The Score

Posted on Tue, Sep 8, 2015 at 1:00 AM

-4 The Labor Day weekend brings cookouts, back-to-school preparation and the unofficial end to summer. But if you’re worried you won’t have the heat to complain about, stay positive: The winter of our frozen discontent is right around the corner!

+1 City Council holds its annual retreat at the University of Richmond, hearing presentations and discussing broad goals for the coming year. First order of business: new chairs. Ya know, the swively ones with lumbar support?

+1 Speaking to the local Retail Merchants Association, the Federal Reserve Bank’s Jeffrey Lacker makes bullish economic predictions and pushes for higher interest rates. But he’s still perplexed about why Justin Bieber cried at the VMAs.

+2 Philanthropists Bill and Pam Royall put their Cary Street Road mansion on the market for $3.95 million, Richmond BizSense reports, citing it as the most expensive listing in the city. But will Pam be able to get Bill to part with his ratty old Barcalounger?

+3 Richmond breweries Hardywood, Midnight Creek and Lickinghole Creek win golds at the Virginia Craft Brewers cup competition, with the Answer bringing home best in show for its India Pale Ale. Yet mysteriously, this remains the city of PBR.
