Deep Into Enemy Territory: Baltimore

Published on February 26, 2013 by in Road Trip

Located a mere 2 1/2 hours from our fair city lies our mortal enemy: Baltimore. A few points: 1. We’ve already covered how Baltimore stole Richmond native Poe just because he died there. (And I still have my suspicions, Baltimore!) 2. C. F. Sauer has been a Richmond based spice company since 1887. McCormick and

The Byrd Theatre: Richmond’s Grand Movie Palace

Published on February 25, 2013 by in RVA

Well, the Oscars are over.  Boy, wasn’t that a hoot?  Remember when that one lady did that one thing?  And can you believe that THAT guy won instead of that other guy for best person who did acting?  Man, that was an emotional roller coaster!  And did you see what she was wearing?  And I

Heron Project 2013: An Introduction to Pipeline

Published on February 1, 2013 by in Uncategorized

Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, brunch and mimosas, just about anything and wine… It’s always a pleasure to combine things that I love.  That’s what makes Pipeline Rapids such a special place for me.  It combines the James River with birds.  Birds, you say? For those of you who have not been, Pipeline Rapids is

A Tale of Two City Halls, Part Two: Downtown Abbey

Published on January 11, 2013 by in RVA

Sure, it doesn’t have a retinue of colorful servants who serve a rich upper-class trying to adjust to the changing times and society as the world shifts around them.  However, in a city named after the English homeland, in a state named after the Virgin Queen Elizabeth I, on the banks of King James’ River

A Tale of Two City Halls: Part One, Bringing in the New

Published on January 4, 2013 by in RVA

It was the best of times, It was the worst of times. It was Hardywood craft beer, It was a 40 of PBR. Welcome to 2013, everybody!  We survived a Mayan Apocalypse, a Fiscal Cliff, and another ad filled election season.  Bully on us!  With the changing of the calendar year comes a changing of

One of the Many Facets of Maymont

Published on December 21, 2012 by in RVA

The Capital of Virginia has many jewels in its crown.  Some of them, like the James River, are rough cut and remind us of the wild that existed before civilization popped up around it.  Some of them, like the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, are cultured and completely change appearance depending on the light.   I

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

Published on December 5, 2012 by in RVA

‘Tis the season, RVA!  I find from time to time that I have stuff to share but don’t have a whole story to write up.  So excuse me if, from time to time, the site resembles a Tumblr! You may have noticed that RVA has gotten itself into the seasonal mood and decked itself out.

A Bit Personal

Published on November 28, 2012 by in Personal

Hello, everyone! I refuse to be one of those blogs that just kind of disappears.  I know it’s been a bit since my last update, I’m going to try and be more consistent I swear! I wanted to make a post about something that is a bit more personal, and a bit less RVA.  If

RePOEsessing RVA

Published on November 7, 2012 by in RVA

“TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in

BRAINS!

Published on October 23, 2012 by in RVA

BRRRRRAAAAAAAIIIIIIINNNNNNNSSSSSSS!!!!!!! Seriously, though, I’m heading up to the mountains this week.  That means that I am going to miss one of my favorite RVA activities, the Carytown Zombie Walk.  Think of it as a parade of the undead, minus the actual biting.  It’s like living an episode of The Walking Dead, only without that annoying
