    The Virginian is a college bar. Come here and get drunk. If you want to critique the food don't. Go dt.

    This place is kind of awful, but lots of people go anyway to stand on tables and sweat on each other.

    Great for Sunday brunch :) enjoy an omelette, mimosa/Bloody Mary. Tend to be less of a wait than pigeon hole down the block. Also nice to sit outside when weather permits

    Start with the pepper jack Mac n' Cheese and wash it down with a Devils Backbone Vienna Lager, a smooth local favorite.

    My college years would have been SO much better if I had known they serve Starr Hill The Love on tap.
