VOL. 46  /  FORTUNES

We hope you’ve been relaxing and taking full advantage of all things summertime. Take a brief break from the humidity to think forward and knock out some crucial fall planning.

Read below for three must-do commitments to begin shaping out your fall calendar!

Middleburg

Film Festival


So, little known fact is that we are film fiends… amateur film buffs, if you will. If you’re like us - or at least curious - we have a must-attend for you.

The Middleburg Film Festival returns to Northern VA this October. Think impressive line-up of films, beautiful countryside, and coursed farm-to-table dinners hosted at local vineyards (that means there will plenty of wine, too).

Ticket packages are now available and will sell out. Check out the Cinephile Pass or Saturday Date Night Special. Individual tickets will go on sale at the end of September when the full slate of films is revealed.

 

Vitals:

October 18-21

Fire, Flour

& Fork


Next up: Fire, Flour & Fork, a weekend for the food curious - one of our favorite happenings of the year.

You know the drill: 40 food and drink events brought to you by the best of the Richmond dining scene and beyond. Tickets go on sale August 15, and they move. If you want your first pick of chef dinners or signature events, then be ready to pounce. The line-up of tours, lunches, dinners, classes and more has not yet been released. Our best advice: sign up for the emails so you get the notifications and are ready to go!

Food for thought: Each ticketed Fire, Flour & Fork event benefits a different local non-profit each year. Now that’s something to feel good about.


Vitals:

November 1-4

All The

Running


How to make reparations for your overindulgences at Fire, Flour & Fork? Run it all out in the Anthem Richmond Marathon races the following weekend.

Good news: There are options for runners of all strides. Choose your challenge between the marathon, the half marathon and the 8K. Official training just started, so there’s still plenty of time to prep yourself for race day! Hit us up at hi@hereweekly.com for our half-marathon training schedule. (Wish us luck!)

Invite a friend to join you! The marathon's energy and sense of community is seriously infectious.

Race ya!

P.S. Registration prices increase October 1, so commit yourself early!
