June 2009 Issue

Read this issue

June means heading for the Coast—specifically, the Eastern Shore, for a getaway that’s as rustic or as cushy as you want it to be. Take in a show at Donk’s Lil’ Ole Opry in Mathews, or head north to check out fine art at Lorton. (Yes, that Lorton.) Also inside: forward-thinking Warrenton, possibly even more forward-thinking Cyrus McCormick, SFX wiz Matt Wallin, a Crooked Road cookbook, fresh salad greens, angular elegance at Lake Anna, and more.
