Summer days, they exist purely to pay tribute to friendship, laughter, music and fun, all of which find their perfect placement here at The Broadberry. This past Sunday marked our first “After Brunch Patio Party”. The venue was transformed into a memory from one’s youth as DJ Skruff and DJ Ragz took things back to the good old days, when “the Roots” and “Naughty by Nature” flooded our stereos and our hearts. Even those opposed to shaking their tail feathers couldn’t help but tap their feet to the infectious sounds.
We are privileged here at The Broadberry to work with Underground RVA, an up and coming promotions group co-founded by DJ Skruff himself, whose purpose is to bring attention to unique events in the RVA area. It was through this collaboration that the idea for the “After Brunch Patio Party” was birthed. It was our unanimous desire to keep the party going with great music and great people who just weren’t ready to quit once brunch was over.
Patrons enjoyed a little fun in the sun as competition rose during outdoor games. Friends socialized at our patio tables, and bees were soon found infiltrating the venue as well in the form of an in- house concoction. Consisting of Belle Isle Moonshine, honey-habanero, pineapple, and club soda, this delicious drink with a bite is appropriately named the “bee sting”.
Those who attended were eligible for entry into a raffle. The winners received tickets to a show at The Broadberry, as well as an exclusive Underground RVA T-shirt. Congratulations to Marcella Coleman and Dax Ellison, who were the lucky winners at this week’s drawing. The raffle will be synonymous with the “After Brunch Patio Party” so come on out for great music and drinks, good company and your chance to win!
