    Lumpys

    For whatever reason some good college memories from Lumpys just poped into my head. Besides the sewer water on the floor, the who knows what on the couches, and the malaria I got in the bathroom there, Lumpys was flipping awesome. It was a very sad day when they closed that place down.

    I don't know what it was about that place, but it just made drinking PBR in a can fun.

    It was the dive of all dives. A classic. Can't beat the quarter draws on Friday nights.

    FYI.... what other bar could you go to the bathroom right on the floor and get away with it?

    Re: Lumpys

    A little piece of me died when they closed.

    I remember being mad when I'd wake up after a night at Lumpy's and find out I had spent a full $10.

    Also, no discussion of Lumpy's is complete without a discussion of where you urinated in the bar, that wasn't a toilet bowl. I was a bathroom trash can guy myself.

    My buddy always tagged the bathroom sink. I feel bad for anyone who bothered to wash their hands after using that bathroom.

    Major points for creativity on that one. You know that 15 minutes later some drunken fool stepped up to the table and used his shirt to mop up what he thought was beer on the table. Then he woke up the next morning wondering why he smelled like urine. Well done sir.

    If you frequented a place like Lumpys, chances are you weren't the type to wash your hands often.

    Very true.

    I always got a laugh thinking about some prissy guy who had gotten drug in there against his will, had gone to the bathroom all grossed out, and went to wash his hands, not knowing what he was in for.

    Re: Lumpys

    On my buddy's 21st, he got kicked out for being too drunk (a good portion of which I believe was my fault since I was pouring beer on him), he went home, changed clothes, came back for a while and then got kicked out again.

    Basically, a pretty good night.

    I remember playing in the Campustown Masters one year when they built putt-putt holes in each of the bars and you walked around and got wasted all afternoon. The hole at Lumpys was a ramp and the whole was a toilet. It seemed pretty fitting at the time.

    Count me as one who went in the sink multiple times. This was 19yrs ago too so that sink has seen its share of whizz.

    Re: Lumpys

    It really blows my mind sometimes how universally Lumpy's patrons just urinated in various spots in that bar. It was like an unspoken challenge to find a new place to go.

    Getting the boot from that place for being too drunk is the type of thing that legends are made of.

    It's like getting kicked out of the Backstreet Boys for being too metro. It just doesn't make sense.

    Yep... I am sure that the building code required them to have a toilet in there but they really could have taken it out because it never got used. I would say more but since it is the lunch hour I would hate to make anybody get sick.
