Today I discovered another of that legion of fellow travelers drawn to Floyd, Virginia.  Go and check him out.

FLOYD VA

The logo of the Oddfellas Cantina sums up the town of Floyd, VA.  Drawn in the style of Grant Wood’s painting American Gothic, the logos’ graphic shows three men standing side by side: a farmer wearing bib overalls, holding a hoe; a Jerry Garcia lookalike, and a businessman in a suit sporting a bowler hat.  Co-existing quite happily in Floyd are the farmers that have worked the land for generations, the hippies that started to arrive in the ‘60’s, and the businessmen that keep the Floyd economy buzzing.  Retail shops in Floyd seem to cater to all three cultural cohorts:  there is a Hardware & Farm store, a mix of real estate companies and banks, a natural foods store, books stores, coffee shops, and enough tie-dyes in clothing stores to outfit a hippie army.
