December 2013 Issue

The December 2013 issue of Virginia Living honors the Commonwealth’s creativity and entrepreneurial spirit with our second annual Made in Virginia Awards. In this issue, we present 15 of our favorite Virginia-produced items in the categories of food, home, music, style and sport, and celebrate the people behind them. Our cover story invites you to cozy up with our five favorite recipes for delicious drinking chocolate. Groove out with our feature story, which takes us to Norfolk—a vital epicenter of pop, rock and soul in the 1960s. Music by performers, including Ida Sands, Wilson Williams, Lenis Guess and others was raucous and raw, bold and brazen, and its primitive beats and fiery performances ignited generations of musicians. In our Holiday Gift Guide, we highlight stylish whatnots to inspire your morning routine all year. Our Hospitals & Health Care special bound-in supplement investigates and celebrates trends in technology and patient care at Virginia’s top medical facilities. All that, plus a reflection on the woman behind Evergreen Enterprises, a preview of the VMFA’s “Hollywood Costume” exhibit, notes on strange behavior from barred owls, glamorous holiday party additions to your wardrobe and more.
