Glad that we had not eaten earlier and planned to eat at the Michie Tavern (thinking it was a small restaurant in Charlottesville) ... NOT! I know I could've read about it, and honestly, at one point I probably did BUT it all begins to run together as I make my plans for 6 weeks. This one dropped through the cracks. I was going on recommendations by a friend, Kate Cordell, and was so glad we did.
Michie Tavern was on the way to Monticello -- and, yes, a place to eat ... an old tavern moved to this area many years ago, piece by piece. Served up southern style cooking and dining along with a tour of the original home which back then was tavern, house, and boarding house. Quite interesting.
Here's MICHIE TAVERN, in Charlottesville, VA
Hard to believe that we were so tired, we didn't even take photos. It was spectacular .. take my word. We were ready, ONCE AGAIN, to head home -- it was about 3pm ... and chill for a while. We had Rockin' Ridgeview still to do that night!!!!
