Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches unveils its newest flavor tonight Manhattan cherry. Its a collaboration with Reservoir Distillery, featuring fresh black cherries macerated in Reservoir bourbon, then simmered and thickened until the alcohol cooks out.The flavor will debut at the sold-out Full Disclosure Live: A Night with Nightingale this Thursday evening. The live event, hosted by Roben Farzad and broadcast on local NPR radio stations, will showcase Nightingale owners Xavier Meers and Hannah Pollack. Nightingale makes the best ice cream sandwiches around, and we like to think we make the best bourbon around, says Jay Carpenter, co-owner and distiller at Reservoir Distillery. It was a natural joining of forces. Carpenter worked with Meers and Pollack to develop the new flavor. It wasnt as simple as dumping a Manhattans mix of bourbon, sweet vermouth and cherry syrup into an ice cream base. Its a fine line because ice cream and alcohol dont play well together, Carpenter says. Alcohol doesnt freeze. The partners also wanted an alcohol-free ice cream sandwich that non-drinkers and children could eat. Although the commercial version is alcohol-free, Meers says the pair also experimented with an adult version that has actual bourbon.Of course we had to make something a little different for us, Meers laughs. We have a private collection. The Manhattan Cherry fits right into the decadent line of sandwiches that Nightingale is fast becoming nationally known for. The rich ice cream is tinged pinkish purple and studded with chunks of dark cherry. Its nestled between two crispy brown-sugar cookies.If the flavor isnt bourbon-forward enough for you, Meers and Carpenter suggest pairing it with Reservoirs new Hunter & Scott Rye, also being released today, and available by special order at ABC stores. Look for Manhattan cherry sandwiches next week in stores and at Reservoirs tasting room.

ARIES March 21-April 19 In the coming weeks, I suspect you will have the wisdom to criticize yourself in constructive ways that will at least partially solve a long-standing problem. Hallelujah I bet you will also understand what to do to eliminate a bad habit by installing a good new habit. Please capitalize on that special knowledge Theres one further capacity I suspect youll have: the saucy ingenuity necessary to alleviate a festering fear. Be audaciousTAURUS April 20-May 20What standards might we use in evaluating levels of sexual satisfaction One cruclal measure is the tenderness and respect that partners have for each other. Others include the ability to play and have fun, the freedom to express oneself uninhibitedly, the creative attention devoted to unpredictable foreplay, and the ability to experience fulfilling orgasms. How do you rate your own levels, Taurus Wherever you may currently fall on the scale, the coming months will be a time when you can accomplish an upgrade. How Read authors who specialize in the erotic arts. Talk to your partners with increased boldness and clarity. While meditating, search for clues in the depths. GEMINI May 21-June 20If there were a Hall of Fame for writers, Shakespeare might have been voted in first. His work is regarded as a pinnacle of intellectual brilliance. And yet heres a fun fact: The Bard quoted well over a thousand passages from the Bible. Can you imagine a modern author being taken seriously by the literati if he or she frequently invoked such a fundamental religious text I bring this to your attention so as to encourage you to be Shakespeare-like in the coming weeks. That is, be willing to draw equally from both intellectual and spiritual sources be a deep thinker who communes with sacred truths synergize the functions of your discerning mind and your devotional heart.CANCER June 21-July 22People will choose unhappiness over uncertainty, writes Cancerian author and entrepreneur Timothy Ferriss. He doesnt do that himself, but rather is quite eager to harvest the perks of dwelling in uncertainty. I presume this aptitude has played a role in his huge success his books have appeared on bestseller lists and his podcasts have been downloaded more than 300 million times. In telling you this, Im not encouraging you to embrace the fertile power of uncertainty 24 hours a day and 365 days of every year. But I am urging you to do just that for the next three weeks. Therell be big payoffs if you do, including rich teachings on the art of happiness.LEO July 23-Aug. 22Many eighteenth-century pirates were committed to democracy and equality among their ranks. The camaraderie and fairness and mutual respect that prevailed on pirate ships were markedly different from the oppressive conditions faced by sailors who worked for the navies of sovereign nations. The latter were often pressed into service against their will and had to struggle to collect meager salaries. Tyrannical captains controlled all phases of their lives. I bring this to your attention, Leo, with the hope that it will inspire you to seek out alternative approaches to rigid and hierarchical systems. Gravitate toward generous organizations that offer you ample freedom and rich alliances. The time is right to ally yourself with emancipatory influences.