This is just a small portion of all the events that are available! There’s the market, movies, and the art fair on Saturday . . . check out the calendar for more options. Below are some musical happenings I just had to point out!
Friday June 19:
Wine Night at Saude Creek Vineyards
Although Saude Creek has these most Friday nights in the summer, this one is special because there will be a group from Young Emerging Professionals of Williamsburg there. You don’t have to be a member to attend, but you do have the opportunity to meet a group of fun people. Or, you can stick to your own possy and just do your own thing! I went last year and it was a blast- good music, good company, beautiful setting, cornhole, wine, food- a veritable Eden. They let you bring your own picnic- it was a really great bargain! And the setting is just gorgeous. Friday the featured musical performer is ST Lite (they describe themselves as “acoustic with a KICK”) and there will be crepes there!
(PS- if you can’t get there Friday night, they also have the same thing happening on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 2-5pm)
Saturday June 20:
Amy Kucharik at Aromas
How do you feel about quirky ukelele music? Amy Kucharik is pretty much a master at this particular genre, and she’s playing for tips at Aromas Saturday at 8pm. The video above showcases her band, but I’m not sure how much of the band will be with her Saturday (I’d be willing to bet it will just be her- if you know for sure, let me know!). If you like Molasses Creek– a regular at First Night– you’ll like Amy- the sound is 1920s bluesy and ragtimish. Aromas is always a fun, relaxed atmosphere on the weekends, and her music sounds like it will be fun and carefree to listen to.
Sunday June 21
Tony Bob Merritt at Alewerks
After (or while) you catch up with dad, enjoy a Sunday afternoon at Alewerks with live music 2-5 pm by Tony Bob Merritt (“one-man acoustic stylings”). The scene at Alewerks is really fun- super chill, but also really busy. Everyone is really friendly, and the beer is EXCELLENT.
Beyond what you’ve had in bottles and at bars around town, they usually have some small-batch brews they only serve in the tasting room. One word of advice, though- eat before you go, or come not very hungry. Their menu is really limited (at least for now)- don’t plan on having a meal there. Ooh, and apparently they just opened what they’re calling the “Biergarten”- if you go, let us all know how it is!
Have a great time this weekend everyone, and be safe! Don’t forget to check out the calendar for more things to do in Williamsburg!
