Richmond with Gerome
Celebrating some combination of my birthday and Corbin and Susannah's final days in Richmond, Christine and I spent a weekend with the Crafts and Co.
The trip was brought to us by Uber, as we learned that not all drivers are created equal. A total stranger saved Christine and Gillian from making a questionable call, while Christine and I called Gerome, our driver from earlier, at a questionable hour. Christine's always-friendly chit-chat came in handy when we had to meet Gerome in the middle of the night. For that, Gerome, we thank you.
Minutes before closing, we stumbled through the Christmas-lit Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and admired an impressive train collection and an even more impressive look-a-like painting to that guy from Peaky Blinders.
We ended the night at Chris's home, flicking through photos from the day on an oversized iPad while listening to Johnny Ive describe the meaning of a pencil on an Apple TV. We ended the night (and that Apple commercial) with Chris trapped inside an infinite loop of photos where he'll probably spend the rest of his days.
And this morning, we had really big sandwiches at Black Sheep.
While Christine and I were unsuccessful in our secret mission to prevent Corbin and Susannah from moving to Los Angeles, the trip made for the most satisfying conclusion to the Crafty-Loizou's RVA series.
