The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 1:00 AM

+4 Cooks face off with concoctions of chicken, veggies and tomatoes during the Brunswick Stew Festival at the 17th Street Farmers' Market. There haven't been this many boiling cauldrons in one place since Christine O'Donnell's concession party. 

+7 Richmonders turn back their clocks an hour. This is normally when we'd rail against this city for being stuck in the past, but we're too giddy over the news of next summer's comeback tour with the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block. 

+6 The Richmond Forum and Virginia Union University are visited by the President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, also known as the Iron Lady of Africa. This confuses some attendees, who show up wearing their ComicCon-inspired Stark Industries Mark IV Armor and repulsors. 

-1 Known for its no-nonsense service and red-eye gravy, McLean's Restaurant moves down the street to 3205 W. Broad St. This is the biggest news to shake the diner world since Liberty Valance took the wagon wheel off its entrance. 

0 Merchants gear up for a renovation plan to turn Willow Lawn into an open-air mall. Because nothing says Christmas like maxing out your credit card on Old Navy hoodies while freezing your ass off.
