bahahaha. I have to tear mine away from his beer-chugging, bloody knuckled, rugby playing friends.


My husband has to be torn away from World of Warcraft....he lives in a virtual world, lol. I'm sure he would love to come. :-)


Lol. NCtoDC, I feel your World of Warcraft pain. The husband is all about World of Warcraft or poker. Too bad we won't be up there until really late Thursday!


How late is really late??? Where in FL are you coming from?

That shit starts at 9am! I might stay Fri night, but I'm thinking not. Rather not pay for 2 nights if I don't have to-- especially fi I don't get a travel stipend

I had a fortunate experience. I hadn't been offered one even though I'm OOS, so I emailed to ask about it. The woman was very nice and told me that they'd actually emailed me the previous day. Who knows how much stuff would have been swept into the spam filter otherwise.

:lol: disregard me and my misinformation then! the only 18+ bar i have ever been to was big daddys before it closed. never been to the other bars on the strip besides bulls, i guess i just assumed they were also 21+. makes so much more sense to me now that the strip is 18+ haha

:? Not a fan of being told lies. They said they weren't giving them to in-staters yet. But they gave one to you and someone in Orlando. :evil:

As a seasoned Tallahassee partier, I'd like to note that of all the bars I've visited here, only Bulls and Poor Pauls are strictly 21+. Underage folks just tend to pay higher cover (at the places that charge). For those who wanted to get away from the UG scene, don't be discouraged though. Most underagers tend to frequent the strip, chubbys, 2020, Bajas, etc. Ajs has a fairly even split between over and underage people. The places downtown (Clydes, paradigm) are more for the older crowd but it depends what night and what time you go. Midtown is great for mid-twenties people.

Thanks for the heads up. It will be a lot easier in a year when she is 21 but for now I gotta work with what I got!

I'm dropping by Gville on my way up Thursday, I'll be happy to share any information I find out while I'm up there if anyone is interested.

I know I definitely would. I'm planning to stop in Gainesville on Saturday, but won't be able to see much for obvious reasons.

Here is the link to the name your own price section of the website: http://travela.priceline.com/promo/name ... ckid=HOTEL

After you input the city, dates, etc. the next page will ask for what part of the city you want to book a hotel, the campus is in the South section (#1).
