As fun as a good holiday party can be… here are a few great excuses for skipping out on those dreaded holiday parties.

 

 

LEWIS GINTER BOTANICAL GARDEN

This is a true holiday tradition, no need to feel guilty for skipping when you’re headed here. The Dominion GardenFest of Lights is open nightly through January 9. So no matter the day of the dreaded party, you have an excuse.

 

 

BYRD THEATRE

Now a second run movie house, the Byrd Theatre is one of the last remaining movie palaces from the roaring 20’s, and a Richmond favorite. Here you can get a glance at the glamour and enjoy a cheap movie, plus they recently started accepting credit cards at the concession stand.

 

 

UPTOWN ALLEY

Strike up the entertainment at Uptown Alley. Bowling, a sports theater, billiards, and games, plus live music. This happening place makes a great escape from mundane party goings.
