Life after (FishCo) death: When fakes won’t work

Olives on North Main
An easy stroll down the hill
Viva la Meatball!

Oh, Colosseum
New hub of debauchery
18-plus is huuuuge.

This morning’s Herald featured an article comparing Olives and Colosseum, the two bars trying to fill the Wednesday night void following FishCo’s demise last semester. In light of FishCo’s underage patron woes, both profiles address the “strict identification-checking policy” at the new venues. Before attempting to use your “less than legitimate” form of identification, you might want to check out the “Do’s and Don’ts of Faux Identification” on BlogDailyWashingtonSquare (NYU Local). While some of the tips are New York specific, most of them hold true to Providence as well. Continue Reading


Blorgchiving: When FishCo sold fish!

From the March 8, 1985 Brown Daily Herald

Dearly departed,
when did stripper poles replace
all the choice seafood?


R.I.P. FishCo (actually)

Well, this sucks.  Despite conflicting reports as to whether or not FishCo would in fact be reopening in the new year, a new message on their website has confirmed our worst fears- FishCo is no more:

No FishCo, thank you.  As always, please leave your Fishkus in the comments.


BREAKING: FishCo Confusion

There have been conflicting reports regarding the future of our beloved FishCo:

Another source says that FishCo will actually be open come January…let’s hope they’re correct! We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything more concrete.

I already had an outfit picked out for FishCo Halloween 2011…


BREAKING: The End of an Era — RIP Fishco

According to the Brown University Subcommittee on Alcohol and Other Drugs, FishCo has been closed for good. More to come as soon as we hear more. We loved you FishCo. You brought us so many debauchery-filled nights we will never forget (if we ever remembered them in the first place).

Please comment below with your condolences and Fishkus.

UPDATE: FISHCO MAY BE STAYING OPEN AFTER ALL…


Breaking news: FishCo closed tonight

Yes, your Wednesday night plans have been officially ruined. According to a Facebook event created to disseminate this information, FishCo will be closed tonight for “some remodeling and maintenance work.” Bummer.

But to make matters worse, the club’s website has some even more distressing information:

Manager’s Note: OK just to clear up all the confusion, we will NOT be closing for renovations UNTIL DEC 5th!!!!!!! RE-OPENING JAN 1ST!!!!! STAY TUNED FOR UNDATES!!!! RENOVATIONS HAVE BEGUN!!!!!

I’m sorry, clear up confusion? So you’re not closed until December 5th, but you’re reopening January 1st?

Regardless, looks like Brown students will have to find some other way to amuse themselves on Wednesday nights.
