Fall is the fashionista’s dream season; crisp sunny days call for more layers, which means more clothes and more outfit combinations. But an unimpressive, generic jacket can easily crush the flawlessly layered look you were going for. Think of these outerwear choices as the cherry on top of your perfectly layered outfit!

Getting bored of that Natty Light you find yourself drinking every weekend? Despite the unbeatable price, we have something a little more appealing in mind.
How about trying 80 different kinds of tasty craft beers? Well we wouldn’t recommend trying all 80, but you’ll sure have your pick at Brew Do. On Saturday October 6, the 4th annual craft beer festival returns to the First and Main shopping center in Blacksburg, VA. The Blacksburg Partnership will bring together the best local, regional, and micro-craft breweries in addition to the best local restaurants for a day full of drinking, dining, and fun. Two country inspired bands will be performing for festival goers entertainment: “Gov’t Plant” from Southwest VA and “3 Minute Lovin’,” both of which are country, blues, and rock fusion bands.
Tickets for the event can be purchased online at http://www.blacksburgbrewdo.com/ticket/ or at both Blacksburg Kroger locations. We suggest getting your tickets in advance at a discounted price. Tickets will run you $20 for admission and 10 tastings or $30 for admission and 20 tastings. You’ll also get a free souvenir beer tasting glass! Prices go up $5 at the gate. And if you are under 21 and want to accompany your friends (or want to be a good friend and be the designated driver for the day) it’ll only cost you $5 to get in. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Blacksburg Partnership whose aim is to increase the quality of life in Blacksburg. The “Howls and Meows” fundraiser returns to the festival again this year selling “upscale” pet houses with proceeds going to the Animal Welfare Foster Program.

I keep thinking that it's not goodbye, keep on thinking it's a time to fly.
It’s here, ladies. Formals season for Greek life is like a much more fun, and likely alcohol induced, less awkward, high school prom (except now we can skip the bad sparkly gowns). Whether you are taking a guy to your sorority formal or going to a fraternity formal, follow these simple dos and don’ts and you’re sure to have a night to remember (or not remember depending on your drink of choice that night).
Like wine? April 28 from noon to 6 p.m., Blacksburg’s First and Main Shopping center will host Fork and Cork, which features local wineries, restaurants, artists and bands.
