Lot 12~October 2016 Happenings

The air has turned crisp and the nights cool. October is glorious in Berkeley Springs. This weekend, October 8th & 9th, is a favorite of many as the Apple Butter Festival takes place in downtown. There is something for everyone, a turtle race, a beard contest, bluegrass music in the park, a parade complete with high school bands and floats and of course, the pig calling contest shouldn’t be missed. There are dozens of craft and food vendors tucked in every corner of the town. The complete schedule can be viewed so you can plan your weekend!

We know that after a full day of festival-going, you’ll need to relax and be pampered. Our bar is open at 4pm on Saturday and Sunday and dinner service begins at 5pm. Calling ahead for reservations is a must this Holiday Weekend for sure! Our new Autumn Dinner Menu launched last week to rave reviews with items such as: Coq au Vin, Pumpkin Risotto and Butternut Squash soup. Our menu changes to reflect the season and this menu embraces the fall harvest for sure.

One of the highlights of cooler weather is the return of our Wine Tasting Events. These intimate, affordable and enlightening evenings are typically held on the third Friday of month, October through March. This kickoff evening is no exception…mark your calendars for Friday, October 21st from 6 until 8pm. We enjoy seeing our guests make new friends during this casual evening which is located upstairs in our private dining room. Lovely wines, delicious snacks and friendly people-it’s a perfect combination.

Twice a year, many artists from Berkeley Springs open their studios to the public for a self-guided tour. October 22nd & 23rd marks the Berkeley Springs Studio Tour Weekend! You can drive through the countryside and visit artists while they display their expertise with printmaking, painting, hand-forged metal work, glass-making, pottery and more. The maps and brochures are available throughout the town (including Lot 12), pick one up and set off to enjoy the fall foliage and beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork. This is a great way to begin the Holiday shopping season too!

From spas to hiking, shopping to biking, there are so many ways to spend your days relaxing in and around Berkeley Springs. We look forward to seeing you during your next stay in our beautiful little town!

A Lot 12 Wine Tasting!! Friday, October 21st beginning at 6pm until 8pm, we will be hosting the first in the series of Autumn Wine Tastings…call soon as seating is very limited!

Most guests enjoy a light dinner afterwards and if so, please reserve a table or bar seat ahead of time!

If you’ve never experienced the Apple Butter Festival, now is the time. This weekend, Oct 8th & 9th, our small town bursts with activities of days-gone-by. Thousands of people come every year to eat, play and shop. For 42 years this event has showcased the best of our community and this year is no exception!

Our new Autumn Dinner menu is a treat worth the drive to Berkeley Springs!Although Lot 12 will not be located in the festival, pepperoni bombs, soups and sweets will be available during the day.

We’ve definitely been experiencing warmer summer-like weather these past few weeks, our gardens and our souls are feeling gratified. The Berkeley Springs Farmers Market has been bustling and the transition from mostly plants to fresh produce is happening! Mock’s Greenhouses are already harvesting their hydroponic tomatoes, lettuces and cucumbers, Glascock’s Produce is harvesting their gorgeous strawberries and many others are displaying a nice assortment of greens, kale and spinach among other delicious spring/summer crops. There are still plenty of herbs, hanging baskets, vegetable and bedding plants, so it’s not too late for those! Organic milk in returnable glass jars? Organic, free range eggs? Yep, the market has that! Support a local farm…it helps keep our community sustainable!

Chef Damian continues to provide an unsurpassed Market Lunch!

“Hey Girlfriend” Weekend is the first weekend in June in Berkeley Springs and we’re having a Saturday Afternoon Wine Tasting on June 6th!

As a special “Girlfriend” highlight, local artist Maya Fredo (aka the Crystal Chick) will be here as well displaying and creating her one-of-a-kind beautiful crystal artwork/jewelry during the tasting so you can browse, buy or have her create a special wire-wrapped crystal while you relax and sip incredible wine! Call ahead please, space is limited!

You could also stop in at the Berkeley Springs Farmers Market and pick up lunch…grilled sausage sandwich, pork bbq, smoked baby back ribs! For an extra special gift…stop in to the Heath Studio/Gallery and choose a whimsical painting of Jonathan Heath’s! Business hours are Saturday & Sunday from 11-5 each week!
We love when fresh, local produce begins to arrive at our door! And there really is nothing like a still-warm-from-the garden strawberry (except maybe the still-warm tomato). The herb gardens are lush, gardens are planted and we look forward to all that Summer brings to Berkeley Springs.

Once again, we are a proud sponsor of the Summer Concerts in the Park, FREE concerts every Saturday beginning in July, 5:30-7pm downtown all Summer long.
