The Score

A weekly rating of the city zeitgeist.

Posted on Tue, Nov 8, 2011 at 1:50 PM

0 After being kicked out of Kanawha Plaza for illegal overnight camping, participants in Occupy Richmond decide they’ll move to Monroe Park. If they get kicked out there, they have their eyes on Mayor Jones’ oceanfront condo in Palm Beach County.

 

+6 Theatre IV and Barksdale Theatre land a $2 million gift for the historic Empire Theatre from philanthropists Sara Belle and Neil November. Let’s just hope that when Broad Street becomes Broadway, there will be no revival of “Cats.”

  

+3 After a long delay, the city releases a consultants’ study of the Shockoe Bottom area. The key to revitalizing Shockoe is honoring its historic alcohol-based economy, the mayor declares, promising every Richmonder access to raspberry shooters.

 

+7 The Federal Emergency Management Agency changes its mind and grants disaster aid to Louisa County residents whose property was destroyed by the Aug. 23 earthquake. Richmonders who apply for aid must show proof of toppled lawn chairs.

 

+2 We turn back the clocks for the end of daylight saving time. As Richmond is wont to do, it focuses less on the hour gained and more on last season’s hour lost.
