    Tucson is a dump, the woman at the university however are not. No one is going to question if the kid chooses Arizona. Unfortunately the fact that the city has street signs that are not in English probably won't affect his decision much.

    Re: Ryan Anderson Visit

    Back in the day, my favorite hangout was Lost and Found above Cy's. I wasn't so much into top 40 pop music and the loud craziness of places like Cy's or the Cave In. I just loved the laid back atmosphere of Lost and Found where you could just quietly enjoy a good beer, your friends, and they also played great music up there.

    Went to Thumbs a lot too, to enjoy a good beer and some pool after classes. Will never forget the "short" sawed off pool stick they had which came in handy quite often since the pool table was too close to one of the walls. Great memories.

    Also enjoyed going and listening to The Sundogs play wherever they were at. First time I saw them was at Dugan's Deli I believe? But I saw them play so many times, it's hard to remember now.

    Lot's of great Veishea memories too which I can't really talk about on here. Of course, playing keg softball with a keg on 2nd base was always fun. Lots and lots of great house parties too.

    I've often wondered why they don't close off Welch Avenue from Lincoln Way all the way up to Welch Avenue Station and make it into a ped mall like environment? I think that would be nice.

    There were potential plans for that, but the price tag was currently too much, and after the 2014 VEISHEA riots, I do not believe that will not be happening anytime soon, but maybe down the road.

    I would not yet rule out San Diego St which is 90 minutes away from his hometown.

    I mentioned the cave in. See my previous posts in this thread. Idk if that was the place with the plastic light up disco floor.....but we found it during a Sips remodel. Under the wood floor in the north west wing.

    Peoples went under when I was in college. Believe it was 2008 or 2009 when it went under.

    Re: Ryan Anderson Visit

    Rumblings by some were that the hope was that an Arizona visit wouldn't happen. But since it did, it is natural that many feel like he'll be going there. But I hope their gut feeling is wrong.

    Yep. It was Tazzles for awhile. Then i believe Tazzles took over Dean's list but kept the Dean's list name.

    I'm not doing so hot right now. The contacts are a little foggy and the old timey bar posts are out in full force.
