Ironclad Coffee Roasters in Scott’s Addition continues their LoveRVA Mornings series Thursday morning with “Loving Kids.” The roastery will donate 100% of proceeds of coffee and food sales from 8:00 – 11:00 AM.

Patrons will enjoy freshly roasted hot or cold-brewed coffee from Ironclad alongside delicious, hand-made treats from C&C’s Cinnamon Rolls and Idle Hands Bread Company. Suggested donations will be in place, but guests are encouraged to “LoveRVA” as generously as possible.

Purchases this month will directly impact kids in the Richmond area, specifically the students of Rohoma Sims, a third grade teacher at Overby-Sheppard Elementary School in Northside.

Hear from Sims herself about how the funds will be used:

“My name is Rohoma Sims. I am from the small town of South Boston, Virginia. I am a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where I had the honor of receiving my bachelor in Interdisciplinary Studies of Elementary Education and Master’s of Teaching.

I became a teacher for Richmond City Public School at Overby-Sheppard Elementary because it is the place I feel I am touching lives and making a difference. Everyday is an adventure and I enjoy taking it with my students each year.

Donations would be a blessing for my students. Most of my students struggle with purchasing the school supplies needed to have a successful year. I typically buy supplies myself which can become quite expensive. I also try to give my students real life hands on experiences which can be very expensive. Any donations given to us will go towards school supplies and materials for activities. Anything given will be appreciated and put to great use.

Thanks in advance!”

The event kicks off at 8:00 AM at Ironclad Coffee Roasters, located at 2904 W. Moore Street in Scott’s Addition.

This isn’t your typical mom’s mac & cheese. If your mom makes mac & cheese like this we would like to be adopted.

23rd & Main Kitchen and Taproom posted the following to Facebook.

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 (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.
