Who’s Lady Pearl? Do you want to go around the world at the Salty Dog? Why is that building painted like a Holstein cow? You’ll discover the answer to all of these questions in downtown Gainesville. Just try and use the buddy system—you won’t break the heel of your new Steve Madden’s as easily if you have someone helping you drunkenly stagger down University Avenue to catch the last Later Gator at 2 a.m. There are also plenty of house parties propagating the stereotypical keg-induced debauchery. You should probably have an invite for these, though sometimes one is not required. If you’re absolutely desperate to forget about that calculus test you just took, check out The Courtyards, an apartment complex on 13th Street across from Tigert Hall. These apartments are notorious for numerous parties every weekend and even weekdays. The fraternities on campus frequently hold parties, too. But sorry guys—unless you’re in the frat hosting the party, you’ll probably be turned away.
If you are under 21, though, you can always go to the bars in Midtown, except for the Salty Dog or Balls. They will use an industrialized size Sharpie and draw giant "X's" on your hands, signifying that you cannot drink. If you do rub them off or try to for that matter, you will be kicked out immediately if you are caught.
