The Score

Posted on Tue, Jun 9, 2015 at 1:00 AM

-7 A one-time local business giant, Health Diagnostic Laboratory, files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, owing $73 million to more than 30 creditors. So if you received any blood-testing gift certificates for Christmas, looks like you’re out of luck.

+3 National Doughnut Day causes apparently sugar-starved Richmonders to create traffic jams and long lines for special deals. The only doughnut shop that seemed to be empty was the RVA Diabetes Hut, which is closing down to re-brand.

+6 Speaking of lines, tens of thousands of festival-goers fill a stretch of Broad Street for food samples from restaurants across town at Broad Appétit. And then diners in the know took a short jaunt west for the After Dinner Monu-Mint.

-1 CBS-6 reports on the crash of the General Lee from “The Dukes of Hazzard,” which results in no injuries, on Interstate 64 near Short Pump. An anonymous source going by “Daisy” tells Mark Holmberg that the driver lost control while speeding to a jean shorts sale at H&M.

+5 Such stars as Jason Mraz and Sara Bareilles join 200 young performers of all abilities — both typically developing and those with special needs — for SPARC’s touching Live Art show, which entertains an audience of thousands. Next year, can we get some Kleenex with our tickets?
