UPDATE: Richmond Magazine is reporting Bev’s should reopen early next year.

ORIGINAL:

In some of the most concerning news I’ve read this morning RTD is reporting that last night a fire broke out at Bev’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop in Carytown. Waiting word on how much damage occurred, thankfully nobody was injured.

RTD:

Richmond fire marshals are investigating after a fire at a popular Carytown ice cream shop late Wednesday.

The fire broke out about 11:45 p.m. at Bev’s Homemade Ice Cream at 2911 W Cary St. Fire officials say the blaze started in the kitchen.

No one was injured.

The Thing is tonight and An American Werewolf in London will be howling on the 19th.  byrdtheatre.org/showtimes for all the listings.

The two Live Organ Benefits you see above on the 24th are not to be missed.

The anticipated Organ benefit event of the year! Michael Britt plays the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ to the silent film, Phantom of the Opera (1925) at 3pm and then Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1920) at 7pm.
Each of these magical performances help raise money to keep the original Mighty Wurlitzer going! She’s a beauty and we love hearing Bob Gulledge play her each week! Tickets are $20.

COVID-19 Vaccines for Children: Science Q&A

The Science Museum of Virginia is collaborating with local Virginia Department of Health districts for a question-and-answer session about children and the COVID-19 vaccine.

Published

on

What:
The Science Museum of Virginia is collaborating with local Virginia Department of Health districts for a question-and-answer session about children and the COVID-19 vaccine.

Who:
Neurobiologist and Science Museum Life Scientist Dr. Catherine Franssen and board-certified physician and Director of the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts Dr. Danny Avula will address questions submitted by community members that relate to the science behind the vaccine development, the way it works in the body, the impacts it will have on children in the future, and more.

This live event is free and open to the public.

When:
The webinar takes place Thursday, Oct. 14, from noon to 1 p.m.

Where:
Community members interested in joining the Zoom-based event must register on the Science Museum’s website. Registration will be open until 10:30 a.m. Oct. 14 and is available to the first 1,000 registrants.

Pre-registered attendees will be emailed the link to access the webinar at 11 a.m. on the day of the event. Attendees can submit questions for Dr. Avula and Dr. Franssen after they register and using the Q&A feature during the event.

There will be a Spanish-language translator at the event.

The program will be recorded and posted to the Science Museum’s YouTube channel so those unable to attend may access the content at a later date.

Why:
The Science Museum has always encouraged Virginians to question their world. With emergency use authorization for the COVID-19 vaccine for children just around the corner, the Science Museum recognizes that parents, caregivers, and guardians have questions about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine for their loved ones.

Both organizations want to ensure adults have the scientific information they need to feel comfortable getting their children inoculated against COVID-19 once authorization is granted, and are excited to collaborate on a project that advances public health in our community.

How:
This event is part of the Communities for Immunity initiative. Communities for Immunity is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information, visit www.communitiesforimmunity.org.
