Cover: none
Entertainment: usually
alternative rock jams on the stereo
Theme: decor is sailing boat
accessories, including a full sail
draped from the ceiling
Best Night: Friday buffet from 4-8
pm, but it gets crowded. A good
place to start the night any night,
meeting friends then moving out
on the town
Age Requirement: 21
Greek Quotient : 6
Location: on MAC, across from
the Riviera Cafe
Chow: decent menu, afways free
popcorn
Best Specials: Blue Marlin
specials, but you must be a
member of the Blue Marlin Club to
get them. Drink specials
everynight, but a bit pricey
Crowd: casual, with some people
playing backgammon, chess,
"break the ice" or talking· and eating
popcorn
Dress: casual leaning toward
preppy
Friendly Factor: easy to meet
folks if you're bold enough
Diversions: a breathalizer, pool
table and a condom machine in the
restroom
The Straight Poop: a night out to
America's Cup is enjoyable. It is
not the wasteland of the Riv, but
irs also not a place to dance or
throw up on your neighbor.
The Cup is a great place to go with
a group of friends to have a good
time and play with the army men .
that come with the -ci)mbat fuice.

pizza, sandwiches, pasta

Best Specials: Lunch special:
slice pizza, small salad and soft
drink for a few bucks
Crowd: laid-back, mellow liberals
Dress: anything goes
Friendly Factor: high
Diversions: wide-screen
television, CD-jukebox
The Straight Poop: The sign
reads: "Please wait to be seated."
And that's about the only formal
thing about Bilbos: - -
If you want to eat good, homemade
sandwiches or mouthwatering
pizza with the most
wholesome ingredients to be
found in a college pizza joint, go to
Bilbos. You'll be more than
satisfied with the food, but may
have to run about 1 O miles, do 100
sit-ups and ride your bike for a day
to burn off all the calories
consumed at this spot
Bilbos is best known for its food.
However, the local restaurant also
has a full -stocked bar installed
right up front. While the kitchen
crew works to satisfy your
tastebuds, the bartenders .brew up
some drink specials that'll satisfy
both your thirst and budget.
With $1 .50 Bloody Mary specials
on Sunday, or $1.50 Cuervo shots
on Friday, Bilbos' bar is a must if
you stop in for a bite to eat. And if
you're not hungry, stop in anyway.
Get a drink, watch a sports event
on the wide-screen TV and check
out the crowd. You never know
who you might bump into. Maybe
Coach Perles, I hear he likes pizza

Diversions: basketball, tvs, pool
. The Straight Poop: the best
place in town Tuesday nights for
new music and dancing. The djs
are generally hip and play your
requests, but you may have to wait
up to half an hour for drinks during
Friday's happy hour madhouse.
The decor is unusual, but pretty
comfortable - especially if you get
a booth. it's a good place to watch
people and relax or dance and get
funky if you're so inclined.

Best Night: Margaritaville on
Tuesday
Age Requirement: none, 21 for
lounge
Greek Quotient: doesn't apply
Location: In Okemos, on Marsh
Road across from Meridian Mall
Chow: mexican food, not bad but
pricey for the quality
Best Specials: cheap margaritas
and huge drafts during
Margariaville, with free nachos
thrown in
Crowd: yuppies and families
Dress: whatever you like
Friendly Factor: high during
Margaritaville when folks are
getting bombed
Diversions: food and tvs
The Straight Poop: the food isn't
bad and isn't cheap, but if you're
looking to get away from EL for a
weeknight, Margaritaville is the
night.
While the lounge fills up quickly
with hordes of yuppies and others
looking to quench a healthy thirst,
you can usually find a table and a
tall, 20-oz. draft of Labatt's for just
over a buck if you're willing to
come early or wait. The food isn't
too bad, but.the price can limit your
appetite. Taco salad gets decent
reviews, but if you're going for the
brews and Margaritas it might be a

