Will run for chocolate…and wine

23 Nov

Mostly for wine.
Remember that blog I had where I told you about races in the area and showed you pictures?
Yeah me either apparently.

Today I did the Race for Chocolate in Williamsburg.  It was their inaugural year, so there were a few hiccups.  Hiccup numero uno was they only had one table for packet pick up….big problem.  People were lined up and circled around trying to get inside the building.  Because of this they had to delay the start of the races.  Not a huge problem, just a little annoying.

Santa led all of the races, so that was pretty snazzy.


The course was really pretty.  It went down a back road with little farms, and dried up corn stalks…and wineries.

After the race was when the wine and chocolate were involved.  Unfortunately I didn’t get either.  Both lines were super long.  They only had, from what I could tell, two people at the wine tasting.  The line for the chocolate was just too long and I was cold.  Soooo, I went into Williamsburg and got a sandwich from the Cheese Shop, life is hard.   If you go to the Cheese Shop and don’t get some of their House Dressing, I don’t think we can be friends.

It was a pretty perfect day in Williamsburg, so I enjoyed my sandwich and coffee al fresco.  I even had my own private acoustic guitar concert.  So, maybe it wasn’t just for me…but I can think it was!

Some prankster called Ninja Art added these minions to the trees in Merchants Square.  They were so cute!  The artist(s) took googly eyes and Sharpie to draw on lemons to make them look like minions.  Pretty smart eh?
