What if Charlottesville had Only 29 Restaurants?

Charlottesville has a lot of restaurants. A lot.

Charlottesville 29 is a fantastic new blog asking (and answering) the question – If there were just 29 restaurants in Charlottesville, what would be the ideal 29?

I found this blog when it was shared by a friend on some social network. I remember that he pointed out what is possibly the most comprehensive, definitive depiction of the Charlottesville institution known as Bodo’s. It’s a fascinating read.

When you are in Charlottesville, going to Bodo’s is just something you do. Bodo’s is so embedded in our culture that it has become a Charlottesville institution tocall Bodo’s a “Charlottesville institution.” In a city of 43,000 people, Bodo’s has a Facebook page with 15,000 “Likes.”

Still not convinced? Consider this. Combined, Bodo’s three locations feed close to 6,000 people per day. That’s nearly 500 per hour that they are open. Or, seven per minute.

I’m looking forward to reading more in my now-pared-down daily reading.

* I wonder how many of those 43k “likes” are from the City. 🙂
