Every day of the week offers fresh ways to have fun in Charlottesville. From live music to wine tasting to taco specials and polo, we've rounded up seven ways to stay entertained from Monday to Sunday.
There’s no dreading Monday when you’ve got plans to hang out on the Quirk rooftop! Watch the sunset from the poshest perch in downtown Charlottesville while sipping a craft cocktail or glass of wine.
Fill your belly with half-off tacos at Asado Tacos and Wings. Stick to more traditional filling or choose from tantalizing specialty tacos like the honey sriracha shrimp and the double smoked bacon and chicken.
The Graduate is an irresistible destination on Wednesdays thanks to an all-night special on wine ($6 a glass!) and trivia night. Go with a group to improve your odds of winning. It’s not just a wine special on Wednesdays. Cheese boards are $9. Talk about “gaming” the system!
Celebrate the day before Friday at Carter Mountain Orchard. Different musical acts and food trucks are featured each week. You can also pick up Carter Mountain Wine and Bold Rock Cider while you’re there. The view of Charlottesville and the Blue Ridge Mountains beyond will take your breath away. Not bad for a Thursday! $10.
There’s no better way to kick off the weekend than listening to outdoor live music with friends at Potter’s Craft Cider on a beautiful evening. Sip a Passionfruit Mosaic Cider while listening to talented local acts like Chamomile and Whiskey or Travis Elliott. Bring the weekend on!
Galloping hooves are the soundtrack, the Blue Ridge Mountains are the backdrop, and King Family wines are the river that flows through it all. Polo matches are played each Sunday in one of Charlottesville’s most glorious settings. Pro-tip for a perfect Sunday: plan on brunch at the Oakhurst Inn before heading out to King Family.
