Crozet Community Calendar

There’s lots happening in Crozet, from concerts to vineyard happenings to events at Tabor Church to dome-putting-up at Crozet Park to Crozet Community Association and Crozet Community Advisory Council meetings. Years ago (I can’t even find a link) on RealCrozetVA I tried to assemble a Crozet community calendar; I’m trying again.

May I present – the Crozet Community Calendar. I’m going to figure out a way to embed it over there in the sidebar, but for now, I’ll ask you to notice it, remember it, and email me (and your friends) if you have an event you want readers of RealCrozetVA to know about.

To recap:

Crozet Community Calendar is here

– email me if you’d like to publicize an event

– I’m mentioning it on Twitter and Facebook and Google Plus.

– For now, I’m not sure yet how I’m going to deal with announcements going forward, whether I’ll keep doing separate posts for events, a one-line post + addition to the Crozet calendar or just add it to the calendar …

– I think it’d be cool to post when neighborhood HOA meetings are …

“A Place to Breathe” in Ivy

Guest post by the kind folks at A Place to Breathe Meditation Studio in Ivy. It’s not Crozet, but a lot of us pass by it every day. So to satisfy any curiosity you might have had ….

4405 Ivy Commons has housed many a thing, including a horseback riding tack shop and a gift shop. These days, instead of bridles or toys, you’ll find meditation cushions and yoga classes at A Place to Breathe Meditation Studio, or Breathe for short.

Externally, the building gives no hint of the spaciousness and calming atmosphere inside. Soft colors and natural light invite you to take a deep breath and maybe enjoy a cup of complimentary tea. A long white and green curtain separates the main studio and lobby space. While a small detail, having a soft curtain instead of a hard wall seems appropriate to a studio in which the separation of mind and body is lessened.

Coffee Shop in Crozet!

It’s about time. From the press release:

“Beights Corporation proudly announces the addition of Trailside Coffee to the Village Center at Old Trail in Crozet, Virginia. Albemarle native and Crozet-area resident Marcia McGee, proprietor, will be serving fresh brewed coffee and espresso beverages to passersby and residents of Old Trail Village, beginning in January 2009 once construction is complete on the new Village Center.

“I am so excited about this opportunity,” stated McGee at the lease signing, “I have been working hard for months to ensure that I have what I need to do this right. Now we’re ready to go!” McGee began creating her new shop months ago, developing her logo, website, and planned list of offerings in anticipation of her lease-signing this past Friday. She also has secured custom roasting agreements with Williamsburg Coffee & Tea Co. and other, boutique roasters. Of these relationships, McGee said, “I want to provide beans and espresso roasts that are special to our area. As the palate of my customers develops, I can change our custom roasts to best suit their tastes.”

Even though construction on the Old Trail Village Center is a full four weeks ahead of schedule, McGee doesn’t want to keep Crozet-area residents waiting any longer for their espresso fix. Opening in early August, possibly sooner, Trailside Coffee will be operating an espresso and coffee cart in the Old Trail Golf Clubhouse.”
