vol. 25 / croissants


It's our 25th newsletter ever! We're still shiny and new; we appreciate your early support. This is only the beginning. We have big plans... like our first guest editor taking over next week’s newsletter. Stay tuned.

Want to help us celebrate our milestone? Join in on the fun at our next Here.Happening -- keep reading!


Happy Hour

You’re invited to our next Here.Happening!

If you scored tickets to either of the sold-out Tiffany Haddish comedy shows tomorrow (as we recommended in December), congrats! Join us for a pre-show happy hour at Pop’s Market on Grace.

You may know Pop’s for their homemade English muffins (try immediately if you haven't), but their evening fare is just as delightful. Come for dinner or drinks -- whatever you decide, the Carpenter Theatre’s just a block away.

Even if you’re not headed to the show, come out anyway! You’ll have time to eat the dessert the show-goers have to skip and to hang with Patti Wright, who just won an Elby for best front-of-house personality.

French Film...

The largest French Film Festival in the country is Richmond’s very own, taking over The Byrd each spring. Prepare by watching the film trailers and decide if you want to pick up a pass or individual tickets.

This year’s line-up is solid. If we had to choose, our film selects would be:

- “La Danseuse” is perhaps the most anticipated of the lot.

- The trailer alone for “Monsieur & Madame Adelman” is riveting. Color us intrigued.

- If you're into bonkers, we've seen “Rock’n Roll” (because Marion Cotillard), and it's… well... it's totally nuts.

Bonus: the festival brings in directors, producers and actors for Q&A sessions after some of the films.


March 22-25

... & French


If you’re going to watch a French film, you’ll need to eat some French food. There are the standards in town, but we favor L’Opossum for their attentive service and unabashed creativity from dish to decor. Even the menu is a trip.

Our perfect meal starts with the French meeting the South in Les Escargots à La Ham Biscuit. Next: The Swank Bank, aka lobster mac & cheese in a “ridiculously rich” white truffle mornay sauce. Hungry yet? Save room for dessert – The Swashbuckling Bundt Pirate Drenched in Hot Buttered Rum is not to be missed.
