How many weeks before an event should I submit it to you?
Because we publish only twice each month, we recommend submitting your events as early as possible to ensure they appear at least once in print. Ideally, we would like to receive submissions 45-60 days prior to the date of the event.
I submitted an event but it didn't appear in print. Why not?
We receive numerous events each month and are unable to publish each one. We attempt to publish a wide variety of event notices from various organizations, giving preference to those that take place in Henrico and have a wide-reaching appeal to our readers. If your event was not included, we may have received it too late or simply lacked available space to include it this time. We do make every effort to include as many events as possible in our online calendar of events, which you may view here.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ worthy of its franchise
Do Muppets sleep? It’s hard to say.
They don’t really eat (or breathe, as far as anyone can tell). And only occasionally do they have visible, functioning legs.
As far as anyone knows, sleeping might be off the table. And that makes it very hard to accuse the Muppets of sleepwalking through their latest feature, Muppets Most Wanted – even if that’s exactly what’s going on.
Jim Henson’s beloved creations were back in a big way after 2011’s The Muppets, with fame and fortune and even an Oscar, a first for the group (“Rainbow Connection” was nominated, yet somehow failed to collect at the ’79 ceremony). > Read more.

Is it heresy to say – in this bastion-of-tradition capital of the Old South – that it's time for Southern fried chicken to take a step back and make way for a new fried chicken king?
Count me among the new believers bowing to Bonchon Chicken's delectable double-fried bliss. Hand-brushed with signature garlic soy or hot sauce, flash-fried once and then again, the decadent drums and wings take "crisp" to a new level. If you're eating with a crowd and everyone bites in at once, be warned: you might need ear plugs to handle the din. > Read more.
