Paint Party Fundraiser at Strangeways Brewing (Dabney Rd)
August 20th

Painting while drinking ensures that you’ll be more relaxed and creative and will create a masterpiece. The Mona Lisa was painted while DaVinci was blind stinking drunk or at least I think it happened that way. Added bonus this paint party is for a good cause.

Presented by Aura Management to benefit the National Kidney Foundation.
Come for the painting, stay for the party! Let out your inner artist at Strangeways Brewing with an instructed paint class from 2-4 to benefit a worthy cause. Admission includes all the painting supplies you will need. After you’ve created your masterpiece, stay and hang out with us for a night filled with live music and dancing. While you’re here, try out your luck with our fun raffles, including a wide variety of fantastic prizes donated by our local community!
Live out of town but still want to paint with us? We have a few options for you to participate virtually! We can send you the supplies you’ll need, or we can send you just the virtual link, and you can use the supplies you have at home.

Richmond Moon Market at Stone Brewing
August 20th

It’s a nice little market with unique items. Shop and drink it’s a thing to do on a Saturday.

The Richmond Moon Market hosts artists, healers and vendors of handmade crafts, art, jewelry, apparel, tarot readings, clothes, home goods, plants, crystals, metaphysical work, herbal healing, magic craft supplies, wild-crafted botanical products, vegan products, and more. We want to build inclusive community and support local makers.



Richmond did pretty well. Although, I’m disappointed in the judges’ lack of love for Triple Crossing. I’m not going to post the full list of winners because you need go to Richmond BizSense since they did the compiling.
