Loving Lemons is now open in the former Cyclus spot. The new retail shop across from ERA Vintage offers an array of gift items and accessories including purses and jewelry, and plans to be open Wednesday-Sunday.
A normally sane source has sent a description of an anti-Captain Buzzy’s advert seen tonight:
For REAL – it was an anti-Buzzy SUP info-mercial style commercial during the CNN time slot at about 7:15. Detailed the coffee shop and what they want to do, that the neighbors are against it, showed pouring booze in a coffee cup, a picture of the City Council members.
Can anyone confirm this?

An undated photo of the Fulton Gas Works and Chimborazo from the special collections at the Library of Virginia.
When Lee Gregory talks about “a special time” in Richmond, the chef of the youthful Roosevelt restaurant isn’t referring to the Washington Redskins’ recent first-ever training camp in Virginia’s capital or the city’s ongoing celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. What Lee is describing is a dining scene engaging enough to merit a drive from Washington,
a path this diner made twice over recent weekends.
Locals say corporate establishments in Richmond are giving way to more personal independent restaurants, a trend spurred in part by what Travis Croxton, a local oyster purveyor, calls a greater cultural awareness among diners and “chefs pushing each other,
in a friendly way.”

With the business closed since the building was condemned in mid-April, the future of the structure at Jefferson and 24th is in doubt.
The city lists the owner as MANN SELMA R & JOSEPHINE R KATZ RESIDUARY TR. Selma and Josephine are two sisters, both deceased; the executor of the estate is lawyer John Mann, son of Selma.
I spoke to Mr.Mann this past Thursday. He said that the building either needs to be fixed up or torn down, but that no decision had been made at this time.
I told Mr.Mann that rumor on the street was that the building might soon be rented out to a former tenant. He said that this was not so
He also said that the most recent tenant of the space was suing the estate. The allegation as I understand it is that the landlords (the estate) are responsible for the lost business due to the building being condemned, because the the condemnation was due to negligence on the part of the building’s owner.
