HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A new West End restaurant and music venue is ready to take the stage. The Tin Pan will open for business Feb. 14 at 8982 Quioccasin Road in Quioccasin Station shopping center. Owners Lisa Harrison and Kevin Liu have converted the 5,000-square-foot former Don Pedro Mexican Restaurant into a space that can hold 150 and has what they call cabaret-style seating. Harrison said she’s lined up a mix of national, regional and local acts to perform at The Tin Pan. Ticket prices range from $5 to $35.
