When I was in college, Canadian Moosehead was a treat as Budweiser dominated the markets and pizzeria joints (by the pitcher). Legal age was 18 when I arrived. Students could buy a six-pack or keg from Chapel Wines to roll to their room. A customary Old Campus welcome, first week, featured an array of tented bars, sponsored by Ican Tremember. Alcohol was never served in residential colleges or Commons --except for one or two extraordinary events I cannot remember. "Tailgate" parties were I thing I had no use for --too far, too cold, bad football. I heard wine, beer, and spirits were served at such "gatherings".
One of my roommates was a "belligerent drunk" sometimes. She had graduated in the same high school class as another roommate of mine. The two were long-time friends but not drinking buddies.
There were less than a handful of commercial estalishments in New Haven in walking distance equipped with proper wet bar. Anchor, Rudy's, Maury's. The Student Government Association (SGA) funded parties in residential colleges. Beer (by the keg) and non alcoholic beverages were served in darkened dining halls, cleared for dance. Ican Tremember party scheduling or pattern.
I have never drunk so much that I passed out, but I have wished I would. I was stationery at those times. But dancing on tables has occurred. < wipe tears > Once I climbed the Old Campus fence and electrocuted myself.
That's all I've got.
