Antique cars coming to Lakeside
Citizen Staff Reports 08/19/12
The Richmond Region Antique Automobile Club of America will host its 2012 Reliability Tour with stops throughout the region – including one in Lakeside – at the end of this month.
The club is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year and its tour, Aug. 27-31, will feature antique automobiles built in 1915 and years prior. It will stop Aug. 28 at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
The tour will visit several Civil War sites Aug. 27, along with Hanover Tavern and Hanover Courthouse. The following day, in addition to the Lewis Ginter visit, the group will travel to the Museum District in Richmond to explore the Virginia Historical Society Museum, which features the Richmond-built Kline Kar (pictured above).
On Aug. 29, the club will visit western Hanover County, including Scotchtown, the Beaver Dam Railroad Depot and Ashland. The following day of the tour will take participants to Berkeley Plantation, and the event will conclude Aug. 31 with a visit to the Tuckahoe Plantation and the home of Cindi and Reggie Nash.
The 10th Annual Filipino Festival will be held Aug. 7-8 at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 8200 Woodman Rd., beginning with opening ceremonies at 5 p.m. Friday and continuing with live entertainment, food and exhibits until 10 p.m. On Saturday the festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a full schedule of performances featuring traditional Filipino dance, music and song.
Filipino cuisine, including BBQ, pansit, lumpia, adobo, halo-halo, lechon, empanada and leche flan, will be available for purchase. The festival will also feature a children's area, church tours, exhibits, and health screenings. > Read more.
The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10. The new facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.
Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot
In Minions, those jibberjabbering little corncob things from Despicable Me have finally earned their own feature film. Specifically, three of them: Kevin (tall), Stuart (plays the ukulele) and Bob (loves his teddy bear), all voiced by co-director Pierre Coffin.
After tracing the evolution of Minionkind – we don’t know what they are, but we know they’re hardwired to serve the baddest villain around – our three Minion heroes set off upon a quest to save their species and find the newest, nastiest villain overlord. > Read more.
