Depart DC: Summer Sippin’ in the Sun


Summer is my favorite season because there is so much to do and the weather (usually) cooperates.  I would much prefer heat to cold so the summer is an ideal time of year for me to enjoy the outdoors!  If I can be outside AND sipping on one of my favorite beverages with some of my favorite people then all the better!!

This weekend there are a plethora of events:
Right here in my stompin’ grounds of Leesburg, the NOVA Summer BrewFest takes place at Morven Park on June 23-24.  There will be live music, food, arts and crafts and loads of beer from 50 breweries from across the nation!  Tix are $20 if purchased in advance and $30 at the gate for “drinkers”…ticket price includes commerative tasting glass and 4 tasting tickets.  Additional tasting tickets can be purchased for $1 each.  The DDs and other non-“drinkers” can purchase tix for $15 in advance and $20 at the gate.
