New Year's Eve:


There are two schools of thought on New Year's Eve: going out or staying in. Revelers first!

We confess we find there's room on the Richmond scene for a new major bash - and maybe we know people working on it for 2019. But to ring in 2018, a few ideas:

- Buskey Cider's bash will be a solid night, capping off with dollar drinks.

- The Brenner Pass team definitely knows how to throw a party, so check out their no-reservations-needed DJ and drinks situation from 11pm-2am. (pictured)

- The Hof is resurrecting Richmond's (somewhat odd) "ball rise."

New Year's Eve:


The secret to a productive hibernation is all in the snacks. If you're keeping it close to home this year, whether with a homemade bash, a coursed dinner, or 10pm bedtime, stop by these local purveyors first to ensure you're well-stocked.

Scene / PJs and fire on the flatscreen
Supper / Stella's Market take-out or Bombolini pasta, sauce & bread

Scene / Four courses for a couple or two
Supper / Bon Air Provisions or Yellow Umbrella for main course delicacies

Scene / Push back the furniture and crank the music
Supper / Party platters from Wegman's or Mosaic and a Red Eye Cookie Co. delivery


She Ready

Comedian Tiffany Haddish is best known for her scene-stealing role in this year's raunchy and hilarious break-out movie Girls Trip. But if you've caught any of her many morning show or late night appearances, you know that this woman has personality in spades, leaving her hosts delightedly bewildered by her interviews.

And now we tell you that Haddish's #SheReady tour is coming to Richmond in March. 2018 has so much promise - why not add something to look forward to and snag some tickets to her show?

(We already bought ours… so drinks beforehand?)
