Editor's Corner October 2017


By Catherine Pritchard

Welcome to our annual Food and Wine issue, full of treats for the eyes, ears (yes!) and stomach.

We have food for thought, too.

It’s a treat for me to be part of this. I’m brand-new to CityView – hi! – but I’ve lived in Fayetteville for 24 years and spent 23 of those years writing for The Fayetteville Observer. So I know a bit about the city and guess what: I like it here. There are lots of great people, great places and great things to do in and around Fayetteville and I’m happy to be part of a publication that’s dedicated to sharing and showcasing those stories.

I’ve met a lot of you over the years and I look forward to meeting many more of you going forward. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line at editor@cityviewnc.com if you think there’s something we should know about. I can’t promise we’ll get to everything but we’ll definitely give it thought.

Back to this issue: One of the pleasures of being CityView’s editor is getting to go with ace photographer Matthew Wonderly when he takes pictures that accompany our stories. So I got to see the cool art at Cape Fear Vineyard and Winery in Elizabethtown, I got to hear the talented Kia Walker play her blue violin and also sing and I got to taste a bit of the beautiful produce from Sandhills Farm to Table’s packing site in Whispering Pines. I hope you’ll enjoy reading these stories and the others. Dig in!
