RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Peculiar, perplexing and grotesque - that's how the Virginia Historical Society describes their new Bizarre Bits Exhibit. Featuring items like Jefferson Davis' cigar and an etching of Robert E. Lee in tree fungus, the historical society offers free admission Tuesday through Sunday. 

"I think this will appeal to everyone. One of the things that appeals about this is there's no order to it, you go from one object to the next and you have to be thinking what in the world is coming next," said Bill Rasmussen, Lead Curator for VHS. 

Fairfield Commons is hosting the 9th annual Back to School Blowout where students can get free school supplies. The event will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday with games, prizes and free children's books. Kool Smiles will also be providing free dental checks. 

Two things to keep an eye on for Monday - if you're in the market to microchip your pet and don't want to spend $100, the Richmond SPCA will do it for 20. This event is from 4-7 p.m. and you need to schedule an appointment in advance. Also, if you're looking for an inexpensive way to eat out, all of the Capital Ale House locations offer a half pound certified Angus burger for $1. This goes from 4 p.m. until 1 a.m. and the purchase of a beverage is required 

You might want to look in your closet for this next deal. Wednesday the 18th, Puritan Cleaners will clean your pants for free. You can bring one pair of pants to any Puritan Cleaners from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and they'll be laundered for free, no strings attached.
