5 Things for Families

So long, Big Bike Race™, and thanks for all the ennui. Here are five things that sound pretty fun. I guess.


5 Things for Families: Bikes! Bikes! Virginia! Pumpkins! More bikes!

What a weekend to be a Richmonder, amirite?!??


5 Things for Families: Swordplay, bluegrass, stars, Pete the Cat, and the Dooleys

Yes, yes, the Big Bike Race™ starts on Saturday. And while we encourage (nay, command!) you to get out and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime event, here are a few ways to fill in time between all those time trials and circuits.

A bit of a hodgepodge this weekend, but in a really good way.

So long, sweet summer…


5 Things for Families: The dark, a new park, minions, studying frogs, falling off sheep

When it comes to my directive about these 5 Things, I’ve gotta quote the great Charlie Kelly: SO DO.


5 Things for Families: Teeth, stars, art, ponies, bluegrass

It’s awesome how Richmond has decided to not be all Hellmouth-y this summer. Get out and enjoy it, less-sweaty-than-usual friends!


5 Things for Families: Crabby, bikey, watery, tasty, anything but cutesy

This weekend involves things all Richmonders are required to love: bikes, stuff from Hanover, the river, rocking/rolling, and organic food. Wow, we sound kind of insufferable. Except for the Hanover part. That place is pretty adorable.


5 Things for Families: Festivals, bowling, bus practice, and Buttercup

When writing about one of this week’s events, Valerie Catrow actually got choked up because of how cute it’s going to be. Can you guess which one?


5 Things for Families: Cops on horseback, Diggity Dudes, kid art, capes, and a bunch of boobs

Saturday is the first day of August. Slow your roll, Father Time! We’ve still got some summertime living to do!
