July 12

The Highpoint, 3300 West Broad Street

Come hang with us at our RVAx member launch party! Let's build this community together. Look for an invitation & RSVP tomorrow. 

Here's the latest

Mean Bird, Belle Isle Shine, the Henna lady and MORE will be hanging out with us TOMORROW at the RVAx launch party!  We are SO EXCITED to bring everyone together in one space to celebrate the launch of our totally awesome community! Expect giveaways, light bites, delicious cocktails, music, and lots more. The Highpoint is located next to the brand new Courthouse Creek Cidery so feel free to hop over there after 8PM to check out their space and taste some cider! Registration for the event has closed but shoot us an email if you want to get on the list!

Get inside the MILO Simulator for free with the Richmond Police Department! MILO stands for Multiple Interactive Learning Objectives and the simulator is used to train new police officers in handling tense situations. RPD realized the experience would be valuable and insightful for the public so they opened it up, for free, to anyone interested in experiencing a day in the life of a Richmond police officer. I went inside the simulator last night and it was certainly an eye-opening experience! In one instance I attempted to shoot an armed aggressor in the knee during a bar fight, I missed and he proceeded to shoot and kill a civilian. In another scenario, the participant / "officer" failed to react quickly enough to a drunk person holding a large rock and was bludgeoned to death. If you're interested in learning more, call (804) 646-6117 and ask for Captain Timothy Wyatt.

Basic City Beer Co is taking over Twisted Ales in Manchester. Located in Waynesboro, Basic City will open a satellite taproom right here in Richmond offering their flagship beers, such as "The 6th Lord", along with some experimental brews. We are interested to see if this one will stick! If you recall, the space once held Blue Bee Cidery, then Twisted Ales, and now Basic City. You can be sure we'll be there soon to grab a flight and check it out!

There is Snow in Richmond! We're not talking about the white powdery stuff (although how refreshing would a quick snow be right now in the middle of July.... ahhhh so cool). But no, we're talking about another brand new ice cream cart dubbed Snow's Ice Cream and Crepery parked next Alamo BBQ! Serving milkshakes, ice cream, sundays, DOGGY SUNDAES, and sweet crepes! We are already dreaming about loading the dogs into the truck, driving up The Hill, grabbing some ice cream and then going to sit at Jefferson Park (which by the way has one of the best views in the city). Grab a friend and go for a cup!
