It was during finals, which were postponed for a day, mainly because professors could not get to campus. I can't even remember how we learned they were being rescheduled, being the pre-Internet age. Probably a note on the classroom door.Impressive. Did they cancel classes? Or was it one of those "first time they canceled classes since the civil war" events?
I walked through the Moore Hall archway at Homecoming to specifically check out that area, and I don't remember. I lived on the 4th floor of Moore my sophomore year, it was great, there are only four rooms up there.Thanks again for posting the pictures.
A couple thins I noticed were the cars, and several VW bugs. That’s what I had, and it was
pretty good in the snow.
Also there is a bike rack in one of the photos. Do they still have those?
I had a fire engine orange VW bug. The bug stored the battery under the back seat, where the battery acid leaked. The floors rusted out. I had convinced a date to come back to my dorm. Taking a short cut through that same parking lot, I drove through a massive mud puddle, which congregated next to Pitt field. Water curled through the floor, and in a pincer, surrounded and engulfed my date. I laughed uncontrollably. Incensed, she insisted I take her to her dorm. She never spoke to me again.It's a Vega. Belonged to a fraternity brother of mine who is now a successful attorney, splitting his time between Chicago and Florida.
There were about 7-8 of us in Pika who had Vegas during the 72-76 period.
Yeah, driving in Richmond in snow was always an adventure. We snowbelt Yankees knew how to but the locals were somewhat challenged.I was a towny and it was soph year. I believe heard about school shutting down from WLEE 600 AM
which was good local news station. Think it was also broadcast station for Spider sports. Let me tell you
coming down faculty drive or boatright from three chopt
was not a lot of fun either.
Just getting off of campus was a good trick in the snow. But, somehow we always made it to the bar. LOLYeah, driving in Richmond in snow was always an adventure. We snowbelt Yankees knew how to but the locals were somewhat challenged.
Can't imagine anything much worse than an icy, slick Snake Road.
And the Hitchin' Post, and that place on the north side of Patterson near Libbie.Phil’s was conveniently not far.
cheap beer and an order of shoestring friesAnd the Hitchin' Post, and that place on the north side of Patterson near Libbie.
I still go to the Continental (Phil's) every time I'm in town. It obviously has changed, but it's still pretty darn close to what it was in my era.
Wood Hall I think they were also known for their club sandwiches. I have been in there once in the last few years when back in town for a game. Remember taking a date to see Rocky at the Westhampton Theater and then walking next door to Phil's. Those were the days.cheap beer and an order of shoestring fries
When i was 7 my mother worked at the Muhleman Building. So, during the summer I'd cross the street for the Sailor sandwich....Oh, the club is still my go-to. They also still have the Sailor Sandwich.
Brings back good memories every time I visit there. And the shops are all filled and some housing is being rehabbed in that neighborhood, which my Richmond friends tell me is "hot.'
The Westhampton is now a Taste restaurant, which is pretty good, BTW.Wood Hall I think they were also known for their club sandwiches.
