Situated among cobblestone streets in the Freemason District of Norfolk, Cure Coffeehouse and Brasserie offers markedly distinct sandwiches, salads, coffee and espresso, specialty and exotic soda, craft beer and wine.

InstaMeet feature 4/5: downtown Norfolk from above by @jimmyolivero. Jimmy, along with your feature you receive a gift card to @parlorongranby. The Parlor on Granby features live music, local art and a changing menu of classic comfort food with an innovative twist (their waffles will own you) in a modern and unique atmosphere. The Parlor is a local spot you definitely want to check out. So says our eyes and stomachs.
InstaMeet feature 2/5: FRED’s eyes (“Free Ride Every Day,” the free golf cart taxi in downtown Norfolk) by @mepreston. Michael, along with your feature you receive a gift card to @eatthestreets757. Eat The Streets is a network of quality food trucks dedicated to bringing amazing street food to Hampton Roads. Not only did they sponsor our InstaMeet, but they provided two food trucks for us to sample from. Delish! Eat The Streets is currently petitioning the city of Va Beach to bring a ‘hub’ of local businesses to 708 Atlantic Ave. The Hub will feature food trucks, artists, artisans, brewers and musicians working side by side to bring the residents and tourists of Hampton Roads a new and exciting open air market. Sign the petition and support the cause: ets757.com
We had a blast hosting our first InstaMeet at The Plot yesterday! Lots of 757 cities represented and even some folks from outside the 757 showed up. Many thanks to @eatthestreets757 and @twistedsisterscupcakes for coming out and providing some delicious eats. Photos are still being added to the event hashtag, #WWIM11_757. We’ll be featuring shots from the meet all this week. If you couldn’t make it out this time, no worries, we’ll be hosting another meet this summer.
