The Score

This Week: Lincoln Movie Trail, holiday music, Hardywood's gingerbread + more.

Posted on Tue, Nov 20, 2012 at 1:56 PM


+3 Virginia tourism officials launch the Lincoln Movie Trail, a self-guided tour and website mixing history with filming and dining locations of Steven Spielberg's movie. Sadly left out is the Joseph Gordon-Levitt Topless Bar Crawl Down Route 420.

+4 The Richmond Tattoo Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary, drawing the inked and their fans to a weekend at the convention center. One person conspicuously absent: that guy who got a Romney tattoo on his face.

-2 Holiday music floods local airwaves earlier this year — more than a week before Thanksgiving — with radio stations Big Oldies 107.3 and Lite 98 turning on their all-Christmas-music formats. Even the elves weren't ready.

+1 Hundreds of beer fans turn out to Hardywood Park Craft Brewery for the release of its award-winning Gingerbread Stout. Drink enough and your head feels like it got trampled by reindeer.

-1 Local unions mobilize to protest at a local Wal-Mart for starting Black Friday sales two hours earlier this year, complaining that it cuts deeper into workers' Thanksgiving time. In some families, this is considered a blessing.
