Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2016 at 2:25 PM

Openings: North Side will soon be home to Demi’s, a Mediterranean grill that will be situated across the street from owners Jimmy and Daniella Tsamouras’ other restaurant, Dot’s Back Inn.

Things are going well for Flyin’ Pig Backyard Grill and Asado’s owners. They plan to open Wood & Iron Gameday in the old Brew Gastropub space at the Shoppes at Bellgrade in Midlothian, Richmond BizSense reports.

Charm School, the much anticipated ice-cream store, is opening this week in the old Quirk Gallery spot. Right now, its hours are limited to Thursdays noon-9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays noon-11 p.m., and Sundays noon-9 p.m.

A teeny, tiny brewery will open in Hanover, the Times-Dispatch reports. Intermission Beer Co. will open next to a Goodyear Auto Service Center, near Virginia Center Commons, reports the Times-Dispatch.

Closings: Then there were four. The Urban Farmhouse Market & Café on the corner of Broad and Gilmer streets by VCU is now closed after a little over a year since opening. Another market and cafe is planned for Linden Row Inn, and it will open in January, the Times-Dispatch reports.

Congratulations! Open Table named L’Opossum as one of the country’s best 100 restaurants, while Proper Pie is one of America's legendary pie shops, according to USA Today.

Happenings: Perly’s Delicatessen and Restaurant will host the Richmond SPCA’s monthly supper club tonight. Pet-lovers are encouraged to make a reservation and dine, with 15 percent of the proceeds going to the nonprofit.

Have a tipple with your favorite Christmas guy at Quirk’s Boozy Santa Brunch on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Reservations are recommended.

There are a trio of beer/cider events happening this week. For more details, follow this link to the RVA Growler page.
