Default A Staunton, VA Pop-up Drive/Staycation/Soiree

On March 27 to March 29, a bunch of us are headed to Staunton, VA for two nights at the Hampton Inn in Staunton at 40 Payne Lane, Staunton, VA. Phone is 540-886-7000. Wednesday night we'll do dinner at Wright's Dairy Rite Drive-in. We'll feast on real drive-in food. Thursday, we're going to do a drive up Rt 250 to WVa, have lunch and then explore some great back roads to return to the hotel. That night we'll do a (somewhat more) formal dinner. If you want to come along, call the hotel directly. There is no formal itinerary for this pop-up, it's just a bunch of friends getting together for food, fun and driving. Hope to see you there (and if you do decide to come along, post a message below so I have an idea of how many people to expect so I can warn the restaurants).

I have a block of rooms reserved for the Staunton meet. The Group Code is: DDG.

We'll celebrate for you in Staunton. (Incidentally, Staunton is also the home of the Eastern Virginia Mental Hospital but I don't think there's any connection )

Back before the invention of dirt, I used to date a girl that lived in Staunton and we ate at Writght's a lot. Of course that was just after the automobile was invented.

I"m gong to worry about how you knew that . (I was born in Charlottesville and could never figure out why the hospital in Staunton was Western State and the hospital in Marion is Eastern Statel. I guess Southern State was already taken ).

Hoping I can make this event. I've yet to meet any of the RVA S2000 community. My only connection with Staunton is SMA which I wanted to attend. My uncle, after whom I was named, was there probably in the 1920s. I guess he was incorrigible.
