It's Duke’s Mayo's Hot Tomato Summer week in Richmond.

What's happening: All week, 80 — yes, 80 — Richmond restaurants and makers are serving up specials celebrating the best combo since peanut butter and chocolate: Duke's Mayo and tomatoes.

Why it matters: Richmonders will find creative takes on the combo all over town through Sunday, including a fried soft shell BLT at Lillie Pearl, goat and halloumi burekas (a savory pastry) at JewFro and a Detroit-style BLT pizza at Bingo Beer Co.
