Harrisonburg International CommUNITY Celebration begins next week!

From an outsider’s perspective, Harrisonburg may not seem to be the most diverse place in the world.   But after living here, you soon realize the breadth of cultural diversity that shapes the lives of Harrisonburg residents.   This diversity is reflected everywhere from restaurants to churches to art, and makes Harrisonburg what it is today.

Beginning Monday, September 22nd running through Sunday October 5th Harrisonburg will celebrate its international community through a series of events kicking off with JMU International Week, featuring the Explore More Museum’s: One World Exhibit and closing the Latino Film Festival at Court Square Theater.

 

You can see a full list of events here.

Three Notch’d Brewery (241 East Market Street) will have a Welcome Back celebration this Saturday, August 30th!   The celebration will feature several food trucks and bands, and they’re even offering Buy 1, Get 1 free on your first pint for all Urban Exchange residents!   Sounds like a friendly neighbor to me.

So if you’re in the neighborhood on this upcoming beautiful Saturday afternoon and feel like dancing, eating, or drinking, this is probably a good place to visit!

Ice House apartment move-ins today!

Perhaps you’ve seen the active construction zone on Liberty Street, across from the Farmer’s Market.   The Ice House project is well underway and we have our first residential tenants moving in today!

There are 34 apartments in total consisting of studios and one bedroom units.   The Ice House is currently 100% leased, but make sure to check in with Matchbox if you are interested in being a member of this cool community next year!

Check out the photos below which show these one of a kind units in all their glory.

Ice House Exterior

The residential sections (top 2 floors) are complete, but there is still a lot going on in the commercial spaces!

From the outside, it looks solid, up close it looks like a screen step back a few feet and you can’t even see the screen!

FundFest at Turner Pavilion feat. Little Walter and the Convictions

Turner Pavilion

Did you remember that Fund Fest, a fundraiser for the SPCA, runs every other Wednesday throughout the summer?   Oh, you forgot?   Well, allow me to retort.

What does Fund Fest look like?   It looks like a collection of people having fun”d” and dancing to live music!

Does it look like a party?  Why yes, it does.  The event usually attracts hundreds of visitors to Turner Pavilion.

Then why haven’t you treated FundFest like the amazing, free party that it is?  I…I…am totally out of excuses.

BAM!

Foolproof logic here.   Go to Turner Pavilion this Wednesday, July 23rd from 6:00pm to 8:30pm and all enjoy all things Harrisonburg.

FoodBarFood
(126 West Bruce Street) has officially opened for business! The menu, which was released here just a few months ago, has finally come to fruition with a dynamic cooking style that captures the flavors and techniques of various cultures from around the world and a bar menu that is second to none in the city of Harrisonburg. Where else can you get seared scallops with avacado and pico de gallo and a jalapeno margarita while your date gets a bowl of ramen in duck broth with a side of kimchi?!? This isn’t fusion, this is global representation right here in the Shenandoah Valley.

In short, do not wait, do not pass GO, proceed directly to FoodBarFood as soon as you can. There is nothing else like it in town.
