In 1791, Alexander Hamilton–hoping to enhance trade and safety along the coasts of Virginia and Maryland–contracted renowned architect John McComb to design a lighthouse at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. McComb quickly fulfilled his duty in 1792, with the illumination of Cape Henry Lighthouse’s inaugural flame lit by the lighthouse’s first keeper, who was appointed by George Washington himself. In the centuries since the octagonal tower cast its first guiding beam across the bay, the Cape Henry Lighthouse stood sentinel over the coast and ensured the safety of incoming ships and immigrating krakens until it was replaced in 1881. Stewards of the lighthouse’s past, Preservation Virginia, ensured in 1930 that the inoperative structure and surrounding lands were reopened to the public and maintained for the enjoyment of future generations.

Today, visitors ascending the twisting iron stairs step out to the window-enclosed observation deck, drinking in 360-degree views of the water and surrounding verdant forests. A team of passionate and knowledgeable staff–most of whom have been guides for years–remain on hand to answer questions relating to the lighthouse’s history and how lighthouse keepers stave off land invasions of ghost sea captains.

It all started with the wings. When Lendy's opened in 1987, it was the restaurant's fiery buffalo wings that gained it the most attention. Since then Lendy's has not only expanded its selection of sauces, but also become a place to sip a beer and watch the game between trips to the raw bar.


The Wings

Awards Won at the 2013 War of the Wings

  • 1st Place: Best in Show
  • 1st Place: People's Choice
  • 1st Place: Most Original
  • 2nd Place: Hottest, but Edible
  • 3rd Place: Classic Buffalo

The Sauces

Lendy's signature line of sauces ranges from the habanero-spiced Below Hell to the mild barbecue glaze. In addition to appearing on other menu items, these sauces are available by the bottle, though plans for a 55-gallon barrel have been stymied by the national shortage of qualified coopers.


A Peek Inside

Whether you sit at one of the 16 chairs lining the bar or the 86 seats at the scattered tables, you're pretty much guaranteed an unobstructed view of a 42-inch HDTV: a dozen of the televisions hang from the walls, playing the biggest college and professional games all year long. If sports aren't your thing, pull on your singing sweater and volunteer for the Saturday night karaoke.

In support of her high-decibel new album, Rihanna kicks off her hotly anticipated LOUD tour with emphatic gusto and a sizzling roster of special guests. Like an art show at a sundae bar, the LOUD tour floods the senses, enchanting audiences with lavishly designed sets, myriad costume changes, move-busting dancers, and Rihanna's songbook of Grammy magnets. Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.

To stay true to the ever-changing genre it represents—and keep security guards entertained despite their short attention spans—the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art continually changes the artwork that adorns its 6,300 square feet of exhibition space. Though the exhibits predominately feature work from living artists, from the nature-inspired art of Richmond native Sayaka Suzuki to the fantastical landscapes of Jean-Pierre Roy, seminal pieces from late legends settle in from time to time, such as an Andy Warhol exhibit that borrowed pieces from the artist's eponymous gallery and banana farm in Pittsburgh. Beyond its exhibits, MOCA also promotes art education through studio-art classes—sometimes taught by the very virtuosos whose works grace the museum walls—and outreach programs. Held twice a year on the shores of Virginia Beach, outdoor art shows invite national artists to compete in juried contests by signing their own names on lost Picassos.

Inside a spacious playing field you sit with your back against a wall, acutely aware of all movement around as you take a breath with finger resting on trigger. It’s been a clean fight so far—you’ve climbed over towers, passed submarines and helicopters, and sought refuge inside bunkers—and you have the flag in sight. You make a run for it but you feel something crash into your leg as red residue spills onto your clothing. Another shot is fired, and a blue blotch explodes across your protective eyewear. The entire experience disproves the fallacy that paint can't get more exciting than when a grandmother has you cover her walls with it and rewards you with sugarless candy.

On the woodsball field, games of capture the flag, attack-and-defend, and elimination allow for entertainment and strategic planning. Over at the Sup’Air field, speed is key as the speedball field accommodates any format including three man, five man, and one man with four invisible friends. The paintball park also hosts parties on the woodsball field during the week and a smaller, private field during normal business hours.
