a special price) or have knowledgeable staff that are ready and willing to chat with you and help with your assignment: Palisades Restaurant (special wine/food pairings on Thursdays) 622 North, Blacksburg (wine bar with dozen or two wines by the glass) Lucky's, Roanoke (awesome place, great French-American fusion food, unique French wine selection by glass) Blue Apron Restaurant & Red Rooster Bar (wow. take the rents to this place to impress. Mention me and they will take care of you, staff is stellar at pairing their wines to the small plates selection) River and Rail (southern Bistro with delicious food, be sure to make a reservation) Seriously, these peeps will take care of you. Let me know if there are any other restaurants that you think could be added to this list. Please clear any restaurant not on this list with me first before you go drop dollars on a place that is not appropriate for this assignment...which pretty much means all the other places in town. Getting a glass of the house red at Olive Garden won't make the grade. Go to "WINE ABOUT TOWN" tab at to get full details on these places, their special offerings for this class, and other wine events and tastings. BTW: If you want to plan a wine/food paring dinner party at your own house with friends and family, that will totally apply here, as long as you take the pairing part seriously and document all your food and wine decisions along the way. And no joke: 20+ (or more) extra points if you do a wine/food event with your parents and/or family members!!! That is, your mother/father/sis/bro/grandparents/aunt/uncle. Must be documented well though! No scammers or fake families!!! 8) WINERY VISITATION BLOG REPORT To encourage you to get out there in the real world to see how it is actually done, I will offer credit (up to 50 points each, 100 points max) for a well-documented blog entry on a winery/brewery/distillation house visit. Worth a possible 50 points each, but you can only do 2 of them total, and only turn in ONE per week (that is, don’t wait until the last week of class to try and turn in 2 of them.) Collect literature from the place, sample their beverages, tour the production facilities, walk through the vineyards, participate in a festival if it is happening...hell, go for the full immersion experience. But document it well! Take pictures, take descriptive notes of the place and your experience, take separate tasting notes of what you tried, and be sure to get details off the bottles themselves to reference. To turn in, craft a nice, creative blog entry on your experience including everything you can, outlined in a narrative format. In other words, I don't want you posting 2 or 3 words, or a handful of random unlabeled pics. Tell the story of your visit logically, well organized, and place images in along the way, and be sure to put a caption with them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
