August 2014 Issue


Get happy with the August 2014 issue of Virginia Living, as music producer, business mogul and Virginia Beach native son Pharrell Wiliams talks to us about his hometown and his foundation, From One Hand to AnOTHER. We also meander through the Eastern Shore and find charming towns, lush farmland and serene oceanfront vistas—and all the characters and stories that inhabit this landscape where sea meets sky. We offer recipes for cool salads that will take center stage on your summertime table, and explore the world of tractor pulling in the Commonwealth—a sport all about power, ingenuity and raw determination. Dean King explores the mysteries (and pleasures) of binge, er, reading and New Orleans-born Chef David Guas of Arlington’s Bayou Bakery tells us about his second restaurant opening soon and the launch of his new show on the Travel Channel. Plus Melito’s World Famous Hot Dogs in Richmond celebrates 80 years, deadly (or delicious?) fungi, the opening of the new Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol and more, including our second annual special section devoted to Dental Health. Join us as we learn about the latest in cosmetic dentistry procedures and present Virginia’s Top Dentists 2014.  Pick up a copy of the August 2014 issue today!

Photographer Mark Edward Atkinson shows us some of his favorite people and places on the Eastern Shore, a place where sea and sky converge in a burst of color and where the daily rhythm of hard work is rewarded in repasts. more
