1. Are there any bars with a good beer selection?
Yeah, I agree with woe about Chapterhouse. They have a pretty large selection. Also, the Bandwagon Brewpub in the commons is relatively new. I don't know much about it, as I haven't been yet. Dunno if their beer is good. I'm an IPA person, but ppl keep talking about their Raspberry Jalapeno beer.

I think ppl tend to go to the same places. It's a small town. But you won't have a lot of time for going out anyway.

Yeah, some. It's not going to be like a big city, of course, but stuff comes through. Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Flaming Lips, etc came to Cornell proper, but there are other venues around town. Castaways is a common one. You might want to check out:

Really depends on the person. A lot of ppl like to go to clubs, it seems.

Depends on what you're interested in. There is good hiking and snowshoeing nearby.
