Sports bar's only gimmick is good food
Food Review  April 12, 2013, by Virginia B. Wood
"...When I was trying to come up with the best way to describe successful sports bars, the recurring idea was the admonition in an old number from the Fifties musical Gypsy. In the song, seasoned strippers map out the road to success for the young Gypsy Rose Lee, singing, "You gotta get a gimmick, if you wanna get ahead!"

Over the past 20 years, the ways in which people use libraries have evolved, and the best of the libraries built in this era reflect those changes: the incorporation of technology, the increase in programs that bring people together, the exchange of information..."

Rumors! Babies! SouthBites!
Food Column  February 21, 2014, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Consider this: If a restaurant server delivered an iPad-like device to your table with the final bill that allowed you to immediately share feedback about the restaurant experience, would you use it?
