Beautfiul weather, new music venue, today is looking pretty good.
Good morning, RVA! It’s currently 42 °F. Today’s late-afternoon, upper-70s highs are perfectly timed for you and your coworkers to cut out of work early and enjoy a few drinks at one of Richmond’s many enpatioed restaurants. Here’s a list of ten spots that we really like.
Last night, the owner of The Camel announced that he’s helping to bring a second, larger music venue to The Fan. Called The Broadberry, the 350-ticket venue will hold acts that are too big for places like The Camel but too small for The National. It definitely fills a niche in the RVA music scene.
With the warm weather comes not only patios but food trucks! This week the city’s myriad food truck courts and conclaves begin to roll out and supply us with delicious tacos and pizzas and other handheld food options. Keep your eyes peeled for a full list of times and locations later this week.
The Washington Post reports that the Redskins have signed former Eagle DeSean Jackson to a three-year deal.
