I’m not gonna lie, it wasn’t easy to tune back into the RVA real world from this vacation I’m on and think about things (I was so close to just typing “HARDYWOOD” and calling it a day), but I’d forgotten that yes, OK, there are superfun things I’m missing. So go do these fests, roasts, and dance steps, and pretend that I’m right alongside you.

Various Richmond mainstays on the ol’ cal this weekend, plus some hopeful mainstays-to-be. Here’s a hint: one’s on 2nd Street, one’s in Ginter Park, and one’s on the seat of a bicycle built for one.

Sometimes, while writing this column, I stop and start texting babysitters. This weekend is one of those weekends. Get weird at the Fair, buy some beautiful things, see some innovative dancing, and ABBA ABBA ABBA.

FALL!! Now that “Ugh, summer’s ending,” thoughts have slumped their way out the door, “Hooray, there’s so much to do in the fall!” thoughts are moonwalking right in! This week: international food, nail-biting tension, running, farming, and beer, always with the beer!


So you want to get into dance this month?

Well, now’s the best time. Two big deal events are happening, and you, you lucky dog, are in the prime position to see one or both of them. Don’t think you’re into dance? Wishing you had a cathartic outlet for the beasts inside of you? Turns out, this is the best possible thing for you. Not kidding.
