Delta Delta Delta 40th Reunion in Blacksburg
This weekend really felt like a dream. I headed back to Blacksburg with all of my best friends for the Tridelta 40th Reunion. It seemed like we had never left and it was perfect to all be back together in our favorite town. I swear I fell in love with Virginia Tech all over again this weekend and feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful organization.
I took off work on Friday and drove down with Molly. When we got into town, we checked into the Main Street Inn and then headed straight to Sharkey’s for happy hour. Sharkey’s was always our favorite place to get “two dollar doubles” and cheap pitchers.
After a few drinks at Sharkey’s, we walked across the street to TOTS for the reunion registration. This was awesome because we got to see everyone who was back in town for the weekend.
Of course a trip to Blacksburg would not be complete without soy ginger shrimp tacos and a workman’s margarita from Cabo Fish Taco, so we met up with a few more of our closest friends and headed there for dinner before going back to TOTS for the night.
Saturday morning was spent the exact same way as so many hungover college Saturday mornings–at ABP. ABP is the place to be after a night out on the town and it was funny how many alumni had the exact same plan! (I do miss it being included on my meal plan!!)
The five of us headed to War Memorial Chapel for a few pictures with the hokie bird and the deltas. From there, we did a little shopping and then got mimosas and bloodys at Boudreaux’s.
Saturday night was filled with singing, dancing and way too many laughs at the reunion dinner at the Inn at Virginia Tech. Let’s just say the older alumni truly still know how to have a good time. We closed down the Inn and then headed back to TOTS for our last night of rails (Can you guess what our favorite bar in Blacksburg is?!)
I had such an amazing time and could not have asked for a better weekend and am so lucky to call these girls my best friends and sisters. I can only imagine what the 45th reunion will be like! 😉
