‘Summer of Swayze’ at the Byrd Theatre: A Fundraiser

"If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.” — Bodhi, Point Break. Since the dawn of mankind, disparate religions have contemplated the nature of heaven, the afterlife, and the...

Richmond Named No. 1 ‘America’s Best Town To Visit’

CNN just crowned Richmond as the No. 1 best town to visit in the U.S. this year. CNN travel editors explored the country, searching for cities full of things to do, loads of personality, and not typically swarming with tourists. Richmond topped the list for several...

Timmy Danger and Punks for Presents Wrestle for Charity

I found Timmy Danger lounging casually beside a fire pit, drinking a dark beer. It was a Friday afternoon in the dying days of summer, and the man whose last name is "Danger" was looking decidedly docile. He greeted me with a warm smile and a firm handshake wearing standard street clothes in the realm of a button down and jeans. I could not...

Best Of VA Missed Connections: November 17 – November 23

Welcome to another week of Missed Connections from around the Commonwealth, where I sometimes worry that we are getting entirely too fancy and losing touch with our roots. This week's bumper crop of wine tastings, Japanese restaurants, and the always-ritzy Starbucks definitely makes me a little nervous. But Richmond, you always come through,...

Best Of VA Missed Connections: November 10 – November 16

Welcome to another week of Missed Connections, where we find lurkers everywhere. At the stoplight, at the PTA meeting, at the junkyard, and as always, at the grocery store. We've even got married people creeping on also-married yoga instructors down the block. I'll bet yoga instructors and personal trainers get that kind of thing all the time....

Best Of VA Missed Connections: November 3 – November 9

Welcome to another week of Missed Connections, where we learn the thing we've always known about moving: it sucks to do it alone. In fact, it sucks so bad that you might resort to Craigslist and fake a romantic connection with someone who broke their arm just to see if their friend with the truck is still available.

Best Of VA Missed Connections: October 24 – November 1

Welcome to another week of Missed Connections, where we can all learn, once again, that Halloween brings out the freaks (or, at least, the freak inside each one of us). From plantation ghosts to sexy Velmas, the costumes take all forms, and everybody's into it. But it's not all Halloween hijinks this week. We've also got dogs orchestrating a...
