More fun than college, savor the flavors of the exotic and homegrown at five local restaurants and food purveyors, such as, depending on the day Ipanema, The Nile, William Miller House B & B, The Empress, The Black Sheep, S@mple, Cellar Door, The Magpie and more on this 1.5 mile walking tour that walks us through VCU’s vibrant Monroe Park Campus with a detour (some tours) into the adjacent Carver neighborhood.
Besides samples and insider info from chefs and owners, our 2.5 hour food tour will highlight the arts, literary, and musical history of the area as well as pay heed to the Victorian architecture of The Fan.

Flight Night @ Secco

Mon Jun 25 7:00 pm
Trying new things is like hitting the refresh button on our existence: it delivers us from complacency, engages our senses and forces us to question our tastes, values and, in turn, our very nature. Yet, more often than not, most of us will opt for the familiar over the unknown. Every Monday.
