RIP my college bar

did you ever have one of those bars in college or home or wherever that was your bar? The Heidelberg in Columbia, MO was my bar. I loved that bar. go to church, go get drunk. I puked in the gutter in front of that bar on my 21st birthday. I ate way too many fries at that bar and always ordered the chef salad for lunch. it was my Cheers bar.

on monday morning, I woke to the sad news that my bar burned to the ground. My college home is gone and I can't go home again. Its a bar but I'm in mourning.

please tell me someone else here has a bar that they love? and if you do, please make sure you don't take it for granted.

I know exactly how you feel. My high school hang out was a pool hall. I spent every friday and saturday night there and just about every night there in the summers. It was the coolest place to be back then.

The year before I graduated high school the whole strip mall closed and eventually was torn down. It's a grocery store now That was a sad sad day when they closed that place. We had no place fun to go my senior year.

I have 3 favourite bars and they are all in 5 mins walking distance of each other and it means I can get drunk and not worry about getting lost. So if one burns down I will have another 2 to go to

We had a college hang out. Went there every Tues and Thurs night and sometimes on weekends. I should drive by it and see if it's still there. I know it changed names and ownership, but last time I was there it still looked about the same as it did when I was in school. The place was good times.

My favorite campus resturant/hang out was closed. There is a strip of Victorian houses behind our campus. One is a store and they put a bar in there, then it changed to a resturant. They had the most incredible patty melts I've ever had.

Their contract was up and they got outbid by Einstein's Bagel. I plan to boycott. At least they can't alter the building because it's a historic landmark.

They also closed our campus bar. Apparently they think we'll be happy with McDonalds and Starbucks alone.

Nope.

Raised near Ken Barlow's backyard....that would be Golden Valley.

Went to Robbinsdale Armstrong. Go Falcons!

University billiards? CR's? Icky. Went to those places once my place closed but it wasn't the same at all.

I'm in St. Louis. Lived here my entire life and a lot of my friends went to school there.

I had a roomie/friend that worked for KARE...she said that in real life, Ken Barlow was the hottest on-air guy in the TC!

I like Ken!
