I'm down with something, but prefer the east side of the mountain.
There is the Griffin Tavern in Flint Hill.
Headmasters Pub in Sperryville. Actually Sperryville has a few options and with a nice market. They have a place that does great brick/wood fire pizza. Couple breweries.
I think by in large the ride out for a meet and greet would prob the the majority of the ride this time as we all come from some distance.
