Blue Bones is a fantastic and eclectic vintage shop. Great selection, great prices, and great people. They are currently changing locations so everything is online but keep a lookout for the first opportunity to visit in person!
Ledbury, hit twice in recent months with vandalism as well as loss of sales due to the Stay at Home order, still holds strong as a vital member of the RVA community. They are currently selling masks as well as their well-tailored men’s shirts.

Explore Church Hill on a food tour!
I can’t wait to get to discover the food scene in Church Hill on a River City Food Tour!
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.
Excited to grab a gin and tonic and dance around with friends at Poor Boys.
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.
Play time at The Children’s Museum
My son and I are really looking forward to exploring the fun at The Richmond Children’s Museum and The Chesterfield Children’s Museum.
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
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
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
Pasta heaven. The fluffy gnocchi resting in the most delicious bolognese is one of my favorite dishes in Richmond.
Excited to feel some bass and family vibes with the community at canal club once we ride this wave out.
Hiding Out in Joe’s Inn
Receding into the darkness of a booth at Joe’s Inn.
Lazy afternoons at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
Flights, Bocce, food trucks, and dogs napping in the afternoon sun makes lazy days even lazier (aka perfecto).
Midnight Cult Films at The Byrd Theatre
Actually, anything happening at the Byrd. Plus, Saturday night Wurlitzer performances before the films. Ahh nostalgia.
Being fancy-schmancy at The Veil
Drinking the best IPAs ’round these parts in tall fancy glasses.
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!
The Patio at Ardent Craft Ales
I love sipping beers with my friends on the patio at Ardent as the day wears on into the evening.
Flying Squirrels Baseball at The Diamond
Richmond summers are not complete without Flying Squirrels baseball. Especially on the 4th of July – FIREWORKS!!!
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
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!
