VOL. 75   /  CONNECTED

There’s no place like here. The degree to which Richmonders are connected reflects the strength and resiliency of our community. But community connection doesn’t just happen, it’s the result from having connections on multiple levels — starting with one’s connection to self. 

Sydney Lester, this week's guest editor, has rounded up three suggestions to help you connect with this place we call home. Sydney is the CEO of Chic Stripes, a personal styling company and the founder of Style Camp, a transformative 6-week guided virtual program to help women find, hone or reset their personal style. Take it away, Sydney! 

Connect

Silently

Sometimes all you need is a good book, comfy chair, strong drink, no talking and … a bunch of other people? Silent Reading Party, created by Sarah Choi, encourages you to create an intentional quiet space in your calendar for reading the old fashioned way and made more fun with a few twists, like eclectic drink menus ordered via paper and pencil and the presence of people who do not talk to each other ... at all. The demand for the Silent Reading Party has turned into a set-your-alarm type situation and now has enough silent readers for two groups in Richmond and one in Charlottesville. Reading has never been a more fun - or silent - way to connect. Follow @silentreadingpartyrva and @silentreadingpartycville on Instagram to find out about the date and location of the next Silent Reading Party.

Authentically


The Rebelle Community calls itself a club without a clubhouse and is made up of women who are seeking an alternative to the traditional networking and women's group experiences. From panels featuring women sharing the nitty gritty behind all the things they quit (six figure jobs, marriages), to creative workshops tuning into one’s physical body to make life decisions, to mixers (with both lots of bubbly and thoughtful nonalcoholic options), this is the place to connect authentically and build relationships.

Mindfully


This is not your ordinary meditation center. Brought to life as a collaboration between two women-owned businesses, Shockoe Slip Yoga and Fantastically Fit, the Mindfulness Bar is committed to “making silence sexy.” From a menu that lets you book a “shot” of meditation, “by the bottle” group workshops, or a “total detox” that brings on-site consulting + meditation to you, you’ll find that connecting mindfully doesn’t have to be taken so seriously. Want to ease in? Schedule a seasonal “On the Rocks,” a 45-minute walking meditation to the James River and back.

VOL. 70  /  PERKY

This week we’re feeling extra perky about our lineup. Members, get ready for a feel-good weekend from start to finish. Read on for some tasty ideas and fun Richmond perks along the way. 

Let’s go!  

Collaboration

Crawl


Don’t walk, crawl to your favorite watering hole in Scott’s Addition this weekend. The SABD Collaboration Crawl starts at noon on Saturday. Each participating alcohol producer will work with a friendly neighbor to make a beer recipe and then work together to create a cider, mead, or spirit. Some of the pairings include Ardent Craft Ales & Buskey Cider, Three Notch'd RVA Collab House & Reservoir Distillery, Väsen Brewing Co. & Blue Bee Cider, Isley Brewing Company & Blue Bee Cider, Black Heath Meadery & Bingo Beer Co., and Courthouse Creek Cider & Strangeways Brewing Co. The finished collaborations will be released at each location. Make sure to grab a stamp card at your first stop and then hop around the neighborhood to try all 11 releases. Once you've received four stamps, turn in your card at any location to be entered to win a $25 gift certificate at that location. 

Double Perk: Drop off your stamped Collab Crawl card at Blue Bee Cider and write Here.Weekly member next to your name. If your card is selected at Blue Bee for the $25 gift certificate drawing we’ll match it, giving you a chance to double your Blue Bee bucks! And after you’re finished with the boozy crawl, use the Lyft code HereCrawl19 for 25% off (up to $5) your ride home.

SABD Collaboration Crawl takes place Saturday, 12 p.m to 10 p.m. 

Richmond

Black Restaurant Experience


There’s still time to enjoy Richmond Black Restaurant Experience, a celebratory week dedicated to supporting RVA’s black-owned restaurants, food trucks, and catering companies. Now in its third year, Richmond Black Restaurant Experience was created to promote awareness of minority-owned businesses while showcasing the culinary talent Richmond has to offer. This year’s event boasts 29 local restaurants serving a variety of cuisines and surprise events. Some of the businesses participating include Soul Taco (pictured), Mama J’s (which was recently named as a James Beard award semi-finalist), Brewer’s Café, Croaker Spot, Vagabond, Urban Hang Suite, and more. 

On Friday we suggest checking out the live music, food trucks, beer, and wine at Studio Two Three as you browse the work of 30 African American visual artists at Art for the Soul. On Saturday hop on the UnlockingRVA Brunch Trolley at 11 a.m. to travel to three restaurants for brunch samples, specialty drinks, and a chance to get to know new friends along the way. Close out Richmond Black Restaurant Experience on Sunday at Stick a Fork in It, with small plates, tasting contests, cooking demonstrations, and music.

VOL. 63   /  WHEELS

Thanks so much to the overwhelmingly awesome and massive crowd that attended Good Tidings Market on Saturday. It was such a fun day!! If you didn't make it, there's still time to shop Someday, Loose Ends Embroidery, Anther and Strawberry Fields before year-end.

We'll be selling at The Broad Bazaar tonight from 6-9pm. Come shop our tees, onesies, and our much-demanded collaboration prints with photographer Kate Magee!!

See you there...

Rider

Woodworks


From shopping at Dear Neighbor and Someday, we've learned that we have an obsession with cutting boards. Who knew?

This weekend during Good Tidings Market, we came upon Rider Woodworks, a line of locally made cutting boards, prep stations, butcher blocks and charcuterie boards. Owner Ethan Rider adds flair to his boards with stripes of different woods and end-grain pieces. These would be stunning gifts for the guys or the gals in your life.

And we dig this super chill video of Ethan quality control testing a recent piece.

Adventure's

New Home


Right off the bat, we're entranced with this new shop's picture windows. The Wes-Anderson-goes-on-a-bike-ride vibes make us want to go inside!

This Saturday, you can. Journeyman's Adventure Co. is the new Shockoe Bottom destination shop offering bike gear for all scenarios, terrain and ages. As they put it, they're not just a bike store, but an adventure company! We want to learn more, so this Saturday we'll be heading to their launch party to see what's going on!

Tacky Light

Run


After visiting Journeyman's on Saturday, we're heading on another adventure, one of the holiday variety.

The CarMax Tacky Light Run combines a casual, untimed 6K with an overload of holiday festivity. The course winds through Midlothian's Walton Park neighborhood, known for its intense and amazing tacky lights. The family-friendly event is quite the scene. Be sure to dress up in your holiday tackiest, and enjoy rainbow cookies and hot cocoa.

It's going to be positively frigid, so skip parking conundrums by taking Lyft to and fro, using code TACKYLIGHTS for 25% off two rides.

Our question is: How long does it take these houses to rig their tacky lights? That's some commitment...
