Logstradamus

  • 1st Street Jetty

Logstradamus is strictly for fun.  It is a semiformal surf-related event that was created on the fundamental that the person having the most fun wins.   And generally speaking, the person having the most fun is slightly immature and is dressed in mid-century European formal wear.

Yes, it is a single fin surf competition.  Yes, it is a celebration of music.  Yes, it is slightly bizarre.  But more than anything, it is a venue for the young and old alike to unite in a mutually strange environment and laugh.

Hampton Roads Beard and Stache Society Pub Night @ 80/20 Burger Bar

  • 80/20 Burger Bar

After being at Belmont House of Smoke for over a year we have moved to a new location. Belmont was great, but as we have grown that means we needed to change things up. That being said, we will now be having pub night at 80/20 BURGER BAR from here on out! 

At 80/20 we have been gifted with having the entire bar to ourselves. So when you come in, go straight to the bar and we will be there having a good time. The other great thing about this is pub night will now start at 6:00 and run until 9. So we will be having an EXTRA 30 minutes and pub night is or course still come and go as you please. 

So PLEASE join us in our new location, you won't regret it!
