering more than it ever has. “I think we’re all very committed to this being the very best weekend, and a great experience for everyone,” Stiles said. The 47th annual An Occasion for the Arts features 145 juried artists, 88 of them returning artists, from more than 20 states. On Oct. 1 and 2, the artists will display their work at booths along North Boundary and Duke of Gloucester Streets, and 14 artists will give demonstrations as well. Nearly 30 performers will take to the City Square and Courtyard stages. If that sounds like the Occasion for the Arts of years past, it’s because the heart of the festival hasn’t changed. There’s just a bit more included. A Friday night “Kickoff Party,” presented in partnership

with CultureFix, includes performances from three regional bands. The Dharma Initiative, Poisoned Dwarf and Rumbleseat Revival will perform beneath a 6,000-square-foot tent. “Come right after work, sit, enjoy some music, have a drink, get something to eat,” said Stuart Honenberger, Occasion’s president. A Sunday afternoon “Art of Taste” event will close the festival under that same large tent. “The hope is it becomes an annual part of the festival that focuses on some different element of taste,” Honenberger said. This year, the taste of choice will be craft beverages, with a winery, two breweries, two meaderies, two cideries and five distilleries present. Other additions to the festival include a college art show across the street, on the College of William and Mary’s Campus, and an expanded youth art element.


“Occasion for the arts is ‘always inspiring,’” Stiles said, referencing the festival’s slogan. “This gives us an opportunity … to provide more inspiration, in more venues, in more ways.” Visit aofta.org to see the full list of artists, schedule of performances and festival map. Tickets to the Kickoff Party and The Art of Taste are also available on the Occasion for the Arts website.

Prepare to be frightened at Howl-O-Scream By Steve Vaughan If it’s October in Williamsburg, that can only mean one thing — Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens. Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s annual spook show runs through the end of the month. Howl-O-Scream may come every year, but it’s never the same thing twice. The park adds new haunted houses and scare zones each year. Both of this year’s additions — a haunted house and a “terror-

tory” -— have circus themes. The new haunted house is Circo Sinistro. "No one knows when or where the tents will rise, but all who see them are drawn to find out what lies inside Circo Sinistro at Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s Howl-OScream. The park’s new haunted house is not of this world and not of this time – but beware, what you see, you soon will be," is how Busch Gardens describes the new attraction.

This year's new "Terror-tory" is "Sideshow Square." Busch Gardens promises “haunts, curiosities and plenty of scare to make you shriek” on the way to the Big Top. “Unearthed: Scarlett’s Revenge,” 2015’s new haunted house returns this year, along with “Bitten,” “Catacombs,” “Cornered,” “Deadline” and “Lumberhack.” This year’s scare areas, along with “Sideshow Square,” are “Demon Street,” “Ripper Row,”

Williamsburg Book Festival welcomes New York Times best-selling author By Heather Bridges Ever since its conception four years ago, the Williamsburg Book Festival has grown. “It’s almost like going through college. It’s like our senior year,” said founder and director Greg Lilly. “We kind of know what we can do.” This year, the festival will show what it can do. Featuring nearly 45 local and regional authors, the fourth annual Williamsburg Book Festival will fill the Stryker Building on Oct. 1 with a book fair, workshops, panels and presentations for writers and readers alike. Not to mention, New York 14

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

Times best-selling author Rita Mae Brown headlines the festival. “Rita Mae was one of those people that I read when I first started writing,” Lilly said. From her groundbreaking first novel “Rubyfruit Jungle,” published in 1973, to her latest novel “Cakewalk,” released this month, “there is such a broad range in what she writes,” Lilly said. As a juried festival, authors applied, were reviewed and accepted based on quality, first and foremost, but also on variety. From best-selling to budding authors, the festival features something for everyone. “I just want people to come out, and kind of get that literary taphouse feel,” Lilly said. “Come out

and read local and see the stories that are happening here.” For more information, visit WilliamsburgBookFestival.org

American Revolution Museum helps mark Yorktown victory By Amanda Williams This year’s Yorktown Victory Celebration will not only mark the 235th anniversary of a monumental Revolutionary War victory, but visitors will also get a sneak peek of the American Revolution Museum through permanent new galleries. Oct. 19, 1781 was a significant day for the country, and in 2016 the day will be celebrated with a ceremony and parade to mark Yorktown Day. The celebrations surround the anniversary of British General Charles Cornwallis’ official surrender to General George Washington, a significant victory that brought about the end of hostilities. General Washington, along with the help of the Marquis de Lafayette and French forces surrounded Cornwallis after he settled in at Yorktown in August. By October Lafayette had blocked Cornwallis’ escape options by land while French warships held the river.

