The Score

Posted on Wed, Jun 24, 2009 at 4:00 AM

+7 Richmond families remember and celebrate dads during Father's Day with cards, ties and cookouts. Then the real dad's paradise: dozing off in front of the U.S. Open with no one else around. 

0 Mayor Jones' choice for chief administrative officer, Byron Marshall, spends the past week here for interviews and business leader meet and greets. But we're still not sure what part of the process involved him ducking into India.Arie's tour bus. 

+4 The Richmond Vegetarian Festival lures an estimated 5,000 people to Bryan Park to taste food, listen to music and learn about the lifestyle. That's a lot of good people and good vibes. By vibes, we mean gas.

-3 Following an online trail, Henrico police arrest five people in a prostitution sting at a West End hotel. Doesn't anyone just use Craigslist to buy and sell old StairMasters anymore? 

-2 The T-D recaps a study published by Food World showing that Ukrop's Super Markets has lost its No. 1 market share for the first time in 20-plus years to … drum roll, please … Food Lion. The culprit: alcohol. Because in this age of war and unemployment, a deli tray and awesome potato salad can only kill so much pain.
