Mr. Kim and I visited The Olive Oil Taproom: http://theoliveoiltaproom.com/about-us/ this weekend. It is a wonderful resource for oils, vinegars and even some cheeses and wines. The fantastic thing is that you can taste all of the oils and vinegars. The owners/staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and did some really interesting pairings for us. All of it is in small vats, so that you can buy any amount you like. It is a bit hidden away in the Short Pump area just behind the new Ethan Allan store on the north side of Broad St. I hadn't seen any ads and just happened to notice it one day when I was taking my dad to the doctors. I didn't want anyone to miss this. It is a real find and a welcome addition to the area!

Cool! I work on the west end and live further west, so this will be an easy stop on the way home from work. Thanks Kim! And we still need to get together!

Do go, Jess - but when you have a little time to spend. We were there almost an hour, I think! And, yes, we need to make plans - I'm zooming back and forth to NC, but I'll PM you with my schedule soon. Maybe we can contribute to the 'Ladies Who Lunch' thread!
