Here at Torx, we love good old Richmond, the city we get to live and work in every day. So we thought we’d share some of our favorite things Richmond has to offer.
Favorite food truck/cart:
Isley Brewing Co. In particular, the Choosy Mother, which is a peanut butter stout that looks dark but isn’t heavy and tastes like you’re drinking a peanut butter cup.
Festival of India. Lots of yummy food vendors, clothes and jewelry, and performances the whole weekend. I may or may not have performed a few times myself when I was younger….
Favorite place to go dancing on a Saturday night:
Favorite place for dogspotting:
The Dominion Riverrock Dog Jumping competition. So many adorable doggies jumping into a pool of water with other puppers watching!
Favorite place to order takeout:
Thai food is perfect for takeout and my favorite Thai place is Thai Top Ten.
Favorite place to people-watch:
Favorite pho spot:
Pho So 1. Not the big one on Broad Street, it’s gotta be the one one on Rigsby Rd that looks like someone’s house.
I’m more of a tea person, and chai specifically, so I like the chai tea latte at Shockoe Espresso.
Best place to mingle with hipsters:
Anywhere on or near VCU’s campus, because they’re EVERYWHERE!!
Best late-night snack spot:
Best place for an afternoon stroll:
The murals down at the flood wall in Shockoe Bottom are great to walk by after lunch.
Favorite venue for a show:
I like when bigger Broadway shows come to Richmond, like Wicked or Beauty and The Beast, so my favorite spot is the Altria Theater (it will forever be The Landmark to me!).
