Tourist spending increases


Tourism dollars continue to flow into Henrico County at an appreciable rate, according to the most recent county statistics on the matter – and a blast of history later this year could add to that total.

Travel expenditures in Henrico were $746.5 million – the fifth-highest in the state – in 2012, the most recent year for which such data is available. Henrico trailed only Fairfax, Arlington and Loudoun counties in Northern Virginia and Virginia Beach, according to data compiled by the Virginia Tourism Corporation. The VTC’s figures for 2013 won’t be available until later this fall. > Read more.

Faison School offers holistic approach to autism care


The Faison School for Autism in Henrico offers a unique opportunity for autistic children through a continuum of care methodology that focuses on providing support and resources for students throughout their lifespan for the fastest growing developmental disability in the nation.

Founded in 1999 by Alan Kirshner and Flo Guzman, The Faison School was built in response to the lack of specialized services that were available locally for his granddaughter, Brittany Faison, who had been diagnosed with the disorder. Kirshner felt it was necessary for the community to have a school available for autistic children that was based upon proven techniques and philosophies. > Read more.

Groove spot

Bar Louie’s atmosphere impresses
There are not many places I know where friends of rock, funk, and soul music can enjoy life music, dance, and have fun in a pleasant bar setting without fear of permanent ear damage.

So I was happily surprised to find all of these enticing ingredients of a great time out when I visited Bar Louie at Short Pump Town Center on a Saturday night. In the spacious bar/restaurant I found myself surrounded by the well-tuned sounds presented by The Groove Motive, a local band, and a cheerful crowd of funk lovers of all ages dancing the night away. > Read more.

Which direction is up?

Boy band documentary knows, plays to its audience
A nervous, giddy feeling lingers in the air before the start of “One Direction: This is Us.” It doesn’t come as a surprise in a theater crammed full of young women (and more than a few hapless parents).

But those nervous giggles and whispers vanish the moment the opening titles of “This is Us” begin to roll. The theater is stone silent, but only for a moment – a One Direction member darts onscreen for a scant few frames, and the theater explodes with shrieks of hysterical glee. > Read more.
