The Score

Posted on Mon, Dec 31, 2012 at 12:42 PM

+5 Richmonders ring in 2013 with alcohol-fueled revelry at bars across town. For us, this is also known as Monday.

+1 A five-year-old New Year's Day tradition continues at Pony Pasture, where Richmond.com reports on people who gather at 11 a.m. for a freezing dip into the James River. Despite the growth in crowd size there's always a shrinkage in participants.

+2 Proposed legislation rolls in for the next General Assembly session, with one bill requiring retail establishments to allow restroom use if a customer has a medical condition "that requires immediate access to a toilet facility." We'd hate to be the 7-Eleven clerk having to ask for proof.

0 In other legislation, Delegate Joe Morrissey proposes a 5-cent tax on certain plastic bags used by customers to carry goods out of grocery, convenience and drug stores. And if you're actually buying a package of plastic bags, there's some kind of rift in the time-space continuum, and we all get sucked into a black plastic hole.

+3 The creator of seven principles meets the city of seven hills, when Kwanzaa's inventor, Maulana Karenga, comes to town to help celebrate the seven-day holiday. Add in a day for Christmas and eight nights of Hanukkah, and it all comes out to way too many Red Lobster gift cards.
