We kick off the new year with a little urban edge. The January/February 2008 issue of Virginia Living has feature stories on the often provocative theater scene in Arlington (the cover story) along with downtown Norfolk's "miracle" turnaround. We take a fun look at a Motley's antique auction in Richmond, profile gospel singer Maggie Ingram and tour two great houses--a beach home in Croatan and a classic Tudor mansion in Roanoke (once the home of southwest Virginia's garden club). Our fashion feature is smashing--literally. Winter comfort food, Italian dining, arts, books: It's all in the latest issue of Virginia Living.
