Ok, party people. It’s supposed to be AH-mazing this weekend so you best get your sweet bippies out to enjoy it before Richmond decides to be a jerk and give us one more cold snap before Spring. Here are 5 things to keep you and your aforementioned bippies busy while soaking up the sunshine.
Ok, party people. It’s supposed to be AH-mazing this weekend — we’re talking highs in the 60s and 70s — so you best get your sweet bippies out to enjoy it before Richmond decides to be a jerk and give us one more cold snap before Spring. Here are 5 things to keep you and your aforementioned bippies busy while soaking up the sunshine.
Full disclosure: I audibly gasped when I heard about this. That’s right, ladies! The ANTM casting crew is coming to RVA, and YOU have a chance to make the show — if you’re between the ages of 18 and 27 and 5’ 7” or taller, that is. My 29-year-old, 5-foot-3-inch self resents this deeply. Download PDFs of the eligibility requirements and the application right over here. And don’t forget to smize!
- Thursday, February 17 (11am to 6pm)
- The Shops at Willow Lawn (1601 Willow Lawn Drive)
I also audibly gasped when I heard about this one. Not because I was starstruck but because I have the appetite of a 17-year-old boy. Enjoy all-you-care-to-eat spaghetti with your choice of marinara or meat sauce, salad and a non-alcoholic beverage (coffee, tea or fountain soft drink). And then take a nap.
- Thursday, February 17 (5:30pm)
- Perly’s (111 E. Grace Street)

If the VMFA were a person, I think she (something so pretty is OBVIOUSLY a she) would be patting herself on the back right now. Talk about impressive: a 176-piece exhibit showcasing work from every period of Picasso’s 80-year career. And the VMFA is the only place on the East Coast where you can see the exhibit. Richmond: 1, The Rest of the East Coast: YOU LOSE.
