Grace Street’s Candlelight Home Tour set for February

The West Grace Street Association is hosting its third annual Candlelight Home Tour on Saturday, February 11, 2012, from 4-8PM. This walking tour features a selection of six beautiful and architecturally significant homes along West Grace street.

The tour’s theme is A Taste of Grace. Guests will sample signature dishes presented by “celebrity” neighborhood restaurant chefs, and will taste Virginia wines from Cooper Vineyards. A relaxed schedule is designed to allow time to experience the neighborhood and its flavors. Participating restaurants include The Empress, Emilio’s, Gus’ Bar & Grill, Lucille’s Bakery, The Camel, and The Republic.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the tour (if available). Guests should buy tickets early as the tour sold out last year. Ticket sales begin Monday, January 9, 2012 at Strawberry Fields Flowers & Gifts (432 Strawberry St.), Strawberry Street Vineyard (407 Strawberry St.), Lucille’s Bakery (719 N. Meadow St.), and Lift Coffee (218 W. Broad St.) Proceeds benefit the West Grace Street Association, dedicated to the betterment of the neighborhood.

Tour sponsors can enjoy exposure in our print and electronic media, as well as free tour tickets. Visit or contact Pam Embrey at 804-337-9486 or
