Found Treasure

Last week I shared a picture of the windmill at Colonial Williamsburg. That same day, this book resurfaced in my house. It’s the 1955 official guidebook of Colonial Williamsburg. It came with a large color map and thorough description of the town and each building’s history.

Whoever used it wrote his name on the cover but took remarkably good care of the book, making it a fun piece to just flip through.

It feels like a real treasure.

Food For Thought

Williamsburg, Virginia is home to a great little restaurant called Food For Thought.

In addition to an interesting variety of delicious dishes on the menu, the atmosphere here is fantastic. It feels a bit upscale without seeming snooty. More importantly, the place is designed to get you thinking and talking.

Quotes on the wall set a positive and thoughtful tone. Conversation cards on the tables provide fun quotes and thought provoking questions to help get the conversation started. They want you to put down your phone and actually talk to your dining companions.

I was there with someone I knew well but still learned some things about him thanks to conversation starters that I wouldn’t have come up with on my own.

In case you’re wondering. I had no trouble finding vegetarian options here and they offer a gluten free menu too!
