VOL. 31  /  CRISP

The plethora of exciting things to do and adventures to be had continues this week. We've been digging April, and we're pumped to see what May brings next week - ideally more blooms and less pollen.

Let's go!



We’re just going to optimistically say that rooftop season has officially arrived. We’ve scouted the prospects for you, so all you have to do is pick your favorite and order a drink.

We’re partial to the Graduate’s Byrd House, which just opened this season. It now claims the title of highest rooftop bar in the city. Worth the wait! (P.S. Check out the rooftop yoga.)

Nearby, Quirk’s rooftop is just as stunning and intimate. Kabana is larger and a little bit more wild, but has killer views. And there’s always the Hof for a more casual vibe.




Homemade in

Jackson Ward

Salt & Forge is a welcome addition to the neighborhood in Jackson Ward. The menu at the newly-opened breakfast and lunch spot expertly couples made-from-scratch, yet innovative elements. Example: bread from Idle Hands Bread Company sandwiches turkey, brie, blackberry jam and crispy shallots, while the lentil soup is finished with fresh tomatoes and kale. The food is lovingly and promptly served in a stunner of a space with tons of natural light.

We’ve tried it for lunch, and we're dying to return for breakfast - mostly to hang with owner David Hahn, who's got the gracious host thing down.

Futures: Trevor

Noah Tickets

Trevor Noah was just named one of the TIME 100 Most Influential People this year - making his live show in Richmond a must-see.

His visit to the Altria Theater was announced way back in February, but lucky for you, we noticed there are still a few tickets left. Now’s the time to grab them - they won’t last much longer now with the bump of press from the Time honor.

Our plan: grab an early dinner down the street at Dinamo, and then follow up the show with a rooftop stop or two!


Saturday, May 5 / 7pm

Spring Green

We chose the color of our Rep. t-shirts carefully. An army green works with just about everything. And pairs well with florals. Groundbreaking.
