vol. 6 / an extra hour

vol. 6 / an extra hour



If you do anything this week, please vote on Tuesday, November 7. Learn about what’s on your ballot here.

Daylight saving time on November 5 affords us an extra hour before shortening our daylight for the season. Accordingly, this weekend in Richmond is absolutely action-packed. In a past newsletter, we gave you a head’s up on the Ledbury Quail Hunt this Saturday. 

Now, a few more fun ideas to fill out that extra hour!



What started as a modest beer has taken root as a major holiday tradition. Hardywood’s Gingerbread Stout releases Saturday, with seven variants to follow throughout the season! It’s that good. Everyone has a different favorite, so check out the full GBS lineup to see which appeals to you.

This weekend, Friday’s draft-only Christmas Pancakes sounds delicious, and Saturday is the main event: your first taste of the season’s Gingerbread Stout. Let the holidays officially begin! 

Many know the beer; few know the full story behind its creation. Food & Wine got the scoop. Thirsty yet?



Saturday, November 4 / 1-10pm



Fire, Flour & Fork (it rolls off the tongue eventually, promise) takes over Richmond’s restaurant scene this weekend, when visiting chefs partner with local talents for dinners, classes and food adventures galore. Of the many options, what to choose?

We’d consider skipping work for chef Joe Sparatta’s Friday pasta-making class. Saturday’s Class Pass offers another chance to load up on technique – and Gabrielle Hamilton of NYC’s Prune will keynote!

If you’d rather eat than cook, we’re food curious about Big Guns at Pasture, Carnaval Latino, Chaat It Up at Lehja, and Seed to Table at Sub Rosa.

Futures: For

The Ladies

We like to support people trying something new, whether it’s exploring our city or starting a new venture. In its first year, Rebelle Con is a new conference that supports women advancing their own ventures.

Over the course of a weekend, Rebelle Con will host conversations around Wellness, Money, Community and Creativity. You can opt for a quick fix via the workshops or fully immerse yourself hearing keynotes from Christian Siriano, Jessamyn Stanley and Tonya Rapley. We’re most intrigued by the Charging What You’re Worth workshop.

Ticket sales close November 5.
