Last Friday we drove to Richmond to pick Ashlyn up from the airport. We left a little early so we would have time to take a quick tour of Richmond. Richmond is chock-full of history and one of those cities on our list to check out. Once we got there, we drove around to see some of the sites from our car, then parked and walked downtown in search of some good eats! We ended up here, at the Tobacco Company. It looked like a cool place to go and the cigarette girl standing out front kind of cinched our decision, this looked like a cool spot!
The Tobacco Company is an old abandoned tobacco warehouse that fortunately was restored into this super hip restaurant. They have furnished it with some great old antiques and there is even an old brass elevator that actually works.
We ordered drinks and took a peek at the menu. Having the 3 boys with us, we noticed nothing on the menu that they would eat, in fact, after they looked at the menu, all 3 of them piped up with "I'll have a salad" lol...so we finished our drinks, soaked up the atmosphere and then headed down the street to City Dogs, a little hot dog joint that was sure to please 3 boys!
Anyways, I just loved this place and lookie there, you can see the sky from inside the restaurant! To see skies from all over the world, visit SKYLEY!
And by the way, how hot is it in your neck of the woods? I know most of the US is experiencing a major heat wave, us included. Today it's supposed to hit 98 with a heat index of 105. It's already toasty out this morning, 82 but feels like 88. Stay inside and keep cool if possible!!
