The Score

comment

-3 The city feels the effects of a 3.2-magnitude earthquake, which is followed later in the week by flash flooding, a pelting of hail and stunning rainbows. The mayor quickly changes course on his ballpark plan, submitting sketches for a large, wooden ark.

+7 Concerts, picnics and events honoring veterans give Richmonders a full Memorial Day Weekend. And on the river rocks at Belle Isle, things go off without a hitch at the annual Unveiling of the Pale Skin Festival.

-2 With a commute that starts at 4 a.m. in Chesterfield County and lasts an average of seven hours to Metro Center in Washington, Thurmond Alford Jr. wins an extreme commuter contest from WTOP 103.5-FM. All he really wants is a nap.

-1 Summit Media launches a new soft-rock station, Easy 100.9, which welcomes listeners to "the land of Refreshing Relaxation." Stay tuned for Detox Weekends, where every ninth caller wins a Kenny Loggins colonic.

+5 More than 70 restaurants are announced as participants in the outdoor food festival Broad App├ętit, happening June 1, which is followed by RVA Bacon Week and the Richmond Bacon Festival. Which is followed by a napkin shortage.
