It’s the weekend of Final Exercises at the University of Virginia!

Thousands of students will celebrate their achievements this weekend by turning their tassels with friends and families on grounds with events both Saturday and Sunday. While this is an incredibly exciting time, there will be many people in the area that want to avoid the University area at all costs – traffic will be crazy!

For those that want to steer clear of the area this weekend, we’ve compiled a list of hang out spots serving local beer and wine in various areas in and around Charlottesville.

Check out our list below and, to the graduates – CONGRATULATIONS!
