Richmond Magazine announces nominees for this year’s Elbys

It’s time to celebrate the Richmond dining and drinking scene.

RVAHub Staff



For the past six years the keepers of the Foodie Flame gather in celebration of all things edible and drinkable at the Elbys. During this time awards of all sorts are passed out and the kudos pile high.

Every year there is a theme and this year is no exception. The theme this go around is “Six-Tease,” and the event will be held in the Altria Theater. In case you’re wondering, “Six-tease” translates to “vintage-glam dress is encouraged” and if you can pull some 20’s flapper style  burlesques into it, all the better.

Tickets go on sale this Monday, January 2nd. Keep an eye on Richmond Magazine if you want rub elbows with the cuisine elite.
