Rush to the bar before 5. 2 for 1 drafts. Wait til they start stamping forcover charges. Ask for said stamp to come back in. Rush home and take a shower, with one hand. Hold the other arm out of the shower so as to not get the stamp wet on stamped hand. Get dressed. Go back to Flo and Eddies. Get in free. Have more beer.

Loved the deck in the Spring, Summer and Fall.

I liked to get there early and post up at the tall table with my back to the wall near the entrance. That way you could see the trim as it came in.

I spent a ton of student loan money in that place, which really sucked for about 6 years after college.

I went once when I was a junior in highschoo, and I even ate the cheesesticks.... and I don't remember anything extravagant. Was it the cool bar before the Bistro, Mugs, Whiskey Blues , cotton district bars yada yada yada came along?.... I know it burned

I cant imagine it was much cooler than having 5 bars at one intersection (maxwell and university) like there is now in the cotton district

Cool inside and cool patio. Definitely one of the reasons it was good was b/c it was almost the only game in town so you always had a good crowd. I definitely wouldn't trade the current bar scene now to have Flo & Edie's back. however, it would definitely be competitive with the bars there now and with the locaction, I'm guessing would be the main party bar in that area, with Bin 612, sushi martini, etc. being more pregame, older crowd locations.

Any old timers disagree?</p>

Drinking that while drifting across the grass flats of Pinellas and Pasco Counties, Florida catching Reds and Specs. Or heading out about 75 miles off-shore for some reef donkeys, smokers and mahi</p> Flo and Eddies was about the only place to go when I was in school other than Ricks, Cheers and Tavern. Most of the chicks went there. I heard the owner burned it down on purpose, anyone else hear that?

Dave's: You could still smoke so at night it was almost unbearable for the non-smoker. On the other hand, you could walk to the outside "patio" and more than likely get high thanks to a friendly hippie. It was always a great place to go in the afternoon to watch a game and eat. Cheapest drinks ever when I was there, too (75 cent wells). It got a lot less crowded in the summer session, and usually had some great bands.

Rick's: Basically the "club" of the group. Never really was a fan.

Flo's: As laid back as Dave's, but cleaner and with less dirty hippie tail running around. It was definitely the place to go when underage, and the best place to go fishing for sorority girls. Mugshots kind of turned into the new Flo's for a while, but not quite the atmosphere of a spring afternoon on the patio with a sampler platter and a cold pitcher.

Old Venice: Too small, too crowded, drinks were expensive (relative to other Starkville bar prices). Never was a fan.

This could be it's own thread, but did anyone ever go to the Landing on any day besides Sunday? I want to say there was a Thursday crowd that went, but Thursday nights were primarily for getting to Flo's as early as you could.

Cheer's was a low class Rick's - so true

Sometimes Thursdays were road trip days. First head to the refuge. Then to the landing when it got dark. Then to Flo's to shut it down. Drink all weekend and sober up at the Landing on Sunday. Take a 6 pack in a bag of ice home with you.

AzzurriDawg4
08-25-2010, 09:53 AM
I can barely remember because they did a 4 for 1 special one night each week and it caused memory loss. Whatever it was, it was short lived.

Basically for me it was Flos as the bread and butter (Wed/Fri/Sat), Landing on Sundays and the occasional Thursday, Ricks when it was time to go slumming and the random trip to Dave's, and some Thursday nights at the Hunt Club right when it opened. It really is amazing how far the town has come since 2000.

Edited to add the occasional Wednesday night at Classix in Columbus.

ShrubDog
08-25-2010, 09:55 AM
Sunday nights at the Landing were always top notch.

Twothings about the Landing were they had 50 pool tables and you could buy a 6-pack of Neutral Lite for 4$ and came completely iced down in a plastic ice bag for easy travel.

I think you could have a bar and grill or rib shack or catfish place or italian eatery there as long as you fix it up and market it right. There are enough young professionals and adults down s. montgomery to support that place.
Have a band on the weekends and local guitarists weeknights.

The biggest waste of a goldmine right now is State Theatre. There should be a band in there every night of the week. Not your local bands. Get some up and comers in, let your locals open.

oh, and Richey's is now England Dan's.</p>

or, for ONE particular moment in time I would do again: Ice cold barley pop on our trailer under the scoreboard at the Dude, during a Regional final against FSU. Burke Masters made that my favorite beer ever.

I haven't been back to Starkville much since the college days, but I think the Hotel Chester used tobe the Statehouse Hotel.

For a short period in around 1997-1998,The Statehouseopened the bar up to college kids and had some good drink specials one night a week. I loved the bar because it was small and posh.If I remember correctly, the staff wore a tuxedo type tie, white shirt, and pants. The clientel was Flo and Eddie'ish as opposed to Cheers and Rick's types.

It seems they gave up the college bar scene afterit got popular and students started burning their expensive carpet and antique furniture with cigs and such.

Also, the outside bar at the Blue Marlin was a cool hangout (for the one summer or so they were open), plus they had some sort of hand grenade type drink that you only needed one.
