The Weekend {list}

This weekend marks the beginning of the holiday season and there are plenty of ways to start celebrating.

Today kicks off the first day of Richmond Beer Week! There are literally dozens of beer specials, tasting, and events to get your fill of this fine fermented craft. Check out the Beer Week event page for a complete list of events around town that will be happening all the way through next weekend!

Once you get your beer tasting schedule in order, head over to Broad Street for November's First Fridays. This will probably be one of the last First Fridays events that doesn't require 12 jackets, 4 scarves and 3 pairs of mittens to stay warm, so enjoy it!

After the Art Walk, The Camel will be hosting some indie pop goodness to help you dance the warmth back in. Black Girls will be playing along with Winston Cup 1981 (Charlottesville) and Tiny Victories (NYC) starting at 9 pm. $5 to get in the door.

On Saturday, Gallery5 will be hosting the Richmond Burlesque Revue featuring local favorites and some rising stars of the burlesque scene. This show will be a sampling of the best talent in town from classic to nouveau acts. Doors open at 8 pm and the show starts at 9 pm, $10 to get in the door.

Later, get your groove on at Balliceaux with DJ Mixie and Sister Goldenhaze. There will be vinyl spinnin' featuring soul, funk, reggae, psychedelic rock and 80s dance jams. Dancin' times are free and start at 10:30 pm.

On Sunday, make your way to Oregon Hill for the first of many local markets this holiday season. The Fancy Flea Market will be held at the Fine Food Market every Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm, starting this weekend. Start your holiday shopping off right by buying local and handmade! The market will feature oddities, collectibles, crafts, vintage, clothing, antiques, furniture and more. They are also looking to add more vendors if you have something interesting to sell!

Happy November folks!
