About the only thing to prompt me to give a review is customer service (good or bad). My family hired Chris and his crew for our yearly News Years Eve party when we decided that we wanted something a little different this time. Boy are we happy we did! We thought we were simply hiring a "BBQ guy" but what we ended up getting is a person that is passionate about food and insists on stellar customer service. Finally, someone who actually grasps the idea that they are in the SERVICE industry! And he does so with gusto. Chris was not only agreeable and patient but has a wealth of culinary background that allowed my family to sample some of the best Southern food we have ever had. Yes, besides Chris' high standard of service, the food is to die for. He even brought surprise side dishes just because he wanted us to try a dish that we were unfamiliar with. We are waiting for an excuse to hire him again.
I heard someone say "it was like a breath of fresh air" one day when they came in to the store for the first time. And it does. I have been a customer of The Aquarian for almost 20 years now. The new renovations are fabulous. The products include everything from an awesome crystal collection and cool jewelry, to beautiful fountains for your home, to Egyptian, Buddhas, Fairies and Angels, to Tarot and Runes, to a wonderful book section on metaphysical, self help, and various spiritual topics. And, yes there are some very talented readers there should you feel adventurous. The staff is very helpful and can guide you, inform you and special order items for you should they not have it in stock. I've been to metaphysical stores all over the country and this is one of my favorites! It's certainly the best I've seen in Richmond area, and one of the best on the East coast.
A cool little Italian restaurant located in the local neighborhood. Has a good neighborhood feel to it. Went there was some high school friends Bobby McEntee, Walter Stumpf and Mike Natale after our 40th reunion. Have the baked spaghetti and it was the best I've had in many many years. Not too cheesy and just the right amount of sauce and pasta. I follow the lead of my Italian friend Mike Natale. I would also recommend to take out special of baked spaghetti, salad and bread for 5 dollars. A great value.
