The best events to peel you off your couch

The Chesapeake Bay does so many great things for us. It gives us a place to swim, it gives us beautiful scenery, and it gives us that seafood that all of our out-of-state friends envy. Show the bay a little appreciation, why don’t you? Celebrate the Bay: with wine, live music, and so many Chesapeake tastes. Friday, June 28, 6-10 p.m. at New Kent Winery.