The Straight Poop: Sorry young
ones, but that's the golden rule at
the Landshark - 21 and over after
9 pm at East Lansing's
underground, drinkingentertainment-
eating joint.
For those fortunate to have valid
ide'ntification showing they are 21
years old, the Landshark is a
definite spot you won't want to
miss. But that depends on the
mood you're in, the crowd you're
looking for, and most importantly ...
the drink specials your wallet can
afford.
The Landshark offers its clientele a
casual, laid-back atmosphere
where people can feel comfortable
resting their elbows on tables,
spilling beer on themselves while
chugging it down and killing a shot
with a friend. In fact, the infamous
SHARKBOWL - an alcoholic,
punch potent enough to put
permanent grins on the faces of
four-was made for thosewho
are looking to get loaded and have
fun doing it.

Drink specials are a daily thing
here.
And the crowd . '..
Greeks galore, at least ThursdaySaturday.
Depending on how
much of "Hey guys, I just downed
my 30th shot," or "Oh Muffy, I love
your sweater! Can I borow it?" you
can handle, you might find a-nightin-
the~life- of- a- Greek exciting (or
maybe amusing?) But if Greeks
are Geeks in your book, you might
want to think twice about entering
this bar. Unless of course you
ignore them, which is what
everyone does anyway, right?
And one last word about the
Landshark: Give it a shot ... and
then have one.

not into a sorority sing along, then.
there are shirmp and buffalo wings
from 3 to 9 p.m. on Fridays, for a
mere two dollar cover charge. If
wings aren't your bag, they also
have a full burger menu. P.T.'s
runs drink specials Monday
through Friday, and you have to be
21 to get in after four.
It doesn't sound like too bad of a
place right? Well, if you have
never been there before and are
thinking about trying it, here are a
couple suggestions: first, dress
accordingly, this place rates a 1 O+
on the g(r)eek scale, and if you
don't have something Polo on,
they have stick on horses at the
door. Second, it's a good idea to
go with a bunch of people, that
way there will be someone to talk
to who might not care about the
last time you were in Europe, or
the last time you had jetted off to
New York to go shopping.
If you feel like going out with a
bunch of people, getting a big
booth, maybe shooting some pool,
and taking advantage of some
pretty good drink specials, then
P.T.'s might be a good place to try.
It is possible to have a good time
there - at least that's what I've
heard.

Twenties decor, very comfortable
atmosphere, excellent service
Best Night: every night has
something to offer, depending on
what you're looking for.
Age Requirement: none
Greek Quotient: 1-2 (negligible)
Location: 225 Ann St., across
from Pinball Pete's
Chow: full menu, seafood
especially good
Best Specials: one of the widest
selections of imported beers and
wines in town
Crowd: very cool crowd; small
groups of people comfortably
chatting ·
Dress: casual to a little dressy
Friendly Factor: not a pick-up
bar by any means, but it's not
impossible to approach someone
Diversions: a good variety of
tasteful music played over the PA
The Straight Poop: What I really
think is great about Small Planet is
how versatile it is; you can have an
affordable lunch between classes
with a friend or an elegant candlelit
dinner with that special someone.
You cari come with a group and
take in some blues or get bombed
at the bar together.
Whatever your interests, Small
Planet can offer you a relaxing
evening away from the cliques and
the garishness of many other East
Lansing nightspots. I hope you try
it if you haven't already, because
it's one of my favorite places in
town.

Best Night: ?
Age Requirement: none

down the street from Hubbard
Chow: full me~l,J, pricey
Best Specials~ thick milkshakes
Crowd: older, hip-type yuppies
and their kids
Dress: jeans and a sweater or
polo shirt
Friendly Factor: not to tough to
meet people on the dance floor,
real tough if you've got a burger in
your face in a booth
Diversions: music, dancing,
occasional bands, staff dance
routines
The Straight Poop: this is not a
totally bad place, but the food is
too expensive for the quality and
the beer ain't cheap.
It has a certain sentimental
attraction for the older set and a
curiousity draw for us young welps
When the patio is open it adds a
whole new dimension to an
otherwise older yuppie-dominated
joint. I could do without the staff
dance routines, however, they
were a little more palatable than
the patty melt I ordered.

