It’s been one crazy week.
The Pimento Cheese, Please! screening at The Hippodrome was a great success. I was so honored to have it there. I was proud that tickets, in part, benefited the Historic Jackson Ward Association. I know that Jackson Ward, aka the “Harlem of the South” has recently been lauded in the NYT, but we need to take pride in that neighborhood all the time, and in it’s rich history. It’s so easy to forget the amazing histories in our city. I hope the Hipp continues to grow with the community and bring J Ward back to it’s former glory. It should be noted that we have some wonderful present day history makers here in town. I cannot thank Richmond Magazine enough, not only for it’s help in pulling off this event but for taking a real interest in all of the people, events and organizations here in RVA. For not only supporting and reporting on this city and it’s growth but more importantly being genuinely excited about them. Thanks also to the food fanatics who bought tickets, the judges, Duke’s….
I of course, was BLOWN AWAY by all of the wonderful food our great restaurants donated. Their time, talents and cheese were really the highlight of the night. We want to thank everyone who helped to make our movie and to all of those who made it’s RVA premiere one of the best nights in my life.
