Hardywood Park to hold RVA ‘Best Town Ever’ party

July 8, 2012 7:10pm

The final push is on for Richmond in Outside Magazine’s ‘Best Town Ever’ competition. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here. Otherwise, Hardywood Park brewery seems like a good place to be on Wednesday night from 4-8 p.m.  Here’s the scoop from their website:

Kayakers, mountain bikers and rock climbers love a finely crafted beer almost as much as their favorite surfing hole, singletrack or rock wall. On July 11th, we’re giving them the best of both. Outside, the nation’s largest outdoor-enthusiast publication is picking it’s “Best Town Ever” for 2012. RVA currently leads the the vote. Our goal is to not just win the vote, but to CRUSH it.

Our special event will feature some of the finest outdoor outfitters in the region paired with some of the finest craft brews in the country. Sample the latest gear and the latest brews. Vote for RVA every day on Facebook through July 11th.

A portion of the evenings proceeds will benefit the James River Association.

Featured vendors will include:

  • River City Rafting
  • Blackdog Paddle
  • Sports Backers
  • Carytown Bicycle
  • Peluso Open Water

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
