Moonshine and Comics at RIR

I’d like to see a super hero powered by moonshine.

Two events going on at RIR this Saturday one with a focus on booze and one with a focus on comics.

Both descriptions were grabbed from this morning’s 5 Things which you should read for the other three.


Cider Week rolls on? Who cares (me, a lot)! There’s the Virginia Moonshine Festival at the Ol’ Dominion Building! $20 per day gets you a mason jar that you will then fill with moonshine, beer, and wine samplings. Feeling drunk as a country skunk? There’s food pairings to make sure this ‘shine isn’t pouring into your bloodstream through your empty stomach lining like curdled milk through grandma’s leaky sieve. I have no idea how to talk about moonshine.

Saturday, November 22nd • 12:00 – 6:00 PM
Richmond International Raceway, Old Dominion Building, 602 E. Laburnum Avenue
$25 in advance, $45 at the door (must be 21 or over)


Grab your spandex, make sure your leather bustier still fits, and get back over to the Richmond International Raceway for VA Comicon! It’s a cosplay spectacular with events like “Pro Wrestling Today,” “What is ‘Paranormal’?”, and “Cosplay Etiquette.” I can’t even make stuff up that’s better than that, so I won’t try! Go find your kindred spirits, nerds. We all deserve our day in the sun.

Saturday, November 22nd – Sunday, November 23rd • see site for times
Richmond International Raceway Complex, Expo Hall, 600 E. Laburnum Avenue
$20 for each day
