“Thursday, unless it’s a game night. That’s when they have the best drink specials.”

“I would say Tuesday. Thursday nights are big, too, but the bars I go to have cheap drinks on Tuesday nights. I guess it just depends on where you like to go.”

“Thursday. I don’t go out as much on Fridays because I want to be active and play sports or study on Saturday, but I don’t have any classes until noon on Fridays.”

“Probably Thursday. I know a lot of the girls on my floor don’t have any classes on Friday, so why not start the weekend early?”

LOL, I'm sure the parents enjoy knowing where their hard earned money goes to..."hey BettieSue, let's start saving before we have our kids, because when they go to college, they will drink it away." No wonder why the tuition is always going up! LOL

Samantha needs to back off the Tuesday/Thursday drinking binges. Those dark circles and lines under the eyes are awfully pronounced for someone that young.

That is soooo Jayhawk Blvd.

Thursday starts the weekend, no doubt about it. Ashleigh, Ashleigh, do not go into the light!! Try to take your most important class in a section that includes Friday morning, at least while you are underage. We lose so many bright, promising freshmen to alcohol related complications . . . social, physical, and academic.

On the Street carefully selects the location to insure the response it desires. Do you ever see them at WalMart or on the west side? Answer: NO

I can't believe they interviewed a freshman. Somebody email this link to her parents. As for the biggest drinking night, well stop day eve was always big. Then of course there's St. Patty's day, and New Year's Eve. It's hard to say what the biggest is. You should probably just ask the people who sell alcohol when they sell the most.

Whoa, it reeks of self-righteousness in here...

I'm sure none of you EVER drank before you were 21...

Change the legal drinking age to 18 again; get real.

You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning...

When I was a student it was like what Blue said.

The Hatter, The Sanctuary . . . we got some fogies up in here. Can I get me a 7th Spirit or The Stables (but I guess that became part of the Sactuary), Dirty Herbies, or Quantirll's Saloon?

Oh yeah...The Sanctuary. Some hot things certainly took place there. The burgers were perfect and multi-leveled deck was a great place to bond with (ahem) nature. Free tacos on Fridays too.

I didn't go to the Paladium too much, don't really recollect why that is . . .

Ugh!! Those stupid liquer cards. I knew it was a private club but since I was a minor I couldn't get a membership anyway and I was very happy the door people were either apathetic, nice, or easily swayed. Except for that one troll they had. I guess if you want to keep getting in you shouldn't let someone know how revolting you think they are. Good thing he didn't work all that often . . . or he'd be on balcony duty and I'd go in the basement.

Somewhere, the sun is already below the yardarm.

Ceallach 8 years ago

Sanctuary . . . now we're talking memories :) or even the Carriage Lamp!

Grundoon Luna 8 years ago

Not famliar with G.P. Lloyds . . . Mother's and Father's were on Iowa though and became the Sex-Change (Exchange) and the Slime-Out (Time-Out).

Grundoon Luna 8 years ago

Yuk Up/Down, The Gaslight and The Rock Chalk in their first incarnations were just a little before my time. My first illegal bar beer was in the Bierstube (sp).

trinity 8 years ago

ah and who can overlook johnny's? :) and what was that one darned place off of 6th, kinda opposite where the sanctuary was...grrr memory!

and there was also the playhouse, woowoo....

Grundoon Luna 8 years ago

Are you thinking of The Hideout, Trinity? Van Vleck's? Well, that was on 6th street.

Then there was Gammon's and Sgt. Preston's for the nouveau riches

I think she's a doll Godot. And from what I remember, my classload always had way more effect on the amount of sleep I got than my social life. 15-18 hours of class a week => 6-7 hours of sleep a night and not much time for drinking. 12-15 hours => 7-8 hours of sleep and plenty of time for bar hopping.

And speaking as a townie who has to deal with noisy people walking home at around 2am, I'd say Thursday and Saturday Nights seem to be the biggest night for students.
