The Score

Posted on Tue, Nov 11, 2014 at 12:14 PM

+2 Long lines form for the much-anticipated holiday release of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery's gingerbread stout. You fools! It's made of elves!

-4 The Wall Street Journal reports on Virginia's low turnout of 2.1 million voters, with exit polls showing that 68 percent of them think the country is "seriously off on the wrong track." On a high note, people showing off their "I Voted" sticker on Facebook was at an all-time high.

+3 During a visit to Richmond, Food Network star Alton Brown declares on Twitter that Church Hill's Proper Pie Co. makes "the best pumpkin pie I've ever had." Oh Alton, you probably say that in every city you bring your show to. Leaving cab fare on the nightstand was a nice touch though.

-3 Looking back on the summer, public health officials report a surge in beach closures and swimming advisories because of higher-than-normal bacteria levels. Which explains Virginia Beach's marketing slogan for next year: "At least we're still Ebola free!"

+1 The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile announces that it's visiting Richmond this week at local Kroger and Martin's grocery stores. This might be the only time posting "wiener selfies" will be sociably acceptable.
