What To Expect When Dining At The Tobacco Company Restaurant

What makes this restaurant tick?

If you happen to wander down East Cary Street in the Shockoe Slip of Richmond, Virginia, you will come across The Tobacco Company Restaurant: a four-story venue comprised of two dining floors, a cocktail lounge with live music, and a popular nightclub and dance floor. The restaurant is celebrating over 36 years as Richmond’s dining and entertainment spot.

The building, formerly a tobacco warehouse, has been standing since 1866. The restaurant took over in July of 1977, when Jearald Cable saw the possible success in starting a restaurant in Shockoe Slip. All brickwork, heavy beams, and columns that customers see today are original to the building.

The Tobacco Company Restaurant’s menu is filled with delicious options, each one never failing to disappoint. The specials are also always spectacular. However, there are a few delights on the main menu that the restaurant’s regulars find to be go-tos.

Fried Yellow Tomatoes

The Fried Yellow Tomatoes are easy to please. A vegetarian appetizer comprised of southern-style vine ripened yellow tomatoes, breaded and deep fried, served with roasted red pepper vinaigrette and pesto mayonnaise.

Seared Scallops

The Seared Scallops are not only a customer favorite, but a staff favorite as well. The pan seared diver sea scallops are served over roasted green pepper risotto, finished with caramelized grape tomato cream sauce and crisp flat bread.

Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef

The Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef has been a signature entrée item for the past 37 years. The dish consists of 12 ounces of slowly roasted prime rib served with au jus, baked potato, and vegetable du jour.

Butter Cake

Diners should not leave The Tobacco Company Restaurant without ordering dessert. The Butter Cake is the restaurant’s signature dessert. The moist cake is blended with extra butter and cream cheese before baking, served warm, and topped with vanilla ice cream, strawberries, and chocolate sauce.

Although these signature dishes are fan favorites, you will be satisfied with anything off The Tobacco Company Restaurant menu. Go to www.thetobaccocompany.com to make a reservation today.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
