When Continental Divide opened in the Fan it had a built-in following from folks that had enjoyed their Tex-Mex offerings in Charlottesville. The Richmond location has been open for four years at2501 W. Main Street.

The good news is that in addition to looking for a new spot the Continental Divide food truck will keep on rolling to local events and catering gigs.

The restaurant made their announcement yesterday on Facebook:

For four years we’ve loved serving our #FanDistrict neighborhood and the #RVACommunity. However, after service on September 1st, Continental Divide will be closing our doors. We will be looking for a new space to open in the future. Please join us over the next few weeks to enjoy some Red Hot Blues, Santa Fe Enchiladas, Tacos, Nachos and Margaritas. Happy Hours are extended until 9 Tuesday – Sunday, and we’ll have a couple more fundraisers and dance parties to close it all out. Check our facebook events page for details.

But all is not lost. Divide Ride Tacos will continue to serve up delicious tacos, nachos and quesadillas at local breweries, wineries and other locations around town. You can find more info and reserve Divide Ride for your event at www.eatdivide.com and track us on Facebook, Instagram and StreetFoodFinder.

Zephyr United recently announced that the Richmond region has been selected to host the 2021 Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference (BMTC). The conference will take place February 23-25, 2021 at the Omni Richmond Hotel in Richmond’s Shockoe Slip Historic District.

“Richmond is a fantastic location for the Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference,” said Allan Wright, President of Zephyr United. “It has an outstanding beer scene and is actively engaged in promoting the region as a beer tourism destination. We are excited to be heading to Richmond in 2021.”

The Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference (BMTC) provides information and education regarding the growing functions and importance of beer marketing, tourism, event planning, and branding. The BMTC is regularly attended by breweries, brewery guilds, destination management organizations, tour operators, marketing agencies and media from around the country. The schedule of events for 2021 will include summits, presentations, and lectures from leading beer industry figures, including a keynote talk from Stone Brewing Co-Founder Greg Koch.

Craft beer tourism is a growing trend in Virginia, with the state calling more than 200 breweries home. Virginia is also one of six states where craft beer has grown the most, up 36% according to C+R Research. The Richmond region is home to nearly forty breweries and in 2018 was named “The World’s Top Beer Destination” by VinePair. Richmond Region Tourism encourages visitors to use the Richmond Beer Trail as their guide when exploring the craft beer scene in the area. After getting their map stamped at five breweries, Richmond Beer Trail followers are given limited-edition Richmond Beer Trail gear.

“We are thrilled to host the Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference 2021,” said Jack Berry, President and CEO of Richmond Region Tourism. “We look forward to saying ‘Cheers’ to BMTC guests in March of 2021 when we’ll feature our fantastic craft beer scene and show them why Richmond was included in the New York Times52 Places to Go in 2020.’”

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tom Leonard’s Farmer’s Market, which has operated in western Henrico County since 2004, is getting bigger.

The 15,000-square-foot market will nearly double in size when the store expansion project is completed later this year, owner Tom Leonard said.

Construction should begin late in the spring.

The expansion will take over the tented area to the left of the store – where pumpkins and Christmas trees are typically sold.

The added space will enable the market, off Tom Leonard Drive, to expand and move its bakery and deli departments into the new space. The bakery will be able to make fresh-boiled bagels – “the way they do them in New York,” Leonard said.
