Fests, chicken wings, and an army of restaurants battle for your affections over the next couple of days.
Archives: 5 Things
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!
Taking a break from music this weekend after last week’s exhausting but fulfilling Fall Line Fest. Oh, it’s still all exhausting and fulfilling though. Comic Con, artsencrafts, drinking your weight in beer, basking in food truck glory, and hauling tires out of a river.
Fall Line Fest! FALL LINE FEST! Fall…..linefest.com. It’s finally here, with an expanded list of whattohear and whattoeat and whattosee. You could plan your entire weekend flitting from here to there and reaping the bounty of these talented performers, but my top picks are contained herein as the first three Things. Also: other stuff to do.
Celebrate the August that was with a weekend full of Things.
As the city wakes up from its summer repose, wring the last drops of summer from the fabric of your weekend. Labor Day weekend fast approacheth, y’all. Get moving.
Some happy things, some sad things, some meat-based things, some athletic things. This weekend has a lot going for it, if you like fun. DO YOU?
