VOL. 41  /  SUNBURN

Yesterday's mid-week holiday was just a teaser for all of the fun to be had this weekend. Props if you extended your vacation a couple days. For those of you facing re-entry this morning, these ideas will carry you to Saturday, back to break mode and those classic Americana vibes.

Who's already sunburned?

Don't

Look Back


This vibrant, spunky taco joint has been resurrected following a fire in its original home in Carytown, and is open now in Scott’s Addition. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have it back!

Go traditional or gringo when ordering from quite a variety of tacos and pair them with a jalapeño-orange marg. They also offer a killer half-price happy hour Monday-Friday 3-6pm. While you're there, pick up a game of pool or shuffleboard - Tuesdays you play free!

West

Side Story


Virginia Repertory Theatre is currently hosting a not-to-be-missed production of the classic, West Side Story. You’ll get all of the romantic Romeo-and-Juliet feels in this musical rendition of the two star-crossed lovers. Epic song and dance are guaranteed.

Bring a friend along for an afternoon show, or make a proper night out of it with dinner to start.
 

Vitals:

Through July 29

Pool

Time


The Fourth doubles as a celebration of all things summer, so we hope you're water-bound this weekend. In last week's volume, we broke down enjoying the best of the James River. Now, we're going poolside with a few tactics for your consideration.

First, did you know the city of Richmond maintains seven public pools as part of the parks system? Yes, you heard us right: free pool access. Check the schedule for open vs family vs adult swims.

Consider checking into the Graduate for a staycation and bask rooftop by their pool with a drink in hand.

And don't forget the classic: hit up your friends to tag along to their apartment or club pool!