Although the surrender came in October 1781, the Treaty of Paris, formal recognition of the United States as free and independent, wasn’t signed until 1783. The victory celebrations this year will take place Oct. 15 and 16, during which the Yorktown Victory Center will officially become the American Revolution Museum. The grand opening for the new museum will be in 2017, from March 23 to April 4. Other debuts for the weekend include “Liberty Fever,” a panoramic-style film depicting stories by a 19th century person traveling around the country during the American Revolution. Permanent galleries for the new museum will open, which will include short films and nearly 500 artifacts on display. One of those films to be shown is “The Siege of Yorktown,” depicting the events leading up to and including Cornwallis’s surrender — the reason for celebrating Yorktown Victory Days.

Immersive HExperientialHInteractive Fun Weekend Preview of the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown New Exhibition Galleries and Films October 15 & 16, 2016 • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Join us for a preview of the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown with the debut of immersive exhibition galleries, films and experiential theater. The occasion coincides with Yorktown Victory Celebration, commemorating the 235th anniversary of the 1781 Revolutionary War victory at Yorktown. Work continues on outdoor living-history areas, with a museum Grand Opening planned for Spring 2017.

Throughout the weekend military music, musket and artillery demonstrations will take place in addition to interactive re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm. Celebrations on Yorktown Day, Oct. 19, will include a parade and wreath-laying ceremony at the Monument to Alliance and Victory in Yorktown. Yorktown Victory Center admission is $9.75 for adults and $5.50 for ages 6 to 12. Tickets purchased as a combo with Jamestown Settlement are $21.25 for adults and $10.75 for ages 6 to 12. Children under age 6 are free as is parking. Yorktown Victory Celebration takes place every October to commemorate the Revolutionary War Victory on Oct. 19, 1781. Photo by Joe Fudge

Burn some calories to benefit public art By Ryan McKinnon On Oct. 23, the Triangle Arts and Culture League is holding its 10-kilometer race Run for the Arts. The race begins and ends at the Riverwalk Landing on the York Riverfront in Historic Yorktown Village and runs from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will include an all-ages chalk art competition, live music by the Smith Wade Band, and tips and demonstrations from “Plein Air” (open air) artists. Adventurous history buffs can take an off-road Segway tour of the Historic Village, and the American Revolution Museum will be open to visitors. All proceeds from the event will go toward building an art playground. Art playgrounds are designed to be places children can play that look like works of public art. Misti Cupp Spong, the Events Chairman for the league, said art

playgrounds achieve two purposes – they look good and can be a fun place to play. “They almost look like pieces of art, but they are playground equipment,” Spong said. “They are very appealing to the eye in an art sense but also functional for the children to play on.” Terry Buntrock, the league’s CEO and Municipal Liaison, said the league did not yet know where the playground would be built, but they hope to eventually sponsor construction of art playgrounds in Williamsburg, James City and York counties. The race is certified by USA Track and Field, and the registration fee for the race includes a race shirt, race number and the post-race party. Register by Sept. 30, and the price is $45. Register between Oct. 1 and Oct. 22 for $50. Registration on race day is $55. Registration for the Kid’s Fun Run is $15 and includes a race number and souvenir medal.

