I'm actually not a big night-life person. I very much have no interest in clubs at all, but do enjoy happy hour at local bars and I love a large variety of beers
Are the campus and students consumed by this nightlife?[/quote]
The only real clubs in NO are strip clubs, which can be "fun" but are a huge jack. NO is def more of a bar scene, an eclectic one at that. My friends in the LS obviously did not go out as often, but they still found time to do Happy Hour at Boot on Fridays (huge turnout) and Pat O's piano bar (great mix of people) on Sat. Both are not really the NYCish "nightlife" scene, more so just people kicking back and having a good time. There is also a really good beer bar on Magazine St
(forgetting the name for some reason..), among many other cool, quirky local spots. The Boot and Palms (main UG bars) can be shitshows at night (open till 3-5 AM) , but you are not missing much avoiding that crowd (mainly UG). You should definitely visit and check the city out for yourself, though.
note: if you like food, you will love NO[/quote]
Ms. Mae's, its home of the $1 drinks. Its a good drink in a small cup, but still a great deal.
ahh memories ( actually not THAT many actual memories
You said beer, thats the Bulldog. Very large selection. I did try to try them all, but failed. At least I got to keep the glasses.[/quote]
haha, I can't believe I forgot the name. All my glasses that I had at school were from there. I was never really a huge Mae's fan, in part because I got hooked up most places Uptown so price was less of an issue.
the real move is go to Snake and Jake's for a nightcap at 7 AM. used to do that after work every once in a while. not your most wholesome crowd, though. id only go with my friend who is a 6'5/270 lb/very imposing URM. always gotta watch out for whodis in NO[/quote]
At 7am I would probably be at the Trolley Stop Cafe.
Are you talking about Bamm?