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22Dont wait around for fate to decide which decisions you should make and what directions you should go. Formulate those decisions yourself, with your willpower fully engaged. Never say, If its meant to be, it will happen. Rather, resolve to create the outcomes you strongly desire to happen. Do you understand how important this is You shouldnt allow anyone else to frame your important questions and define the nature of your problems youve got to do the framing and defining yourself. One more thing: dont fantasize about the arrival of the perfect moment. The perfect moment is whenever you decree it is.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22In the coming weeks, I hope youll regularly give yourself to generous, expansive experiences. I hope youll think big, funny thoughts and feel spacious, experimental emotions. I hope youll get luxurious glimpses of the promise your future holds, and I hope youll visualize yourself embarking on adventures and projects youve been too timid or worried to consider before now. For best results, be eager to utter the word MORE as you meditate on the French phrase joie de vivre and the English phrase a delight in being alive.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21According to Popular Mechanics magazine, over three million sunken ships are lying on the bottoms of the worlds oceans. Some of them contain billions of dollars worth of precious metals and jewels. Others are crammed with artifacts that would be of great value to historians and archaeologists. And heres a crazy fact: fewer than one percent of all those potential treasures have been investigated by divers. I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because I hope it might inspire you to explore your inner worlds equivalent of lost or unknown riches. The astrological omens suggest that the coming weeks will be an excellent time to go searching for them.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21Some days you need gods grace, writes poet Scherezade Siobhan. On other days: the feral tongue of vintage whiskey and a mouth kissed by fire. Im guessing, Sagittarius, that these days you might be inclined to prefer the feral tongue of vintage whiskey and a mouth kissed by fire. But according to my astrological analysis, those flashy phenomena would not motivate you to take the corrective and adaptive measures you actually need. The grace of godor whatever passes for the grace of god in your worldis the influence that will best help you accomplish whats necessary. Fortunately, I suspect you know how to call on and make full use of that grace.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19Capricorn poet William Stafford articulated some advice that I think you need to hear right now. Please hold it close to your awareness for the next 21 days. Saying things you do not have to say weakens your talk, he wrote. Hearing things you do not need to hear dulls your hearing. By practicing those protective measures, Capricorn, you will foster and safeguard your mental health. Now heres another gift from Stafford: Things you know before you hear themthose are you, those are why you are in the world.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18Love is an immoderate thing / And can never be content, declared poet W. B. Yeats. To provide you with an accurate horoscope, Ill have to argue with that idea a bit. From what I can determine, love will indeed be immoderate in your vicinity during the coming weeks. On the other hand, its likely to bring you a high degree of contentmentas long as youre willing to play along with its immoderateness. Heres another fun prediction: I suspect that loves immoderateness, even as it brings you satisfaction, will also inspire you to ask for more from love and expand your capacity for love. And that could lead to even further immoderate and interesting experiments.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20You will know you are in sweet alignment with cosmic forces if you have an impulse to try a rash adventure, but decide instead to work on fixing a misunderstanding with an ally. You can be sure youre acting in accordance with your true intuition if you feel an itch to break stuff, but instead channel your fierce energy into improving conditions at your job. You will be in tune with your souls code if you start fantasizing about quitting what youve been working on so hard, but instead sit down and give yourself a pep talk to reinvigorate your devotion and commitment.

