vol. 29 / soul food


This week we’re treating ourselves to a trio of little luxuries… some extra foliage, a delicious meal and stretching like we mean it. Don't forget; the Monument Avenue 10K is on Saturday!

Time to have some fun!

Get Your

Green Thumb On

We're not alone in our plant obsession. Plants add architectural interest to your living space, improve curb appeal - and they’re good for your soul.

Now’s the time to take a trip to a nursery and make some new leafy friends. Skip the big box store with their obvious selection and try these locals.

We’re into Great Big Greenhouse for their wondrous variety and extremely knowledgeable staff. For the best selection, call ahead to learn when their next shipment will arrive. We also like Sandy’s Plants, especially when picking up some stunners for your front yard or garden.





For All

Seeking to calm the mind? Try these yoga classes in unique settings, for kids of all ages. Namaste.

For the grown-ups / King of Pops is back at it, hosting free yoga sessions every Tuesday at 6:30pm until October. Finish your sweat session with a sweet treat – if only to spend a few more minutes basking in the peace of the outdoor location, the Carillon.

For the little ones / Every month, crazy-cool retailer Little Nomad and bareSOUL Yoga team up for what is potentially the world’s cutest workout: kid's yoga. The next time to roll out a mat is Saturday, April 21 at 10am.

Futures: Dinner

with the Chefs

CurEat, a restaurant-finding app, shares our mission of highlighting the few and good. The CurEat team is celebrating its Richmond launch by hosting a dinner with some of Richmond's best chefs -- including Brittany Anderson, Jason Alley and Sunny Baweja.

The dinner is at Brenner Pass, and the chefs themselves will be dishing up everything from BBQ to Indian fare to craft cocktails and wine from the Williamsburg Winery, all to the tunes of a Dixieland band (think washboards and spoons!).

And the best part of it all? You'll be eating for a cause. The dinner will benefit No Kid Hungry as the CurEat cycling team preps to ride in Chefs Cycle in Charlottesville this September.
