Since we are based in Blacksburg, VA now, I decided to check out the phenomenon known as Hokie Football.

 

 

I took a stroll through town to Lane Stadium to see what all the hype is about. It seems that every parking lot in town is the site of some tailgate activity.

Tailgating before the big game at VA Tech!

There are no alcoholic beverages allowed in theĀ stadium, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, if you know what I mean…but many people rent spaces in the parking lots and have all sorts of interesting tailgates. Next game I will go around and get you a flavor of the different types. There was a pretty big crowd for the game today, even though it is not a big rivalry or even supposed to be a close game.

 


Lots of students and everyone but me was wearing school colors, either maroon and orange for Tech or black andĀ  gold for App State. There were even some lovely ladies selling special “Stadium Stomper’s”.

These ladies can stomp me anytime!

The real beer in Blacksburg is in the bar’s though. I recommend the Cellar, The Underground, or the Rivermill. All have excellent selections, good food and atmosphere. See ya there!

Lassaz les bon temps roulez!
