The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 10:45 AM

+3 After 33 years at the anchor desk, NBC-12’s Gene Cox signs off, celebrating with a cookout and a long overseas vacation before returning to other projects with the station. In reality, it’s an elaborate cover while he gets cheap pec implants in Thailand.

-4 After police are forced to deal with a rowdy crowd at a First Fridays Art Walk, organizers announce that they’re reducing parking options and shifting the monthly events to earlier hours, between 5 and 9 p.m. Proving yet again that when it comes to creativity, Richmond has its limits.

+4 The website GayRVA.com throws a wild, colorful and sweaty Bollywood Bash to celebrate turning 2 years old. Which on the gay calendar is the year you’re expected to start shedding the baby fat.

-3 Sam Moore, the former owner of the gentlemen’s club Velvet, is sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison for failing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes. All we know is, someone’s throwing a hell of a party in 6 1/2 years, and we want an invite.

+2 We experience the final week before the official beginning of summer. Or as Richmonders prefer to call it, the Season of Warmer Aggression.