Williamsburg:

A history of hauntings By Heather Bridges Everyone loves a good ghost tale. Turns out, Williamsburg has quite a few. In a place known for its living history, history seems to live on through more than just reenactors. Perhaps the most haunted house in Williamsburg, the Peyton Randolph house was bought by Sir John Randolph in the early 18th century and later passed on to his son Peyton Randolph, who once served as speaker of Virginia’s House of Burgesses and president of the first Continental Congress. “There are a lot of very fantastical stories about that property out in the community,” said Leigh Jameson, creative lead for the Official Colonial Williamsburg Ghost Walk. One story involves a woman, Eve, enslaved by the Randolphs who placed a curse on the house when she was sold, but Jameson said no evidence supports that legend. “And with the Peyton Randolph House, you don’t have to rely on fairytales,” said Nicki Spiers, manager at Colonial Ghosts tours. Spiers indicated more than 30 people have supposedly lost their lives in the house, and a number of people have reported unsettling activity, including the Marquis de Lafayette during his visit in 1824. 20

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

Both Spiers and Jameson described the story of a security guard once trapped in the basement of the house. While performing a routine sweep of the house, upon checking the basement, the guard suddenly was unable to move his feet. He radioed for back-up, and only once back-up arrived and knocked on the basement door did whatever was holding him release its grip. “Honestly, I give a lot of tours. I go to a lot of locations, some that have grislier stories. But that house bothers me,” Spiers said. Jameson revealed she’s recently researched the Governor’s Palace for some new stories to be added to the Official Colonial Williamsburg Ghost Walk. During renovations to the Governor’s Palace in 1930, 158 skeletons were discovered buried on the grounds. The skeletons were carefully excavated and reinterred, Jameson said. From evidence at the time, it’s believed the skeletons date to the Revolutionary War, and Jameson said they likely died from illness in hospitals around the time of the Battle of Yorktown. Security guards have reported spotting “shadow people,” Jameson said, sightings that would make sense in the context of 158 removed and reinterred skeletons. Not all hauntings are rooted in Colonial history. It’s known that the Battle of Williamsburg during the


Civil War resulted in nearly 4,000 casualties. A church that once stood in the area that’s now Market Square served as a hospital during the war. “We have some letters of the time that the ladies of Williamsburg were very disgusted with the surgeon they put in charge,” Jameson said. “They actually called him ‘the head devil.’” Jameson described the surgeon as drunk and incompetent. Spiers recounted the surgeon as a “sadist” who performed unnecessary surgeries and amputations. Either way, the hospital’s survival rate was low. Guests staying in the Market Square Tavern next to Market Square have reported occurrences, including sights of costumed individuals roaming the area. Whatever the reason, it’s interesting to speculate. “It’s believed that these are the victims of the head devil attempting to regain their wrongfully taken limbs,” Spiers said. Another tale from the Colonial Ghosts tour, and a personal favorite of Spiers, is that of “Mad Lucy” and the Ludwell-Paradise house on Duke of Gloucester Street. It’s a story Spiers first encountered when she was young, from a book on ghosts in Williamsburg she checked out of her middle school’s library. Lucy Ludwell Paradise and her husband John Paradise lived in England for a period of time, and while there, Spiers said Lucy exhibited some “erratic” behavior. After her husband’s death, she returned to Williamsburg and to her family home at Ludwell-Paradise. “Her behavior only got stranger from there,” Spiers said, from taking multiple baths a day to the “bizarre carriage rides” Lucy would take around her backyard. Lucy was committed to the Public Hospital, where she eventually died. After the house’s restoration, a Colonial Williamsburg vice president and his wife lived there. “Several times while they were, they would hear the faucet turn on in the second story bathroom, followed by the sound of somebody splashing around in a bath,” Spiers said. But when they’d go upstairs to

check, they would find the tub empty and dry. Spiers described Mad Lucy as “rather friendly,” and similarly, it appears many of the local ghosts aren’t malicious. “For the most part, they center around what we would call ‘nuisance stories,’” Jameson said. “Lights going on and off, things being moved, footsteps.” Jameson has worked in ghost stories for nearly 10 years, and has taken ghost tours around the country. at left: The Capitol Building at Colonial Williamsburg. above: A window on the Peyton Randolph House.

