THE PERFECT WEEKEND IN RICHMOND, VA
We spent the weekend in Richmond, VA at the Graduate hotel. I went to VCU & I love to go back to Richmond once a year, if possible, because it holds a special place in my heart. It was so great to catch up with friends & be back there.
We loved the Graduate hotel & would highly recommend it. They had good service, really nice rooms, it was reasonably priced, had a great rooftop restaurant/bar, & a little coffee/breakfast bar in the lobby. When we got there Friday night we went to Star-lite for drinks & late night snacks.
On Saturday, we had brunch at Lulu's (make a reservation!) & it was absolutely delicious. After brunch, we went to Blue Bee Cider and did a cider tasting. I'd been there once before and really like it a lot. It's a super cute place & I love tasting the different ciders they have, they're all so different. We went to Buskey Cider & Three Notch'd Brewery as well.
We headed back to the hotel & spent the afternoon at the Byrd House, the rooftop bar at the Graduate hotel. There's a great view, plenty of comfy seating, good snacks, & the best frosé. For dinner that night we went to L'opossum, which came highly recommended to us, but we were actually not impressed. The restaurant has great vibes & is really nicely decorated but the service wasn't great and the food was decent, but didn't wow us.
On Sunday, we had brunch at Lucy's and loved it. They don't take reservations so we had grabbed coffee and fresh juice next door at Saadia's Juicebox while we waited on a table. Saadia's is probably the cutest coffee/juice shop I've ever been in! The decor was absolutely adorable.
That concludes our weekend in RVA! I already miss it and can't wait for our next trip!
