The Score

Posted on Tue, Oct 28, 2014 at 12:18 PM

+3 Winery owners, industry insiders and restaurateurs are drawn to the Jefferson Hotel for the Virginia Wine Summit. For one brief day, it was the only place in Richmond where people weren't drinking craft beer.

+7 The Valentine museum holds its grand reopening after a yearlong, multimillion-dollar, 16,200-square-foot renovation. Polished, roomy and looking good — even Robert E. Lee's old boots were deodorized with that new-museum smell.

0 Neighborhood mainstay Buddy's Place gives word that it's moving to the Devil's Triangle after more than 30 years at its corner spot in the Fan. Starbucks moves in, Buddy's moves out, yet another sign of the apocalypse.

-1 After nearly 10 years on the dial as the "We play anything" station, Liberty radio says goodbye, merging with Big Oldies 107.3-FM to form a new station playing hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s. The only hitch is finding a few sturdy gramophones.

+2 Last-minute Halloween shoppers start flooding local thrift stores and costume shops to gear up for a weekend of trick-or-treating. Or, if you're an adult and like us, bar-hopping under an alias.
