The Score

Posted on Tue, May 27, 2014 at 1:39 PM

-3 The city feels the effects of a 3.2-magnitude earthquake, which is followed later in the week by flash flooding, a pelting of hail and stunning rainbows. The mayor quickly changes course on his ballpark plan, submitting sketches for a large, wooden ark.

+7 Concerts, picnics and events honoring veterans give Richmonders a full Memorial Day Weekend. And on the river rocks at Belle Isle, things go off without a hitch at the annual Unveiling of the Pale Skin Festival.

-2 With a commute that starts at 4 a.m. in Chesterfield County and lasts an average of seven hours to Metro Center in Washington, Thurmond Alford Jr. wins an extreme commuter contest from WTOP 103.5-FM. All he really wants is a nap.

-1 Summit Media launches a new soft-rock station, Easy 100.9, which welcomes listeners to "the land of Refreshing Relaxation." Stay tuned for Detox Weekends, where every ninth caller wins a Kenny Loggins colonic.

+5 More than 70 restaurants are announced as participants in the outdoor food festival Broad Appétit, happening June 1, which is followed by RVA Bacon Week and the Richmond Bacon Festival. Which is followed by a napkin shortage.
