WTF (What the Fashion) Comedy Show – @ Current

Hi friends and bloggers! This is Liz, from iheartvegetables and I’m kicking off our Thursday Feature with a restaurant that I just had the pleasure of trying, as well as some upcoming events in Richmond!

Thursday night, my friend Eric and I wanted to do something different, so we decided to check out Current, a restaurant in downtown Richmond, that was hosting WTF (What the Fashion?!) a stand up comedy event to support the upcoming RVA Fashion Week. Since Eric and I hadn’t been to Current, we figured this was a great opportunity!

We got there around 8, and were surprised to learn that their happy hour went until 9pm! That’s a huge perk. I hate when Happy Hours end before I could logically arrive and enjoy a drink. They had $1 rail drinks (yes, $1) so I had a few vodka/sodas with a splash of cranberry. (Best way to cut down on sugar, but still get the flavor of vodka-cran!)

We decided to split a bunch of appetizers in order to try more things. We ended up with wings, a black bean quesadilla, and sweet potato fries. I have a weekness for sweet potato fries…

Since I’m a vegetarian, I didn’t dig into the wings. Eric said they were just ok, but nothing spectacular. However, the quesadilla was much better than I expected. It had fresh pico de gallo inside, and was packed with beans, and not too much cheese. It was right up my alley, and a steal, for just $$. The basket of sweet potato fries was huge, and only $$.

The comedy act was supposed to start at 8, but it ended up not beginning until 9, which was fine, since Eric and I were enjoying happy hour 😉

The comics did a good job, despite a less-than-packed venue, and everyone seemed to be in good spirits. The $5 cover was well worth it, especially since it was to support RVA Fashion Week.

And if you haven’t heard about RVA Fashion Week, you can check out the list of events here.

#VAis4bloggers

Just when you thought we were joking with the #VAis4bloggers hashtag…we are making it reality!

We love the community that blogging provides, and want to make it easier to discover and connect with other local and statewide bloggers (and blog readers), as well as local events and businesses that support our passions.

We’ve started this site–as well as a twitter handle @VAis4bloggers.

Most importantly, we’d love to have you involved!

Initially, we will “kick it off” with our food and lifestyle bloggers, but over the next few months we hope to expand to blogs of all varieties, including music, art, events, family, etc.

We will feature one Virginia blogger each Monday, and one local restaurant/event each Thursday. We will also try to keep the events page updated, so that new bloggers can find where we are!

More updates to come!
