The Score

This Week: Folk Fest, Artsies, Halloween Scares + More.

Posted on Tue, Oct 16, 2012 at 5:27 PM


+9 Legendary performers Ralph Stanley, Rosanne Cash and Fred Wesley are among the musicians who draw an estimated 200,000 people to a sunny weekend at the annual Richmond Folk Festival. Excluded for yet another year is that lady who plays the dulcimer in Carytown.

+5 Richmond's version of the Tony Awards draws the performing arts community and local celebrities to a rollicking night of awards from theater critics, with "Spring Awakening" and "The Rocky Horror Show" emerging as big winners. Everyone's liver deserves a standing ovation.

-2 As Richmond.com reports, longtime Main Street watering hole and sports pub Mulligan's Bar and Grill closes for good, citing financial challenges and a strict landlord. But what did the wings ever do to deserve this? Won't someone think of the wings?

+3 Halloween season kicks into high gear with the Creepy Hollow Hayride, Ashland Berry Farm's Terror on the Farm and Kings Dominion's Halloween Haunt. But this year's scariest attraction turns out to be the VCU Police Ride-Along.

+1 Jumping into the two-man race for Richmond mayor, self-described City Council gadfly Silver Persinger announces his write-in campaign. Mayor Dwight Jones immediately issues a ban on pencils.
