The Fan and VCU’s premiere bicylcle shop, Bunnyhop Bike Shop, continues to provide bike services such as basic tune-ups, full inspections and even wheel building. Rider owned and operated, the colorful shop sits on Grace Street and has a selection of new and used bikes.

With bicycles being a popular source of transportation in the Richmond area, mechanics at Bunnyhop are constantly put to work with every thing from fixing tires and adjusting break calipers to learning more about the bicycle industry. In 2008, Bunnyhop mechanics attended the International Cycling Science Symposium.

Visit Bunnyhop on 918 West Grace Street.

Strawberry Street Cafe

Richmond’s popular Strawberry Street Cafe holds the Fan tradition of preparing great food since 1976. The cafe is so popular that it has something for every one, on almost every day with Tuesday nights being college night and couples night on Wednesdays.

The comfortable and unique cafe setting that every one in the Fan loves is one of the reasons customers return. The famous salad bar is an old-fashioned bath tub filled with fresh fruits, salads and vegetables.

Strawberry Street Cafe is also known for its wine, with all bottles priced under $25.

Stop by to see what all the talk is about.
