Last weekend paid us a lot of money under the table to pretend like it was the start of the holiday season. This weekend paid us more.
Archives: 5 Things
Eat up, Americans! The time is nigh to remember the anniversary of those smallpox blankets we were so keen to regift. Luckily, we persevered in our quest to populate the New World, otherwise we wouldn’t be around to experience all of these awesome things to do.
This 5 Things is completely holiday free, and if all goes as planned, you’ll start next week with new ink stuck in your skin and the tune from a classic musical or a light-hearted opera stuck in your head.
Dancing, shopping, eating, drinking, and running. What else is there in life? This weekend isn’t the time to ponder that question. Dive right in with this selection of not-to-be-missed Richmond events.
I have reached deep into the murky waters of the event pool and produced this careful assortment of sparkling gems—a hilarious play, a beautiful sight, a thought-provoking conference, a collaborative storytelling craft circle, and a one-of-a-kind performance. All you have to do is show up.
Halloween is STILL GOING, if you can believe it. But this weekend, as Halloween gets old and murky like an overripe jack’o'lantern, the gleam of other fall activities begins to shine through. Fortunately, many still involve beer, so the party’s not over yet.
We’re learning, we’re eating, we’re bonding, and we’re drinking. Always, we’re drinking. This weekend is as pleasantly cool as the daily high temperatures, and I want you to take advantage of one of my top-3 favorite seasons.
Guys, I’ve found so many free things for you this weekend—some inspiring talks, leaps off buildings, and ways to feel radical about yourself. With all that money you’ll save, there will be plenty of time to buy, like, 20 theater tickets. That’s good, because you have about that many dramatic options.
The Folk Festival may be pretty amazing, but it’s not the only feather in RVA’s cap this weekend. Whether you’re a groover, a dreamer, a mover, or a screamer (or, uh, a web developer), you’ll find something to get you out of the house this weekend.
Ain’t no October like a Richmond October ’cause a Richmond October don’t stop. Like ever. Seriously, calendars are filling up faster than you can “Pumpkin Spice Latte” — and this is just the first weekend!
