Whew... what a party! Vices That Made Virginia was by all accounts a wild success and helluva good time. The bourbon was flowing, the band was rocking, and the food was delicious. The Neighborhood Restaurant Group chefs really outdid themselves and put out a feast of local food fit for kings. And with over 500 people in attendance, a feast it certainly was!
The live auction was a hit and raised over $13,000 for Arcadia, which will go a long way to getting our farm up and sprouting by springtime. The lucky auction winners bagged a farm supper at Arcadia, a 4-star dinner with Post food critic Tom Seitsema, dinner for 12 by Chef Tony Chittum in Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House, cooking classes with Chef Will Artley... and even a live heritage breed pig!
