Here we go, here we go now…
1. French Food Festival
I mostly put this one up out of guilt. Funds from this event will go to benefit the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of NUNS who care for NEEDY ELDERLY. Basically I feared that God would strike me with a lightening bolt if I didn’t include it. And, I mean, who doesn’t love food? At a festival, no less? Saturday, April 18th, 11am to 7pm, 1503 Michaels Road, free to get in I’m sure, but to partake in the cuisine prepared by Chef Paul Elbling (formerly of La Petite France) will cost extra.
Who knew that the Chili Cook Off had been around that long? Not me. Chili Cook Off, you’re all grown up! Anyway, this event has gotten all the fixings for a good time: bands, professional and amateur chili makers, crowds of people at RIR trying to shake off cabin fever. Saturday, April 18, 11:30am to 7:30pm, Richmond International Raceway, 600 E. Laburnum Avenue, Advanced tickets are $20, $25 at the gate. Go here for more info.
Also known as the most entertainingly named event in Richmond. Put on by the Richmond Craft Mafia, the 4th Annual Spring Bada-Bing! will feature loads of SAWEET handmade goods from local and national craftsters. Plus they’re offering free SWAG bags to the first 250 customers. Hop to, you handmade goods groupies! Sunday, April 19th, 11am to 4pm, Planet Zero (2 E. 4th Street).
Ok, I have a thing (read: PALPABLE FEAR OF) with birds. So, naturally I watch this movie whenever it’s on, because I’m loony (ha HA! Loony! I didn’t even mean to do that!) It’s pretty hard to deny the fact that this is one excellent film, sure to be made more excellent by 1) mimosas and 2) the companionship of those who also recognize the film’s greatness. And I will pay 100 doll-hairs to the person who shows up to the movie wearing this. Sunday, April 19th, 11am, $5.50 general admission, $4.50 with your Criterion Club Card, booze costs extra.
5. World Music Festival
Our music writers here at RVANews are all about the world music. This will give you a chance to see what all the fuss is about. Sunday, April 19th, 3pm to 6pm, Camp Concert Hall/Greek Theater at the University of Richmond, FREE!
