The Score


+7 Monument Avenue is filled with sunshine, music and animals in costume for the annual Easter on Parade. Long ears and sloppy kisses were abundant thanks to dogs in bonnets and porch drinkers in bunny ears.

-4 The AP reports on a Henrico neighborhood upset about Easter eggs left on their lawns containing racist notes instead of candy. The hate group also plans to boycott Reese's cups, because you just can't go mixing chocolate and peanut butter.

-3 Compensation for chief executives of the city's publicly traded companies rose an average of $749,000 last year, reports Richmond BizSense, with Altria's Marty Barrington getting a pay package valued at $20.13 million. But is he happy? Really, truly happy? Yes.

+5 Hundreds of revelers pour into and around Legend Brewing Co. for the 20th anniversary celebration of the city's grandfather of craft beer. It's one grandfather who smells of alcohol who you don't mind visiting.

+1 Meanwhile, the city's newest beer maker, Triple Crossing Brewery, celebrates its opening week in Monroe Ward. If Richmond keeps going at this rate, City Council's going to find some way to institute a tax on hops.
