The Score

This Week: Greek Fest, Richmond's new budget, "Killing Kennedy" + more.


+7 Tens of thousands of people eat their way through the weekend at Broad Appétit and the Richmond Greek Festival. Let's just say we had more Greek-filled bellies than a Trojan horse.

0 City Council approves the mayor's $1.4 billion budget for Richmond's new fiscal year, which starts in July. Sure it sounds like a lot, but have you seen the skyrocketing prices on red tape?

-1 A somewhat controversial event billed as the first of its kind in Virginia, the RVA Adult Expo, turns out to be relatively mild and uneventful. Just like prom night.

+1 Shockoe nightclub the Lucky Buddha closes, promising to reopen as a full-service restaurant and bar with a "modern Chicago-style lounge setting." Expect a lot of deep dish V-necks.

+2 The National Geographic Channel film, "Killing Kennedy," starts production in Richmond with Rob Lowe playing JFK. According to rumors on set, Judd Nelson plays a very convincing Lee Harvey Oswald.
