Spotluck partners with DBI

#1 Dining App In The Nation Launches In Blacksburg!

spotluck_logo_greenoutline

DC-based startup, Spotluck, has expanded to Blacksburg. Spotluck allows local restaurants to collaborate, join forces, and collectively market the neighborhood’s best “spots” to dine. The app markets neighborhood restaurants by awarding users with discounts based on factors like day, time, and weather (i.e. higher incentives when restaurants need to fill more tables).

Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. (DBI) is a non-profit (501c6) association of merchants, property dbi-spotluck-1owners, and downtown advocates whose mission is to sustain a dynamic, vital, and diverse community through marketing, events, economic development, and leadership.

DBI has partnered with Spotluck to bring the app to our local Blacksburg restaurants. Download the free app using promo code “DOWNTOWN” to support Downtown Blacksburg Inc.

Spotluck began as a capstone thesis on yield management in the restaurant industry, a concept pioneered by companies like Priceline, Amazon, and Uber. Co-Founders Cherian Thomas and Brad Sayler launched Spotluck from their basement in 2014, partnering with 8 local restaurants in Rockville, MD. In two years, the app has spread to over 500 local bburg-wicked-tacorestaurants throughout DC, MD, VA, and PA. Recently, Virginia Tech and James Madison University have joined Georgetown, University of Maryland, Drexel, UPENN, Hood College, George Mason University, and American University as college campuses that are located in a Spotluck Hub. Spotluck operates on a simple concept: local restaurants thrive when collaborating as a neighborhood. The community of restaurants offers “smart” discounts to attract customers during slower times (between 10%-35%). The theory that prices on a rainy Tuesday shouldn’t be the same as prices on a beautiful Friday evening forms the basis of the dynamic pricing you’ll see in the app. Plus, Spotluck’s daily “spin” provides bonus savings and a fun twist for its loyal users.

How does it work? When you open the app, you’ll pick a neighborhood where you’d like to eat, and a wheel of eight restaurants pops up. With a quick and simple spin, the app selects one restaurant to give a higher discount for that day and that day only. Want to try somewhere else instead? You’ll still get 10% off any of the other restaurants just for being a Spotlucker. Download the free app using promo code “DOWNTOWN” and stop by to support these tasty local restaurants:

The Artful Lawyer- DBI Non-Profit Member of the Month

16 Aug UpontheRoof Group

Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. is proud to present our Non-Profit Member of the Month for August 2016-The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc.

When The Creekmore Law Firm moved to its new location on Main Street in September WYP Group2011, we recognized a unique opportunity to not only expand our business practice but to become a part of Blacksburg’s Creative Village. After a few months of gathering hanging materials, pulling art contacts together, creating a library space for Harding Avenue Elementary’s art, and becoming a Merchant Partner with the Blacksburg Regional Art Association, we debuted our first art exhibit in December of 2011 to a gathering of nearly 150 clients and friends.  We formed our not-for-profit gallery, The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. in 2012 and continued our art parties, now dubbed Whet Your Palette receptions.  Since that first art reception, our walls have become an ever-changing canvas to our local artists’ imaginations–adults and children alike–and our halls have been filled by an ever-changing mix of friends, neighbors, clients and art patrons from all around. We’ve expanded our children’s gallery to include Blacksburg Middle School and Gilbert Linkous Elementary School and welcome more.  Indeed, we are dedicated to providing such a space as long as the creativity flows.

But more than an exhibition space, the Gallery offers diverse programs ranging from artist talks to our monthly Art & Law symposium, that draws on the strengths of the Law Firm to address various legal and business related issues for artists, particularly including the intellectual property rights attendant to the works they create.  We happily engage with any artist group or guild anywhere in Virginia who is interested in hearing more about intellectual property rights or business law as it pertains to their particular artistic field of endeavor.

PaintPartyUnder the Artful Lawyer umbrella are two projects, The Artful Place, A Fine Studio and The Gallery Store. 

In late 2012, a great number of New River Valley artists gathered for a critical exchange of ideas, needs, goals and desires, and what emerged was a resounding interest in an affordable, collaborative, creative environment within which artists could work together, exchange ideas and promote on another’s work.  Within weeks, our old office location at the corner of Faculty and Progress Streets in the heart of the newly minted Arts Overlay District of Blacksburg was transformed into just such a collaborative working studio environment for artists.  With that, The Artful Place, A Fine Studio was born as a Studio Project of The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. The Artful Place currently claims 15 artists in residence. At The Artful Place, emerging and well-established artists alike work side by side, collaborating and creating in an artfully inspired and thought-stimulating environment.

