Luce is Charlottesville’s new go-to takeout authentic pasta place

(11/19/19 2:00am)

Luce is a cozy, hole-in-the-wall window to order fresh Italian pasta right off the Downtown Mall. I heard about Luce through some friends at the University who only had amazing things to say. Charlottesville has local takeout food options that hit almost every category such as Brazos Tacos, Roots’ salads, Bodo's Bagels, The Flat‘s crepes and more. However, a restaurant that specializes in takeout Italian pasta hadn’t existed as a local, affordable and easy meal option before Luce opened.

As a result, The Cavalier Daily lost the majority of its financial and legal support and has continued to distance itself from the University as a benefactor ever since.

A guide to the ultimate fall snack: Pumpkin seeds

(11/18/19 4:47am)

Thanksgiving looms around the corner, and the holiday festivities eagerly await their turn to replace autumnal leaves with mistletoe, apple picking with snowball fights. If you’re anything like me, you’ll miss the abundance of fall recipes that late November will bid farewell. But there’s no need to say goodbye yet — as long as you bought pumpkins for decoration and have an hour to spare, you already have the key ingredient for many last-minute fall treats.
