Food and refreshments will also be available. Enjoy wonderful “Irish Lasagna” prepared by the Ladies of St. Patrick’s, “Fish and Chips” and other favorites provided by Rare Olde Times Irish Pub, and many more.
A huge children’s play area will be sponsored by the great folks from “LINC”.

Proceeds also benefit the historic preservation of St. Patrick’s Church, a “little church with a big heart” built in the 1850?s by Irish Immigrants to Richmond, and its outreach programs.
A new round of signs commenting on the proposed Shockoe redevelopment plan appeared sometime Saturday night.

On the morning of Saturday 15 February at approximately 6:00 a.m., my friend was waiting for the bus at the 29th and Marshall Street intersection. A man that was walking nearby stopped and turned his back to her. When he turned around and started making vulgar and suggestive remarks, she looked up and saw that he had pulled his sweatpants down in the front and was walking toward her while openly masturbating. He was roughly 4 yards away from her when this happened.
Fortunately, the bus was heading up the block as she was turning to get away from him while calling 911. He ran away, she got on the bus and was not physically harmed.
Unfortunately, this is absolutely not a joke, she was not able to get a good look at his face…and it also happened in front of an elementary school.
Big difference at 1002 North 36th Street between November 2011 and today…
