January Luncheon at Michie Tavern

Join old and new friends in welcoming the new year on January 19 at historic Michie Tavern. Social time begins at 11:30 with lunch buffet at noon.

This day’s speaker is Helen Flamini, president of the Charlottesville Botanical Garden. In 2008, she founded the McIntire Botanical Garden non-profit with a mission to create a beautiful public garden in McIntire Park. She continues working toward that goal today, and this luncheon affords an opportunity to learn all the details of planning and implementation of this new area attraction.

Established in 1784 by Scotsman William Michie, the Michie Tavern served as the social center of its community and provided travelers with lodging as well as food and drink. Michie Tavern’s dining room, the Ordinary, is a converted slave house that features Hearty Midday Fare offered by servers in period attire. The buffet is based on 18th Century southern recipes.

The cost is $21 per person and checks must be received by January 15. Check your newsletter for details. For more information, email cvillenewcomersinfo@gmail.com
