Spring socializing

It's spring and, with the weather warming up, socializing in Charlottesville has become much more appealing. There's no need to drag your winter coat into college bars or to trudge through snow in 3-inch heels. Nope, now is what I like to call sit-on-the-patio-in-a-sundress time. And, thanks to Darden's social organizers, there are activities aplenty.

Yesterday, for example, about 40 to 50 Darden students and their significant others boarded buses to visit the local wineries and breweries. My girlfriends and I opted for a tour of the Barboursville and Horton Vineyards. On the 6-hour tour, we learned more than we'll probably ever need to know about Charlottesville viniculture, sipped glasses of Chardonnay and returned home exhausted. Up next? Easter brunch at the Horse and Hound. Not a bad way to enjoy a Central Virginia spring.
