Art Comes in (Mostly) Comic Book Form at Telegraph Art and Comics

November 24, 2015 11:50 am

Telegraph Art and Comics celebrates art in all of its many forms, but comics serve as its bread and butter. And as such, its staff is dedicated to finding the best classic and contemporary comics—even if it means looking across oceans. The comic shop sources comics from all over the globe, but also keeps its patrons in staples from Marvel, DC, and other big names in the comic game.

If you're intrigued by some of the smaller publishers on the shelves, ask an employee about their works. Publishers such as Koyama Press and Fantagraphics may not get as much attention as Marvel, but their work is equally impressive and important. In addition to comics, Telegraph also stocks manga, zines, and screen prints. The prints often come in the form of limited edition posters by comic book artists.

Riverview Park: Dogs Hike Off-Leash on Designated Days

November 17, 2015 12:49 pm

Dog owners flock to Riverview Park every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Those are the designated days on which pups are allowed to run around off-leash on the hiking trails that snake throughout this 26-acre park. You should still bring the leash along because your pooch isn't allowed to frolic freely throughout the entire park, but if your dog doesn't typically enjoy leashed walks, this will be a whole new experience for him.

Even if you don't have a dog, though, you're still welcome to enjoy the park's many other features. It connects with the Rivanna Trail, a popular path for local runners and bikers. You can even go fishing from the banks that line the trail. If you bring kids along, head to the playground and run around for a while or pack up a picnic lunch and enjoy your meal on a blanket spread across the grass.

BitterSweet Clothing and Accessories: Embrace Comfy-Chic Style

November 11, 2015 2:03 pm

"What are you waiting for?" It was the challenge that finally spurred Shannon Iaculli to action. After years and years of dreaming about opening her own boutique, her partner's pointed words motivated Shannon to do more than just dream. She opened BitterSweet Clothing and Accessories in 2001, still not totally set on what type of vibe the boutique would exude. Now more than a decade later, its style approach could be described as comfy-chic.

Under the guidance of Shannon, BitterSweet's notoriously friendly staff help Charlottesville women find ensembles that are not only flattering and on-trend, but also comfortable enough to wear on an everyday basis. The pieces are all reasonably priced (and often on sale), so you won't have to blow an entire paycheck on a new outfit, either. From leather boots to leather skirts, the shop has everything you need to create a new look, including Free People, BCBGeneration, and TOMS designs.
