Science Museum of Virginia Arousing Excitement with Science on Tap: Mate Night

Get ready for Valentine’s Day with a bit of adult science.

What:
The Science Museum of Virginia is back with another virtual Science on Tap, this time dubbed Mate Night. Due to its proximity to Valentine’s Day, and just as the name suggests, the event will be full of STEaMy fun tied to attraction, mating, romance and more.

From the comfort of their own home – and while listening to the love songs of their choice – guests will enjoy the following stimulating programming:

  • The Museum’s resident lecturer of all things blush-worthy, Jim Blow, will present “This is How We Do It” about mating habits animals and humans have in common.
  • Neuroscientist Dr. Catherine Franssen will explore the five sense of attraction in “I Touch Myself.”
  • Museum educators will lead a rousing round of “Wicked Games” to test guests’ knowledge of horny animals. (horns, people … animals with horns!)
  • Romance is in the air, but what about the vacuum of space? Astronomer Justin Bartel will celebrate cosmic anniversaries with “Feels Like the First Time.”

Just because Science on Tap is on Zoom does not mean the rules change: as with the in-person events, the content is aimed at an adult audience and is not kid friendly.

When:
Wednesday, Feb. 10, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Who:
Curious-minded adults are invited to pop some bubbly, grab some oysters, put on heart-covered PJs and plug in a laptop as hosts digitally unzip all the irresistible science fun that will surely include plenty of innuendo.

Science on Tap: Mate Night is presented by WestRock.

How:
Guests should register on the Museum’s website before 7 p.m. on February 10. No matter when they register, guests will not be emailed the link to access the Zoom program until the night of the event. Guests should register per device access, not per person.

Museum staff are working hard to keep people entertained and enriched while socially distant. The Museum is not charging for Science on Tap events, but – as they don’t create themselves – guests are welcome to support the programming efforts by donating to the Science Museum of Virginia Foundation after registering.

Why:
The Museum hosted the first virtual Science on Tap in May 2020. Feedback from guests who have joined the digital events said they have enjoyed the show’s humorous and informative content, and want the Museum to continue offering more adults-only digital programs. The Museum is happy to oblige as providing a reminder about the importance of science in people’s lives has never been more vital, and continues to be paramount to the organization’s mission.

VCU Student Affairs Recommends Permanent Ban For Delta Chi Fraternity Related to Death of Student

The investigation into the death of Adam Oakes

It’s believed by preliminary reports that Adam Oakes died as the result of a hazing incident on the night of February 26th into the morning of the 27th. Adam was found unresponsive in an off-campus home.

Full statement below.

On Monday, May 3, VCU’s Division of Student Affairs initiated disciplinary proceedings against the Delta Chi Fraternity chapter at VCU with a recommendation that the Chapter be permanently removed from VCU if reported allegations result in findings that it is responsible for misconduct.

The process starts with a report and a recommendation to leaders of VCU’s Student Organization Conduct Committee. The report submitted by VCU’s Division of Student Affairs is based on multiple reports and allegations of violations of university policies and directives regarding chapter events, COVID-19 protocols, recruitment activities, alcohol and hazing on February 26 and 27 in the hours before the death of VCU student Adam Oakes.

The next steps include a review of the report by VCU’s Student Organization Conduct Committee and a determination if violations occurred and, if so, the appropriate sanctions. VCU expects the process to be complete this summer.

The Richmond Police Department investigation continues into Adam’s death. The ongoing police investigation, and any subsequent VCU Student Code of Conduct investigation, may identify additional information or violations of university policy. If so, the initiating report against Delta Chi, and recommendations, maybe updated accordingly

The iconic corner cafe’s sale was announced yesterday.

Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer is pleased to announce the sale of the former 3rd Street Diner property located at 218 East Main Street in the City of Richmond, Virginia.

Ya Hua Zheng & Jianwei Tang purchased the 3,928 square foot retail building from 3rd Street LLC for $550,000 and will operate as a new restaurant.

Reilly Marchant of Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer handled the sale negotiations on behalf of the seller.

I’ll confess to having never set foot inside the diner but I’ll be bummed to see the neon go away if they go down that path.

Richmond BizSense Reporting a Brewer’s Cafe Move and Juice Bar Plans

Lovers of Brewer’s Cafe don’t panic. They’re just moving a block or so over to Hull Street.

Richmond BizSense has the news of a move and a spinoff. Great to see Brewer’s growing.

Brewer is relocating his Brewer’s Cafe, which has operated since 2015 at the corner of Bainbridge and 12th streets, to a new space at 1012 Hull St.

The new cafe will be similar to the current concept, but will also feature a full bar and incorporate menu items from Brewer’s Waffles & Milkshakes, which permanently closed in February at 1309 and 1311 Hull St.

“We have had a need to expand Brewer’s Cafe for probably about two years now and we just thought this was the best opportunity to do so,” Brewer said, adding that the new Hull Street space is 3,300 square feet, an increase from 670 square feet on Bainbridge.

He’s also not backing away from Bainbridge. He plans to continue the lease on the original Brewer’s Cafe storefront after it relocates, and open a juice-bar concept built around the line of cold-pressed juices he launched last year. Brewer hasn’t settled on a name for the spin-off juice bar.
