Jerry Bailey began homebrewing with friends in 1989, hopeful that the craft would bring fulfillment that his 9-to-5 failed to provide. Fulfillment it brought, along with numerous batches of tasty brew. Bailey couldn’t keep his inventions to himself; he quickly decided to open his own brewhouse as well as distribute his goods to other local establishments.

Today, Bailey proudly stands at the helm of both Old Dominion Brewhouse and Old Dominion Brewing Company. In the pub, chefs add variety to liquid meals with food such as burgers, crab cakes, and thin-crust pizzas while 30 flat-screen televisions keep patrons entertained with sports. The chefs also exhibit flair for Asian cuisine, slicing and rolling sushi and offering create-your-own mongolian stir-fries. At the bar, eight handles remain perpetually reserved for Old Dominion's craft beers, such as the award-winning Baltic porter and the Oak Barrel stout, which is loaded with flavors of vanilla and the color brown.

Beyond the striped awning of Fern Street Gourmet lays a deli case, shelves of bottles, and a host of cardboard boxes and wooden crates. The culinary connoisseurs behind the counter want you to know where their goods come from, from fine Spanish wines at budget prices or hard-to-find European candies. Shoppers can browse hundreds of cheeses, meats, beers, and party snacks on their own or turn to staff, who can assemble towering custom gift baskets and point them toward the perfect hostess gift to say "Welcome to your new home" or "Sorry I ate that entire cheese platter last time."

Rick’s Wine and Gourmet is a locally owned neighborhood shop stocked with fine cheeses, charcuterie, olive oils, pastas, and more. Though this Groupon can only be used toward gourmet foods, shoppers can still grab Zen Wine cookies ($7.99), an all-natural snack specially crafted to pair with certain wines. The Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine blueberry jam ($6.99) allows breakfast eaters to brighten boring pieces of wheat toast without having to burn the Treaty of Versailles into them. Rick’s also stocks more than 50 artisanal cheeses, such as sharp Maytag Blue cheese ($14.99), an ideal complement for snacking on porchetta Italian herb-roasted pork loin ($19.99 per pound).

There are drinking events, and there are music events. But for ticket-holders to On Tap Magazine's Can Jam Beer & Music Festival, there's no need to choose between the two. Festgoers can sip canned suds from breweries such as Flying Dog, Oskar Blues, Starr Hill, and Yuengling, as they boogie to the Latin-infused rock of Lloyd Dobler Effect, sway to reggae sounds, or channel their inner Grateful Dead as they jam to the sounds of Justin Trawick Group. There will also be games to play and food trucks to sample from the likes of Sol Mexican Grill, Willie's Po' Boy, and Top Dog. A portion of the event's proceeds benefits Southeast Tennis & Learning Center.

It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.

Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
