For many of us, we will spend this week traveling, eating, and talking to relatives we haven’t seen since last year. But, for the days you’re in town, here are some cool things to do right here in Williamsburg:
Featured Event This Week!
(in other words, I will be there covering it for the blog, so come join if you want)
Trivia at Green Leafe – 8pm
An oldie but a goodie. Questions are all written and hosted by local trivia buffs and the questions can be pretty hard- but hey, why do trivia if it’s not challenging? Usually there are 5 rounds: the 4th round is a picture round (you get a sheet of paper with pictures on it and have to identify the item/character/etc) and 5th round is a music round- hear the song, name the artist and title of the song. Also- Green Leafe runs burger specials on this night, they are $5 or $6. Fries are extra, though.
Wednesday and Friday, and then every day for awhile
Ice skating! (click on the link above for hours) I’ve heard it’s a synthetic rink, FYI . . .
Daily Admission (includes Skate Rental)
Child 5 and under: FREE
Youth 6-17 and Senior 55+: $5 for residents/ $7 for non-residents
Adult: $7 for residents/ $8
Thursday (and Friday and Saturday)
Now, I have never been to this, but I have always wanted to go! Best of all, it’s FREE for Williamsburg/JCC/York County residents (bring your driver’s license with your address on it):
Long before microwaves, electric stoves and refrigerators, food was prepared in clay pots and iron kettles over hot coals and preserved by smoking, salt curing and pickling. This Thanksgiving holiday, explore foodways of 17th- and 18th-century Virginia during “Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia,” a three-day event beginning on Thanksgiving Day.
If you have been, please leave a short review in the comments- thanks!
Scottish fiddle and guitar music by some of this area’s best traditional musicians (John Turner is awesome, if you haven’t heard him). With your Good Neighbor Pass, this *should* be $6 (regular price $8).
Also, Merchant’s Square will be positively hopping this weekend with things to do so- if you are raring to go for Christmas in Williamsburg, go and check out the market, all the pretty greenery and red ribbons, and the “A Christmas Carol”-in-a-box. If you are not ready for Christmas? Stay away- you’ve been warned!
Everyone please travel safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all of you! Especially my fabulous followers!
