Featured This Month...
For more than 40 years, Habitat for Humanity has striven toward their mission
of ensuring a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat
ReStores--operated by Habitat for Humanity affi liates--work hand-in-hand
to carry out this mission. All ReStore proceeds are used to fund local projects.
Prince William County Habitat for Humanity president Traci DeGroat explains
that the county's largest ReStore opened in 2004 and has been in its current
38,000-square-foot Manassas location for over two years. The ReStore
welcomes donations of furniture--sometimes even designer pieces are
available--and appliances and has an amazing variety of building materials,
all at 4090% off of retail prices.
She notes that anyone is welcome to shop here, and not only do shoppers
save a lot of money, what they do spend is put toward a great cause. One
local project launching this week includes refurbishing a Manassas veteran's
home, including replacing windows and siding, and improving accessibility
features. In addition, the ReStore is always in need of regular volunteers. All
you need is a few hours each week and the will to lend a helping hand. To
learn more, call
(703) 369-6145.
Jason Flis has made a bunch of outstanding changes at
Eclipse Restaurant
Sports Bar and Billiards. Having recently revamped the former under-21
nightclub by adding the sports bar, not only does it offer greatly expanded
space, the fun factor has exploded too!
They feature live bands and DJs every week, as well as a monthly comedy
show with DC Improv Comedy Club comedians. This month's show is on
October 20 beginning at 8:30 and boasts fi ve hilarious men and women,
including CJ Burney, Pete Bladel, Rosebud Baker, Pat Riley, and Ty Davis.
After the show, stick around for some great DJ music!
And if you're a Halloween fan, you won't want to miss two parties late this
month. There will be costume contests on both Friday, October 26 and
Saturday, October 27 with cash prizes in a variety of categories, including best
couple's costume and best overall costume. In addition, Saturday evening's
party features live music by a local band, the Screaming Monkeys, which
performs your favorite classic, progressive, alternative, and modern rock
songs! To learn more, call
(571) 222-7221.
