Over 2,000 Turn Out for SERTOMA Spring Fever 2012

Over 2,000 Turn Out for SERTOMA Spring Fever 2012 It is spring time in Hampton Roads and the natives are getting restless. Why? Because the much anticipated Spring Fever event is just around the corner. Truly a community gathering, diversity of age and status abound at Spring Fever. Trendy young professionals who are part of the local social scene converge in droves each year. They say the lively event is like an adult “spring break” getaway (sans the sandy beaches, bikinis, and late night shenanigans). The more seasoned revelers liken Spring Fever to a huge block party where you can catch up with old friends, and make new ones. Prominent business leaders and political figures make it a point to attend and rub shoulders. Consquently the event has affectionately become known as the “great barn party” of south Hampton Roads. And what a party it is! This year’s Spring Fever, held on April 21 at the event’s usual jaunt – the expansive ...

Epic Elvis Concert to be Re-Created at Sandler Center (Save the Date!)

Epic Elvis Concert to be Re-Created at Sandler Center (Save the Date!) 40 years ago today, the world stood still. At least it did for the more than 1 billion people in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe who watched Elvis Presley, “The King,” make history as the first solo entertainer to broadcast live via satellite on January 14, 1973. Complete with his perfectly tanned skin and rhinestone studded jumpsuit, the concert, “Aloha from Hawaii,” was quintessential Elvis. Millions who had heretofore seen Elvis only on album covers, or heard his songs only on transistor radio, were able to see his every gyration… hear his every “thank you very much,” live! Legend has it that in many countries villagers gathered around small communal black & whites, jerry-rigged with hangers for clear transmission, to see this American phenom. By all accounts, the concert was worth the price of admission: a donation to to fight cancer. (There was no charge to attend Aloha from ...

Hampton Roads Gets Down and Dirty to Help Military Families

Hampton Roads Gets Down and Dirty to Help Military Families “I don’t know what I was thinking when I agreed to do this,” Dana Geiger, a 36 year old executive and mother of two from Virginia Beach told Hampton Roads Social. “The fact is, I was bullied into it!” Dana, looking no worse for wear in her grimy workout gear had just completed the Armed Services YMCA Mud Run that takes participants through a grueling course of obstacles and terrain to help support the Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads. In its 12th year, the 8K run held this year on August 11 at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek tests the mental perseverance and physical endurance of hardcore and casual athletes alike (many of them dressed in quirky attire) as they run up and down sand dunes, get on their bellies for low crawls, cut across creeks, and negotiate ...

Virginia Squires Reunite for Love and Basketball

Virginia Squires Reunite for Love and Basketball In the book “You Can’t Go Home Again,” by Thomas Wolfe, the protagonist, George Webber realizes, “”You can’t go back home to your family, back home to your childhood … back home to a young man’s dreams of glory and of fame … back home to places in the country, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time – back home to the escapes of Time and Memory.” But then again, maybe you can. If only for just a few hours. And so it was for the ABA Virginia Squires at the Cavalier Hotel Beach Club on May 1 when hundreds of adoring fans welcomed their beloved (albeit beleaguered) team for their first-ever reunion since folding and leaving town 40 years ago. The Squires were the first professional team based in Hampton Roads. In a standing room only ballroom, ...
