Slideshow: Hard Hat Happy Hour at old Caravati’s in Manchester


A chilly autumn breeze didn’t dampen the mood Wednesday evening as Richmond BizSense hosted the final Hard Hat Happy Hour of 2022.

Presented by Sands Anderson, the event drew a crowd of 200 to the old Caravati’s building at 104 E. 2nd St., where a group made up of Justin Paley of Catalyst Development Co., Nolen Blackwood of Blackwood Development, Ali Semir of James River Housing Partners, and Ralph Reahard of Real Property Management are converting the property into dozens of apartments in an historic tax credit rehab.

Enjoy the slideshow above from photographer Tom Veazey and stay tuned in 2023 for another slate of Hard Hat Happy Hour events.

Thanks to everyone who supported BizSense events this year and a big thanks to the Hard Hat Happy Hour sponsors below:
