Video: Hunt / Gather 2016

If you’ve been following us for a while, then it comes as no surprise that our annual Ledbury Quail Hunt is one of the most exciting times of year for Team Ledbury (not to mention exhausting) and something we look forward to the second autumn rolls around. For this year’s Quail Hunt we did thing...

Maketto, Your Home

For many outsiders, D.C. seems like the city equivalent of a shiny, mylar Fourth of July pinwheel; emblazoned nationalism and corporate sprawl in place of culture and dynamic communities.  Unfavorable reputations of the area spread far and wide, though the city seems more harshly criticized by residents of neighboring states and cities, like Richmond and...

Gotta Have Soul: KREWE du optic

Gotta Have Soul: KREWE du optic

Take a few steps down Royal Street in the daylight, and you’re sure to see street performers, palm readers with crystal balls, or even a woman playing the baddest electric violin cover of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Amongst the bustle, we sought out a like-minded brand with a minimal yet impactful presence in “The...

In The Neighborhood: Roaring Pines

As you may have guessed from previous Easy Goer posts, it’s a pretty exciting time to be in our hometown. It seems like every week there is a new restaurant, cafe, or thoughtfully planned shop opening their doors, making it harder and harder to find reasons to leave Richmond. We recently stopped by Roaring Pines,...

Richmond Folk Festival 2015 Playlist

We look forward to the Richmond Folk Festival year after year. As one of the largest events our fine city hosts, the Folk Fest (as the locals say) serves as the unofficial beginning of fall for many locals.

Atlanta Scene: Andover Trask

Atlanta Scene: Andover Trask

The story of "finance man turned entrepreneur of beautifully crafted goods” is one we know all too well. It’s a story we hear a different iteration of almost daily, and to be quite frank, a story that never gets old. We were first introduced to Matt Weaver of Andover Trask through our good friend, entrepreneur...
Nashville's Best with Hattie B's

Nashville's Best with Hattie B's

When we hear “Nashville,” we think “hot chicken,” and Hattie B’s has made quite a name for themselves with hot chicken fans far and wide. Executive Chef John Lasater, 28, was awarded Forbes Top 30 Under 30 in the Food & Wine Category in 2015, opening two restaurants in three years alongside of owners Nick...
The Tiny Bar at Black Iris

The Tiny Bar at Black Iris

The Tiny Bar at Black Iris is one of our favorite places in town to catch a show. A bit elusive, it’s one of those places that many locals haven’t even yet discovered. Black Iris is a music production company and gallery space located at 321 W Broad St. When Black Iris moved in to...
