Can you believe it? It’s already time for round two of What’s Happenin’ Wednesday. (If you missed last week’s introductory post on What’s Happenin’ Wednesday, feel free to catch up here.)
Here’s your weekly dose of What’s Happenin’ Wednesday:
- This past weekend I went to Early Mountain Vineyards for their annual oyster festival. Rappahannock Oyster Company was on site with oysters, crabcakes and their famous stuffin’ muffin and I’m already counting down the days until we can pay a visit to Merroir, one of my favorite spots to enjoy a beautiful day. Look out for an upcoming post recapping the Oyster Fest at Early Mountain.
- Wish you had a box of Virginia food products curated by a local chef? You’re in luck – thanks to The Fare Trade and Chef Jason Alley, you can order one here.
- The return of warm weather means Taylor and I are sprucing up our balcony. We made a fountain like this one two years ago and I have to say, it’s nice having a mini waterfall right outside our door. If you’re looking for an easy way to add some ambience to your outdoor space, you should try it!
- ICYMI: It’s cart season again in RVA, folks. This means that Christopher’s Runaway Gourmay is back on the streets of downtown Richmond. I’m telling you – one bite of their chicken salad or fettuccine pasta and everything is right in the world. It’s a steal with a full lunch coming in at under $6. (Don’t forget – Christopher’s is cash or check only.)
- This video of a baby pig dancing to Rihanna will make your day.
