This year, haunted houses are not the only place to go for a terrifyingly good time. Tommy’s Express Richmond will transform into a Tunnel of Terror at all of its Richmond locations.

Starting this weekend, the express car wash will provide scary, sudsy fun. Masked employees will hide in the dark corners of the wash that will be illuminated in black lighting and special effects. Once you are inside, there is no telling what will jump out at your car.

For $25, you can drive your car through, get Tommy’s best wash, and enjoy some haunting sights.

And to add even more excitement to the wash, Tommy’s will be awarding one winner with a six-month membership of unlimited washes. To enter, just wear your Halloween costume, take a video while going through the wash, upload it to Facebook, and tag Tommy’s Express Richmond. The wash will choose a winner after the weekend.

Tommy’s Express Haunted Car Wash will be taking place the last two weekends of the month, October 21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st, from 6 – 10 pm.

The Forest Hill Foraging and Plant Walk begins at 1 PM this Saturday.

Come out this weekend for a plant and foraging walk to get to know your leafy neighbors and feel more at home in both the city and the woods. Meeting place is at the Stone House.

Some things we will cover:

-Fall and Winter Edible Plants

-Common Herbs for Basic First Aid

-Basic Plant Parts and How They are Used in Identification

-Identifying Trees in Winter by Bark,Twigs, Buds and Leaf Scars

-Ethics, Mindsets and Next Steps in Forgaging

The walk will be led by Oliver, who has studied these topics for almost 10 years and done plant walks in multiple states. We will tie in information and stories from a wide range of fields including botany, farming, anthropology, history, bushcrafting and survival training. We will try to weave the threads together while avoiding some of the more nerdy, culty, or fear-based approaches to our relationship with nature and “survival.”

-Bring a notebook if you like but a full list of the plants, their uses and how they are identified will be provided after the class!

-There is a suggested donation of $10 but all are welcome.
