Virginia Hits Vaccination Goal Ahead of Schedule
Governor Northam announced today 70% of adults in Virginia have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, two weeks ahead of President Biden’s nationwide goal.
Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:
- Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
- Get sick from COVID-19
- Spread COVID-19 to others.
CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
Permit Points to Winery Coming to Westover Hills
Don’t whine about what’s going into old dry cleaners unless you don’t like wine.
Once again our eagle-eyed reader John Murden pointed out this bit of news to us. The former dry cleaner next to Outpost on Forest Hill Ave. has applied for a winery license. Work has been going at a steady pace since the plans for Rage RVA fell through. We’ll keep an ear out and update you with more information as it comes out.
Three Businesses Heading Into Red Cap Patisserie Spot
Where once stood a bakery will now stand vendors selling Filipino food, Italian food, and coffee.
Red Cap Patisserie was one of my favorite bakeries in town. Unfortunately, it hasn’t survived. The location at 719 N. Meadow instead is turning into Market on Meadow.
Spotted on Instagram (edited for format).
We are SO EXCITED to finally announce our small business collaboration, Market on Meadow.
We are founded by 3 local RVA market vendors who create their products from the ground up:
- Polpetti, with the most delicious Italian goods & creators of the amazing Polpetti Pockets.
- Auntie Ning’s, a Filipino-owned business spearheading quality Filipino food into the RVA scene with their lumpia, pancit, lechon, empanadas, and much more.
- Column 15, a Black & Filipino, women-owned coffee roastery that specializes in nitro cold brew and adds those really refreshing coffee ice spheres into your drink.
Give us a like or follow, and be among the first to be updated on our upcoming RVA Brick & Mortar, located in The Fan area of Richmond, 719 N Meadow Street, opening July 2021.
Filipino food truck Auntie Ning’s, coffee shop Column 15 and Polpetti Catering, which sells Italian fare, are going in together to launch Market on Meadow in the former Red Cap Patisserie at 719 N. Meadow St.
Combining retail sales, a shared kitchen and a sit-down dining area, the market also will feature a commissary kitchen program for other users.
Each of the three tenants will continue to operate as an independent brand. Each concept will have a separate menu and retail offerings, and will each facilitate its operations at the market with its own staff, Column 15 co-owner Victoria Goldsby said.
