Let's All Turn Technology Takers Into Technology Makers
Here at Racksburg we're big believers in exposing kids to STEM and information technologies. Admittedly, we do this partly because making our region more attractive to seasoned technology experts with growing families is just good for business (as discussed in this previous blog post).

Macrons are AMAZING - we did not eat here but got a box of macrons to go - wort every penny (~3$ each). I would love to try the food and other treats another visit. The queues were a bit confusing but staff helped line everyone up - we paid then got a card to mark off what flavors we wanted, then handed the card over and waited for our box. the problem was there were about 3 counters and no clear delineation of lines. One case was all chocolates, another was cakes and things, the last being the macrons right as you come in the door.

My sister was displeased with the area it was located in, she said if she had known where we were going we would not have gone after dark. The building and interior itself were gorgeous, high ceilings, exposed woodwork, very crisp and modern tables and chairs. I loved the test tube smelling area. You could scan then and a screen would tell you all about them. The staff was friendly, helpful, but not pushy. I got the Himalayan Butter Tea (Nepalese Black, Oolong & Pu Er Tea, Butter, Salt, Milk, Honey) It tasted spiced, I liked the texture of the butter, but I would have sworn there were spices in it and it was interesting but not something I would get again. There were an assortment of gold mylar bags, gift boxes, and tea ware one could buy and take home, in the outdoor seating area there was a living wall. I enjoyed the visit and would gladly go back, apparently only before dark.

had wild boar ragu, berry cyder, and a tasty chocolate cake. I noticed all the local places were closing and panicked trying to find dinner. they were getting ready to close but happily let me in. i didn't feel rushed at all. the food was tasty, the service was great. the place was full when i arrived. it seems a very nice - but slightly noisy location.

I attended this dentist initially for a cleaning after i moved to texas, he found many cavities despite me never having a history of more than one or two cavities. the one hurt so i agreed, he did multiple anyway. all teeth he worked on (2011-2012) now (2015) have had rot issues and needed root canals. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. every tooth they touched has caused me misery since then - none of the others.

My mother and I went to the Tea Rose Garden for the Christmas Tea. The location was adorable - an indoor garden setting with water fountain, rose trellis, hedges and a gazebo where a bridal shower was occurring. The place was all trussed up for Christmas and was very festive. The three layered tea tray came with butternut squash soup - thick and spiced like a sweet potato pie Petal salad - just spring greens with a vinaigrette 2 baked ham, brie and cranberry tea sandwich 2 chicken almond tea sandwich 2 goat cheese and sun dried tomato tea sandwich 1 mini shepards pie 1 lemon raspberry scone with clotted cream and raspberry jam. fresh fruit 1 petit four red velvet, gingerbread and peppermint macaroons eggnog mousse cake a pot of Christmas blend black tea which we resteeped twice about 40$ for both of us Service was a bit slow and frazzeled but very pleasant. The food was mostly unremarkable, not bad but not great. We both very much enjoyed the red velvet macaroon, the butternut squash soup, the baked ham and brie sandwich, and found the scone amazingly moist and tasty. Everything else was uneventful. Many of the items there were only one of so you had to share, which is no problem as my mother and I are happy to share food but something to be aware of for those who might not. The teabag (tsac) was left in the teapot, leading to oversteeping if you aren't careful. this is becoming a peeve of mine in afternoon teas. Please steep the tea properly, or bring out a timer and dish and tongs to remove the tea! I forgot to note what the christmas tea was spice with, but it mainly came out cardamom, but was enjoyable. We had to go to the register to pay, it was a little awkward as no one said anything and perhaps we should have waited on a check?

I went here for dinner after checking into Wombat's hostel. It was a weeknight and not crowded but there was an assortment of people as well as people grabbing take out. The prices seemed reasonable, the food was tasty, the portion was more than sufficient, and the service was attentive. I was a bit sad I wanted a mango lassi to drink but they were out of it and i couldn't get any lassi.
