I understand that this may not specifically apply to you or your friends, but what seems to be the vast majority of college students in bars consist of either
a) sweaty dudes doused in Axe body spray wearing backwards hats who inexplicably feel the need to randomly yell out things like "yeah, dude!" and give each other high fives for no reason while slamming drinks and making crude comments about every female in the place
b) chicks in Andre the Giant shirts (those stupid one-shoulder ones) with muffin tops and plumber's crack who inexplicably feel the need to yell "woo!" at random times while slamming drinks and rubbing up against every sweaty college dude in the place (see example a)
In a nutshell, college students (again, I realize this is a broad generalization, but let's face it, I'm not wrong here) are obnoxious, loud, extremely drunk, and listen to crappy music. Those of us who are older prefer to avoid them and go to places where we can hang out with our friends, have a few drinks (and not get those drinks spilled all over us by drunken frat boys), and maybe listen to some good music.
So if you and your friends don't fit into categories a or b, feel free to try new bars and do your part to dispel the stereotypes. If you do fit into those categories, please stick to State Street and leave the rest of us in peace.