Entertainment: live jazz
Saturdays; trivia Tuesdays;
occasional poetry readings

worthwhile
Age Requirement: none

Crowd: mixture of college
students _and older folks
Dress: casual
Friendly Factor: not a place to
pick anyone up at
Diversions: two tvs, house music
played on CD played over PA
The Straight Poop: My
impression of the Varsity is that it is
a restaurant first and a bar second.
So while it might not be the best
place to go if you want to swing on
the chandeliers or hook up with a
passing gal or guy - that shit is a
real drag anyway -you can forget
about it and relax. Round up a
group and hang at the Varsity,
'cause you won't reget it.
lrs particularly fun in the warmer
part of the year, when you can sit
out on the patio with a pitcher, a
sandwich, and a friend and watch
the sun set over beautiful East
Lansing. The folks at the Varsity
have created a very comfortable
atmosphere with good food and
drink, and should be commended
for the entertainment they've been
adding in recent months.

regardless of his partner's wishes. It
is balanced by women who make a .
game of leading men on, then denying'
them. Date rape is a grey behavior
which often results from poor communication
among couples who are
learning about courtship. Sometimes
a woman is being raped, sometimes a
man is being (figuaratively) raped,
sometimes it is an act of rough
intercourse and not rape at all.
Rather than sticking men with
complete responsibility for being
rapists or, alternatively, making
women completely responsible for
controlling sex, maybe it is about time
we began looking at the ways we
avoid communicating our sexual likes
and dislikes. Maybe if members of .
both sexes shared equal adult responsibility
for how sex is working out, we
would not have the degree of pain and
discomfort illustrated by the sign in
Baker Hall. I assume a woman wrote
it only because women seem more
aware of their suffering. He has no
idea of why he did what he did, but
he's tiurting too. Raising consciousness
means ending this shit.

Boston rockers Extremely good
Boston has always been a
hotbed of rock music, as well as a
launching pad for several bands.
Aerosmith, Boston, and The
Cars all have Beantown roots.
Now, another band from Boston
hopes to make a splash in the
music world. They are Extreme,
and their self-titled album scores
as one of the most impressive
debuts of the late 80's, ranking
with Tracy Chapman and Liying
Colour's Vivid.
Extreme has been the secret
of the- Boston nightclub scene for
the past few years. In 1989, the
quartet signed a contract with
A&M Records, thus the album,
and the obvious comparisons to
the aforementioned bands, especially
Aerosmith.
This album comes right at the
listener in the first track, "Little.
Girls". The song moves at a nice
pace, and features some fine
guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt.
Bettencourt and vocalist Gary
Cherone write all the music and
lyrics, which could explain why the
drummer, Paul Geary, is not given
much of an opportunity to exhibit
creativity. Or the band could just
Signals". Badger's bass line
steals "Flesh and Blood" and then
Bettencc>urt's solo snags it right
back - it's fantastic.
Cherone's voice is reminiscent
of Steve Tyler's (of Aerosmith). It
twangs along among the higher
notes, and has the capacity to be
strong and forceful, but at times it
can be soothing and melodic.
.----------------- be saving something for the next
The album's content is as
varied as one could hope to get
from any band classified as heavy
metal. The songs range .from the
frolicking "Wind Me Up" and "Little
Girls" to the sensitive "Rock A Bye
Bye" and "Watching, Waiting", to
the accusing "Kid Ego" and the
anti-establishment "Smoke SigSpring
Break nals".

album. Instead, this metal band
prefers to utilize the vocal talents
of all four members, leading to
some great harmonies, an uncharacteristic
feature among metal
albums.
Bettencourt has many moments
of brilliance scattered
throughout the album, as doe~
bassist Pat Badger. Most notably
are "little Girls", "Teacher's Pet"
(Sort of like Van Halen's "Hot for
Teacher'' come true), and "Smoke
Extreme does not yet have the
sheer energy of some of its more
experienced contemporaries such
as Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Bon
Jovi, Van Halen, and The Cult.
However, this album shows that
with a little more work in the studio
and on the road, they will be one
of the premier pop/metal bands in
America.

