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 Bodoâ€™s is just something you do. Bodoâ€™s is so embedded in our culture that it has become a Charlottesville institution tocall Bodoâ€™s a â€œCharlottesville institution.â€ In a city of 43,000 people, Bodoâ€™s has a Facebook page with 15,000 â€œLikes.â€
Still not convinced? Consider this. Combined, Bodoâ€™s three locations feed close to 6,000 people per day. Thatâ€™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. 🙂
