With lectures due to begin next week, the youngsters are making the most of their newfound freedom before bending over and getting into the books.

Plenty of fancy dress was on display, while others were getting ready for their night on the town, heading for the big weekend blowout before the start of term.

The costumes included 80s workout video style leotards, bean cans, Shrek and a freeway sign.

Some were more dressed up than others, however, as a few brave Nottingham souls gritted their teeth against the September chill and ventured into parakeet smugglers.

It comes as thousands of students across the country head back to universities after a long, hot summer.

Excited youngsters invaded pubs and clubs for a night of boozy fun.

Huge queues formed outside student hotspots as eager teenagers waited to enter.

Freshers’ Week usually marks the start of the year, welcoming newbies to campus.

Events are organized officially by student unions, while local nightspots often run promotions to attract student customers.

The crowd is usually made up of first years celebrating being away from home and having more freedom, often for the first time.

Some brave souls have only faced the cold with budgie smugglers

New England game days – ahhh – the best.

Imagine a Patriots game Sunday at 1 p.m. If you’re not going to the game, you might end up in a sports bar at 11 a.m.

Why so early? Because it’s GAME DAY.

The atmosphere in most sports bars is unmatched during a game. I use Mojo’s in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Winners Circle in Salisbury, Massachusetts as examples.

If you go to any of these places between 11am and 12pm, before a 1pm game, the bars start to get energized. And it’s building. And built. And BUILD.

People are having a late breakfast/early lunch. People start drinking a few beers to prepare for the game. People meet new friends, play keno, place bets – all for that 1 p.m. kick-off.

The second the game starts, everyone in the establishment is your friend. Everyone is there to see the same thing – a New England or Boston sports team victory.

Huge game? High fives all around. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re sitting, everyone gets a high five.

Touchdown/goal? Beers. Beers. Beers. Drink, celebrate, make some noise and get another one!

Some people say, and it’s certainly me sometimes, that the best place to watch a game/spend a game day is at home. And it’s certainly true sometimes. I really like to drink my own beer, in my own seat, without anyone around me talking and disturbing me.

That said, being around other fans on a game day is more fun.

You clap, they clap. You drink, they drink. You get angry, they get angry. It’s just a group of people with similar interests (earning from home) gathered in one place.

Strangers become friends and friends become family in these kinds of sports bars.

These are 25 of the best sports bars in New Hampshire and Massachusetts

Below are the best sports bars and restaurants to watch a game in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

WATCH: 50 images of winning moments in sports history

Sometimes pictures are the best way to honor the characters we’ve lost. When tragedy quickly reminds us that sport is far from the most important thing in life, we can always recall the moment of victory of an athlete who seemed larger than life, remaining grateful for his sacrifice on the ground and bringing joy to millions of people.

Read on to explore the full collection of 50 images compiled by Stacker featuring various iconic moments of victory in sports history. Covering the achievements of a multitude of sports, these images depict stunning personal achievements, team championships and sporting perseverance.

The Gibson

the escapologist

Housed in the bustling headquarters of the secret society that ruled Victorian London, The Escapologist is a bar to escape to after a long day. Designed as a “Modern Victorian Men’s Club” and “Masonic Lodge”, the focus is on memorable moments with great drinks in an outrageous space. Think dark red velvet curtains, plush seating, jazzy Victorian portraits, opulent floor tiles, and slightly garish wallpaper.

Named for Baron Von Took, a legendary reveler and general wanderer (who avoided a tryst with the gallows and spent the rest of his days in hiding – gallivanting across the world at will), The Escapologist is the perfect place for a fun night out. With secret doors, surprises around every corner, and twisted drinks in the subterranean basement, it’s always the perfect place to escape the kingdom and unlock a new level of revelry.

The Escapologist’s drink menu is comprehensive, with specialty cocktails – like the delicious Sugar Daddy, made with Chivas Regal Scotch, Disaranno Amaretto, cola, fruit and citrus juices – wine, bubbles, beers, shooters and ‘tiki ‘ (all made with Havana Club Rum), gin, classic, vodka, seasonal AND non-alcoholic cocktails.

