FALL FESTIVITIES

Fall … my favorite season in Richmond. Why? It means spicier beers (and the re-introduction of Gingerbread Stout), lots of layering and crisp weather.

With this seasonal shift comes many events – from food festivals to the big UCI Bike Race.

Here’s a list of everything not to miss (another great list here). As more events pop up, I’ll add it to this list (feel free to email me at grublikeagirl@live.com with suggestions, too) …
