Netflix’s “The Dig,” is a period piece set in Suffolk, England in 1939 showcasing the excavation of Sutton Hoo, a medieval cemetery dating back to the 6th and 7th centuries. Make sure to have tissues on deck as this film is emotional, dramatic and thought-provoking. It attempts to answer the question of what happens to us after we die. Who will remember us? How will we be remembered? The movie features stars such as Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes and Lily James. 

Place to Visit: Citrus 

            With two locations in Virginia Beach, Citrus is the perfect spot for brunch lovers. Not only are their meals made entirely from scratch, but all the produce is locally sourced from local farmers and producers in the coastal Virginia Beach area. Fan favorites include mango almond croissant French toast, breakfast BLTs and citrus chicken cold sandwiches. Both locations are open every day except Tuesdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Outside dining, take out, and curbside services are available. Indoor dining is open at fifty percent capacity. 

 

Song to Listen to: Drivers License 

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” made headlines within the first week it was released. Rolling Stone Magazine noted that “Drivers License,” was streamed 67.7 million times during its first week of being released. According Jon Caramanica, a critic for the New York Times, the song “successfully balances dark yet crisp melodrama with bold tunefulness, softly pointed singing with sharp imagery. It is, in every way, a modern and successful pop song.” “Drivers License” is available on Spotify and YouTube Music.
