The Score

Posted on Tue, Feb 11, 2014 at 11:33 AM

+3 Just in time for Valentine's Day, Goochland native and baseball star Justin Verlander makes headlines for appearing to get back together with his supermodel sweetheart, Kate Upton. I hate Justin Verlander.

+2 Richmond BizSense reports that Hollywood Cemetery has hired a marketing agency to promote available plots and cremation services at the 167-year-old Richmond landmark. Talks of a "try it before you buy it" campaign were quickly nixed.

+1 Former "Top Chef" competitor Mike Isabella announces that he's bringing a second version of his Washington restaurant Graffiato to town, at the site of Popkin Tavern. It's the first time he's been happy about packing his knives and going.

-4 The University of Richmond newspaper reports that campus police are warning against interacting with an alleged con artist named Eric Lannon, a story that spawns Eric Lannon tales across the Internet and a parody Twitter account. Naturally, Richmond will create some sort of food festival out of this.

+5 WRIR-FM 97.3 marks its anniversary with a Party for the Rest of Us, celebrating nine years of low-power, independent radio programming in Richmond. Yet more proof of the success you achieve when you ban Justin Bieber.
