The Score

Posted on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 at 4:19 PM

+4 The National Weather Service reports a record-setting temperature of 76 degrees on Dec. 22, the warmest it's been on that day since 1923. Santa can finally rock those red and green Speedos he got from Mrs. Claus.

-2 Radio personalities Bill Bevins and Shelly Perkins say goodbye to listeners in their farewell morning show on Lite-98, after more than a dozen years as an on-air team. Anyone struggling with their emotions may send dedications to 1-888-6-DELILAH.

+5 Youth of all ages and abilities from SPARC bring a crowd of more than 3,300 people to their feet at the Landmark Theater, sharing the stage with local music stars and such performers as Jason Mraz, K.D. Lang, René Marie and Christina Perri. Was it an incredible show, you ask? Does Jason Mraz wear a fedora?

-4 Citing liability concerns with security and crowd size, Carytown announces that it won't hold its New Year's Eve countdown and ball rising on the roof of the Byrd Theatre. C'mon, it's 2013. We're much more civilized than the time we partied like it was 1999. In 2012.

+1 The Richmond Flying Squirrels announce that their new beer with Center of the Universe Brewing Company, described as "a smooth, easy-drinking lager," will be called Chin Music. Where there is Chin Music there is a party in your mouth and ringing in your ears.
