Roly Poly's staff crafts a menu of nutritious sandwiches, soups, and salads from fresh vegetables and other healthy ingredients. Inside a Santa Fe chicken sandwich ($6.25 whole; $3.95 half), sleepy sliced chicken breast snuggles under a blanket of melted jalapeno jack cheese, only to be rudely roused by a splash of salsa. Alternately, a fashion-forward spa salad ($5.95) shows off a multi-colored frock of plum tomatoes, avocado, and alfalfa, and the brown derby Cobb ($6.95) crumbles bleu cheese and bacon over mixed greens. For liquid sustenance, cauldrons of Westport seafood bisque ($3.95/cup; $4.95/bowl) and roasted garlic tomato soup ($2.95/cup, $3.95/bowl) boil and toil to practice for upcoming Macbeth prop auditions
The White House of the Confederacy constituted the social, political, and military headquarters of Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis during the Civil War. Later named a National Historic Landmark, the building still stands today. Daily guided tours lead guests through the grand 19th-century structure, which houses more than half its original wartime furnishings.
The White House is only steps away from The Museum of the Confederacy's Richmond location, where a core exhibit chronicles the Confederacy from its beginnings to General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. Opened 25 years after that fateful event, the nonprofit museum displays artifacts from a collection of more than 15,000 items. They include Stonewall Jackson's sword, a letter from Pope Pius IX, and all the pennies Jefferson Davis etched his face onto in his spare time.
Meanwhile, another 400 artifacts adorn the permanent exhibit at the museum's Appomattox location. Here, a dozen audiovisual stations, parole lists, and the uniform coat worn by Lee illustrate the event that brought the Civil War to a close.
With more than 30 years of combined shutter experience, Barry, Jennifer, and their son Scott catch moments in time in their palatial 5,000-square-foot studio. Rather than gluing family faces over last year's collection of received holiday cards, demand clan members to unite for a seasonal portrait session. Clients can round up as many actual or professed relatives as they wish for the shoot, which lasts as long as is necessary to capture postage-worthy smiles. Kinsfolk may personalize their holiday-card image with a heartwarming greeting or a written proclamation of social-security numbers. Alternatively, grinning subjects can deck halls with an up-to-date 16"x20" personal or family portrait.
After three decades of holistic-therapy research, Brenda “Bebe” Ball founded Rejuvenation Station to share her belief in a natural path to wellness. The center’s noninvasive treatments range from infrared body wraps, which fight cellulite and burn calories while also improving skin, to ion detox footbaths, which draw out toxins and boost energy. Bebe has also brought Japanese technologies to Rejuvenation Station in the form of an electro reflex energizer, which stimulates acupressure points, and an e-power machine, whose high-frequency energy works to accelerate healing and aid mental focus.
