Rick's vibe is usually a notch below the balls-out brewski-bombing vigor of the core student hangouts. Still, it is a bar, so don't go expecting a crowd of coffee-sippin' intellectual types. Highlights include shuffleboard, pool and delightfully grumpy owner Rick Younger. "It's just kind of the same old shit," Younger says of his bar's amenities. "No one goes square dancing or anything."
