  1. Wow, RVANews is seriously blowing my mind today. First the debut of Weather Dan, then TCG and Bopst Show, and now a list of places to brunch (only my favorite meal of the weekend!) in RVA. Can I buy stock in RVANews.com? Or, maybe I’ll just start with a t-shirt…

    This looks to be a very well put together list. Thanks for doing all the leg work! My belly thanks you!

    Ahh.. I needed this list this past weekend, Holly! But we ended up going to McLean’s on Broad St. and had a classic greasy spoon breakfast… it was wonderful!
