Please be respectful
Hokies are all about respect and this weekend should be no different. Keep in mind, too, that Yom Kippur begins at sundown on Sept. 29 and concludes at nightfall on Sept. 30. As such, if you're tailgating near these locations, please be respectful to those who may be observing this holy day in Judaism.
