Explore Treasures at the Poe Museum

Explore Treasures at the Poe Museum

 

The Poe Museum houses and displays the largest collection of Poe memorabilia in the world. The museum began in 1922, almost century ago, when a group of literary enthusiasts met in Poe’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia to create the state’s first monument to a writer. The Museum has enjoyed a history as unique as the author it honors.

Richmond Symphony Masterworks

I am looking forward to experiencing the powerful, delightful performances of the Richmond Symphony, home to some of the most talented musicians in the region.

Poor Boys

Excited to grab a gin and tonic and dance around with friends at Poor Boys.

Date Night at CineBistro

Date Night at CineBistro

 

One of the things we’re missing most is going out to movies. I can’t wait to enjoy a movie, dinner and a drink at CineBistro. In my opinion, the best place to see a movie in Richmond. They have super comfortable seats, good food and great service.

Bands and Food Trucks at Hardywood

Bands and Food Trucks at Hardywood

 

It becomes like a mini-reunion with friends I rarely see. On Summer nights, we grab food at whatever wonderful food trucks inhabit the parking lot, go in and listened to some amazing bands and catch up with old friends.

Roast Pork at Kuba Kuba

Roast Pork at Kuba Kuba

 

My favorite place to hit for breakfast is Kuba Kuba. I say “breakfast” but I always get the roasted pork no matter the time of day. But if I’m there during breakfast time, I always order their cafe con leche to get my day started.

Drinks at Amuse and the Sculpture Garden at VMFA

Drinks at Amuse and the Sculpture Garden at VMFA

 

What other restaurant can you have a delicious cocktail at the bar and then stroll right out the door onto a beautiful sculpture garden? When the weather is not cooperating? Stay indoors and tour the art of the VMFA.

Dinamo gnocchi bolognese

Dinamo gnocchi bolognese

 

Pasta heaven. The fluffy gnocchi resting in the most delicious bolognese is one of my favorite dishes in Richmond.

Canal Club

Excited to feel some bass and family vibes with the community at canal club once we ride this wave out.

7 Hills Scooter Club scooter rallies in the fall

7 Hills Scooter Club scooter rallies in the fall

 

During the first weekend of November, Richmond is overtaken by an army of Vespa’s for their annual city rally, Indian Summer. Long picturesque rides through the city, feats of skill in their obstacle course competitions, and general tomfoolery is had by all!

Fire Pit at Stone Brewing

Fire Pit at Stone Brewing

 

A trip to Stone is wonderful but sitting out at the fire pit makes it tops! I can’t wait to go back to their tasty brews and the beautiful atmosphere.

Folks Watching Monument Ave 10k

Folks Watching Monument Ave 10k

 

One of the best parts of the 10k for sure is the people who participate in simply viewing the race. Setting up coffee or donuts in the median for runners who may need a pick-me-up, holding signs of support, or even dressing up to give the runners a good laugh!

Walking Pipeline

Walking Pipeline

 

I can’t wait to enjoy watching the river roll and reading the graffiti as I walk across the pipeline once it opens back up.

Church Hill Ghost Tour

Church Hill Ghost Tour

 

Halloween is so much more fun when you can hear some fantastic ghost stories about your own city. The Church Hill Chillers Ghost Tour takes you all around the beautiful historic neighborhood retelling spooky stories and actual historical events that took place in RVA.

Hollywood Cemetery

Hollywood Cemetery

 

Hollywood Cemetery a beautiful historic cemetery. You do not need to be visiting a loved one there to find peace and tranquility in its beauty. The view of the James River is spectacular. Whether it’s for a tour, a picnic, or just a walk through the area, it is absolutely worth an afternoon of your time.

Blue Bee Cider

Blue Bee Cider

 

The cider is fantastic but the atmosphere is absolutely lovely! Their staff is very friendly and knowledgable. I recommend doing a flight so you can taste all of their delicious ciders!

