Eat The Streets is a network of quality food trucks dedicated to bringing amazing street food to Hampton Roads. Not only did they sponsor our InstaMeet, but they provided two food trucks for us to sample from. Delish! Eat The Streets is currently petitioning the city of Va Beach to bring a ‘hub’ of local businesses to 708 Atlantic Ave. The Hub will feature food trucks, artists, artisans, brewers and musicians working side by side to bring the residents and tourists of Hampton Roads a new and exciting open air market.

Walking On Water

Walking On Water
InstaMeet feature 1/5: walking on water by @globe.trotter_. Along with your feature you receive a gift card to @withlavandlace. Lavender and Lace is a quaint storefront in the heart of Norfolk’s Historic Ghent neighborhood, filled with meticulously rediscovered vintage apparel and handmade goods. The shop nurtures the aesthetic of an intuitive and happy life, free from restrictions in both fashion and form. We love them because they sponsored the InstaMeet and because their store is cute as cuss. Check them out: withlavenderandlace.com

InstaMeet
We had a blast hosting our first InstaMeet at The Plot yesterday! Lots of 757 cities represented and even some folks from outside the 757 showed up. Many thanks to @eatthestreets757 and @twistedsisterscupcakes for coming out and providing some delicious eats. Photos are still being added to the event hashtag, #WWIM11_757. We’ll be featuring shots from the meet all this week. If you couldn’t make it out this time, no worries, we’ll be hosting another meet this summer.
