What a GREAT Wheeling event last weekend with the inaugural Dragon Boat Race.   Congratulations  to Jamie Remp and King’s Daughters; we can’t wait until next year!  But now that those damn dragons have left town, (don’t worry –  on their own accord, not ’cause of the algae), it’s time to look forward to the kickoff of the fall season and a classic Wheeling tradition: Labor Day Weekend.  Do Something.


Vagabond Party! Moving Celebration

Friday 6 p.m.-10 p.m.

Wheeling, if the Vagabond Chef doesn’t succeed, Wheeling won’t succeed.  SUPPORT the Vagabond Chef as they move to some new digs.

From the Vagabond Crew:

“Trust us; we are as excited about our impending move as you are! We want to celebrate and invite you to come celebrate with us.
In addition a good excuse for a great time, we will be kicking off a Kickstarter Campaign to help us raise part of the money we need to move the Kitchen, and also launching the Vagabond Chef on a tour around the state.”
