Morning after blues for Black 

Outgoing Richmond CAO-cum-deputy-CAO-cum-acting-deputy-CAO-cum-CFO-cum consultant Harry Black was toasted at a going away party Tuesday night at Richbrau, the Wilder administrations unofficial hangout. Mayor L. Douglas Wilder, along with various administration officials partied at the same Shockoe Bottom brew pub on election night. Black's final day with the city is today -- Nov. 21. He was spotted the afternoon after his Richbrau party eating alone in a back booth at Comfort, a dozen blocks down from City Hall on Broad Street. Asked about his lack of a lunch buddy, Black said he planned on laying low for the next few months and that there was a “family business” he would be working for. That family business? It doesn't take three guesses to hit on the Washington D.C.-based consulting firm he owned prior to coming to the city.
