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.




see the shrubs....... "Butch Rocco" is in one.


hours


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!

Grab!


Mama Angelina's...



1181 Front Royal Pike Rt 522
Winchester, VA 22602
(540) 662-4202

I shared the two slices and a drink lunch special with Butch...


New tag...


How do you like my Dually rear! 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...



Come hungry, you and your bike...


They have a counter in the back that has different home cooking type meals, wings, country steaks, green beans, mashed potatoes, sloppy joes, etc. Nothing fancy. Seating on the inside of outside under a pavilion overlooking Belle Grove.

Hours of operation(which I forgot to get a picture of) are as follows
M-F. 5:30-8:00
Sat. 6:00-8:00
Sun. 7:00-8:00

Want a closer look at the name?

Bruced. I can't say that we came away empty handed (bellied?) though...

We got there right at 3.

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

What's even better is the first tag produced double the results and a brucing.

Yes it was pretty good! 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.
