Virginia won’t tip off its Sweet 16 game against Michigan State until around 10 tonight, which is great news for fans who congregate at Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill for the DC Hoos watch party. One of the in-game specials is Rooftop’s take on the Gus Burger, and it’s a scientific fact that the closer to 4 a.m. Gus Burgers are consumed, the better they taste.
For the uninitiated, the original Gus Burger is the signature offering of the The White Spot in Charlottesville. It’s a cheeseburger with a fried egg on top.

From a 2012 Cavalier Daily article:
“Gus burgers are the food most reflective of the U.Va. party culture,” second-year College student Jon Torre said. “The blend of substantial protein is perfectly complemented by the strong flavor of condiments. It’s this ideal blend of seriousness and fun inside a fluffy, protective bun that makes this sloppy 2 a.m. meal a glorious U.Va tradition.”
Devils Backbone will add some more local flavor to the festivities, but who’s bringing the Bodo’s bagels?
