Richmond BizSense.com Reporting on Continental Coming to Manchester

A new restaurant for the Manchester area.

Published

on

The Continental Westhampton is a staple for diners on Grove. Eventually, those of us South of the river will have our very own Continental to call our own at 609 Hull Street. Continental brings to the table a diverse menu that you can check out here. I highly recommend the meatloaf.

From the full-article on Richmond BizSense.com:

Giavos said Continental Manchester will be a similar concept to his Continental Westhampton that’s been open for eight years along the Libbie-Grove corridor.

“We decided to take the ‘W’ in Continental Westhampton and flip it upside down for Manchester,” he said.

“It’ll be neighborhood-friendly, accessible, not too expensive. Hopefully it’ll be good for that neighborhood. There are so many young professionals over there, hopefully I can bring something that’s a needed commodity.”

According to the article no date is set for projected opening.

Critter of the Week

Critters of the Week

A wild critter we spotted in the RVA area and a critter up for adoption by SPCA or RACC.

Published

on

Where Spotted: Belle Isle
Common Name:  Double-crested Cormorant aka Mr. Submariner
Scientific Name: Phalacrocorax auritus
Average Length: 28–35 in
Average Wingspan: 45–48 in
Average Weight: 2.6–5.5 lb

Quick Facts

  • When swimming, the bird sits low in the water with its neck and head showing; from there it plunges into the deep to catch fish at depths of up to 25 feet.
  • It can stay submerged for over a minute.
  • After diving, it spends long periods standing with its wings outstretched to allow them to dry, since they are not fully waterproofed.
  • When their eggs hatch after about a month, the adult cormorants will shade the chicks from the sun using their wings.

Our City’s Roads or Any City for that Matter

Published

on

There is no local connection to this story just a neat website that lets you get an image of the streets of any city. Similar to the popular design by Studio Two Three but you can pick your Mom’s town. You can play with the colors and download an image as I did above or just grab screenshots after zooming in as I did below. there are some minor errors like a mystery road going to Belle Isle but overall it’s an interesting way to look at the city. I also checked out some fairly small cities I’m familiar with in other states and it did an excellent job on those as well.

I found out about this on this RVAreddit thread originally posted by u/57duck.

Andrei Kashcha @anvaka created the website. For the technology-minded of you out there it downloads roads from OpenStreetMap and renders them with WebGL. You can find the entire source code here. If you love his website you can buy him a coffee, but it’s not mandatory.
