These aren’t raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens, but here are a few of Chris’s favorite things…. about RVA….
Virginia Capital Trail. I’ve only ventured out 15 miles from Richmond, but I swear I will ride the entire 50+ miles one of these days.
Without a doubt, Jo-Jo’s Pizza. Waiting in line to place my order is like a Christmas morning when you’re a kid, getting ready to open some rad gifts from Santa.
I like the one where that nice man is swinging his tennis racket at the children.
I truly believe that even if you’re not a race fan, everyone should attend at least one Nascar event at Richmond Raceway. The crowd is often much more entertaining than the race itself.
Maymont in the spring is quite scenic, especially the Japanese garden with its stepping stones and waterfall.
Gelati Celesti… especially when they have banana AND coconut!
Tin Pan. I tend to favor music that isn’t hip with the kids, and Tin Pan is the perfect place for those “established and refined” artists and bands.
At the floodwall near Manchester Bridge. The perspective of the bridge, the RVA skyline, and a perfectly-timed sunset…. yep, that’s the place.
I haven’t been able to do this for a few years now…. But at the old Torx office, I loved watching numerous VCU students try (and fail) to parallel park on Main St.
As a lifelong fan of hair metal, the correct answer is Firehouse.
You know that smell when you drive by Sauer’s on Broad Street? That one.
