vol. 67 / fresh start 🌱


To start the year, we’ve got our minds on all things balance. Below are three resources to support your goals for the mind, body and soul.

Speaking of fresh starts, we will be taking a hiatus for the month of January to set our own intentions. Don’t worry though; this issue and our archives are brimming with adventures to get you going in the New Year.

Niche Pilates Studio is changing its approach to making you break a sweat, shifting to all Pilates classes.

With more than 25 apparatus Pilates classes, their instructors lead courses using Pilates reformers and chairs for a full body workout. They offer private and semi-private classes to ensure that each of their client's goals are met. Check out special pricing for new clients and class packages.

Meanwhile, tried-and-true BOHO Studios is opening a new studio in Northside... but you won't be seeing any bikes at this new location! Branded as BOHO Fit, they are offering cardio and strength training courses. We cannot wait to try!





Over the last few years, Richmonder Justin Earley has been refining an approach for balance and purpose, amid the ever-increasing speed of life. His new book outlining his findings releases February 1. We find it a compelling root system for the New Year.

Entitled The Common Rule, Earley offers his reflection on maintaining a connected life by balancing technology and human interactions. Building habits of purpose? Definitely something we want to work on.




Brittany Mullins of Eating Bird Food was our OG guest editor; we're obviously fans. So naturally, we’re looking to her for inspiration on healthy eating in 2019.

Luckily for us, she’s hosting a free master class on meal prepping for the New Year. Join her online as she shares 7 easy steps for planning and prepping. The best part? She says that it will only take a few hours out of your weekend to be completely ready for a healthy week ahead!

On top of that, Brittany is launching a 6-week meal plan that includes weekly meal prep instructions, grocery shopping lists and 58 recipes.

Talk about a fresh start!

VOL. 66  /  RING

Haven't locked down your New Year's Eve plans yet? We're pumped about two bashes just out of town. If you’re keeping it close to home, some dinner reservations are still available at AlewifeBrenner Pass and Longoven.

We also snuck in a tip on a new burger hub for some end-of-year bingeing before we clean it up in the New Year...

Let’s ring it in!

The Grand


This time next year, the party in Richmond will be at Common House, the social club opening on Broad Street. But we don't want to wait that long, so we've decided to welcome 2019 with their epic New Year’s Eve bash, The Grand Cuckoo, at their Charlottesville location. We booked their four-course dinner to start (lobster and oysters!), before moving on to the party for dancing and bubbly!

We’ve already become members and recommend you do the same. The clubhouse is stunning, the membership intriguing, and the programming always compelling. If you join now as an out-of-town member, Common House will waive your initiation fee. Plus, being a member offers discounts at some of our favorite spots like The Quirk, Ledbury and Shockoe Atelier. And, as soon as Richmond opens, membership will give you access to both Houses. In!



December 31 / 8pm

Dover Hall


We love a good black tie party.

The grand ballroom and pub bar at Dover Hall are the perfect spaces for a New Year’s Eve party. Don your best attire, and enjoy music from The Dickens Band and food from chef Lee Hendrickson.

Worried about driving home from Manakin Sabot? Let the Allen law firm take care of you for up to $50 off your Lyft ride home within a 20-mile radius of Richmond*. The codes will be posted on their Facebook page the day of at 10pm and 12am.

*We did the math. Dover Hall is 19.3 miles away from the Fan. Safe riding!


December 31 / 8pm-1:30am

Billy Jack's


Switching gears just a bit…

The Jack Brown’s team has opened a Richmond location of its beloved Billy Jack’s Shack. We’re pumped, to say the least.

The menu offers everything from burgers to salads, and the new space seats 147 people. Be sure to check out the lower level of their two-story place; known as The Hideaway, it offers a more intimate and laid-back dining experience with a select drink and food menu. Be sure to order their sticky nuggs, and consider Billy Jack's for brunch starting in 2019.

This week, we wanted to give you the warm and fuzzies - but without the snow. So, a few ways to warm your heart, your cheeks and your belly.

'Tis the season!

The Giving


If you're like us, you wish you did more to give back. To help you with this, we try to identify worthy, turnkey opportunities so you can get right to doing good.

Just launched in the last week, The Giving Wall connects the urgent, unique needs of those living in poverty in Richmond to those who want to help. One might need a pair of boots, help fixing a car, or a boost to cover a small debt.

This is where you come in. You can easily browse those needs on The Giving Wall website, then select which you'd like to support. The Giving Wall staff vetts every request and ensures the delivery of your sponsored good or service.

Check the site out, and let's give this young organization some early momentum.



17th Street

Farmers Market

At this point in the month, we are straight market-ed out. So relax when we invite you to another market.

Long under construction, the 17th Street Farmers Market is gracing downtown once again. You won't be buying goods just yet, but why not go ice skating and scope the new scene out? Don't know what to do with the fam over the holidays? Get them out and moving on the ice, then hit a restaurant to fuel back up! We're excited to see this Farmers Market blossom this spring.



Baking Co.

Admittedly, we have a sweet tooth. But it's our job to follow all the bakeries in town and tell you when one is onto something, right? Listen up, we've got a good one.

We’ve had our eye on Lark Baking Co. for a while now and have tried all their tasty treats served at Ironclad Coffee.

But then we noticed something intriguing. Their Mechanicsville location - now serving breakfast (read: biscuits) - is repeatedly selling out. And their Christmas orders are fully booked. There's some serious demand for this scratch kitchen, and we are willing to get in line for it. Question is, when do we go? Breakfast? Friday date night for cake by the slice? Solid options...


Prints Are Flying!

Our limited collection of Kate Magee x Here prints are selling fast!

See which prints are left, and pick up your orders from our office Friday, December 21.
