Events This Week

Hey, tomorrow is Tuesday, June 7! Swing by the Byrd House Market at 980 Idlewood Ave in the Oregon Hill neighborhood. They're going to have all these yummy foods. Just go.

The BIG Show takes place on Wednesday, June 8, between 6 and 9 pm at Plant Zero. See and hear work created by Richmond's young artists during the ART180 spring 2011 season. Enjoy paintings, prints and drumming, as well as theatrical performances with complimentary refreshments. The evening is free, family-friendly and sure to inspire!

Thursday is a great night for happy hour at Joe's Inn. Oh-so conveniently (for me) located at 205 N Shields Ave, Joe's is offering $3 house wines and $2 tap beers/highballs between 3 and 6 pm.

Friday, June 10, Bio Ritmo and Ikebe Shakedown play The Camel. The show begins at 9 pm and tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

A little later Friday night, join DJ Moredecai and DJ Ant Boogz for "Friday Night Live" at The Republic where they'll be spinning hip-hop, funk and soul all night long.

It's time for the 12th Annual James River Regional Cleanup! This Saturday, June 11, join the Friends of The James River Park as we clean up approximately 70 miles along the river. There are 13 clean-up sites making this opportunity accessible to those of us in Richmond and beyond. The day begins at 9 am, concludes at 1 pm and includes a complimentary lunch for volunteers. Last year's clean-up involved over 1,000 volunteers yielding over 500 bags of trash and 300 bags of recyclables. Boaters and walkers are welcome; see the above link for all other details.

Time flies when you're the hilariously sexy ladies of the Richmond Varietease! It's been two years since they introduced us to their unique brand of burlesque and this Saturday, June 11, they're hosting a fabulous Two Year Anniversary Show at The Canal Club. The show begins at 9 pm, tickets are $10 and don't forget to leave the kids at home!
