The Score

This Week: Virginia Dairy Month, RVA millennials, Baseball Bat Beer + More.

Posted on Tue, May 28, 2013 at 3:30 PM


-4 Virginia Republicans' new candidate for lieutenant governor, E.W. Jackson, makes headlines for his controversial comments on gays, the Ku Klux Klan and Democrats' "Antichrist" agenda. Just wait till he's asked about the Boy Scouts.

+2 With egg month barely behind us, Gov. Bob McDonnell proclaims June as Virginia Dairy Month, and reminds residents that milk is the official beverage of the commonwealth. Also: Anyone know a good omelet chef? The mansion is hiring.

+1 A study is released on the millennial generation, meant to help attract young professionals to the region, showing they want cool jobs, good food and fun places to hang out. And so let us resolve to erect a Dave & Buster's on every corner!

+8 Memorial Day is commemorated in Richmond with backyard relaxing, fireworks over Rocketts Landing and a ceremony at the Virginia War Memorial. Moments of reflecting on those who died while serving our country, before we go back to complaining about Facebook's new layout.

+5 Also as part of Memorial Day weekend, Center of the Universe Brewing releases Homefront IPA, a beer aged on Louisville Slugger bats and made by several breweries to raise money for a military charity. We will always get behind beer for a cause.