The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town

A secret bar through a fridge? What will they think next! Yet this subterranean bolthole is indeed only accessible by walking through a refrigerator in the city’s branch of trendy coffee shop, The Breakfast Club.

What may seem like “just” a place to grab some tasty food, opens up to much more behind a secret door – as long as you guess the password correctly… If you do, a dark room awaits you bare-brick with lots of atmosphere, great cocktails, delicious bar snacks and, as the neon sign proclaims, all-night thrills.

We recommend trying the delicious Mayor’s Tea Party cocktail – it’s made with Earl Gray infused Tanqueray gin, Rin Quin Peach vermouth, homemade lavender syrup, lemon bitters and grapefruit. Trust us – it’s unlike any other cocktail you’ve had.

Moonshine Lounge

Put on your cowboy boots and hold on to your hat – the Moonshine Saloon is a real ride! A cocktail bar like no other, and probably the quirkiest on our list, Moonshine Saloon combines immersive theater with a top-notch drinking experience. Step inside to be transported from the city streets and into the Wild West to get your slice of the illegal Moonlight Empire.

Moonshine Saloon lets you be part of the story as it unfolds – “smuggle in” your own booze and become the center of a “covert booze operation” run by the so-called King of the Moonshiners, Clyde Cassidy. Mingle with the “locals”, try your luck at card and dice games, and when the sheriff calls you, do your best to stay cool.

You’ll also look the part, with the bar’s ‘local tailor’ dressing you to look like the rest of the residents, all so you don’t attract the attention of the law!

Throughout the experience, you and your companions will be served delicious bespoke cocktails made from your ‘illegally smuggled’ liquor, expertly brewed by a team of world-class mixologists. Expect to see your liquor blended in innovative ways – with liqueurs, homemade syrups, juices, bitters and toppings.

Catch your partners in crime, get your moonshine ready, and strap yourself in for a crazy, drink-fueled journey.

The Gibson

The Gibson

Did you know that there is a way for you to travel through space and time in Old Street, a stone’s throw from the City? We don’t lie! With the help of the classic pickled cocktail – the Gibson, and an eclectic supporting team of over 40 imaginative cocktails, the Gibson’s menu is designed around a fantastic calendar that takes you through different seasons in different eras.

Since the bar is the time machine and through your drink selection, you are in control of your destination. Embarking from Edwardian London, where will you go? Your first stop could be a warm summer evening in the 1920s or a winter night in a time yet to come!

The Gibson’s stunning interiors are well aligned with the theme, designed to emanate a futuristic Edwardian world so you feel like you’ve stepped through a portal. The room is filled with dark furniture and orange lighting, with just a hint of extravagance.

The Gibson is sure to serve up a quirky evening from start to finish, so be sure to pay it a visit.

The Brick

Looking for a more intimate drinking experience? You’ll love The Brig – hidden away and personal, London’s smallest bar has been carved out of the Merchant House bar of Bow Lane. It’s the perfect place for an after-work drink, a date or a private party!

The Brig can be booked by the hour for two to four people, priced at £65 pp, with all drinks and your own private bartender included – all of whom are expertly trained in both cocktail making and to the art of conversation. Expect plenty of spice, humor and charm.

Put on your own music, explore the spirits and cocktails you like, chat with your bartender (who can make you drinks customized to your preferences), chat with each other, and even make your own drinks, if you like.

On the day of your booking, you’ll receive a unique four-digit code to access The Brig during your timeslot, and then the fun can begin!

SEVERAL restaurants, cafes and pubs in Blaenau Gwent have been recognized for their exceptional levels of food hygiene and safety.

If you are looking for a place to eat in Blaenau Gwent, you are spoiled for choice. One way to choose between them is to look at the food hygiene ratings.

Every business that serves food is required by law to be inspected. After inspection by the local authority, they are then graded from five – meaning the standards are excellent – ​​to zero – meaning urgent improvement is needed.

Inspectors rate companies on the following three elements:

  • How food is handled hygienically: How it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored;
  • The cleanliness and condition of the buildings: Cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities;
  • Food safety management: How the company manages what it does to ensure food is safe to eat and whether the agent can be confident that standards will be maintained in the future.

