What’s Happenin’ Wednesday
- Richmond has seen a lot of love from The Washington Post in recent days! Check out this article on the exploding beer scene in Scott’s Addition and this one on the diverse restaurant offerings in RVA.
- I only recently learned about the Momfuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum, a museum dedicated to instant noodles and their creator and founder. The museum offers a number of exhibitions and attractions, including a tasting room. Anyone want to plan a trip to Japan?
- In the kitchen: Shout out to my coworker Lindsay for sharing this delicious recipe for sausage, kale and white bean soup. I made it this Sunday and it’s now one of my favorite fall recipes. I used local Sausage Craft sausage and it made the dish all the better. If you like leftovers, you’ll be happy to know it’s even better the next day.
- Planning a visit to Manhattan? If you’re a Moscow Mule fan, you’re in luck. At PHD Terrace, you can order a Moscow Mule cocktail that weighs over 10 pounds. It costs $185 and it’s perfectly shareable, as you probably imagined!
- Talley’s Meat and Three is celebrating kid’s appreciation month during the month of October. With every adult meal, they are offering a free little kid’s meal or $5 off a little adult meal.
- It isn’t too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Little House Green Grocery is now accepting pre-orders for local, pastured turkeys. Deposits are $35 and quantities are limited, so reserve one today.
- Picture perfect: The below sandwich made with rye bread with Idle Hands Bread Company on Tim Vidra’s Instagram feed had me drooling yesterday. Doesn’t it look so good?!
What to add to your calendar
- CURRENT Art Fair, a new contemporary art fair in Richmond, kicks off this Thursday, October 20 and runs through October 23. The fair is free and open to the public from Friday through Sunday, with a ticketed VIP preview taking place on Thursday. If you’re in the market for a new art, the event promises to be accessible for new and seasoned collectors alike.
- Ginger Juice is celebrating their first anniversary on Saturday, October 29 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. They will be offering free ginger shots to anyone who wishes them a happy anniversary, raffle prizes, and a special anniversary juice: chocolate almond milk.
- A pop up by the name of Sloppy Sandwiches? Count me in. Taking place on Sunday, October 30 from 7 p.m – 1:30 p.m. at Lucy’s Jackson Ward, the pop up will feature local chefs making you guessed it: sloppy sandwiches. Sounds like a good way to end the weekend to me.
- Save the date for Sunday, November 6 when Slow Food RVA will present Slow Fish 2016 at Ardent Craft Ales. From 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., attendees will be able to enjoy an oyster garden, chef demos, a shucking contest, educational events and much more.
