The following tabs are for a few of the best social networking groups on FaceBook for locals in Virginia Beach.  You can come here and see all of the recent posts and images from people who have lived and loved everything about Virginia Beach for most of their lives.  Thank you to the group administrators and creators for providing the groups!

About the Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/IGrewUpInVirginiaBeach/

I Grew Up In Virginia Beach is the largest, longest running and most popular Facebook and internet social venue for sharing great memories of growing up in Virginia Beach. This is a family oriented group, so we ask each member’s cooperation in keeping content fun and positive. When you join I Grew Up In Virginia Beach and participate in this group, you also agree to RESPECT each other, the memories shared here, the group’s vision, our hometown and the administrators.

I Grew Up In Virginia Beach was created by Paul West in late February of 2010 with the following vision which remains the same today:

“I Grew Up in Virginia Beach is about reconnecting with long lost friends and bringing back great memories of growing up in Virginia Beach. It is a network for those who spent time in Virginia Beach – ‘back in the day’ looking to ‘log’ some of the history of those youthful days you enjoyed in Virginia Beach.”

How many peeps remember the Mad Hatter? ... See MoreSee Less

Used to love to go see him!!! He was at Tony's Hacienda then was at the beach at Sir Richards....Skip was one of the funniest people I've ever seen!

I remember the name

He was the funniest comedian I've ever seen!

He would be at Ocean Eddie's

Saw him 1x and if you were down in front and got up during his show he would dog the hell out of you....

Yes...or come in late

You better not get up to go to the bathroom, he would berate you when you got up,or worse...while you were gone and when you returned!

My sister was the brunt of one of his jokes...I laughed my assets off!!!

He was so funny 😂

Skip was a local virginia Beach icon in the 80s. We would often go see him perform at Sir Richard's and he was always approachable and personable off stage. I will always remember the comical sight off him steering his boat from atop of the tower above the cabin bobbing back and forth like a bouey in rough surf.

Ironic that his death was similar to that of Sam Kinison

Skip was my dorm mate in college.

Really funny dude and talented guitarist. 🤙

We saw Skip many times and always enjoyed him tremendously.

Loved him and Egor!

His wizard of oz skit was great.

Vulgar yet funny sometimes is he still alive I wonder

Always a good time

Igor omg I just remembered and I love little rubber ducks....

Sure do miss him. May he RIP.

He was awesome. Remember seeing him perform at the Jewish Mother and drinking Mooseheads. Also delivered pizzas at the beach and delivered to him at his houseboat.

RIP...

I remember him at the cave on 17th

Oh yeah ! Funny guy !

You didn't go to the bathroom during his show!!!

Where were you when you got your first real kiss? I was behind the Peoples Drug store at Pembroke Mall. I asked John Oatman to teach me how to kiss so I wouldn't embarrass myself when true love came along. I think he was a pretty good teacher! ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I went out with him a few times and I have to admit...he was a good teacher....

LOL!!! So Sandra, where did you get your first really good kiss???

In front of the fire station near Lynnhaven JH. My "boyfriend" Jeff gave me a kiss.

Where? Let's see....maybe at Aragona Rec center?? dang I am old...

In a phone booth on Atlantic Avenue.

my girlfriend's house, Chesopiean Colony

IN a Bar

Ryan Asmussen's front porch!

Behind the portable classrooms at Rosemont Elm. School!

Plaza Roller Rink

Baseball field at Hermitage

The Beach movie theater.

At a party in Brigadoon

The Princes Theatre...that's old...

I hope they were all memorable! Did you all leave it at just a kiss?

Not in VA BEACH

I can only say that practice makes perfect and boy did I like to practice this!!!

John Oatman as a kissing coach - wow!

Mine was in Norfolk - after a movie

Parking lot in the back of an El camino @ Shakeys Pizza on Little Creek! I was 8 and he was 11(Mike)

inside of a tent in my back yard.

I do

Me too!

I do. I also remember when the area code for Tidewater was 804

Bell Atlantic

I dated a guy in high school that lived in Hampton, I remember waiting for 11pm so the rates would be cheaper

🙋🏽

I do - you needed to dial 1, but not the area code

I do!

I do. I remember when we lived in the tidewater area

It was cheaper to go there than to call.

I remember, we moved to the peninsula for hubbys work. I was so used to calling my parents every day, I didn't think about it being long distance. Till I got the bill.

Yup

Heck, I still remember the fairy to get us there!
