The best way to spend 5 years in Charlottesville, VA. And then when I creepily come back to visit.
1. McGrady's Irish Pub
Sofia Case: Miller Lite is good. Or else I wouldn't have been there every Thursday playing Flipcup.
2. Court Square Tavern
Sofia Case: These two extremely sexy guys, Matt and Greg, hang out there a lot. Sometimes they have a French dude with them. I used to go just to stare at them from a distance and swoon.
3. Beer Run
Sofia Case: Free beer tastings on Wednesday, and EXCELLENT selection. Only place you can find Bourbon Barrel Stout in Charlottesville.
4. The Virginian Restaurant
Sofia Case: My college years would have been SO much better if I had known they serve Starr Hill The Love on tap.
5. Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF)
Sofia Case: Home of The Future Fund, a giving circle for 20, 30 and 40-somethings in Charlottesville. Click 'Done' if you've received an e-mail from me about it.
6. Cinema Taco
Sofia Case: Best quesadilla on the mall. Fact.
7. Baja Bean Co.
Sofia Case: My favorite part was always playing Big Buck Hunter upstairs. And the one time I took tequila shots there in celebration of having a snow day at work.
8. Bodo's Bagels
Sofia Case: Guaranteed hangover cure: poppy seed bagel with lox & cream cheese, and a whole day in bed watching online television.
9. Albemarle Baking Company
Sofia Case: Macarons rival Ladurée's.
10. Take It Away
Sofia Case: Who says a sandwich can't be a party? Wheat bread, roast beef, watercress, cheddar & house dressing--For a while I convinced myself all I needed in life was this sandwich and Nip/Tuck.
11. The Box
Sofia Case: One of the few good places to dance in Charlottesville w/o having to pay a cover charge and w/o getting grinded on by strangers. Just don't order a sakebomb because they make them with orange juice :(
12. Miller's Downtown
Sofia Case: The top floor pool table and bar is great for when you're feeling creepy or when you're dressed up as a Black Sabbath song for Halloween and no one gets it. (I speak from experience)
13. Petit Pois
Sofia Case: Power lunch yourself into a food coma with the escargots and steak frites. Yum!
Sofia Case: Bacon-wrapped dates and then some. And by some, I mean the carne asada, cheese plate, assorted pomegranate margaritas and a pitcher of sangria to split between fantastic friends.
15. Crossfit Charlottesville
Sofia Case: The On Ramp program is great for beginners. It's fun to meet all the new people and see how much ass you can kick by the end of the third week. DO IT!
