Posted on Tue, Jun 11, 2013 at 2:27 PM


+4 The XTERRA East Championship marks its 15th year in Richmond, featuring biking, swimming and trail running in a race that takes competitors in and around the James River Park System. These were not the people at the Bacon Festival.

+6 Yes, thousands of local eaters eager for pork have a weekend for the books, flocking to the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival and Richmond's first Bacon Festival. Mark your calendars now for next weekend's I Swear These Pants Used to Fit Me Fiesta.

+1 The summer vacation countdown begins, with students and parents across Richmond heading toward the last day of school on Friday, June 14. For teachers, this is also known as the Second Job Season.

+3 Richmond-based Media General, which sold off its newspapers last year, merges with New Young Broadcasting, growing to 30 television stations in 27 markets, reaching 14 percent of U.S. TV households. Employee attractiveness just skyrocketed.

+2 The filming of "Killing Kennedy" kicks off star-spotting in Richmond, with the actress playing Jackie O., Ginnifer Goodwin, tweeting about a French meal enjoyed at Bistro Bobette. And now we wait for Instagram pics of a shirtless Rob Lowe playing water pong at Cha-Cha's.
