November 11, 2009

Virginia is getting its first 2-day comic convention in 25 years. VA Comic Con is coming to Richmond November 21-22. I thought we had some writers here from Richmond that would have told you about this sooner, but I’m still the only one writing here…



Any Hipsters out there with $300 Million?

November 10, 2009

I can hear Dennis Hopper screaming at us already… Turns out the brewery that makes Pabst and other cheap beer is being sold. Bank of America Merril Lynch is in charge of finding a buyer for the sale, which could cost the new owner $300 Million USD to purchase.

With the sudden increase in profits over the last couple years, selling the brand is a wise decision. That is if you’re into making money, but really, who isn’t?

Another Pabst Blue Ribbon post gives me an excuse to post this video too!

Time to find a new beer, PBR now popular

September 18, 2009

Sorry kids, your days of drinking PBR “cause it’s cheap” are over. Pabst Blue Ribbon has seen a rise in sales of 25% this year. I guess we can thank Hipsters for that.


Carytown Watermelon Festival!!

August 8, 2009

What originally started as one Carytown vendor giving out watermelon has now turned into a annual event, with a lot more watermelons. The Watermelon festival is in its 26th year and is one of Carytowns signature events with all of the stores moving merchandise onto the side walks; offering up super sales and watermelons. Not only that, but it’s also to include the musical stylings of The Ragdolls who play rock and roll covers from the 60’s to the present.

It’s going on this Sunday, 8/09/09, from 10am-6pm. Should be a lot of fun if you don’t have anything planned for tomorrow. I know I’m going, maybe I’ll see you there!!

Punk at Nara Sushi, July 22 Richmond, Va!

July 20, 2009

I just got a friendly invite to this show on Wednesday evening. If you are a fan of punk jams and have 5 bucks head on over to Nara Sushi on main street and give these bands a listen. There is a show before this, but this is supposedly going to start at 9, meaning that it will probably start at 9:45. But you can always get a few drinks and sushi rolls down your mouth before the music starts!

Best Friends Day 8

July 16, 2009

BFD_Pedro_FINAL-2Once a year every denizen of Richmond’s darkest pits crawls out on their bellies to experience the awe inspiring event that is Best Friends Day. The event unites the drunken hordes into one collective of partying machines. Some of the best stories I’ve heard have been of the shenanigans that ensued and each person has a unique tale to tell. Of all my years spent in Richmond I have not been able to attend Best Friends Day either due to work or school, till this year. This is finally my year to see what everyone has been raving about, better late than never.
