This short list of my 5 favorite 'bars' during college is to break the negativity of Leach's status, our lack of a basketball team, X games on TV where we had football, and the way our season ended in the CB. I was at Tech in the 80's, I would be interested in hearing about different eras and what you thought I missed in the 80's. Of course, I take away all events at the fraternity house....so establishments only.
#5- Fat Dawg's- This place shut down sometime during my first or second senior year. Utlimate force (and other bands) were a blast to watch here....great place to admire the female student also.
#4-Oyster Bar- Either location, you were going to have a good time and tip a few back. Ever tried a 'dirty Larrry' at either place? Just say no.
#3-The Spoon- Just tell your UT friends to meet you for Everclear margaritas and it made this place cool. The place was always packed and had a pretty good history of some fights.
#2- Jazz- Who doesn't like cheap pitchers of warm beer? I don't know why, but this place was just fun....why couldn't they get the beer cold enough?
#1- Depot/Beer Garden- No place better for sure from April-September. Really never spent much time inside, but the beer garden was a home away from home.
