The Score

Posted on Tue, Jun 3, 2014 at 2:22 PM

+5 Tens of thousands of hungry Richmonders flock to food at the Richmond Greek Festival and Broad Appétit, leading into RVA Bacon Week. Stay tuned for details on Richmond Muffin Top Month.

-4 Mayor Dwight Jones pulls his Shockoe Bottom ballpark plan in advance of a likely vote against it by City Council, but says he'll bring it back for reconsideration. This has been the longest seventh-inning stretch in history.

-2 The Henrico County Schools put a temporary halt to serving milk after students said it made them sick. School spokesman Andy Jenks issued a Spoiler Alert.

+1 The Washington Redskins announce that their training camp in Richmond will run July 24-Aug. 11, with fan appreciation day set for Saturday, Aug. 2. That's despite previous reports that fan appreciation day was when they let Mike Shanahan go.

+3 The metal band Gwar launches a campaign to raise $50,000 to open a themed restaurant called GWARbar with Rappahannock Oyster co-owner Travis Croxton. If there's a way to make raw oysters look more shocking, Gwar will find it.
