My trip to Blacksburg was absolutely invigorating and exactly what I needed during my off rotation. I got to see my boyfriend, which is the biggest bonus of all! Although I did not attend the homecoming game, I still partook in several Tech traditions–mostly food and local eats. I also took the time to look at some new establishments that are new favorites. I am pretty jealous with what I found and almost angry that these places were not open when I was around.
Amazing fish and chips at an Irish pub that had just recently opened
A half dozen cupcakes from Gobble Cakes, a new cupcakerie in town! They were delicious, and worth every penny
Late-night jumbo slices from Benny’s–I am so thankful this place was not around when I was a student because the freshman 15 would have easily become the freshman 50.
A treat for the road, a box of macarons from Our Daily Bread Bakery
Here’s to Hokie Love and a Full Stomach!