Jill Scott, Maz and Big Boi Among Headliners at Richmond Jazz and Music Festival
05/21/2019 12:00am

Richmonds big midsummer music event unveiled a new name this week, adding and Music to the Richmond Jazz Festival -- along with its 2019 lineup of once and future stars.The headliners are Jill Scott, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Big Boi from Outcast, and fusion bassist Stanley Clark -- all sharing a familiar nostalgic charm. These performances always bring out the big, singalong crowds. But as usual its the undercard that contains some of the most interesting artists.The booking, overseen by Ken Johnson of JMII, always have been adventurous, catching artists on the cusp of wider fame -- including Kamasi Washington, Ccile McLorin Salvant, or last years Jazzmeia Horn. This year such artists as Anderson East and Cautious Clay were invited based on appearances on NPRs Tiny Desk Concert.The continuous mix of music features simultaneous acts on three stages on the lovely Maymont grounds, with food, drink and a wild assortment of vendors set strategically between every point A and B. So theres no reason to be bored with anything for long.Johnson says hes gotten some push back on the new name. After all, jazz is music. But jazz is only one of the ingredients of most jazz festivals. Theyre rounded out by a wide mix of other genres -- blues, R&B, hip-hop, reggae and soul -- that share the same deep roots in black American music.Jazz has the glamour of high-culture respectability, the brand-association glow that attracts such sponsors as Altria and Dominion Energy. But as one of its greatest artists, Duke Ellington, famously said, There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind. Nobody likes everything, but theres more than enough here to chart a path through a full weekend of good music. The festival runs Aug. 8-11, with information at richmondjazzfestival.com.Artists Jill Scott Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly Big Boi Stanley Clarke Shaggy Gregory Porter Peter White Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Ledisi Terence Blanchard Featuring the E-Collective Cameo Lizz Wright Black Violin Ro James Bobby Caldwell Stephen Marley Anderson East PJ Morton The B.B.

How a new art show incorporates more in its definition of wonder women. Contrary to what DC Comics may have put forth, wonder women come in all shapes, sizes, races, weights and ability levels.Thats the starting point for the Intersectional Wonder Womxn Art Show, Volume 2: Truthsayer, which celebrates all kinds of women in a one-night fundraiser at Studio Two Three.Intersectionality, also known as intersectional feminism, is a branch of feminism that identifies how different aspects of social and political discrimination overlap with gender. Many factors -- class, race, religion, sexual orientation, creed, disability, age and gender -- are included when considering intersectional feminism and its myriad effects.Social worker Chelsea Higgs Wise, who is co-chairing the event with Ngiste Abebe, says a big part of why she got involved was to give women a place for truth telling.Women arent given a voice in many spaces and women are speakers of truth, Wise says. The Intersectional Wonder Womxn Art Show encourages different sections of women to tell their truths and use art to do it.Wise works in case management, often with women of color who are mothers. She suggested the truth-sayer theme as a way to encourage women to tell their truths and be brave enough to hear what other women had to say.The artists tapped for the show are women, chosen for their diversity and what their art expressed. We were very accepting, but made sure that the art didnt express values that would be disruptive in the space, she says. We wanted to make sure this was a truly inclusive space for all.Wise says space-making is important, so the art shows location, Studio Two Three, was selected because of its commitment to community and openness. It didnt hurt that there are gender-neutral bathrooms.The beneficiary of the evenings fundraising is Safe Harbor, a nonprofit that supports people affected by domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking. Safe Harbor often is a resource for the women Wise works with, she says, making it another reason to be involved. Last years event raised more than $5,500 for the nonprofit.Working with Safe Harbor is about making space for women not always seen as women, like trans women and nonbinary women, Wise says. Thats why we use the x in Wonder Womxn. Were looking beyond a traditional definition of women.Beyond fundraising, she says, the goal is to bring about the power of women collaborating. Artists will be able to sell work, advocates can organize and volunteers can give back. It