Letter from the Publisher
Spring has always been our favorite time in the Washington area for us. Light breezes, outdoor dining, the light green leaves as we drive down the parkway and the blossoms in the yards and the parks in our neighborhoods. Gives me that brand new feeling and energizes me to do even more.
And I guess you can call this the spring of our new town. The landscape is changing so fast, we are struggling to keep up.
Even today as we go to print, we understand there’s a new massive project planned for Tysons by the Meridian Group. “The Boro” is being planned on the 18 acre site we knew as the four building SAIC campus. The plans are sensational, and will include eight new buildings in addition to the three already there. We’re looking at up to 2,300 residential units, 2 million square feet of office and 266,000 feet of retail and entertainment—wow. Stay tuned for more details in issues to come.
And speaking of entertainment, and dining—our list of choices keep growing—The new Eddie V’s offering live jazz seven days a week (and great seafood as well) The Hyatt at Tysons 1 with their Barrel & Bushel (with craft beers and 30 bourbons), Levant (Mediterranean), Aldeerah (Saudi Cuisine) The new Clarity in Vienna (American Bistro), Zamarod (Afghan) in Great Falls…the list goes on and on…
This is our annual “Home-Show” edition and we hope you will consider what we feel are some of the area’s best options when you’re looking to reconfigure your spaces. We are so lucky to have such terrific choices.
And to add to our good fortune, we included profiles of area Realtors who go the extra mile to see to it that your Real Estate buying and selling experience is exceptional. Again, lucky us.
Our team has put together quite a publication with some super articles about biking in our area, taking a Journey through Hallowed Ground, the exciting upcoming season at Wolf Trap and the miraculous new alternatives to surgery with the doctors at Stem Cell Arts. Body–Heal Thyself! Amazing stuff.
Looking for the perfect match? Talk to Match Maker extraordinaire Naiomi Kooritzky at “Options.” Matchmaking is not dating—a great read for those tired of the zillion dating sites.
“Hypnotherapy” is a natural approach to successful living and Rick Mundy has the story about NOVA Hypnosis & Wellness. So many approaches to wellness—a great read.
Implants and periodontology today are light years ahead of what was available just a few years ago. Just ask doctors Passero & Feeney—State of the art.
Look for Hubie Cram’s article of courage and hope about Gina Renfro-Smith, Touching Heart on learning to give by Grant Eppling, The Mclean Day Celebration (100 years!), Kamp Koda teaching equestrian excellence, and our own Linda Barrett on wine stemware.
We are all thrilled to have so many new advertisers and supporters for our publications, and keeping our readers and neighbors up-to-date on our new city is a labor of love. Thanks! See you in July. Cheers…
