In the April issue of Virginia Living, we travel to Petersburg where we meet a group of city leaders, entrepreneurs and artists whose optimism for the future of their city is infectious. An exciting new arts and dining scene has emerged there in recent years, along with a spate of development throughout the cobblestoned streets of Old Towne where shining contemporary lofts and storefronts neighbor some of our state’s most historic sites. We offer a menu for a fresh spring brunch featuring yogurt-marinated leg of lamb and more of the season’s vibrant produce. We introduce you to Chris Fultz and Alex Graf, the duo behind one of Richmond’s favorite barbecue joints ZZQ, and Gareth and Maggie Moore, owners of Virginia Distillery Co. in Nelson County. In our annual special flipbook issue, Health & Wellness, we look into the benefits of goat yoga and superfood spirulina algae, and offer a look at why Harrisonburg has become a locus for forward thinking cyclists.
