Don Huntington, aboard the SS RED OAK, opened to the public this year in the Richmond, shipyards.

A Fun Day In Richmond

Every Sunday You Can Board A Floating Museum, Visit A Unique Winery, And Enjoy A Fine Waterfront Dining Experience 

My friend Don Huntington, of 110 Magazine Fame and Ghostwriter Extraordinaire, picked me up at 8:00 AM and we headed to Richmond. By 9:00 AM we were in the Richmond Shipyards staring at the last remaining WW2 Victory ship, THE SS RED OAK, in the dock where she was built and launched for war service on Nov 9, 1944. It was Fleet-Week and they did some special things onboard for the occasion. We were served a fabulous breakfast from the galley of the ship and enjoyed the Rossmor Big Band performance while we ate. Included was a rousing rendition of Anchors Aweigh, my personal favorite. We took in fabulous views of the bay as we walked the ship and climbed many a stair to get to the top of the ship. I admit, it made me a little dizzy and I swear I could feel the ship moving beneath my feet (landlubber legs HA!)

When we disembarked we walked to a large building nearby that said METAL SHOP. Inside was RIGGERS LOFT, a winery. We saw vats, barrels, and a huge bar. They also have a 7,000 sq. ft patio (right on the bay) where bands play (see our event calendar for the music schedule). Unfortunately, they were setting up for a wedding and closed to serving old wannabe sailors.

We took our thirst and appetites to LARA'S FINE DINING, also in Richmond, just a few minutes away, and met a nice bartender, named Nichole, who lives in Brentwood! She likes working at LARA'S and intends to stay, it's a long story she says (aren't they all). It's also in the marina so we could see the Bay from the bar. They have a baby grand piano in one of the dining rooms and play jazz on weekends. I spotted a dessert cart they wheel around to diners (I took a photo of it, if you ask me, I will send it to you), this is a nice place, with good food and service, and incredible waterfront views. I made an event page with all the vitals in it check it out below for some Sunday fun.
