After a night of snow/rain/slush pellets and wind of Dust Bowl proportions, it’s snow wonder that we want to go out tonight and celebrate the return to October (just in time for November to come sweeping around the corner). Whiskey Republic is celebrating Halloween tonight with drinks, dancing, costumes, and $4 cover. You’d think they owe us after dropping the ball on Wednesday night. Let’s celebrate Snowtoberfest with our very own Drunktoberfest!
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. [Read more →]
The ProJo posted a video of a demolition crew tearing down the old I-195 bridge on Wickenden and, in turn, destroying the “Mona” mural that always kinda smiled at us on our way to FishCo (R.I.P.).
when did stripper poles replace
all the choice seafood?
No FishCo, thank you. As always, please leave your Fishkus in the comments.
We at Blog Daily Herald are working to continue providing you with up to date information regarding last night’s FishCo debacle. Here is what we know:
“Yes! It’s open!”
- One of Brown’s FishCo liaisons says that the bar will be renovated in the next month and open in time for the new year
- Fishco’s website says that it will be holding its Grand Re-Opening on New Year’s Eve
“Find a new Wednesday hot spot”
- The FishCo sign has been taken down from the building’s facade
- The news was originally heard from a representative of the University’s Subcommittee on Alcohol and Other Drugs, which has members from the Undergraduate Council of Students, ”student representatives from SSDP, Greek Council, Student Athletic Advisory Council, Grad Student Council, and one student from substance-free housing”
- Cops busted 26 underage drinkers at the venue in November
If you have more information, please comment below.
Students desiring to take to the picket lines can do so by spreading the word. A Brown student has created a “Free Fishco” t-shirt to rally for cause.
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…
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.
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.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a fishku last night! Enjoy:
Life is like fishco
I fall and then I get up
Again and again
On the dance faloor
She would never fuck you, bitch
It’s time to stop it
I’m fishing for drank
Walking the mean streets of Prov
Be careful, my friends
That’s it, ladies and gents. Want to submit a fishku next week? Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your poem, and leave the rest to us.
