|Who wants to get 'Pub'bed up?|

In honor of my visit to PubII the other night, here are a few reasons why Pub Wednesdays are the bee’s knees.
1. It’s Wednesday: Nothing helps young adults like us prepare for the real world like getting out of night class on Wednesday and tying one on. The reason this is so is because as productive, employed members of society mid-week partying is ill-advised. Many people know this and choose to stay away from watering holes if they can. You have to know what it’s like to make that irresponsible decision before you can rightly take the high ground next time.
2. It’s crowded: There are men and women who just seem to have a knack about navigating a crowded room. There are also men and women who have no clue. We Redbirds can take pride in being members of the first group. Take any of us to a barbecue or a church picnic full of ‘blue hairs’ and slow pokes and watch the magic unfold. A crowded Pub is also a good place for a fella to lose any pee-shyness he’s had in the past. I admit I was a pee-shy kinda guy. But at the Pub, all eyes are on you to get the job done, and fast. Thanks for glaring at me, men, it’s helped me in so many ways.
3. PITCHERS! Economics is important, and when you can fill your cup up four times for four dollars, that really isn’t bad price-wise. And when it starts to getting late in the evening, people who bought pitchers but are leaving tend to be generous about their leftovers—obviously, they can’t take it with them when they leave (a shame). Twice in my career I’ve inherited a good amount of beer simply because some nice people who wanted to leave hadn’t finished. Fine by me; in fact, I consider it good etiquette to try as hard as you can to drink as much of that free beer as you can.
4. Radio Grace: It isn’t uncommon to run into all sorts of different friends at the bar. Such was the case last night when I ran into my friend Grace, who I know from my days working with the fine folks at our campus radio station, WZND. If I ever mention her again in future blogs, she’ll be called Radio Grace. Anyway, she told me she was reading some of my stuff (bless her heart) and decided I should write about her. Well, here you go, Radio Grace. Of all the wonderful reasons to hang out at the Pub, and there are literally thousands of them, you made it here! We all hope to hear more from you in the future!
