UVA (University of Virginia) Graduation Weekend

May 21st, 2012 by alanpyles

What an unbelievable weekend! Even with expanded dining hours and both the Tavern and Dining room being seated to the max- we filled our dinner reservations two weeks in advance (Already have filled the dining room for 2013!). We had a full staff on hand, and enjoyed a very smooth (but tiring of course) evening. Congratulations to this weeks grads. Earlier this month we honored (and decorated for) James Madison Univ- This weekend, UVA and next weekend we conclude May’s tributes with Blue Ridge School- Go Barons!

Mothers Day

May 21st, 2012 by alanpyles

We enjoyed another sold out event- Mothers Day Champagne Brunch. The omelet station opened at 10am with 25-30 other guest selection. Throughout the day, items were exchanged bringing more of a lunch fare…but the custom omelets kept coming. A special thanks to our (now annual) Chef Trevor for his assistance. Kaye’s decorations provided the added touch to make this a perfect day. Thanks all “Mom’s” for making this day worthwhile.

The 7th Annual Discover Virginia wine festival is just down the street on route 33 in Ruckersville. This is a great, small intimate festival- one where you can “belly up to the bar” and taste the wines, talk with the booth friends and enjoy some music…up close and personal!
