We drove about 2 and half hours to Michie's Tavern in Charlottesville, Virginia. We also got to see a former Hongwanji Mission School student named Sheridan and her parents who moved to North Carolina. We ate lunch at the tavern. They served chicken, pork and beans, mashed potatoes, corn bread, biscuits, stewed tomatoes, and dessert. Everyone loved the chicken. Some people ate the equivalent of 3 whole chickens. I (Tanner) loved the food they served especially the Pork and Beans.
We had a tour of the Tavern. We got to learn how to dance like they did in colonial times. We also saw kitchen appliances like the corn peeler. We learned how to play some of the games. Tanner was smoking the pipe but don't tell his mom. We saw other buildings like the kitchen, the necessary, the well, smokehouse, and the gift shop.
