Hop aboard the Hogwarts Express and head to Carytown Cupcakes where you can experience another year of wizarding wonder at Carytown Cupcakes. Cary Potter, a celebration of all things Harry Potter – and Halloween – is back for its fourth year with 10 new flavors and two weeks of mischief and magic.

The shop will be transformed into wizarding spots like Diagon Alley, favorite nooks and crannies from Hogwarts, and the dementor-infested Forbidden Forest.

The menu includes:

  • Butterbeer – Brown Sugar Cream Soda Cupcake, Topped With Buttered Caramel Buttercream And Drizzled Butterscotch Ganache

  • Sorting Hat – Chocolate Cupcake Filled With Colored Vanilla Buttercream Determines Your House And Topped With Chocolate Cream. Each sorting hat cupcake hides your house color within.

  • Pumpkin Pasties – Pumpkin Cupcake With Brown Sugar Buttercream And Pastry Pumpkin Garnishes

  • Dementor’s Kiss – Black Velvet Cupcake Topped With Cocoa Whipped Cream Icing And Hershey’s Chocolate Bar

  • Golden Snitch – Vegan Cinnamon Cupcake With A Golden Graham Crust, Topped With Buttery Cinnamon Buttercream, Dyed Gold

  • Polyjuice Potion – Gluten-Free Lime Zest Cupcakes Filled With Blackberry-Raspberry Compote And Topped With Whipped Cream Icing

  • Detention With Umbridge – Gluten-Free English Breakfast Tea Cake, With A Raspberry Filling, Topped With Pink Almond Buttercream And Pink Glitter/Sprinkles

  • Treacle Tart – Vanilla Cake With A Shortbread Cookie On The Bottom, Filled With Torched Honey Custard, And Decorated With Brown Sugar Buttercream To Look Like A Tart

  • Aunt Petunia’s Pudding – Vanilla Cream Cheese Cupcake With Strawberries In The Batter, Soaked In Strawberry Syrup, Topped With Whipped Cream, Silver Sprinkles And A Cherry

  • Dumbledore’s Favorite Sherbert Lemon – Vegan Lemon Zest Cupcake Filled With Tart Vegan Pastry Cream, Topped With Lemon Buttercream And Rolled In Sanding Sugar

Great news from our friends at Laura Lee’s (3410 Semmes Avenue).

Laura Lee’s is now open for dine-in and take-out daily from 5-10 PM:

We offer a mix of outdoor seating and tables adjacent to our open garage door at the front of the dining room. Our online reservations system does not differentiate between the two – we will do our best to offer your preferred table at arrival, but there are no guarantees. If you would like to specifically reserve either an indoor table or an outdoor table, please call us at (804)233-9672.

Please note that all guests are required to wear a mask or face covering.

Richmond BizSense.com has the news of another restaurant feeling the sting of Covid-19.

“We have decided to permanently close. With COVID, and giving birth to our second child in May, we just don’t feel comfortable with the daily risk, nor do we feel it responsible to put our staff at risk,” the Comstocks said in a message to BizSense via Facebook.

The Comstocks said they’re not sure what their next move might be. Both are chefs who had prior experience in the culinary scenes in Las Vegas and Richmond before opening The Naked Onion.
