Gov’t Mule – August 20, 2014 – Innsbrook After Hours, Richmond, VA Review and Setlist

Warren Haynes and Co. had made it through nine songs and were in the middle of a Drums segment, when concertgoers were told to go to their cars as a bad storm was approaching. Attendees and organizers were hoping the show could continue at some point, but eventually a decision was made after a delay of about an hour to end the concert. "We apologize

Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello – Charlottesville, Virginia

Monticello, located in Charlottesville, Virginia, is the perfect escape for a morning or afternoon. You can’t beat the Virginia countryside and the tour of the home itself is a can’t-miss.

Zocalo – Charlottesville, Virginia

201 E Main St, Charlottesville, VA Latin American $$$ – Entrees $19-27

We were in Charlottesville not so long ago and really loved exploring the area. The city, like Charleston, has plenty of historical sites and also a fun, “hip” scene, too. We spent a lot of time window shopping along the Downtown Mall, and decided there was no better place to have dinner than there.

Zocalo is located right on the main pedestrian street with a huge outdoor patio. Fall is the perfect time for the patio so we waited a few minutes for a table then sat right down for some people watching.

One look at the menu, and Jeffrey and I [...]
