The Score

This Week: RVA Thanksgiving, Black Friday Camping, Duke Beats VCU + more.

Posted on Tue, Nov 27, 2012 at 4:40 PM


+5 Richmond sees an influx of out-of-town family members and former residents here to celebrate Thanksgiving. For those visitors who couldn't wait to wake up to the smell of the cookie factory near the Boulevard, eat some Bill's Barbecue and watch Gene Cox on Channel 12, it was a sad, sad holiday.

-1 Some enthusiastic shoppers go all-out out for Black Friday deals, including setting up campsites at the Best Buy in Short Pump. We generally like to stay at the W when doing our overnight shopping in Short Pump, but hey, that's just us.

+2 Electricity kicks the holidays into gear, with local houses firing up for the popular tacky light tours. It's that time of the year when Dominion Virginia Power's Redneck Revenue Division sees all of its hard work pay off.

0 At the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, the VCU men's basketball team beats Memphis but ultimately gets a reality check from Duke, which wins the tourney. On the upside, Shaka and Coach K get in some bro time down by the beach, sipping piña coladas from coconuts and discussing the pressures of being celebrities.

+1 A 12-foot Fraser fir arrives at Capitol Square, delivered by Mount Rogers Christmas Tree Farm in Whitetop for the Governor's Mansion. But before it gets decorated, it must undergo a trans-cambium ultrasound.
