Massanutten Resort to celebrate lunar eclipse

massanutten resortMassanutten Resort invites travelers to celebrate the last total lunar eclipse of the decade on Sunday, Jan. 20, with a signature Blood Moon Mary – the resort’s signature, house-made Bloody Mary – at Base Camp, the on-site indoor/outdoor bar and grill.

Created with Jalapeno-infused tequila, jalapeno, tomato and lime juices, a hint of horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, a dash of salt and pepper, and garnished with a celery stick, olives, and Old Bay rim, this refreshing drink is a great way to mark one of the most unique eclipses in history.

Massanutten Resort boasts 6,000 acres of mountain fun for families, couples and adventure travelers. Conveniently located in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Massanutten is a premier, all-season resort that’s easily accessible from major cities and offers snow sports, farm-to-table dining, and a host of amenities that cater to travelers near and far.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
