Thursday – Alton Brown

Alton Brown, celebrity chef and host of the Food Network’s “Good Eats” show, is headed back to Richmond with an all-new culinary variety show. According to organizers, “Audiences can expect more comedy, more music, more highly unusual cooking demos and more potentially dangerous sciencey stuff. Prepare for an evening unlike any other, and if Brown calls for volunteers … think twice.” Proof of vaccine or negative test is required. 7:30 p.m. at Dominion Energy Center, 600 E. Grace St. $43.50-$128.50. (800) 514-3849 or Etix.com
