+7 Dominion Riverrock draws tens of thousands of Richmonders to a festival of daredevil boulder climbers, bike flippers and adventure competitions. Heck, even the reggae singer was forced to show bravery.

-3 City Council members are surprised to learn that the budget for the Washington Redskins training camp has increased by $1.1 million, an increase of 10 percent from its original $10 million estimate. To be fair, this is the kind of accounting they're used to in D.C.

+4 Local beer lovers celebrate American Craft Beer Week with tastings, drink specials and tap explorations across town. In some circles, this is called Saturday.

-1 At its convention in Richmond, the Virginia Republican Party swings for the far right field, with a delegation of 8,000 choosing a highly conservative ticket for statewide office. Those popping sounds you hear are champagne bottles being opened at "The Daily Show."

+1 The Air Sex World Championships, a more adult version of air guitar, announces that it's making a stop again in Richmond, bringing the competition to Strange Matter on June 14. The next morning, get ready for the Air Walk of Shame Showdown.
