Walking across an almost-deserted College Green, my 13-year-old son mentioned how sad it must be for college students, especially the seniors, including his sister.



I haven't been down since March, partly because of this factor. It would have to be really odd to be there right now.


Odd is not even the word. I have never seen Ohio University or Athens like this in my 34 years here. It is just so strange and hard to discribe.


Can a person go inside and eat anywhere there?


Yes, this place is NOT sibera! Most all restaurants have dine in seating going on. New one getting ready to open on Court Street in old Cornwell building, many Frats out roaming the town in their cute suits last night. It's not normal, but it's hardly a ghost town.


So if I wanted to venture to Athens for a day trip, I could hit The Pub for a beer, and Jackie O's for a beer? I might have to make the trip after all. I occasionally need out of the Central Ohio region once football starts.

EDIT -- most important, thanks for the heads up!


Yes, tap room closed, but next door is open, with food and all your favorite flavors. as well as every other uptown bar.


Tap room is open. Had a beer there after golf on Wednesday.
