Welcome to the inaugural edition of Here!

We believe Richmond is a gem, an adventure, our personal playground. We are proud to live and to create here.

Every week, this newsletter will connect you to just a few of the best opportunities to explore our city. We’ll keep it brief, so you have more time to go and do. Let’s go!

Art Collecting

Made Easy

Consider CURRENT Art Fair the CliffsNotes to Richmond’s contemporary art scene. More than a dozen of the city’s best galleries and art spaces will show in one place so you can get a taste of many artists’ work at once.

This isn’t meant to be a polite spectator sport. Make things interesting: chat up an artist. This is the perfect place to start or add to your collection; the show's wide range of price points make it easy. Hit tonight’s preview party for a great show overview, or sit in on Saturday's collector panel to learn about patronage.

Breaking Down

the Capital Trail

The Virginia Capital Trail stretches 52 miles from Richmond to Williamsburg. If that’s a bit ambitious for you (we understand), check out Basket & Bike excursions this weekend. They’ll give you the bike, chic helmet, picnic lunch and mapped-out 14-mile route to Upper Shirley Vineyards. If you don’t want to drop the $125 fee, the model stands. Find a bike, hit the trail, stop to picnic – there’s plenty to explore!



The National's

Stacked Line-Up

The National is among our favorite music scenes in Richmond. We like the intimacy of the venue, approachable ticket prices and their absolutely killer line-up. Just this week, you can see: Two Door Cinema Club, NEEDTOBREATHE, Oh Wonder, more. Which night won’t we be there?!

Don’t miss the openers; we think Sigrid might steal the Oh Wonder show. Try Richmond’s new restaurant row on E Grace St for pre-show dinner. Match your show to any of these options: Pop’s Market, Secret Sandwich Society or Pasture.