“It seems to me that anywhere that someone has passed, there’s a possibility or potential of a haunting, or at least the story of a haunting,” she said. “The more historical the environment, the more stories and the stronger stories you’re going to get.” “I think that because Colonial Williamsburg does have such a long history, and also this history of restoration, of disturbance to recreate, that also has a tendency to lend itself to these hauntings,” Jameson continued. “I think one of the things that makes Williamsburg such a hotspot is because there were so many groups of people,” Spiers said. From the Powhatan Confederacy, here long before the English arrived, to the two wars fought in and around Williamsburg, she said, “That much blood-shed in one spot, on top of where people had been living for centuries and centuries, I mean, you’re just inviting it.”

Tours offer otherworldly look at Williamsburg’s history By Brandy Centolanza

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

No visit to the area would be complete -- especially during this time of year -- without walking the streets of Colonial Williamsburg at night listening to ghost tales with The Original Ghosts of Williamsburg candlelight tour. Angela Taverniti, director of sales and general manager for the company, says her mother, Maxanne, started the ghost tours back in 1989 because “she loved Colonial history and storytelling as an art form, so she decided to blend the two. Collaborating with author L.B. Taylor Jr., she adapted stories from his book The Ghosts of Williamsburg, and formatted a walking tour for tourists coming to the Williamsburg area.” Taverniti and her sister grew up in the business. “I can remember as a teenager going down and sitting on the bench in front of Casey’s Department Store, which is now the Barnes and Noble bookstore,” she recalls. “I would sit and wait while my mom would take just a few people on the ghost tour.” Today, the company operates multiple tours through the streets of Colonial Williamsburg as well as The College of William and Mary campus. The original ghost tour runs nightly year-round at 8 p.m. In addition to Taylor’s book, stories are based on local folklore and legends and the tour guides’ own experiences. A second, longer tour called Extreme Ghost Tour is offered each evening at 9:15 p.m. and again at 10:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. “This (extreme) tour includes some ghost hunting equipment,” Taverniti shares. “The stories are, of course, more embellished, more detailed and off the beaten path. It has taken over as our more popular tour for our general public.” The company does tours for larger school groups and other groups, and also has a private tour, The Ghosts of Yorktown. The most popular stop on the Williamsburg tour is the Peyton Randolph House in Colonial Williamsburg. The George Wythe House is also believed to be haunted, as well as the graveyard behind Bruton Parish Church, and several buildings at the college. Each year, 65,000 people participate in the tours, which are led by at least 35 guides during the peak


season between March and August. More locals as well as those from surrounding areas tend to join the tours during October as Halloween approaches. “On our general public tours, there are mostly moms and dads and their kids who are here on vacation,” Taverniti says. “Offering two types of tours gives parents a choice. If they have little ones, then the original tour is a good fit. If they have teenagers, then the extreme tour is a big hit with the older kids.” Taverniti’s favorite part of the job is working with the tour guides. “They sacrifice so much of their own time for our customers and me,” she says. “They wait endless hours sometimes for groups when planes are delayed or traffic is backed up. They walk around Colonial Williamsburg trying to find lost guests because they know how important customer service is and that these people have spent their hard earned money to come on our tour.” Taverniti also enjoys the interaction with the guests. “I love to see the same people return every year,” she says. “You get to know people and they become part of your family. I love hearing stories about the things that happen on the tour, and seeing pictures of crazy images that people get on their cameras.” Taverniti feels ghost tours are so popular because “it’s just the thought of the unknown and what could possibly be. People will always have a curiosity of the unknown or the other side. Why won’t this door stay shut? Why did I hear that noise? What did my camera really take a picture of? It’s just something as humans we have. We have to know if ghosts really exist. You get a few people in the dark with a good story and the imagination starts running wild.” For more information on the tours, visit theghosttour.com

