Richmond? Richmond!

Our low opinion of Richmond -- based on a rainy trip and a snowy visit -- turned 180 degrees this week.

We started with the Design Sponge city guide for Richmond (they have many other great guides) and got ourselves to a great vegan lunch spot, some superb art galleries and a few cool shops.

I could see us living in Richmond.

Among our adventures I probably most enjoyed Page Bond Gallery (some favorites: images 1 and 9). A close second was our lunch at Ipanema.

Like Cleveland and Pittsburgh and Detroit, the city has its share of industrial might and blight, which I like, and its specialty shops are special.

Love those D*S city guides. It's how I found stuff for Baltimore.

I'm disappointed that there's no DS guide to St. Louis, because those look very useful.