The Artful Place hosts monthly Paint Parties and Figure Drawing classes.  Registration for all events is available online at our Calendar of Events .  Though we have scheduled Paint Parties, private parties may be scheduled as well – either at our place or offsite!   We look to see what themes others come up with to paint!  Other studio artists hold workshops, classes or special events from time to time, so always check back with us on our Calendar and keep up to date on our social media platforms as well!

The Gallery Store, adjacent to The Gallery is the proud home to local vendors who sell a variety of original art, jewelry, candles, stained glass, cards, knitwear, tea, baby clothes and books.

The Artful Lawyer also holds two signature events per year for clients, friends, artists, and the community at large, Blacksburg en Blanc in the summer and New River en Noir in the winter. BenB Wave

Blacksburg en Blanc is a Blacksburg en Blanc builds on the tradition started in Paris 27 years ago by François Pasquier who invited a few friends to the Bois de Boulogne one day in June for an impromptu picnic. To find each other quickly in the park, they all wore white. The dinner was such a success that they decided that the next year each person would invite new friends.  Over the years, and throughout many countries, this impromptu picnic has become an annual tradition, with over 11,000 people attending in the bigger cities.  Friends gather together, dressed in white, for a spontaneous night out — for the location is not disclosed until the morning of the event!  In our small town, attendance is slightly smaller but just as fun!

New River en Noir builds on our popular Blacksburg en Blanc, with a holiday twist.  Like Blacksburg en Blanc, the venue is a surprise.  Like Blacksburg en Blanc, the attire is set.  Unlike Blacksburg en Blanc, however, you need not bring anything but your holiday spirit and your dancing shoes!  We provide your transportation, your meal, and your entertainment. Registration HERE!

In 2014, The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. was honored by the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce as its Outstanding New Member of the Year.

The University Club-DBI Non-Profit Member of the Month

11 Apr University Club NEW Logo

Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. is proud to present our Non-Profit Member of the Month for April 2016-The University Club

Genesis of the University Club
Condensed Version of Original Work by Harry D. Temple - May 31, 1993

 In the fall of 1925, three young faculty members, Daniel Cromer Heitshu, Ralph Harper Chestnut, and James Godkin, discussed their mundane life in Blacksburg’s public boarding houses, and the need of a faculty organization to broaden the life of the college community.  From that discussion, the idea of a university club was conceived, a faculty facility with “a gracious atmosphere and a fraternal bond among its members”.clubhouse Encouraged by the college community’s response, these men brought the matter to the attention of the Blacksburg Lions Club.  On October 13, 1925, sixty faculty members and V.P.I. alumni from the town, met and elected temporary officers to establish an organization, and various committees were appointed to work out the details.

The University Club enrolled sixty-five charter members on December 16, 1925.  Dr. Otto Cornelius Burkart was elected President, Henry Barksdale Redd was selected as Vice-President, Dr. Samuel Andrew Wingard was made Secretary, and James Godkin was appointed Treasurer.  Dr. Irl Donaker Wilson, Dr. Fred Denton Fromme, and Professor James Bernard Jones constituted the first Board of Directors.  “The University Club of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute” opened membership to V.P.I. faculty members and alumni, and to other college men of the community and state, and consisted of resident, social and honorary members.  The stated purpose of the club was to provide a house to be used as a gathering place for its members and their friends for social events.

3The University Club and the Dohee Country Club combined their efforts and held a joint social event for their members on April 22, 1926, in the German Hall, located on the V.P.I campus. Within a short time the University Club was a successful organization with a list of 125 members. The new University Club eventually was able to lease and move into a large brick house, known as the Hoge Property, at the corner of Clay and Water Streets on June 1, 1927. This location served the club well, and was first managed by Mrs. Frank Williams, who deserved much of the credit for the early success of the Club.

