VOL. 15   /  RENEWAL

This week, we wanted to share a few sources of inspiration to fuel you well into the new year - including our first Here.Happening of 2018!

Also, a thought-provoking word on the value in making habits over resolutions, written by Richmond's Justin Earley.

Welcome to 2018!


for Beginners

For our first Here.Happening of 2018, Belmont Butchery is hosting a private Braising for Beginners class just for us!

We'll learn how to braise a few cuts of meat, try the recipes, and wash it all down with a well-paired beverage. Braising looks impressive but is actually pretty simple; let this class inspire your next cozy dinner party this winter.

Tickets are $25; use password EatMeat. This is a small class, but we have a bigger event coming up in a few weeks…



Sunday, January 14 / 1-3pm



This Friday at 7:30am, Vic Wise and five men will set off from the Virginia War Memorial for Freedom Ruck. They will ruck (walk with weighted rucksacks) 100 miles in just 48 hours, all the way to Arlington National Cemetery, as a public display of thanks to the military. It's going to be brutally cold, heightening this already formidable challenge. And you thought you were cold...

Follow their progress on social media, cheer them on, and donate to The Navy SEAL Foundation.

Witnessing their commitment will make you wonder what you're really capable of. Answer: more.


January 5-7



Creative Mornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series in which various amazing Richmonders touch on topics like compassion, transparency, magic. Look to this event as an opportunity to jolt your day-to-day with a fresh perspective.

Next up: Erin Mahone will address Anxiety on January 19. Tickets are free and include coffee/breakfast, but be sure to reserve one promptly the Monday before each event.

If you can't attend, videos of the lectures are available online afterward. A few of our favorites come from Mickael Broth, Evrim Dogu, Katherine Wintsch and Tim O'Toole & Will Ritter.
