    Hilltop To those who come from areas of high elevation, often it seems Hilltop was named as a joke. No way! It is the best hill we have in eastern Virginia Beach, and is a high spot on the crest of Pungo Ridge in our flat, barely above sea level city. In 1945, Mr. Dean S. Potter built a gas station on the northeast corner of Laskin Road and what is now First Colonial Road. According to his son Gordon, and the memory of this writer, Mr. Potter was the first to call this area hilltop. He leased his station as Hilltop Esso so that no matter who operated it, the name Hilltop would be utilized. Subsequently, the Potter properties in this section incorporate the name Hilltop. In 1948 just east of the gas station, Mr. Potter built Hilltop Motel, which so far as this writer knows was the first motel in our county/city. This was the beginning of the new concept of replacing tourist cabins and cottages with motels. If you doubt Hilltop is actually elevated, just look westward from the Laskin Road and First Colonial Road intersection. It is especially noticeable after a heavy rain, even with the help of modern storm drainage system, which was not there when Mr. Potter named it Hilltop. The elevation where these roads cross is actually 27 feet above sea level. The grandson of Mr. Potter lives in one of the largest houses in "Alanton" in Virginia Beach off of First Colonial Road.

    ok, i checked out Carrabbas. its not great. decent, but i wouldnt expect much more from a chain. the food is fresh, but not something to run home to tell your mother about. the atmosphere is........um.....ok, but with similarities of Outback(same owner). serive was great because we just so happened to know the bartender and he was up our azz trying to empress us. they arent open for lunch. i give it a 6 of of 10. i probably wont go back. i just cant get into chain restaraunts. i dont know what it is. i guess its the navy crowd that repulses me.

    Have any of you seen the men in the water stripping the forms yet? This is really something to see. The concrete deck is so low they cant fit a barge under there so they have divers go down there and strip the steel beams and formwork. These guys make more than decent money. Another hunch is that the city is too involved in this one and its going to take a slow start going vertical.

    Sounds good dogg. This place gets so dry in here, I was just trying to liven the place up a bit. I guess that remains in the "off-topic" only forum...

    That is a pretty amazing place. Your family has done some great work with the upgrades. I wouldnt mind coming and seeing that for myself. I am have a big interest for the history of this area. Its always good to see that someone still has the same interest and actually puts forth the effort to keep it in great condition. Great job.

    A&M is terrible. I thought that it would be good from the media but for men its just plain terrible. The new Express for men just opened back up. It's ok, but nothing great. I think we need a Holister. I know we have a lot of surf shops but I still think it would do well here. AF has jumped their prices up recently. Prices upwards of 80-90 duckets for a pair of jeans. I dont mind paying that much for a pair of Seven's or something designer, but for garbage like AF is just plain ignorant. Holister resembles AF a bit, but with lower prices. I hate going to Norfolk just to buy clothes other than the casual WRV stuff.
