About two weeks ago on a Wednesday summer afternoon the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce hosted an after hours event in a special garden, the West Virginia Botanic Garden.
The turnout exceeded expectations with the invitation of kids for the first time. A firetruck was onsite as well as two goats for petting. The band, The Weathered Road, offered a trio combination of violin, guitar and Djembe drum that could be heard as soon as I entered the garden drive. The background music was a perfect compliment to conversation and the soft landscape islands scattered throughout the meadow. Nearby, my favorite spot in the garden could be enjoyed solo as it is hidden within a grove of trees. It is the Secret Garden on the map below.
Visit the Botanic Garden at 1061 Tyrone Rd in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Looking for a new restaurant in the Cheat Lake area of Morgantown?
Try Pascal’s, a restaurant my firm, Mills Group, helped make a reality.
It went from the home above to the demolition below to…
…to ? You will have to go visit to see the end product!
Allegheny Restoration took on the construction of the new restaurant and worked closely with the owners to assure that they had the kitchen, dining, and atmosphere the young couple desired. I look forward to my first visit soon.

Spent a great time the Friday night after Thanksgiving in Thomas, WV at the Purple Fiddle listening to Mo’ Mojo and their Zydeco tunes.
It got me in the mood of music. Live music in Morgantown this week can be found at some of my favorite places to eat: Black Bear Downtown and Evansdale locations, Brew Pub / Morgantown Brewing, The Iron Horse Tavern, Terra Cafe, and Mountain State Brewing Co.
A Jazz band my husband and I have befriended, The Jenny Wilson Trio, will be playing at many of these establishments throughout the week. If you like music, check them out. They are also promoting The West Virginia Jazz Society who is having their 6th Annual Winter Jazz Weekend on Friday & Saturday the 23rd & 24th at the Bridgeport Conference Center. New York City’s Eddie Allen will appear both nights. More information at www.wvjazzsociety.com.
