I posted about the arts and crafts but now let’s talk about the food on Friday.
Join us in the parking lot of Woodland Heights Baptist Church (611 W. 31st St) for a special evening of Food Trucks, Arts & Crafts, and connecting with neighbors and friends. Food Trucks begin serving at 5:30, Woodland Heights (and elsewhere around Richmond) Artists in Residence will open for business at 6:00…and everything will wind down around 8:00. We have five trucks scheduled to appear, and we have 24 artists registered to participate—lots of activity at the corner of 31st and Stonewall.
Fusion takos, jerk chicken, Panamanian empanadas, cheesesteaks, coffees, and pastries.
Leather, jewelry, wood, glass, clay, paper, cloth, gourds, painting, photographs…even pet treats. Handmade and fair trade items, lots of exceptional art by lots of great local artists.

Scheduled food trucks for this Friday:
- Boka Tako Truck — Asian-Mexican-American fusion takos with French technique and seasonal menus.
- Dank Eats — Our focus is funky fresh fusion pitas like our jerk chicken shwarma with curry sweet potato fries, grilled pineapple, and cilantro lime aioli or our cheesesteak pita with wasabi aioli.
Happy Empanada— Serving gourmet empanadas and authentic Panamanian and Latin American cuisine.
Hollywood Cheesesteaks — Authentic Philadelphia style cheesesteaks served on fresh, local baked bread from Lucille’s Bakery. Richmond’s real cheesesteak!
… and for dessert…
- Espresso-A-Go-Go — Gourmet coffees, pastries, and more.
It promises to be a great night in Woodland Heights—eat a bit, talk a bit, shop a bit…and repeat. Hope to see you there.
Bookbinder’s Brings you Mac & Cheese on Another Level with BIGWIFE’S Pop-Up
This isn’t your typical mom’s mac & cheese. If your mom makes mac & cheese like this we would like to be adopted.
Old Original Bookbinder’s Seafood & Steakhouse has launched a new experimental pop-up concept focusing exclusively on macaroni and cheese. BIGWIFE’S Mac & Cheese is operating for delivery and carryout from the Bookbinder’s kitchen.
The inventive menu includes creative spins like Buffalo Mac with spicy chicken and gorgonzola cheese; Little Figgy Mac with goat cheese, ham and fig; Mac Lorraine with bacon, scallions, and gruyere; and Greek Wedding Mac with tomato, olive, artichokes, pepperoncini and feta. Any mac can be made gluten free.
Orders can be placed at https://www.bigwifesmac.com/ and via Grubhub. BIGWIFE’S is open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

23rd & Main Kitchen and Postbellum Closing for Winter
Two more restaurants are shutting their doors. They plan to reopen later in the year.
Over the holiday break two more restaurants announced their plans to close up until spring.
Postbellum made a similar statement also on Facebook although you stated they hope to open in two months.
Postbellum will be going on a two month vacation in order to to give our staff a much needed period of rest, and to prepare for our spring service. —We hope to see you this weekend, as we are extending our happy hour from 3:30 – 8PM & offering delicious brunch/dinner specials. Otherwise, we will see you when we return on March 1st! Stay safe, RVA
Helen’s Closed Until 2021
Hopefully, the Fan institution will be back sooner rather than later.
Helen’s (2527 W Main Street) announced on Facebook and Reddit that they’re going to close up until 2021. The re-open date will be determined once we’re through this mess of a pandemic. They’ve been closed to indoor dining since March and just went back to takeout only about 2 weeks ago. Hit up that Reddit thread for more details.
