This weekend we hosted an 18 person slumber party at our house, friends flung back into our orbit from New Orleans and New York, Washington, Richmond and Los Angeles, all to come see us and the horse races, to toast champagne, try their hand at moonshine, eat fried chicken and enjoy the glorious southern spring in all of its almost-unbelievable beauty. 57 more words
This is the weekend us wahoos (UVa students and grads) look forward to all year long. It’s the Foxfield Races!!!!!!!
Foxfields is a day-long event on Saturday in which everyone gets dressed up in their finest Southern derby gear and tailgates and drinks :-) Technically, the races are steeplechase, which means that unlike the Kentucky Derby, the Foxfield races have horses jumping fences and ditches and generally traversing the many intervening obstacles. 341 more words
