We knew Richmond was a great party town. Now, it’s official.

A new TV comedy travel series called “101 Places to Party Before You Die” will feature Richmond as one of the titular places on an upcoming episode July 28.

The truTV unscripted travel series follows comedians and friends Adam Pally (known for his work in “Happy Endings” and “The Mindy Project”) and Jon Gabrus (from the Netflix film “Game Over, Man!”) on three-day weekend escapes from their families in cities across the United States.

The synopsis for the Richmond episode is: “Where else can you get a smash burger, ride in a tuktuk, & find spiritual LPs? Turns out it’s Richmond, Virginia.”

On the show, Pally describes Richmond as “the Brooklyn of the South.” And Gabrus says it’s the Austin of the East.

Like an ‘80s drama on NBC, “The Bear” makes everything count. The cast – filled with many flavors – makes it immensely relatable. It is, for lack of a better comparison, the one show Steven Bochco might have wished he had created.
