    $1 Pint night

    Seeing as I just got back from said title at Welch Ave. Station, I was just wondering who else was there/what other drink specials people hit up in Ames during the week.

    Also, if any alumni of ISU want to chip in with what drink specials were back in the day, that'd be cool too.

    Agreed, but $1 pints of Olde Main beer at Welch Ave suits me better. Closer to home and better atmosphere.

    Yeah it's a great time. Gotta get there early (before 9pm) or else there is a wait to get inside.

    Re: $1 Pint night

    When I've had Olde Main beer at other establishments, it hasn't been nearly as good as at Olde Main itself.

    Hmm strange, I've never noticed the difference at Station compared to Olde Main... Although after #7 or so, the ability to taste efficiently starts to leave the body.

    Maybe it's changed. I had Olde Main beer a couple times at Corner Pocket a couple years ago, and it was just awful. I haven't tried it at any other places because I figured it would blow. And I love Olde Main beer.

    Re: $1 Pint night

    I had Olde Main in Des Moines (El Bait Shop) last week and it was right on the money. Usually younger breweries have consistency issues early on. I haven't had a pint or bottle of Olde Main that was "off" for about 1.5-2 years.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Wed night = mug night at Dean's List (Where everyone can be a scholar!)

    Thurs night = Drinkin' with Lincoln at Tazzles ($5 cover, free drinks all night)

    Fri night = penny pitchers at The Zone on Main St. from 7-10, then Tazzles for any silver coin buys you a drink (or maybe that was Sat? it's been a long time)

    I don't even know what these bars are named these days, last I knew DL is Big Shots, Tazzles is now Sips, and The Zone is ???

    The Zone is DG's Taphouse now, which is actually a great bar.

    When I was an undergrad we did:

    Thursday-Free Papa John's Pizza at Mickey's followed by $4.25 pitchers at WAS ($3.75 pitchers of PBR!!)
    Friday-Lumpy's quarter draws til midnight OR The Zone Penny Pitchers till 10pm

    Nowadays:

    Wednesday - I like Pint Night at OMBC or 32oz pitchers of New Belgium beers for 6.00 at Cafe B.
    Thursday - Drink alone in front of TV while wife looks on disapprovingly
    Friday - Whatever is on "Clearance" at DG's followed by Karaoke at the Fox!

    Re: $1 Pint night

    Any silver coin, any drink (beer or well drinks) was the best special back in the day (18yrs ago).

    99 cent pitchers was a good one as well

    You aren't the only one. I still try and have one there every now and then and still dislike it.
    It also doesn't sit well with me the next morning....
