Our Own Favorites

For our regular readers, or those of you just joining us, we’re coming up on our one year anniversary: December 7, 2007, a date which will live in famy (get it?  Anyone?  Anyone?) (Crickets).  We’re thinking of maybe having some huge Happy Hour next month, which details will follow if we end up doing anything.

For now though, please enjoy a few of our own picks from the past year, in no particular order.  There are others we could post, but quite frankly, going through the archives will take too long.  If you’re new here, use the search box at the right to look for most any topic in Richmond; it’s probably been covered.  

Whether you’ve been reading since December or just came across us, here are a few must-reads as you journey down Tobacco Avenue:

  1. So how can the infamous ‘Gene Cox pissed about not making the Style power list’ not on here. That story was by far TA’s biggest to date.
