To begin with we stopped by Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden early in the morning. We had already planned to stroll along the rosy paths before we realized what else was going on. Took a few shots of the lovelies.
Fun times. (And my Nuttall's Market photo is on display at Art Works - go check it out!)
After the impromptu distraction, we high tailed it to the Byrd Theatre to see the matinee showing of John Carter. I know, it got all manner of bad reviews, but me and hubby had read the books and had to see it. What better way than for $2 and the biggest screen in Richmond? I'll admit that Disney took some liberties with the story line (at least this was a work of fiction to begin with and not the trashing of Pocahontas). Still, a rollicking western on Mars.
For dinner we hit up Bonvenu again. We had such a comforting experience there we wanted to go back. We started with Fried Calamari (decent with a light batter), a cheeseburger (satisfying), and a roasted turkey and bacon sandwich with mashed potatoes (so good, I ordered it on this visit, too). Washed down with a tasty Italian red.
