The first time I met Colin was 2003, my freshman year, in the VCU dorms. We had a few mutual friends but had never really talked before, he came up and said "hey I got a job at Starbucks!" He knew I worked there at the time and it's funny now because we both look back at that moment as when we first met. Over the course of the past 6 years Colin has gotten to be a great friend of mine. He's truly a sincere, funny, all around great guy.
Going on every Wednesday at Mojo's
P.S. For those that don't know, they might have the best brunch menu item in the city. Get the Mexi Cali Benedict and try to disagree with me. - Tony
If you’ve been to the West End of Richmond, chances are you were either visiting your parents or partying with your friends that stayed home after high school.
Not to generalize (well, ok, to generalize completely), but writers are weird characters. Not only do the compulsive manufacturers of written word harbor such standard proclivities as reclusiveness, sociopathy, indulgence in booze and experimental drug use, and general hedonism, but they universally suffer from the delusion that anybody wants to know what they have to say. Since we here at RVA suffer from that delusion as well, we’ve decided to enable the great literary tradition of self-injurious lifestyle and self-deprecation, and present you, dear readership, with a new regular series showcasing the wares of Richmond’s finest wordsmiths. Enjoy! - RVA
Please help me find a home for this beautiful, sweet, loving puppy.

You've probably seen the To The Bottom And Back (2BNB) bus around town. It's kind of hard to miss a school bus that's been painted green and black and is often full of tipsy Richmonders.

My friend Ann brought this to my attention. She's a dedicated stargazer, utterly fascinated with the universe that surrounds us as we hurdle through space on this tiny speck of rock and water.
It's that time of year again, RVA Magazine's HALLOWEEK is here. What is it? It is our week of spotlighted Halloween festivities and the most fun you'll have all year.
Blake Midgette is one head (the loud one) of the multi-headed comedy beast known as Super Friends Camp. If you’ve seen him perform around Richmond you know that he literally puts his blood, sweat and tears into every performance. You also know the strong urge for a shower following his filthy performance. I sat down with Blake to try and figure out how he discovered comedy as a way to spread his special love.
