VT Drillfield

The center of Virginia Tech's campus is the Drillfield - zig zag across its paths, watch cadet maneuvers, and join Hokies in campus unity events. Rumor has it, it's sinking slowly each year…

We recommend shopping for beer and wine at Blacksburg's mainstay, the Vintage Cellar. Their incredibly knowledgeable staff have been making recommendations and offering weekly tastings for decades. They feature beverages from around the world.

For local eats, try the places the locals have been going to for years. Souvlaki on College Avenue has been serving up delicious Greek food and subs since 1982. The Cellar is a favorite of locals and college students. It specializes in Greek, Italian, and Mediterranean Food and even has a six-pack store with an impressive array of delicious beers for the taking.
