Athlete of the Week – March 27: Walter Williams

Henrico High School, boys' basketball

Walter Williams cried tears of joy after Henrico won the 5A boys basketball state championship. The 6-foot-4 senior guard had come a long way since failing off of the team as a freshman.

“It was a very humbling experience that not everybody could say they have, to be state champs,” said Williams.

Williams scored 37 points against Bird in the region’s semi-finals, including the shot that sent the game into overtime at the buzzer. That shot incited wild celebration, and the crowd spilled onto the court. Henrico went on to win in double-overtime. > Read more.

Athlete of the Week – March 20: Annemarie Beran


Annemarie Beran was tired of Tucker basketball not being taken seriously.

“My freshman and sophomore year people just didn’t respect us,” Beran said. “They thought they could just come in and walk all over us.”
This year, however, after going 20-4 and finishing eighth in the Times-Dispatch rankings, opponents are viewing the Tucker Tigers in a different light.

Much of the team’s success can be attributed to Beran, who said that she and her teammates began preparing for the season last spring by returning to fundamentals. > Read more.

The victory came moments after Williams’ teammate was carried off the mat with a concussion, and Williams dedicated his victory to his teammate. > Read more.

‘East-west’ fundraisers for Isaac to include ice show, yard sale

Friends and family of one-year-old Isaac Corbett ("New Life for Joy Boy," 3/15/12 Citizen) will hold a fundraising blitz May 5 in Henrico that will include a yard sale at Rocketts Landing followed by an ice show at SkateNation Plus in Short Pump.

The yard sale at Rocketts Landing will take place from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. May 5 in the Cedar Works parking lot at the corner of Route 5 & Orleans Street.

Breaking the chain

Chuy’s proves it’s possible to have many locations but retain unique feel

If you’ve driven through Short Pump in the past six months, there’s not a chance you’ve missed Chuy’s, the big and bold Tex-Mex restaurant in West Broad Village. From the outside, the brightly painted 8,000 square foot building gives a foretaste of what’s inside: eclectic decor, a fun menu, and from my experience, a lot of noise. The restaurant is a chain of 40 in the nation, but it’s the first of its kind in Virginia.

We were fortunate to arrive at 6 p.m. on a Wednesday, the perfect time for happy hour. From 4-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, there are drink specials, but what’s really special is the free nacho bar served out of a giant car hood. > 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.