By 1928, the leased clubhouse was found to be of insufficient size and arrangement for the growing membership and activities of the club. A building committee, headed by Professor Clinton Harriman Cowgill, head of the V.P.I. Department of Architectural Engineering, proposed a design for a three story brick clubhouse, with basement. It was to be erected on land leased from V.P.I, where the house currently stands, to this day. The Club board approved the proposed design on March 13, 1929, and committees were established to coordinate the financing and construction of the new clubhouse.4

The Colonial Georgian style house plans and specifications were drawn up by three young faculty members:  Daniel Cromer Heitshu, Patrick Herndon Barnes, and William Forest Harrington. It was determined that $40,000 would be required to finance the project.  The Board of Visitors loaned the Club the first 15,000.00, and the members of the club raised the remaining $25,000 through the sale of first mortgage bonds. The upper floors of the house were designated and built with 28 resident rooms for the single male faculty members on campus. The house plans also included venues on the main floor and lower level for various kinds of entertainment for the Club members, such as dances and bridge parties several times each month.

A ground breaking ceremony was held on Wednesday, June 19, 1929.  College dignitaries: President Julian Ashby Burruss, Dean John Edward Williams, Dean Harvey Lee Price, and Dr. Samuel Andrew Wingard, Club President, all participated in the momentous occasion. Construction on the clubhouse was completed in October of 1929. The permanent home of the University Club was celebrated by the members on December 6, 1929, with an informal housewarming.

Your Venue of Distinction………. the University Club offers the ambiance and character of its’ historical Georgian architecture.  Its’ double French doors are a true compliment to the venue, opening out to the upper veranda and patio, to create a lovely interactive space for your guests.

7Your special day can be your “own”, with many options to choose from. Our upper veranda and brick patios are perfect for the outside reception. The main floor offers a more formal atmosphere, and the lower level, known as the Emerald Lounge, with its’ “night club style”, is the perfect location for music and dancing.

The UClub venue allows you to choose the caterer you desire. There are no restrictions on how you cater your event, you may even cater the reception yourselves, if you so wish. We truly are your venue of….. endless possibilities!

The University Club serves the community as a social and cultural center, as well as a residence for 25 individuals affiliated with Virginia Tech. Resident members come from all over the world, as graduate students, visiting scholars and faculty.

The University Club offers the only true “gathering place” for both the “Town & Gown” members of our community. The Club’s history and tradition have held a stellar presence on VT campus since 1925, and continues to serve its members from Virginia Tech as well as professionals in the area.

UClub members enjoy a diverse schedule of events throughout the year, offering Theme Parties, Happy Hour Gatherings, and Cultural events. Other member benefits include our convenient, on-campus parking, and the ability to rent the facility for social or business functions.

The historical elegance of the Club house offers a variety of venues, inside and out, which may vary by size, and fit the needs of a casual or a more formal event. Whether it’s a meeting, reception, wedding or birthday, the UClub has the ambiance and space to fit your needs.

The University Club is currently offering potential members our newest Membership Drive program, as well as a waiver on the one time initiation fee of $50.00 per member.

Fringe Benefit- DBI Business Member of the Month

14 Jan 14

Downtown Blacksburg, Inc is proud to present our Business Member of the Month for January 2016- Fringe Benefit

Owned and operated by Nancyne Willoughby, a Virginia Tech graduate, Fringe Benefit is proud to have served the community for 42 years.

In March 1972 the original owner, local entrepreneur Beverly Patterson, opened Fringe Benefit in the old Mill building, later to move it down to street-front at 217 College Avenue. It was an all natural fiber store, to combat the evil polyester of the 1970’s! Nancyne remembers shopping there when she was at Tech in the late 70’s. This very successful women’s clothing and accessories shop was there for more than two decades.

Beverly moved to Texas in the early 80’s and the store needed some attention. Nancyne had managed a few other boutiques in town after college and decided to ask Bev if she would ever sell the store; a few years later Bev was ready to sell. Judy Murray and Nancyne bought the store from Beverly in September 1987. They updated the business and worked together as co-owners until Judy left the business in 1997. The original store was 900 sq feet. Nancyne decided she wanted a fresher look and a bigger space so she moved into the current location, the old spot where Davidson’s men’s clothing shop had been at 117 N. Main St. in June of 2004.

Nancyne was born in Massachusetts, grew up mostly in Northern VA, came to Blacksburg to go to Virginia Tech, and never left. She earned a BA in Art, with a minor in History at VT. She joined DBI, formerly the Downtown Merchants of Blacksburg, in 1987 and has served as President of the Organization for a total of 16 years since joining. She is currently serving a second term on the Board. Nancyne was instrumental in the renovation of the Lyric Theatre and was a member of the original Lyric Board for 10 years. She has also served on the Friends of the Farmers Market Board for 10 years.

Nancyne says: “I love being downtown, you get a real sense of community. I love interacting with my customers!”