living & retiring here

Moving to town? Consider these points when choosing a Realtor By Brandy Centolanza Looking to move to the area, but don’t know where to start the search for your dream home? Wondering how to choose the right Realtor for you to make it happen? First, you’ll want to “look for a Realtor that is knowledgeable about the area, and who you are comfortable with. Trusting your Realtor is critical to buying a home,” says Kara Dodd, a Realtor with Long & Foster Realtors. “You will be working closely with your Realtor for an extended period of time, so select someone who you trust is quick to respond to your concerns,” Dodd says. “Moving is one of the most stressful events of your life, so your Realtor should help alleviate some of that stress by keeping the transaction moving along and keeping you informed.” Liz Moore, president of Liz Moore and Associates Real Estate, agrees. “A good Realtor should have good listening skills, without a doubt,” Moore says. “A good Realtor should be asking questions and listening to the buyer. They should find out how a buyer lives, which rooms are important to them in the home. They should have a good understanding of what a buyer wants in a home, not just the room count, but the whys.” In addition, Moore says, a good realtor should know the market, and be able to show you properties based on your lifestyle needs. You should also research a Realtor’s negotiating skills and negotiating experience. “When it comes to negotiating a deal, there is a lot at stake,” Moore points out. Realtors should also be able to connect you with the right resources. “A good agent knows the local market, understands financing, and is familiar with real estate contractual responsibilities: home inspections and the importance of having one, homeowners’ associations, and contractors and builders, if you are contemplating building a new home,” says Frank Hughes, an associate broker with Berkshire Hathaway Town Realty. So, which Realtors should you avoid? “Individuals who make unrealistic promises, and 32

who constantly interrupt you when you are speaking,” Hughes suggests. “Interview at least three people until you find the right one.” Moore also recommends adding your name to an automatic email listing that will send you details on new homes for sale along with pictures. “This could be a huge help if you aren’t familiar with the area before you even get here,” she says. Once you arrive, driving through different neighborhoods before you begin your house search can help you pinpoint what it is you’re looking for in a home. “What is important to you?” Hughes suggests asking yourself. “Do you want a subdivision with amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, or walking trails? Are you looking for more land, or do you want to be close to town, in close proximity to daily needs like grocery stores, doctors’ offices, or the library?” As you go through the process of finding the right Realtor, communication will be key. “Talk with a realtor,” Dodd says. “Before arriving to look at homes, discuss what your budget is and your expectations for a new home. You may be moving into a very different housing market, and your realtor can let you know what to expect and help you fine tune your wish list to fit your budget. A realtor can also refer you to websites to help you learn more about the schools in the area, athletics, and recreation. Based on those desires, your agent can help you find just the right neighborhood.”

The Miller-Rowe Consort will perform an hourlong set of folk tunes in Colonial Williamsburg on Oct. 8. Miller-Rowe Consort, consisting of Michael Miller on classical guitar and David Rowe on hammer dulcimer, will play Appalachian songs from the style’s early days to the present arranged for their instruments. The hammer dulcimer is a stringed and percussion instrument popular in the Colonial Era. “It’s very interesting arrangements of familiar tunes,” Mary Cottrill, manager of operations, said of the event.


Life Happens Here! The duo formed in 1991 and has been featured in events such as the Piccolo Spoleto festival in South Carolina and Christmas at the Biltmore Estate. Miller-Rowe Consort is a common fixture at Colonial Williamsburg during the holidays as well, Cottrill added. Admission to the performance is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6 to 12. Attendees are required to pay for museum admission as well. The performance starts at 4:30 p.m. The performance will be held at 326 West Francis St., Williamsburg. Call 757-220-7984 for more information.

arts & entertainment

‘Rigoletto’ shares a timeless love story By Ryan McKinnon The Opera in Williamsburg will perform the Italian tragedy, Rigoletto, on Oct. 21 and 23 at the Kimball Theater. Opera in Williamsburg Founder and artistic director Naama Zahavi-Ely said audiences should look forward to top-notch singing and minimalist stage design from this season’s production. “We get amazingly good singers. Our focus is on the singers and actors. You will not get big lavish set,” Zahavi-Ely said. “We focus on the actual drama and the interactions between the characters.” Rigoletto is a tragedy that tells the story of a court jester’s daughter falling in love with a womanizing duke. “It is pretty much a timeless story. The story could work anywhere at any time,” Zahavi-Ely said. This will be Opera in Williamsburg’s ninth production. The company puts on fall and spring performances each year. On Oct. 18, fans of Rigoletto can meet the cast and creative team at the Williamsburg Art Gallery. The event is free and open to the public. Clyde Berryman, the gallery’s co-owner, said the opera’s singers will perform arias from other operas to give concert goers a taste of what to expect in Rigoletto. The gallery has hosted other meet-the-

