Favorite thing: Despite its corporate name Fas Mart Pavilion at Innsbrook, many people still call it by its original name, simply the Innsbrook Pavilion. Innsbrook is an enormous office park in Glen Allen. They decided to allocate some green space to have concerts, corporate picnics, and other events such as a Cajun food festival. The pictured event is of the Republican Roundup which featured Senator George Allen and Congressman Eric Cantor among other dignitaries. Unlike many such events, this one was free, even the food. From spring through to early autumn, Innsbrook After Hours hosts a bunch of concerts in the evenings. Admission prices for concerts here are a fraction of what they would be at a larger venue like at the Coliseum downtown. If you attend an event here, you need to know they have a strict no tailgating policy. If you are interested during the right time of year in seeing a concert here, visit their website.

Father Christmas at the Mall
Favorite thing: The only redeeming value to visiting a shopping mall at Christmas is seeing the little nippers queue up to sit on Father Christmas' lap, giving them their want list, and having a snap taken of them together. It reminds me of a simpler time when I was doing similarly at Eastgate Mall (now named Fairfield Commons) and at Miller & Rhoads downtown.
