The Washington Post has recommendations for visitors coming to town over the next couple weeks for the Redskins summer training camp. And for the most part, they're real hip spots. Don't Look Back, Saison and Lamplighter all make the list.

But something about the lineup the Post selected seems a little too well manicured -- the list reads like something provided by the city's department of economic development.

Yes, tacos and lattes are great, but what about the grittier, more home-spun spots that make Richmond unique? The mayonnaise drenched boxed lunches from Sally Bell's. The covert trips to sneak sandwiches to the overweight donkey at Maymont. The long swims among the nude bathers at Texas Beach.

So tell us: What overlooked Richmond treasures should we include in our hypothetical guide for training camp visitors? Comment away.
