Second locations and new collaborations. It seems like North End Juice Co. has had a line out the door of its walk-up window the Museum District location first opened, so we’re not surprised to hear about the plans for the owner to open a second location this fall in Midlothian, complete with an expanded menu and room for indoor dining. In other #rvadine news, Richmond Magazine has the details for what’s next for the Vagabond space. Don’t be surprised if you see familiar faces from Mama J’s, Lady N’awlins and F.W. Sullivan’s the next time you visit along with a completely new menu focused on soul-food. While there are many changes on the way, the name will remain the same.
Bottom’s up. Good news for beer lovers in Shockoe Bottom, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is opening a brewbub at 1717 East Franklin Street. The space is still undergoing renovations and isn’t officially open quite yet, but the brewery broke in the new space this past Saturday with an open house event. Follow along on their Facebook page for hours and more information as things progress.
Price cuts in aisle five. The times, they are a changin’ at Whole Foods, now that Amazon has taken over ownership and everyone seems to be talking about the grocer’s new low prices on items like rotisserie chickens and avocados.
More than couches and bookshelves. If you’re looking for new cooking or kitchen products, it might be worth it to take a trip to Ikea. PopSugar has a list of items to buy for your kitchen on a budget, as well as a few to avoid. The most expensive item on the list is $35 and many are much less than that.
What to add to your calendar
Burgers and brews. The Veil Brewing Co. is hosting a Cobra Burger pop-up this Thursday, August 31 from 5 – 9 p.m. or until the goods sell out. Wondering what’s on a Cobra Burger?

If you can’t make this week’s pop-up, upcoming dates are for Thursday, September 14 and Thursday, September 28.
Popsicles and tunes, the stuff that dreams are made of. If the delicious pops and sandwiches weren’t enough to draw you to the King of Pops patio on the reg, maybe Patio Palooza! will inspire you to pay them a visit. The new event series kicks off Thursday, September 7 at 6 p.m. with free admission and live music. Just be sure to save room for dinner and dessert.
