|46 East Lawn|
While on the grounds at the University of Virginia, Nightlife stopped by 46 East Lawn, which holds some significance to some people somewhere. Picture snapped. The current inhabitant is Evans Jay Finger, a Kappa Sig in his 4th year from Houston, Texas. He is also a member of the Mystic order of Eli Banana, est. 1878. We also took a peek at Edgar Allen Poe's dorm room, where the poet and author lived until creditors ran him out of town in 1827.
Saturday began around 7am. We dragged ourselves out of bed and made our way to breakfast, met up with the rest of the gang, and made the trek to Foxfield.
Nightlife wants to take a moment to thank our gracious hosts, who allowed the Nightlife crew to invade their family tradition and spend time with a great group of people. Thank you - you know who you are.
If there's one thing we learned from race day it's get there early. You don't want to be the guy trying to back your big ass truck bed in between two established parties at 11am. It's unacceptable.

At the end of the races, Nightlife headed back to the hotel room for a quick nap before hitting the streets to continue the party. Charlottesville has many great bars near campus, and the drink prices are unbelievable. It was nice to be back in a college town.
Foxfield attendees drank late into the night before stumbling back to their dorms or hotel rooms.

All in all, our first experience at Foxfield races was a tremendous success. Nightlife is back - safe and sound - in Arlington and will resume regular operations tomorrow.
