From Richmond BizSense:

Short Pump Town Center wants to allow people to walk around the mall with alcoholic beverages open and in hand.

The Henrico County mall recently filed a request with the Virginia ABC for one of the alcohol control agency’s commercial lifestyle center licenses, which would allow Short Pump’s visitors to consume alcoholic beverages in the mall’s common areas. The mall hopes to offer the perk no later than spring 2023.

“In short, it is similar to an ‘open container’ license and will allow visitors over the age of 21 to take their purchased alcoholic beverages (bought at one of our tenant restaurants) out with them while they shop,” said a spokeswoman for Brookfield Properties, the New York firm that co-owns the mall.

The company offers similar open-container programs at other properties in its portfolio.

A partnership between the Library of Virginia and a popular, longtime Carytown restaurant will bring a convenient breakfast and lunch option to the heart of downtown. Can Can Brasserie, a Parisian-style bistro and bakery, will open the Can Can Café in the Library’s lobby on Monday, September 19th, 2022.

“We are thrilled to help bring one of the city’s best-loved restaurants to downtown Richmond,” said Scott Dodson, executive director of the Library of Virginia Foundation. “Paul and John Kincaid and their team at Can Can are excellent partners. We cannot wait for our patrons and the downtown community to enjoy their amazing food in the Library as we head into our 200th anniversary year.”

Can Can Café will be open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with indoor and outdoor seating. Breakfast will include fresh-baked pastries and lunch will feature soup, salad and sandwiches, as well as to-go pastries, desserts and other items. Can Can’s signature coffee service will be available throughout the day.

“Since we began the difficult road of opening post-Covid, people have been asking us about our previous morning coffee service,” said Paul Kincaid, co-owner. “Countless people missed a beautiful location, quick coffee and pastries, and a chance to get out of the office and have a quick meeting. Opening Can Can Café in the Library of Virginia, we’re happy to be able to offer all of those things!”

Co-owner John Kincaid added, “With its spacious and beautiful interior, we’re excited to serve morning coffee, along with an assortment of sandwiches and salads for lunch, in a convenient location for so many folks in the downtown area.”

Limited free parking for Can Can Café is available on Level B1 of the Library’s parking garage accessed via entrances on 8th and 9th Streets.
