This event is going to be massive! Saturday, July 12, The Cheats Movement has teamed up with Hardywood for their Virginia Blackberry Release. Hardywood is located at 2408 Ownby Lane, RVA. The tasting room/park opens at 2 PM. We have set up an amazing evening for everyone, of course their will be amazing Hardywood beer, food trucks, and their will be some great (I mean great) musical performances, starting at 5 PM with Radio B, 6 PM Photosynthesizers, and 7 PM The Big Payback (James Brown Tribute Band). This is not your typical music line-up for Hardywood. As you can see – it has a heavy Cheats Movement Family vibe. And that’s what it’s all about – bringing people together and highlighting our amazing culture. The event is free (not the beer), the park is open to all, come out and have a great time with the family tomorrow. #WESEEIT
