An earthquake (slightly) rattled the region and humidity rears its frizzy head.
Good morning, RVA! It’s 67 °F, and today looks a lot like yesterday: warm temperatures and a pretty good chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. The highs, which may even reach the 90s, will bring with them humidity–which may give us our first chance to complain about the humidity in 2014.
Did you feel it? Last night a 3.2 magnitude earthquake rattled the region. This quake was on the order of 1,000 times weaker than the 2011 quake (which I just mentioned in yesterday’s column), so don’t feel bad if you were in the shower and missed the whole thing.
Yesterday, Mayor Jones hired Norman D. Butts, the director of finance for the town of Leesburg, as the city’s deputy chief administrative officer for finance and administration; and Debra D. Gardner, the chief deputy director of the Virginia Department of Corrections, as the city’s deputy chief administrative officer for human services.
Tonight, Fall Line Fest hosts a happy hour at the Broadberry to celebrate being named one of the city’s best music festivals by Style Weekly.
This morning’s longread
A true longread, this extensive piece on RVA’s dining scene is a refreshingly transparent look into what it’s like to cover a local food beat.
So here we go, without further ado. My To Do list of all the things (which is probably 20 percent) happening in Richmond dining right now (some of which will still get its own coverage; all of which deserves it) that I’ve been meaning to write about and cover.
