    My first purchase of the year was a flight to Roanoke for the PSU-VT game.

    Is there anything worth a shit in Roanoke #Virginia Tech Hokies?

    Minor league baseball team, and a hockey team. There is also some outdoorsy stuff, but I can't think of anything that'll help you out much right now.

    Yes we're staying at the Hyatt by the airport. No hotels left in Blacksburg.

    Blacksburg seems to have even fewer hotels than State College.

    Yeah it's gotten bad. Don't really mess with Roanoke so can't say. Hit up some of the VT message boards and they'll be able to tell you. Hopefully it's a night game as it should be and you'll have the whole day to check out the campus, downtown, and so forth.

    I always send people to The Homeplace https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-homeplace-catawba when they visit. Pay $15 (2 meats from fried chicken, roast beef, or ham) or $16 (all 3 meats) and they bring you out all the Southern food you can eat until you can't eat anymore. Gorgeous location, great food. Highly recommend.

    It's about 20 minutes away from your Hyatt but you literally just hop on 3 highways (581 to I-81 to 311) to get there, not really complicated or anything.

    Got a real good deal on the hotel, didn’t expect anything around being an airport hotel. This sounds perfect. Is this heading towards Blacksburg by chance?

    you actually can sneak into Blacksburg the back way using the road The Homeplace is on but it's a one-lane winding road, much more of the scenic route. I would give yourself plenty of time for all of this to happen just because The Homeplace is usually busy and you're also going to be crazy full when finishing. if we get a night game or even 3:30, I'd maybe suggest The Homeplace for lunch and then you can take your time and casually drive in to Blacksburg and poke around before gametime. you really can't get lost too much, if you look on Google Earth or something you just stay on the road (Blacksburg Rd/Catawba Rd) and then you'd only need directions once you finally hit Blacksburg proper).

    the benefit of this is avoiding I-81 traffic on gameday, which is shitty and that stretch of 81 is dangerous to boot. if you find yourself eating elsewhere or whatever, I'd suggest heading to Blacksburg via 460, which will take you a bit longer (drive through Salem, out into Shawsville/Elliston via 460 and up the mountains into Christiansburg then you'll meet 81 traffic and finish taking 460 into Blacksburg with them for the last bit) but it's a lot safer and virtually never clogged or slowed. sounds more complicated than it is, once you hit Main St. in Salem you basically just follow that into Christiansburg, merge onto Main St there then like a mile later merge back onto 460 and follow it to your turnoff into campus.

    Man the parallels between Blacksburg and State College are incredible. That basically sounds just like trying to drive into SC. Pretty ridiculous we’ve never played each other.

    I hope it ends up being a night game, Lane at night is a bucket list game.

    I’m pretty sure it was V-R-B-O during the Citrus Bowl last year. I was there and do not recall them ever saying “verbo.”
