Leesburg Still Visited -- If an hour's drive home from dinner at Jordan's sounds like a bad end to a good evening, look into the neighborhood's bed-and-breakfasts. In fact, just across the street is a delightful one, the Norris House Inn, its four rooms with shared baths ranging from $55 to $85 (for a master bedroom with canopy bed and fireplace). The rooms are full of sunny, antique charm: yellow wallpaper in one, colonial blue in another, stenciled and lace-edged linens on the beds, good books and magazines on the tables. In summer you could enjoy the flower garden with its hammock and a glass of wine on the porch. In winter, the parlor is more of an attraction, with its games and kaleidoscopes, sherry and port in the evening. And breakfast is an event, served with the family silver and pretty china. The menu might be poached eggs with mustard sauce on english muffins, and ham glazed with honey and raisins. Or another day, salmon quiche with bacon. There will be a particularly good fresh fruit cup or some other fruit, plus juice, the house's special blend of coffee, and homemade muffins, perhaps lemon nut or apple. For the rest of the day: a walking tour of historic Leesburg, a bike ride back on the W & OD path, or you could hope to get snowed in for a nap and dinner again at Jordan's.
Please, Waiter, Could You Exchange This Napkin for a Bib? -- Wolensky's has inaugurated the latest day care system for children and their zoo-tired parents: a Kid's Brunch. On Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., children are served up all- time kiddie favorites such as grilled cheese, hamburgers or hot dogs and french fries. All this, for $1.95, plus a free milkshake, take-home balloon and a waitress-turned-clown who makes the rounds in her colorful ensemble. And lest the parents feel left out, all adult brunches include a free glass of champagne.
