Holiday draws to a close with a final round of drinks on Memorial Day May 26

The Memorial Day 2014 holiday draws to a close with a final round of drinks on Monday, May 25. After three full days of revelry, can you take one more? Take it easy today, and rest up; tomorrow is a work day. But after you are all rested up, take one final holiday weekend mountain drive and enjoy just one more Virginia wine or micro-brew…or enjoy one of each! The holiday isn’t officially over until midnight.

Laying off the sauce? No worries. There’s plenty of other ways to celebrate your Memorial Day weekend in Charlottesville. Grow your brain cells with a historic walking tour or take in an art show. Ride the Hatton Ferry in Scottsville or visit a local American castle. Pick strawberries or select other fresh produce at local farmers markets dispersed through the region. You can even attend a Mystery Dinner Theater, a local flea market or an antique car show.
