It’s Thursday y’all! You’ve almost survived the work week dealing with stressful deadlines and annoying coworkers eating your clearly labeled yogurt from the breakroom fridge. You’re one day away from opening up a frosty beverage and enjoy some fun events around town! To ease you into the weekend I’m sharing my top five events and happenings in RVA this weekend and into the following week:
Happy Monday Folks!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday and enjoyed the beautiful warm weather yesterday! My day was spent with family having brunch at our house and then strolling over to Monument Avenue for Easter on Parade. If you haven’t been before, contrary to the name, it’s not an actual parade in the traditional sense. There’s no marching band or floating snoopy balloon; instead the “parade” is made up of attendees in their Sunday best and crazy hats “parading” down Monument Avenue.
Last Saturday, on one of the most beautiful spring days in April, I enjoyed the afternoon with friends at the Swine and Brine Festival at Ardent Craft Ales. I have to say hands down it was one of the best festivals I’ve been to in Richmond! There were several of the top restaurants in RVA serving up every pork dish imaginable, as well as raw and fried oysters. Rappahannock Restaurant, Sabai, ZZQ, The Roosevelt, Saison, Amuse, and Northern Neck Oysters were all in attendance, along with Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches for dessert! Ardent craft beer was flowing from the beer truck and tap room, and there was even Blue Bee Cider and prosecco available. I love bubbly so this was a personal highlight.
