Thirsty Thursday: Virginia Cider Week

Okay, fine, it might have been cider week once before. Kind of recently, now that you mention it. But it's cider week again, gosh darn it—this time in Virginia. From November 9–18, celebrate Virginia hard cider at events from Richmond to Roanoke (and beyond).

If we had to suggest one event, it would be the Hill and Holler Cider Week Celebration, held just outside Charlottesville at Albemarle Ciderworks. On the evening of Sunday, November 11, you'll swill cider from three area cidermakers—Albemarle, Foggy Ridge, and Potter's Craft—paired with food from Virginia chefs Jason Alley, Lee Gregory, and Angelo Vangelopoulos. Apple experts Tom Burford and Gary Nabhan will lay their smarts on you while you munch and sip.

Tickets are $65 each—and did we mention that a portion of the proceeds benefits the SFA? Well, believe it. Thanks, Virginian friends!
