Summer Dogwood Dell Schedule

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Dogwood Dell, home to the Festival of Arts, is a 2.400 seat amphitheatre owned and operated by the City of Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation & Community Facilities. Since 1956, the Festival of Arts has been based at Dogwood Dell and is a summer long celebration of the arts featuring concerts, dance and theatre – an eclectic mix of old and new.  The festival brings some of the most innovative avant-garde performers along with those who personify the value and importance of traditional classic works. During June, July, and August, a variety of shows including classical music and dance, drama, comedy, musical theater, reggae, pop, swing, rhythm and blues, rock, jazz, and contemporary music will fill the ‘Dell.” Here’s the schedule beginning with season opener June 11th with the Upper East Side Big Band at 8 PM.  Take a seat or bring a blanket and enjoy each and every show all season long.

So if your travels bring you to Richmond and our premier bed and breakfast, make sure you see what’s on at the Dell – it’s only a mile from our Fan District inn.

Crazy High-speed Internet

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Here at the William Miller House bed and breakfast we pride ourselves on being bleeding edge, whether it’s breakfast, seasonal decorations, or technology.  So when Verizon  offered a higher speed internet connect we opted-in  as an early adopter.   Here at the inn our WiFi was 20MB down and 6MB up and was meeting our needs.  However, when offered the capability to increase the speed to 35MB down and 35MB up we said; ” where  do we sign up?”  Effective June 2, 2010 our wifi is now faster than ever in both directions, good news for our guest and GREAT news for our business travelers.  I guess if this keeps up we will have to upgrade our wifi!
