Bring your pooch or borrow a pooch for a smooch this Wednesday.

The old Peanuts comic strips had a running gag where that lovable beagle scamp Snoopy would surprise grumpy Lucy with a slobbery kiss. You can recreate this moment or perhaps something more clever while supporting the SPCA this Wednesday.

Richmond SPCA:

On Wednesday, February 13, bring your pup to smooch for a photo or kiss one of ours!

Please bring a suggested donation of $10 to support the hundreds of homeless animals who are in our care each day, and Group Booths will snap a photo of you kissing your dog – or one of ours! New this year – you’ll get to take home a souvenir photo of your pooch smooch!

Cash, credit cards and checks in any amount will be accepted at the kissing booth in our lobby.

Espresso A Go Go Catering will be on site with tasty coffee, hot chocolate and treats for purchase!

Can’t make it to the Richmond SPCA on February 13? You can still donate a dog kiss at www.richmondspca.org/dogkisses.

From Richmond BizSense:

In their second such deal in as many years, a local real estate firm has picked up a Tennessee-based builder’s latest apartment development in the Richmond market.

Bristol Development Group sold its 301-unit Canopy at Ginter Park apartments for $83.75 million to Capital Square, the Innsbrook-based firm that just over a year ago bought Bristol’s 2000 West Creek apartments in Goochland County.

The Canopy sale closed Dec. 30, with Colliers’ Mid-Atlantic Multifamily Advisory Group brokering the deal. The sale price amounts to $278,239 per door, and represents a nearly $29 million windfall for Bristol, which finished the complex last spring at a cost of $55 million.

The latest city assessment valued the 15-acre property, at Brook Road and Westwood Avenue in Richmond’s Northside, at $45.6 million.

From Richmond BizSense:

Jonathan Highfield has kneaded dough for about 20 years, both in the employment of and instruction of others. This year, he’s baking a venture entirely of his own creation.

He recently signed a lease on 5411 Lakeside Ave., where he plans to open a production facility for his Up All Night Bakery by March.

Up All Night was launched as a part-time gig in late 2019, making croissants, breads, cookies and other baked goods that are sold at farmers markets and to a few wholesale customers around town.

Highfield currently bakes in the kitchen of the Early Bird Biscuit Co.’s Bellevue Avenue location during the business’s off-hours. He said he decided to move Up All Night elsewhere because he had outgrown the Early Bird space.