Shopping In Carytown

Shopping In Carytown

 

It’s always such a pleasure to go shopping in Carytown (even if it’s just window shopping). So many uniques shops for clothing, gifts, and treats.

Walking with the undead at the Richmond Zombie Walk

Walking with the undead at the Richmond Zombie Walk

 

THE best annual tradition here in Richmond to kick off the Fall holiday season. Get dressed up as the undead to walk the streets of Carytown or grab a patio spot with a drink at one of the restaurants along the route. Either way, it’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon in October.

Pinball at The Circuit Arcade Bar!

Pinball at The Circuit Arcade Bar!

 

I’m sure there’s a beer (or 5) with my name on it as I squat on a pinball machine all night long! It’s either that or I visit my arcade nemesis, Dig Dug, for a few rounds. 😉

Maymont

Maymont

 

I know their beautiful outdoor spaces are currently open but I cannot wait to feed the farm animals and check out the otters at the Robins Nature Center.

Drinks and Friends at Fuzzy Cactus

Drinks and Friends at Fuzzy Cactus

 

Fuzzy has the best atmosphere and the most unique cocktails for a fun night with friends. I can’t wait to see more of their fantastic shows and eat a tofu biscuit!

Music at Scuffletown Park

Music at Scuffletown Park

 

Hanging out at Scuffletown Park is great and it’s made even better by the occasional acoustic set from local Richmond bands.

Classified Moto

Classified Moto

 

Wanna spend your social distancing on a one of a kind motorcycle? Hit up John Ryland at Classified Moto (you know, the one that built the Walking Dead bike). His motorcycles are a work of Art!

Nomad Studio Hair Salon

Nomad Studio Hair Salon

 

I know we are all suffering from horrible regrowth and unmanageable bangs. I cannot wait to get back to Sara Pecora at Nomad Studio and have her do some magic on my hair!

Superskee at Slingshot

Superskee at Slingshot

 

Skee ball is the only arcade game I ever really liked as a a kid. Now I can play Superskee at Slingshot and I feel like a kid again…who drinks beer from one of their many taps.

Mini-Golf at Hotel Greene

Mini-Golf at Hotel Greene

 

Mini-Golf at the very Wes Anderson-like Hotel Greene is so much fun. My friend and I share some fun cocktails before (and sometimes during) our game. The atmosphere is so quirky and cool. It’ll be one of my first visits when social distancing is over!

Walking Potterfield Bridge

Walking Potterfield Bridge

 

The view from the bridge is magical. The history, the sights, the sounds, the colors… give a perspective of Richmond that you don’t see anywhere else.

Richmond Metro Zoo

Richmond Metro Zoo

 

The Richmond Metro Zoo has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years. My favorite thing to do is throw the veggie pellets over to the orangutan who will indicate with his hand when he wants you to throw more.

CKO Kickboxing

CKO Kickboxing

 

Social distancing is making me soooo fat! I cannot wait to get back to me regular kickboxing classes at CKO for fitness and stress relief. The trainers are amazing and every workout allows you to work at your own level.

The Mill on MacArthur

The Mill on MacArthur

 

Burger night. Pasta night. Brunch. I’ll take ‘em all. With a side of mac n cheese. I miss everything about this place. The staff, the friendly vibe, the bacon bloody marys…everything!

Spaghetti A La Joe

Spaghetti A La Joe

 

What’s there to say? There is nothing like it! We always go to Joe’s Inn with the intention of just getting drinks after work. This inevitably leads to food. And despite everything on their menu being fantastic, somebody BETTER order Spaghetti a la Joe!

Drinks @ Penny Lane

Drinks @ Penny Lane

 

Penny Lane is our tradition when friends are in town for a visit. On nice nights, the patio is the perfect setting for a lovely reunion with friends. We’ve done this for so long, now previous get-togethers at Penny Lane are the topic of discussion of fond memories.

Live show @ The Broadberry

Live show @ The Broadberry

 

This place is laid back and the bands are killer! You can’t beat seeing a good show at an intimate venue at such low prices. I am so ready to see my friends at the next show!
