Buskey Cider celebrating #804Day with small batch ciders, tasty sliders, and more

Enjoy limited release ciders, enjoy sliders from Boulevard Burger & Brew, and support HandsOn Greater Richmond.

Buskey Cider in Scott’s Addition will celebrate “#804Day” (that’s August 4th–get it?) tomorrow with a whole host of events throughout the evening.

In addition to the cidery’s selection of ciders, nearby Boulevard Burger and Brew will be on site selling farm-raised beef and vegan sliders. Ellwood Thompson’s will also be collaborating with Buskey to create limited release “Randall’d” ciders through the use of their local produce to be served in the tasting room.

Buskey, which opened just three months ago, has wasted no time getting involved in the community, having partnered with several non-profits since its inception, most recently Building A Better RPS, which serves to better Richmond Public Schools.

Tomorrow, HandsOn Greater Richmond will receive 10% of cider sales to support their mission of engaging individuals, families, teams, and corporate groups in volunteer opportunities across the Richmond region. The organization will be on-site to demonstrate ways to get connected to the city.

In addition, MOMsVA Dog Rescue will have a puppy kissing booth, and King of Pops will be slinging their gourmet popsicles all evening.

“We love calling RVA home, and want to celebrate 804 Day on August 4th, aka 8-04,” says Will Correll, Busey’s founder and CEO. “How could you better celebrate living in such an awesome place than by inviting non-profits, musicians, restaurants, and other RVA businesses to come to our cider to celebrate 804 Day with us?”

The fun kicks of at 5:00 PM at Buskey Cider, located at 2910 W. Leigh Street in Scott’s Addition.

PlanRVA will host PlanRVA Day on June 1 from 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. at its new office at 424 Hull St. Rd. in the Manchester neighborhood. The event will focus on the topic of placemaking, the process of creating quality inclusive places where people want to live, work and play. Sessions will explore various aspects of inclusion and public engagement, with a focus on community connection through regional trails, public art and the environment.

The day will conclude with a film screening of the documentary “A River Called Home” with filmmaker Jess Wiegandt from 6-7:30 p.m. The film focuses on the journey of four women who launch at the headwaters of the James River and paddle to the Chesapeake Bay over three weeks, while conducting a water quality study.

“PlanRVA is where the region comes together to look ahead,” said Martha Shickle, PlanRVA’s Executive Director. “Regional collaboration and cooperation happens every day in Central Virginia. PlanRVA Day is an opportunity to celebrate the progress we’re making together to support quality of life and growth in the region. We hope you’ll join us for this exciting event.”

Attendees can tour PlanRVA’s office space and connect with staff and community partners throughout the day.

Sessions are free, but registration is required. People can sign up for single sessions or for the entire day.
