February 16, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Departs from Suffolk Visitor Center
See Suffolk through the eyes of years gone by.
Suffolk’s rich heritage dates back to the early 17th century, when Captain John Smith first encountered the Nansemond Indians on the Nansemond River. Even now, you can trace Suffolk’s legacy through our historic homes and neighborhoods, churches and Virginia Civil War Trails. Guided by a Suffolk historian, you meet the people and places that made Suffolk the city it is today. Highlights of this windshield tour include Cedar Hill Cemetery, Riddick’s Folly House Museum, Constant’s Wharf, College Court and Suffolk’s Historic Lakeside neighborhood.
February 16, 2019, 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM @ Hub 757
Join in the fun when Hub 757 hosts comedian Tony Deyo on Saturday, February 16, 2019, beginning at 7:30pm. Known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician, New York City's Village Voice calls Tony Deyo "one of the tightest joke writers in the business." He will be joined by opener Quincy Carr, a local favorite, who helped form the 'Clean & Quality Comedy Tour' and since 2010, presents Virginia's only all clean adult live comedy show.