will demonstrate what we can do when we come together as a coalition, Wise says.Cheyenne Varner, the creative force behind Everyday Birth, says she signed on to create the poster for the art show because bringing voice to intersectionality resonates strongly with her. Theres a lot of homogeneity in the press, she says. I try to be intentional about creating artwork that includes those who arent usually seen, giving the rest of us a moment in the light.Her poster image nods to comic-book stylings and includes a paraphrased Frederick Douglass quote that says: When a great truth starts getting around, no power on earth can imprison it or limit it or suppress it. Its going to go on until the whole world knows it. Next to the words, a black woman with dreadlocks is crouching, her body parts colored with leaves, water, wood and stone.I used powerful elements of the earth, Varner says, noting that people with dreads arent typically shown. Her stance is Wonder Woman-like, low to the ground, so her power comes from underneath and moves up her body to become strong.Varner was Wises first choice for the artwork. Seeing the different textures in the piece, its almost a visual representation of intersectionality, she says.And while the original Wonder Woman may not have been drawn as inclusively as she could have been, at least her intentions still resonate. In Wonder Woman comic No. 170, Wonder Woman tells ace reporter Lois Lane, If it means interfering in an ensconced, outdated system, to help just one woman Im willing to accept the consequences.Intersectional Wonder Womxn Art Show, May 23, 6-8 p.m. at Studio Two Three, 3300 W. Clay St., wonderwomenartshow.com.

Watch the Leather

Rider Boot Co. looks to expand its Italian-made boot line. If you ask Ron Rider, high heels should be outlawed.And he should know. Rider is a second-generation, 30-year veteran of the shoe business who for 15 years managed the shoe department at Francos Fine Clothier. When he became frustrated at the kind of shoes available to Francos, he decided in 2007 to design his own with the owners blessing. The Rider Boot Co. brand was officially born in 2007 and there are exactly zero high-heeled shoes in the line.After developing a core line of classic Italian-made mens and womens boots, Rider went into business for himself in 2011, selling them online out of a home office and a storage shed filled with inventory. It only took five years for the business to grow to the point that it could sustain a storefront location and the Jackson Ward Rider Boot Shop opened in November 2016 to fit and sell custom Italian-made boots and shoes.Passionate as Rider and his wife Lisa are about quality-made shoes and boots, theyve widened the stores focus with custom leather goods belts, bags, wallets, eyeglass cases and clutches made right in the shop. The stores back rooms house the machinery required to create custom leather goods: two industrial sewing machines, a burnisher for finishing edges, a device that thins the leather where it needs to be sewn together, a drill, a machine that adds snaps and a device that stamps their logo on each piece.We work with a tanner in Tuscany to bring in quality leather, explains Ron Rider of bringing in hides to match shoes in the store. Customers can then, for instance, custom order a belt by choosing the leather and buckle that best suits them. Already, hotels and other businesses are ordering custom-made leather goods for their own use.With their newfound focus on leather goods, the couple is looking to looking to increase production and make it a bigger part of sales. Currently, its 90 percent shoes and 10 percent leather goods, but by this time next year, they expect it to be more like half and half. The custom leather goods are becoming pretty popular and weve had repeat customers already, Lisa says. The great thing about Richmond is they love to support Richmonders doing something interesting.The problem with growing that side of the business is running a storefront while building up an inventory of custom leather goods. Its hard to be in the middle of a stitch line and the phone rings or a customer walks in the shop, Lisa admits. Its not easy to go back and pick up that stitch. For that reason, along with the fact that the majority of their business happens on Fridays and Saturdays and, incidentally, mainly visitors to Richmond find their way to the storefront the couple is considering an adjustment to store hours so it will only be open those two days, allowing more time for making things.One thing Ron Rider has gleaned from decades in the business is that people get excited when they get something that not everyone will have. We dont want to be trendy, we just want to sell good stuff. Rider Boot Shop, 18 W. Broad St.
