Best College-kid Pub Crawl

Crown & Anchor Pub; Showdown Saloon; Hole in the Wall

No wheels? No problem. You can still slurp your sorrows away in style – and safety (no drawing straws for designated driver, either). Back in our foot-bound college days, we liked to start the drinking day midafternoon at the Crown & Anchor for a pitcher on their patio. Just a short walk down Dean Keeton will get you to the Showdown, where you can wash down a couple of pints with a game of pool or darts. Then stroll, er, stumble your way down the street to the Hole in the Wall, where you can grab a greasy bite to eat and catch a band. And drink some more beer. Did we mention beer? Mmm, college.
