As I write this, the streets are filling in Floyd for a summer Friday Night along Locust Street, the town’s music row.  As always music will spill out onto the street and musicians will play at Oddfellas Cantina, Blackwater Loft, The Country Store and Cafe del Sol.

Diners will chow down at Oddfellas, Blue Ridge Restaurant and El Charro or they will grab a hot dog and shake at Country Store or pizza at Cafe del Sol.  Some will dine at Pine Tavern or grab a burger at D.J.’s drive-in.

Sooner or later, most end up downtown, listening to the music or jamming with other musicians on the street.

It is a big part of what makes Floyd special — like no place on earth.