cast events, and Berryman said the intimacy of hearing opera performed in a relatively small space is a unique treat for opera fans. “One singer walked through the audience, even sitting in one man’s lap while she sang,” Berryman said. “Most places, you are lucky if you get taken back stage to talk to the opera singers after a performance, but here you have the chance to chat with the singers face to face.” Zahavi-Ely will deliver a short talk at the gallery event, and refreshments will be served.

In fact, Second Sundays, directed by local resident and avid arts supporter Shirley Vermillion, only takes a pause for two months out of the year, in January and February. The start of fall is a perfect time to check out the arts festival, as nature paints the leaves of trees in and around the downtown area. Presented by local nonprofit CultureFix, the monthly festival usually features between 70 and 80 artists and artisans, many of them local. Photography, jewelry, glass, painting, pottery, you name it, there’s something for everyone to browse. Live performances are spread among four stages. Quirks of Art Main Stage 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. – On the Verge (formerly Blues on Fire) 1:35-2:10 p.m. – Nelson Academy of Irish Dance 2:15-5 p.m. – Blind and Dirty Blue Talon Stage 11 a.m.-1:45 p.m. – Absolute Acoustic 2:30-5 p.m. – Scott Varney Master Craftsmen Stage 11 a.m.-1:45 p.m. – Phil n The Void 2:15-5 p.m. – Narissa Bond Trio (with Mills and Phaneuf) Brown Hall Courtyard Entrance 11 a.m.-1:45 p.m. – Mike Rodgers (from Nashville, Tenn.) 2-5 p.m. – Tammy Gardner For more information, visit 2ndsundayswilliamsburg.com.

Craft 31: Easy going, family friendly By Brandy Centolanza Burgers, beer, and fun for all ages. That’s what the owners of Craft 31 had in mind when they opened the new casual dining restaurant in May. The idea has been in the works for years, and the owners tossed around concepts and looked at a few spaces before deciding on occupying the building that was once home to former restaurants Backfin and The Cove. “We wanted to offer diverse fare that we are passionate about in a casual setting,” says Jessica Smith, director of sales and marketing for Craft 31 as well as Opus 9 Steakhouse in New Town and Schlesinger’s Steakhouse in Newport News. “There are plenty of fine dining options in town, but we wanted something that was family-friendly, 60

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

a place that not only catered to the young bar crowd but also to families.” Co-owner Steve Lewis, who also owns Opus 9 and Bottoms Up Pizza in Richmond, has been pleased with Craft 31’s success so far. “The community's response has seemed overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to see both locals and tourists alike finding their way to us,” Lewis says. “We are most excited to bring something nostalgic, yet unique and casual to Williamsburg.” Craft 31’s signature menu items include gourmet burgers, pizza, and seafood. Lewis also added a thin-crusted version of his Bottoms Up Pizza to the menu. There are 17 different specialty pizzas available as well as a build-your-own option. There is also a gluten-free

crust as well as gluten-free burger buns. The burgers are prepared in-house using a specific searing method on a cast-iron skillet. Lewis creates his burgers this way based, in part, in memory of the way he used to get burgers at a restaurant in southwest Virginia years ago. Ten specialty burgers are on the menu, including the Carolina Burger, topped with barbeque, creamy slaw, cheddar, and mustard; the Virginia Burger, a house patty topped with a crab cake, gouda, smoked tomato tartar, and vinegar slaw; and the California burger, a turkey burger with cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, and avocado. “Plus, infinite possibilities with the build a burger, because you can create your own,” Smith says. The raw bar has also been a draw for the restaurant.


