RVA Happy Hour for Your Cheap Eating and Drinking Needs

Like a good Boy Scout it pays or in this case you’ll pay less if you’re prepared with Happy Hour information.

First up, this isn’t a paid advertisement and we haven’t done all the research to ensure accuracy. With that out of the way, the site RVA Happy Hour is a boon for those of us that like eating and drinking out but don’t like the damage it does on our wallet.

The site is straight forward, after hitting the Find a Happy Hour, you’ll have the ability to filter your search by day, time, neighborhood or category.  I did notice they’re missing Secret Sandwich Society which among other things has a $5 burger during happy hours. That is one of the better deals I’ve found in my bar travels.

What to know what is going on tonight? Let me present a partial screenshot.

It will interesting to see if the site creators will be able to keep up with bars and restaurants seemingly constant change.

Bakery to Rise Up in Manchester

There’s some work to be done on the location and they hope to open up in January.

Spotted on Instagram and Facebook is news of Wildcraft Focaccia Company picking a spot to set up shop in Manchester. They describe themselves as naturally leavened, garden-to-table, sourdough and focaccia bakery. I look forward to trying them out. They don’t state it but I’m pretty sure the address will be 1303 Hull Street.

Here’s what they said on FB about their location.

It’s finally official – I found a space. It’s taken way longer than I ever expected – I worked on several properties and had months-long negotiations three separate times. Then there was the huge chunk of time when I didn’t even look for properties during the initial covid months, but finally, after almost a year of looking, I’ve landed in Manchester! My plan as of now is getting the keys on October 1st and likely taking three months to work on the space (it needs some TLC and some layout changes) Then opening in early January. Thanks for hanging with me during my “photo only” phase and please continue to keep me company during the build-out process! I’m looking forward to seeing you in person in 2021!

Kickstarter-funded Ruby Scoops ice cream shop to open on Brookland Park Boulevard later this fall

“We’re trying to create memories, and we’re trying to create moments in your life that you will always remember that kind of stem from what we make,” Kamara said.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Rabia Kamara recalls drinking a sweet, sugary Colombian beverage as a 5-year-old in Silver Spring, Md. It wasn’t until she was at an international market over 25 years later that she came across the beverage again and fell in love with it anew.

Kamara wants to create similar memories for customers at her ice cream shop, Ruby Scoops Ice Cream and Sweets, which is in the works on Richmond’s Brookland Park Boulevard in North Side. There, Kamara plans to add a unique spin on ice cream flavors, with twists such as Peaches N’ Herb, Sweet Corn Basil and Lemon Honey Chamomile.

“We’re trying to create memories, and we’re trying to create moments in your life that you will always remember that kind of stem from what we make,” Kamara said.

From Richmond BizSense:

A local café-and-market chain has retreated from Scott’s Addition as it cuts costs amid the economic crisis caused by the pandemic.

Urban Farmhouse has shuttered its location at 3015 Norfolk St., capping off an almost six-year stint in the neighborhood. The homegrown brand is now down to two locations, one in Shockoe Slip and the other in Midlothian.

The chain, which had six shops in 2016, eliminated the 4,000-square-foot Scott’s Addition location as it seeks to come out on the other side of the coronavirus pandemic, owner Kathleen Richardson said.
