You know how you know it’s really spring? There’s another great edition of Richmond Restaurant week. This year it will run from April 21st to the 27th. As always, the lovely restaurants of RVA will be offering a 3-course prix fixe menu for $25.14 (with some of the proceeds helping the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels). See a full list of the participating restaurants HERE. Go for a perfect week and hit 7 places!
This weekend marks another St. Patty’s Day celebration in good ole RVA. You’ll need to note some changes on where, when, and how to get that glorious green beer.
First off, Shamrock the Block is now being held on Boulevard (between Movieland and Broad St.) from 11am-5pm on Saturday, March 15th. There will be street parking in Scott’s Addition and free parking at the Diamond from 2:15-6pm. For more details on the beverage, food, and band lineup go HERE.
If you’re a creature of habit and feel the need to tie one on in Bottom as in the glory days of yore, you can enjoy the likes of Shockoe Fest 2014. That’s right. The bars and restaurants of the Bottom and the Slip have banded together to bring you their own St. Patty’s themed celebration. There will be plenty of food, beer, music, and family friendly activities to experience around the 17th St. Farmer’s Market area this Saturday, March 15th. For more info on the bands and additional events being put on by nearby restaurants click HERE.
Enjoy yourselves and as always, stay safe.

Oh you guys…just in time for real fall weather. Postbellum is now open daily from 3:30pm-2am. Complete with one of RVA’s only ROOFTOP DECKS. Here’s what Richmond.com has to say. The highlights are that there is a ROOFTOP DECK and that Jen Mindell is the chef (from the Rooster Cart and briefly Avalon). See you there!
Avalon (RIP) has been renovated and is now reopen as Social 52. You’ll find there Happy Hour information in the appropriate section on the site. New additions include a more modern/casual, open pub atmosphere along with DRAFT BEER (6 local craft taps)!! Not only is there now DRAFT BEER, but they’ve upped their selection to a menu containing nearly 70 beers. Go check the place out. It’s cozy in there.
Alright, just made a few updates for the cafes Roxy and Strawberry St. Onto more pressing matters, who’s got new football specials for this upcoming season?!? It was a section we added to the site last year that we’d like to edit and have current for this year. Contact us if you are a bar/restaurant, work for a bar/restaurant, or know of a bar/restaurant’s specials. THANKS!
