The Score

Posted on Tue, Nov 25, 2014 at 1:24 PM

+5 Video Fan says it’s staying open after successfully meeting a fundraising goal of $35,200. It was a close call, but now that the VHS version of Patrick Swayze’s bouncer-philosopher classic, “Roadhouse,” is being safeguarded again, our faith in humanity is restored.

+2 Local media deliver good news for Tucker, the emotional-support pig used as a pet in a Brandermill household, who’ll be allowed to stay until the Board of Supervisors can decide its fate. Tucker was planning to throw a party to celebrate the delay, but his place is sort of a sty.

-8 After a shocking Rolling Stone story detailing a victim’s experience, the University of Virginia draws national attention for how sexual assaults are poorly handled on campuses across the country. Maybe this is one time we don’t have to follow Thomas Jefferson’s lead.

+4 With Thanksgiving ahead, tired and frazzled Richmonders see light at the end of the tunnel. And by light we mean a big fat drooling nap with football playing in the background.

+3 Gelati Celesti celebrates its 30th year of churning out decadent concoctions and opens a new store in Short Pump. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And it isn’t frozen yogurt.
