NW Virginia Tag-to-Eat Tag-o-Rama
 
This is a new tag-o-rama to help lift our sagging economy! Rules are the same as all other tag games, you have to ride to play. The boundaries are the same as the Northwestern VA Tag-o-rama for now, but loosly enforced.

In this game however, when you make the GRAB, you MUST make a purchase as well. Either food or drink or both. If you are pressed for time, grab a drink and split, but you might be missing whatever the tagger was trying to introduce you to! Tags can only be left at places of business that sell food and or drink. Once you grab our mascot, "Butch Rocco" (the crossdressing rubberized lesbian waterfowl) you should get a pic of he/she with your meal and post it. (EDIT......Butch is long gone....our newest mascot is a plastic Rhino. 11/1/13)

The focus here should be on placing tags at your favorite mom & pop style places. They can be restaurants, bars, road side stores, deli's........whatever. ....Fast food and franchise restaurants are not encouraged. Lets support our local merchants & restaurant owners before we are forced to eat at Wal-Mart!!!!

********clarification*************** you do NOT have to purchase or eat when you PLACE the tag. Only when you make a GRAB.

Oh ya.........and one other thing..........get a pic of the store hours for obvious reasons.

I placed the first tag today. But you have to wait until tomorrow to make the first grab. You can get pizza by the slice here!

Thanks to Clutchcargo55 for the mascot and Bwalsh for the helpful ideas.

UPDATE 1-8-13 I am sad to say our first tag location........Mama Angelina's is OUT OF BUSINESS. Not because we didn't support it, just due to internal problems (from what I heard). Don't waste your time stopping there.



lets the games begin.


UPDATE>>>>>>>> Bwalsh created a map for this game per the request of inmates. The link is on PAGE 7 but I am attempting to link it here. RTE Tag-O-Rama map

The NY style pizza is pretty good. Not quite like I'm used to in Upstate NY but as close as your gonna get in VA.

Bob, since your ideas were instrumental in starting this feel free to chime in with ideas making it work better. I'm just here to ride!

How do you like my Dually rear! :D Notice the miniature wagon behind the bike This one?

Look in the back of the wagon and you will see this piece of flagstone. Butch is under the stone. You can see a part of him in the pic. I moved him further to the left...

I'll be...

At least the restaurant got some business from this tag game! :clap

What time where you there?

cpayne5 03-23-2012 05:03 PM

We got there right at 3.

I asked the waiter if he saw any rowdy bikers rummaging through the bushes earlier in the day. :D

bwalsh 03-23-2012 05:19 PM

I think next time I go for one I'll post here in the AM and see who wants to meet up and have lunch, diner, etc...Glad to see you posting and tagging!

Yes it was pretty good! :D I should have got a couple toppings on them though.

For future reference I'll have to remember to get pics of the options for food at non restaurant type establishments such as the place I put the tag. They have OK food for a market like that. It wasn't my first option but I ran into Old Eli(an inmate) up in Winchester and talked about two hours with him. I was running(had run) out of time and I couldn't make it to where I wanted to take it.

cpayne5 03-23-2012 08:00 PM

Yes, the pizza was good. There is a pizza place down my way that I'll get you guys to try if I can get my hands on Butch.
