This Hidden Gem of America is Right Under Your Nose
Every year, once it gets close to graduation, graduating senior and their friends make one last trip to the Athens, Ohio bars together. During this trip, seniors make their way through every bar on Court Street ordering at least one drink from every bar.
I can easily remember my first time setting foot into my first bar on Court Street. I waited in line at The C.I., my new form of identification shaking in hand, nervous I wouldn't find my way through the party crowd waiting ahead of me- I get it. However, for you first timers, I promise it's not that bad and it can be a lot of fun.
To have a healthy night out on Court Street is very difficult to do. Some would say that it is impossible. I would agree with those people, but there may be some alternatives to a night on the town. Not that it is extremely healthy but it could easiliy save you a few bucks and you could feel better the morning after. These two startegies help me get through the night financially and socially. Many people go with these approaches too, as it works well for them and was big before spring break came.
So, you're a broke ass college student and you like the bar scene. WOW, great combination! I've bet you even woke up the next morning with an empty wallet or a low bank account. So that twenty dollars your parents just transferred over for "food" (sorry mom), isn't going to get you through the weekdays at the bars!
For many Ohio University students, The Pub may not be a familiar name. Many Bobcats may not have even heard of it. Those who have heard of it may consider it a "townie bar". And I'm sure for some, The Pub is just "that place between JBar and PawPurrs". Today, I'm here to tell you why The Pub is worth a visit.
We all know and love Court St., since freshman year, that is where most of us wanted to be on a Friday night, or Thursday, or Wednesday... probably Sunday as well. But if you're a senior and you've partaken in your fair share of shuffles you're probably feeling that there has to be more than just Court St. I'm glad to say that there are more options, in fact there are 4 very good options that are still within walking distance of where you might live.
Ohio University's family weekends allow students to share their favorite spots on campus and Court Street with their loved ones.

From dinner to drinks, Court Street in Uptown Athens is the place to be during dads weekend.
