Welcome to the third stop on the tailgating tour. On September 18th, I was in Blacksburg for Virginia Tech’s tailgate against ECU. This was my first time in Blacksburg for game day and I was very impressed with what I found.
In doing my research of where to dine in Blacksburg, I was surprised to hear that a campus dining hall was one of student’s favorite places. I was in town for the 3rd stop on my tailgating tour and only had time to eat at one place. I never thought that a campus dining hall would be that place.
I am in Blacksburg,VA, right now getting ready for tomorrow’s third stop on the tailgating tour (Thank you Panera Bread for having free wifi) This is my first time at Virginia Tech, and I am incredibly interested in seeing how Hokie Nation tailgates.
Anyway, the cupcake you see in front you you in not just any cupcake, it is the cupcake that started it all…
Welcome to the second stop on my college tailgating tour. Last week, I brought you tailgating at Ole Miss. This past weekend, I returned to my alma mater, The University of Wisconsin in Madison,WI. I was lucky enough to spend four football seasons in this amazing place, and might be biased, but I believe game day in Madison is tough to beat. Continue Reading
This past weekend, I was in Madison for several reasons. I made my second stop on the tailgating tour, turned 25, and watched two of my friends complete their first Ironman triathlon. The Ironman is 140.6 miles of swimming, biking and running. Pretty much what I need to do after I spend a weekend eating and traveling. I doubt that I will ever attempt an Ironman ( did a half marathon and decided that was enough), but my friends Claire and Katie accomplished this challenge!
I am currently on my way to Madison for the 2nd game of the tailgate tour, got to love free wi fi in airports ( I started this in Charlotte this morning, but am finishing it on my friend’s couch in Madison) .
Today ,I want to share with you one of the Santa Barbara stops that Brett and I made on our Great Western Road Trip. I used to live in Santa Barbara, and after moving away a year ago I almost forgot how beautiful a place it is.
I can’t imagine a restaurant name more enticing than Big Bad Breakfast. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and the adjectives big and bad being used to describe it trigger my curiosity even further. Combine that with the restaurant’s logo including a pig and the fact that the founder is a James Beard winning chef, I think it is obvious to see why I had to give this place a try.
I have had a long time to think about this post. 158 days to be exact. That is the amount of time between my first trip to Taylor Grocery and actually getting to eat at Taylor Grocery. Earlier this year, I was in Oxford and made my first attempt at eating in Taylor. Unfortunately, I arrived to this…Continue Reading
After a few days in Vegas, Brett and I finally arrived in California! Are final destination was Pasadena, but we decided to make a slight detour and visit my old home of Santa Barbara. On our way to Santa Barbara we had to stop at Brett’s favorite California restaurant, and what I think is one of the coolest sea food restaurants in the world ( yes not just the country but the world).
After spending the night in Salt Lake City, Brett and I drove to Las Vegas! This was my second trip to Las Vegas this year. I went at the end of March for my old roommate’s bachelor party. That is all you will hear about that trip, but while there, I had the intention of finding a non chain restaurant to shoot. With no luck back in the spring, this July trip was going to be different. I was going to find something I write a post about.
Salt Lake City. It is the capital of Utah and was home to the 2002 Winter Olympics. I must admit, I only found out that it was the home of the University of Utah a few hours before Brett and I arrived. I would not say Salt Lake City qualifies as a college town, but since I was there, I had to see what great college food I could find. By the way, it was also where High School Musical was filmed. ( you can see that Brett was pretty excited to have found the high school that was used )
