Film nerd? Art nerd? Comic book nerd? Small-batch alcoholic beverage nerd? Philanthropic nerd? All of you have your work cut out for you this weekend. PS – Philanthropic nerd, you’re the best kind of nerd.
Archives: 5 Things
I had to leave out some Things this week, as there can be only five! JK, there’s six this week, because I felt like it. And all this live classical music, comedy, weird frigging interactive theater, and #ramsramsrams could not be ignored.
VCU cruises, and the new Rams shine.
I haven’t looked at the weather, because at this time of year, it’s too easy to be disappointed. At least in January you can confidently stop planning outdoor things, you know? But there’s a variety of indoor/outdoor things for you this weekend, from sweet festivals to irreverent musicals.
I’m just an average ghoul, trying to get some candy for goblin. Food! Fun! Terror! Halloween is so weird!
A beautiful dance, a disgusting parade. A delectable meal, some feats of strength. And the Rams. The Rams are back. Do you hear what I’m telling you? THE RAMS ARE BACK.
Fests, chicken wings, and an army of restaurants battle for your affections over the next couple of days.
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.
