ROCKFISH RED 4 MILER
With our first 5K under our belt, we're so excited to announce the inaugural running of the Rockfish Red 4 Miler! With the days getting longer and warmer, runners can experience a Friday night "group run" and post-race party and picnic with family and friends. The race starts and finishes in the vineyard and winds its way through some of the most scenic back roads in central Virginia.

TINS FOR TUNES CONCERT SERIES & FOOD DRIVE May
Featuring The Jim Waive and the Young Divorcees
A Charlottesville favorite, Jim Waive combines his no-pick, percussive style on guitar with some of the most compelling lyrics in honky tonk. His smoky voice delivers songs laden with force, fervor and heart. You can catch a glimpse of his Tidewater roots in the fire and brimstone melodies, and you can feel his love overflow for his Divorcees: Charlie Bell, Anna Matijasic Hennesey and Jen Fleisher.

TINS FOR TUNES CONCERT SERIES & FOOD DRIVE August
Featuring The Atkinsons
The Atkinsons meld roots, country, mountain, and rock music into their own style of rambling swing rock & roll. Heartfelt story-telling is at the core of The Atkinsons and is complemented with three-part harmonies layered over mandolin, fiddle, drums, bass, and electric guitars. With influences ranging from Old 97s to Green Day to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to Drive By Truckers, the sound ends up being quite a musical stew.

Admission:
$10.00 for adults at the door, $5.00 if you bring at least one non-perishable food donation for our local food pantry. Kids 18 and under and Cardinal Point Cooperative members get in free. Bring a picnic, or check our Facebook page to see if we'll have a food truck on site for the event.

Wine VS. Beer Throw-down at the Jefferson Hotel
101 Franklin St.
Richmond, VA
Wine vs. Beer; Neighbor vs. Neighbor. The Contenders: The delicious brews from Blue Mountain Brewery face off against the delectable wines from Cardinal Point Winery. (The real contenders? Taylor Smack, Brewmaster at Blue Mountain, and Tim Gorman, Winemaker at Cardinal Point—there will be no living with either of them for several weeks after.) The Format: 5 courses, 5 beers, 5 wines. The Real Winner? You—should you decide to attend! Chef Patrick Ehemann, Executive Chef at T.J.’s in the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, is preparing a five-course dinner that promises to make everyone who partakes forget what the fight was all about anyway.
 
The Afton Mountain Beer vs. Wine Dinner Throwdown will be held at TJ’s at The Jefferson on Thursday, April 17, at 6:00pm. Tickets are $50.00 per person, plus tax and gratuity. To make reservations, contact TJ’s Restaurant at 804-649-4672 or email jonathan.kibiloski@jeffersonhotel.com.
