It is “Shakespeare in the air,“ according to William Reeder, dean, George Mason University College of Visual and Performing Arts. He called dance at Mason “simply extraordinary, and world-class.”

Restaurant receives liquor license.

Since opening this past year, En Bistro and Sushi has impressed the Potomac community with its fresh sushi and sashimi, served in a manner that resembles a piece of fine art, instead of a dinner entrée.

The kimono was sent to owner Billy Ye by his mother many years ago — and he has been waiting to find the just right spot for hanging it.
