Ok, Who's going??? Other than me??? I have not seen a thread on there yet so....
The show will be on Saturday, October 5th from 9-5. the location is 600 Perdue Ave Richmond, Va 23224. I have not been to the Richmond show since they restarted it, they seem to keep having it the same weekend as the Grayson fall festival every year and....Pipes/tobacco.....Mt Rogers......hmmmm Too much "mountain man" in me I reckon! This year though, they are different weekends so I'll be there. Good thing too, as I drive right by the place every afternoon!
Anyone else going?

We should get a list together of who we have going. Maybe we could get together for breakfast before the show?

I'm going. Don't know if I'd make if for breakfast though. I've never been. Cash only? Surely folks will have square readers?

I have no idea. Usually show a re a mix but I make a habit of walking in with some cash in pocket.

I stopped by there yesterday, on the way home from work. The place is literally within site of my daily drive home.
It is one block over from US Route 1/301/Jefferson Davis Highway. You turn west off of Jeff Davis on Maury Street (across from the "301 Express) and them take the first left, Perdue St. Do NOT turn into the neighboring plants parking lot off of Maury. Perdue is a short, wide street headed down to the Sutliff building and I did not see much parking there. There is a small trucking lot on the far end of the building. Maybe there is more area in there than I realized, for parking?
There are no signs on the Sutliff building, just the crests for Sutliff and McBarren, on the glass of the front doors.
It is right across the street from the back of the Maury cemetery, a very old Richmond landmark.
Just FYI, and I am sure someone will attack me for saying this but, in good faith I have to pass it along, this is NOT the .....ummmm....."best" area of Richmond. Lots of old industry hanging on but....if someone approaches you, outside of the event, I doubt they have your best interests in mind if you catch my drift. This is why I am stopping for breakfast so far away.
