Summer Tasting & BBQ at Skybar!

Please join us as we taste wine from around the world to come back to our Virginia backyard for some chef-driven picnic food. Commonwealth's Chef, John Shanesy is joining us again and he'll be grilling on the rooftop. We'll taste wine from France, Germany, Italy and the United States, nosh on deviled eggs, grilled oysters, pulled pork sliders, and more. As a bonus, we'll have live piano from Nick Berkin!

More importantly, as we eat and drink well, we'll have the opportunity to help others: We'll be raffling off the brand-new gas grill that Chef will be cooking on to benefit Sin Barreras, a local non-profit that provides support to the immigrant community of Charlottesville. Raffle tickets will be $10 and available to purchase the night of. We'll clean the grill before we deliver it, we promise.

Tickets are capped at 4 per purchase, and should sell out quickly! Get Tickets here!

Date: Thursday, July 25th – 5:30-8pm

Location: Commonwealth Skybar - 422 E. Main St. - On the Rooftop!