Trip the light fantastic with Going Public
by LYNNE HOFFMAN
uR-1 music correspondent
To begin with, you can't overlook
the fact that Going Public is what one
might call a Chick Band - there were
so many women there it looked like a
hairspray convention.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing,
though, because the band pulls in
quite a crowd of men and women alike
who all have a great time on the
dance floor. And even.the band
members frolick through the crowd
between sets.
And eventhough the Hanna
Ballroom has a different kind of
atmosphere than many college
students are used to (it makes one
like being at a formal dance or wedding
reception), it was able to hold the
kind of crowd the Going Public draws.
However, a bar like Rick's, where
the band can be seen regularly,
provides the atmosphere Going
Public's style is made for.
But enough of the setting, let's get
down to the music ...
It was good! The band showed a
flair for the rare before reverting to the
norm.
Opening with classic but not so
well known songs - like tunes by The
Replacements and The call -
Going Public showed their diversity.
But when their playlist went mainstream,
it was kind of disappointing.
BEven at these times, however, they
played good dance tunes that packed
the dance floor.
Their renditions of more wellknown
dance songs earned thumbs
up, for the most part. New Order's
"How Does if Feel?" was most outstanding,
as were their R.E.M. covers.
As a matter of fact, with their talent for
R.E.M. covers, the band could do a
RE.Mania show.
Going Public's guest singer,
known only as "Some Chick" (no one
would give her name), had a very
appealing voice, and her version of
"Masquerade" would even put a smile
on Terri Nunn's (from Berlin) face. ·
A suggestion: The guys might
want to consider putting her on the
permanent roster and giving her a
name . .
Another suggestion: Don't attempt
to sing Fine Young cannibals. And
Rap???? One more rip, guys: some
of the U2 songs came off a bit stale,
but keep trying.
On the original music front,
"Love's Calling" was impressive, and if
it is any indication of their own work,
we wouldn't mind hearing more.
The audience reaction was mostly
positive to all their songs. And in a
·non-scientific bathroom p.oll, the
bimbo response was: "They're
Grrrrreat!"
But Going Public is more than a
Chick Band; They proved to be most
entertaining and the show was well
worth the price of admission.
Hey Blondie, don't miss Dagwood's
Statistics ... yuk.
It may be Wednesday, but I want
to go out.
Hopping into the "Behind Bars
Tirade Mobile," I notice that the gas
gauge is not on E.
It's below it.
Shit. Five bucks for a pitcher and
no money for gas.
Dagwood's!
I knew someone who knew
someone who went there once, but he
was an ass, so he probably just said
that to impress his friends. So I was
apprehensive, being that the place
that looked like somewhere where
Hunter S. Thomson would go to get
major story lines.
Going, I noticed no Hell's Angels,
but they've got a bar, a roomful of
tables, no pool tables, a juke box, two
T. V.'s, both showing the basketball
game. Lots of NBA crap on the wall,
restrooms the size of closets, trophies
all over and - not to be overlooked -
great burgers and chilli at low prices.
. BUT NO TABLE SHUFFLEBOARD.
Ah, but this was no bowling alley
(though probably the same crowd).
Creaky booths, pitchers that were
$4.50 (Bud), and cheap food (under
$3 for most of the stuff on the menu).
No bands, no cover, cheap food.
I like it.
The waitress was rude - rude as
