I didn’t stay away from the museum for long since it apparently has had a history of turnover and I believe in the outlast-outplay motto (Thank you Survivor Season 1). But until the last decade, I wasn’t a frequent patron of the Poe Museum… which is a shame because people like me really are their target audience.

Unhappy Hours have gotten better and better… and need I say that last night’s was the best one yet! The music was great; the food was amazing; the acting was silly but appreciated; the exhibit included a portrait of Poe painted in blood. What more could a gothy girl want?!?

The fact is I’m so used to the spooky stuff being packed away (like Pier 1 had packed up their Halloween merchandise two weeks before the holiday last year!) that I suppose I haven’t noticed that the Greater Richmond area is changing and embracing its spookiness! I mean… in small steps because there probably aren’t that many of us. In fact, at Unhappy Hour a few Haunters showed up including some members of the book club. One of the Haunters and I were chatting and it turns out that he was at the hearse car show… so I have known these folks for a while without even realizing it.
I have to point out before any of this chitchatting/ sit-back-and-enjoy-music happened, I immediately spotted deviled eggs and got in line to try out Southern Kitchen: Mouth of the South’s food. Holy moly! Those deviled eggs were divine… the pimento cheese YUM! That with a glass of pinot grigio pretty much made the perfect evening.
Well, you know what they say…
Eat, Drink and Be Scary for tomorrow we shall die ^o^
