9. Eat at The Varsity on game day


Walk into the eighty-one-year-old fast-food landmark during off-hours, and the counter staff’s signature call—“What’ll ya have? What’ll ya have?”—echoes almost forlornly. (Stick to drive-in service during slow hours; the carhops are characters.) But swing by on a Tech game day, and a meal here becomes a timeless American experience. The cashiers’ shouts become urgent, the roaring fryers sound like distant applause, and the teeming lines move swiftly. And what’ll ya have? A chili dog, onion rings, an “F.O.” (frosted orange shake), and a fried apple pie. thevarsity.com
