The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 12:42 PM

+8 Richmond wins the right to serve as host for the World Road Cycling Championships in 2015. For one brief, spectacular moment, the Capital of the Confederacy becomes the Shining City of Spandex.

+3 The Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors gives the go-ahead on a deal that would allow Cloverleaf Mall to be demolished, making way for the biggest Kroger in Virginia. How big will it be? Shopping-cart mileage will be tax-deductible.

+4 The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts draws a sellout crowd to its first burlesque show, a titillating performance by the Richmond Institute of Burlesque, inspired by the “Fabergé Revealed” exhibit. But even Picasso showed more skin.

+5 The gay community and its friends and supporters turn out to the Kanawha Plaza for entertainment, food and networking during Virginia Pride’s PrideFest 2011. At the end of this rainbow was a leprechaun. A really fabulous leprechaun.

+2 VCU basketball coach Shaka Smart and his wife, Maya Payne Smart, celebrate the birth of their first child, a daughter. She’s already started dribbling like a star.