“Oysters are huge right now,” Smith says. “I love raw oysters, and our oysters are super fresh and Virginia oysters only. Our peel and eat shrimp is really popular as well. We wanted a restaurant where it would be good to get dirty.” Craft 31 has expanded its menu since opening, adding a crab cake sandwich, white chicken chili, more burger options, and snow crab legs. Then, there’s the beer. The restaurant has more than 30 craft beers on tap and at least that many in a bottle, and Smith says they have repeat customers who like to come again and again to sample different beers. You can also fill up growlers to go. Those who are feeling more adventurous when it comes to their adult beverages might want to try the boozie shaketails, which are similar to milkshakes and come in a variety of flavors. Employees at Craft 31 spent several months redesigning the building before it opened. The restaurant is decked out in maritime décor and a room has been added in the center of the building, which they’ve dubbed “the pearl.” The room can be reserved for private functions. The patio is popular. There is a fireplace and the ability to heat the patio so it can stay open year-round. Craft 31 recently started a Happy Hour and is looking to possibly bring in live music. “We are constantly making changes and improving every day,” Smith says. “Perfection is the goal, and we are always working toward it.”

Want to prepare your burgers at home just like they do at Craft 31? Here’s how, according to Jessica Smith, director of sales and marketing for the restaurant: Use a 7 oz. patty of ground beef, not lean. Make ¾-1 inch thick patty, season both sides liberally with salt & pepper. Heat cast iron skillet to medium heat. When skillet is hot, sear patty on one side until brown caramelization forms uniformly, roughly two to three minutes. Flip patty and sear the same on the other side

until juice just begins to rise out of the top of the patty, roughly three minutes. Do not smash the patty. The juices rising to the top is a sign that the temperature internally is meeting medium rare to medium. You can also use an instant read thermometer to more accurately check the temperature. When the patty reaches 130-135 degrees, remove from heat. The internal temperature will continue to rise when the meat is rested. Rest for two to three minutes, then enjoy.

Lokally grown goodness By Adrienne Mayfield A healthful, local experience is what Williamsburg’s Lokal is all about. The restaurant, near Merchants Square at the heart of Colonial Williamsburg, serves up Italian-style street eats inspired by owner Eric Christenson’s time in Italy. Many of Lokal’s products are sourced from Virginia farmers, including Toano’s KelRae Farms and Blenheim Organic Gardens in Colonial Beach. “This is a healthful place in downtown Williamsburg. When 62

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE / OCTOBER 2016

someone asks where (an ingredient) came from, I know,” Christenson said. Indulge in a fresh and fruity gelato made from the ripest raspberries, or take a bite of an avocado and hummus sandwich served on handmade sourdough bread. “It tastes really, really good,” Christenson said. Christenson, who spent time learning to cook in Jesi and Parma, Italy, transforms fresh fruits and greens into savory and sweet eats that are low on sugar and fat. Christenson takes a minimalist approach to food. Soups filled with

fennel, carrots, celery and onions are salted and flavored with seaweed and mushrooms. He prefers to let nature’s ingredients speak for themselves; a bite of melon gelato tastes like it came straight off the vine. Lokal’s menu follows the seasons. This fall customers can expect a healthy dose of pumpkin gelato and salads. Squash and root vegetables will also make an appearance in Lokal’s soups. The menu changes often – sometimes daily – and is based on Photos by Adrienne Mayfield


the fresh foods available from farmers. A beloved soup, smoothie or gelato may be available one day and gone the next. But that’s half the fun. The menu does offer some constants. Customers can order a scoop of the chocolate, sweet cream or raspberry-hibiscus gelatos every day, or sip on a piping-hot cup of locally roasted coffee. The menu is vegan-based, although there are sandwiches topped with cheese or hand-sliced prosciutto for the carnivores. Although Lokal is full of healthy options, Christenson does not consider it a health-food restaurant. His goal is “to be conscientious about our food and where it comes from, and to know that when people are making choices we can help them.” Christenson has a variety of food sensitives and knows that it can be hard for families to go out to eat at a place that caters to their specific needs. Lokal can fill that gap because everything is handmade with handpicked products. “We want for people to be able to say I know when I come here somebody else has done the research to make sure the product is healthy, it’s organic, it’s local – because I believe in that,” Christenson said.
