NOVA? ... no, Hampton, VA

I ate lunch today at Five Guys. Prior to moving to Fairfax, VA in 2003 I had never heard of Five Guys ... now it's here in Hampton and/ or Newport News ... the same goes for:
  • Panera
  • Chipotle
  • Silver Diner
I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. I enjoyed the diversity of the poles of Virginia, now it's turning into a cluster fudge of everywhere looking the same. In fact, the development where the Five Guys now is also home to:
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Super Target
  • Chipotle
  • Delia's
  • H&M
  • Hollister
  • Express
  • The Limited
All that is missing is an Urban Outfitters and a Noodles & Co. and they can rename the place, 'Little NOVA'
