The Score

Posted on Tue, Nov 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM

+5 Halloween falls on a Saturday, making Richmond go extra bonkers with costumes, trick-or-treating and parties across town. And if you think a hangover is bad, try waking up with a hangover under a Donald Trump wig.

-6 With nearly three decades of wins behind him, beloved Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer says he’s retiring at the end of the season. Cue the sad, acoustic version of “Enter Sandman.”

+2 Richmond’s longest food event, Fire, Flour & Fork, draws hundreds of eager dining enthusiasts to nearly five days of programming. And now they need a Fire, Flour & Forklift to get off the couch.

+1 After two years, CenterStage finds its new executive director from within its ranks, naming Janet Starke to the job. She soared through the audition process with her ingenious spin on a kick ball change.

+7 It was Election Day this week. We went to press before the results were announced, but we’re fairly confident that the real winner in the contentious Gecker and Sturtevant race was the United States Postal Service.
