Musselducks reverses its nonsmoking policy; Swift Creek Mill offers Sunday brunch; The Fox Head Inn hosts a harvest dinner and wine tasting Thursday, Nov. 9; New downtown lunch room Roly Poly 


is no longer a smoke-free restaurant. In response to a customer survey, the upstairs dining room on Harrison Street near VCU has made several changes, the least of which is the reversal of the nonsmoking policy. They now allow you to huff one in the lounge area and in a small section of the dining room. Other changes customers requested are a salad with every entrée, and the addition of two sandwiches to the menu. Musselduck's new jazz lineup features Evan Mook on piano and Joel Bennet on stand-up bass, 7:30-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. 358-3619. , the Colonial Heights dinner theater, might be the last place you would expect to find Sunday brunch, but that isn't stopping the restaurant from offering a full-scale brunch menu every Sunday. It includes everything from light salads to fritatas to a potato crusted salmon filet with scallion butter sauce, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 748-5203. hosts a harvest dinner and wine tasting Thursday, Nov. 9, with wines from Virginia's Whitehall Vineyards. The dinner is $85 and reservations can be made at 784-5126. The hot new downtown lunch room is Roly Poly, opened in October by Greg Cason and Cynthia Keyser. The restaurant specializes in chicken, seafood, beef and vegetarian sandwiches rolled in a flour tortilla, hence the name. Depending on what you order, Keyser says, you might leave feeling like a little roly-poly yourself. "We have some sandwiches which are fat free," Keyser says, "and some which can be as fattening as you want." Roly Poly opens at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and offers a breakfast roly for the early-morning crowd. 1009 E. Main St. 344-0707.
