VOL. 49  /  ENDLESS

We love that sweet spot at the tail end of summer when things are still slow and hot, but fall is a brilliant prospect ahead. Take this long weekend to savor the moment.

Labor Day plans and more coming your way... read on!

Ironclad

Coffee Roasters


Another delightful Richmond coffee shop to add to your hit list: Ironclad Coffee Roasters. When better to try than a lazy, long weekend?

This East Grace Street roastery offers specialty grade coffee and a homey atmosphere. The shop carries quite the variety of blends from its dark blend “House of Usher” to “Bare Knuckle” expresso, and everything in between.

Our current obsession though? The sweet potato ham biscuits made by local baker, Lark Baking Co., proudly served at Ironclad. Or do what we did, and order one of everything in the baked goods case. You know, to go with the coffee.

Tuckahoe Creek

Americana Festival


Haven’t made it out to Hardywood’s new West Creek taproom yet? The perfect opportunity is coming your way this Saturday.

Hardywood West Creek is hosting its first big music festival, the inaugural Tuckahoe Creek Americana Festival. Headliners include Charlottesville's own Hackensaw Boys, The Tillers and Richmond-native Dharma Bombs, plus others, all offering a folksy mix of bluegrass and American roots tunes. This outdoor festival will feature multiple stages, as well as craft vendors, bonfires, yard games and a killer line-up of food trucks, of course.

Tickets are $20 for general admission including parking, or $50 for VIP which includes access to a private serving area, catering and a merch package. Kiddos 12 and under get in free. Sounds like the perfect easy start to a long weekend!

Futures: Endless

Summer


One in 68 children in the United States has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. From early intervention to adult care, The Faison Center gives people with autism and related challenges the best opportunity to live rich and fulfilling lives.

On September 7, The Faison Center’s Junior Board will host its annual Endless Summer Party to benefit the center. Come clean in your best white duds to enjoy island treats, breezy cocktails, steel drums and lawn games. We have our eyes on the raffle to win a weeklong trip to Bali! Anything to extend the summer...

We love the idea of endless summer vibes and learning more to benefit an awesome Richmond cause.