These ratings are listed on the Food Standards Agency website.

If businesses get three five consecutive hygiene scores, they qualify for a Scores On The Doors elite award and can be considered best in class for food safety.

A total of 39 locals in Blaenau Gwent have qualified for an Elite Award from scoresonthedoors.org.uk, as of 15 September 2022 – although this includes schools, shops and rugby and social clubs.

Here are the places where you can dine.

Keno – a game of choosing a set of 10 numbers, usually ranging from 1 to 80, with the goal of them matching randomly drawn numbers to win – is a lottery game that is already offered in many states Across the country.

One of the main differences between keno and other WyoLotto games, however, will be the availability of where and how games can be played, according to a state lottery press release this week. In addition to typical gambling venues like gas stations and convenience stores, keno games will be permitted to be played in bars, restaurants, social clubs and other similar businesses in Wyoming.

The state release says retailers that provide keno games will receive a 6% commission on sales and an additional 1% on any winnings they redeem, creating an additional revenue stream through the lottery for players. state enterprises.

“It’s a very big moment for us and for Wyoming, and we’re ready!” Jon Clontz, CEO of WyoLotto, was quoted in the statement. “KENO is unlike any other game in our current portfolio. It gives players a social and fast-paced way to play, which means a fun new activity they can enjoy at their favorite bar, tavern, or other local business.

Keno tickets will be sold in the state from 5 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day with the frequency of the draws, which means that over 300 separate games will take place per day. WyoLotto provided a more in-depth explanation of the game format, payouts and other information in a marketing video on its website.

Greg Dulli can clearly compare the economics of owning a bar to the economics of being a rock musician.

“If you’re into the Rolling Stones, that’s a pittance,” he says, gesturing to his surroundings as he sits in a black leather booth at Atwater Village’s Club Tee Gee – one of three places he owns in Los Angeles. – a recent afternoon. “If you’re one of the Afghan Whigs,” he adds with a smile, “you’re excited.”

Dulli, 57, has been a member of the Afghan Whigs — in fact since 1986, when he formed the shadowy grunge soul group in Cincinnati, not far from his hometown of Hamilton, Ohio. Built around Dulli’s tortured moan, the band found alt-rock success in the post-Nirvana ’90s with albums like “Gentlemen,” on which the frontman dissected a toxic relationship in brutally unforgiving detail; MTV’s adoption of the LP’s single, “Debonair”, even led to Dulli being cast as the voice of John Lennon (alongside Dave Pirner’s Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl’s Ringo Starr) in the biopic “Backbeat”. of the Beatles debut in 1994.

Decades later, after a breakup and reunion and a number of personnel changes, the Whigs are still around. On Friday, the band will release their ninth studio album, “How Do You Burn?”, and play the first date of a US tour that will keep Dulli and his friends on the road until mid-October.

“We just did three weeks in Europe, and the show in Prague – I mean, that’s why I always do it,” says the singer, who beyond the Afghan Whigs has done solo records and performed with the Twilight Singers and as half of the Gutter Twins with Mark Lanegan. “Absolute emotional ecstasy.”

As much as music means to Dulli, he spends much of his time these days minding his business: Club Tee Gee, the dive-y Footsie’s in Cypress Park and the Short Stop near Dodger Stadium, as well than two other bars he co-owns in New Orleans, where Dulli lives when not in Los Angeles. The Short Stop was his first investment; he paid $15,000 for his initial stake in 2000 as the original incarnation of the Whigs began to crumble.

Still, Tee Gee, who he’s had for about four years, is his favorite, he says. (For one, it’s the closest to his house.) Dressed in a golf shirt and basketball shorts, his once inky hair turned snow white, Dulli eagerly points out some decor elements he changed when he bought the bar from the family of one of the men who opened it in 1946. His business partners at Tee Gee are “an ex-marketing manager with a specialization in finance, a lawyer and a CPA,” he says. Laughing, he adds, “All the s—I’m not.”

Dulli, who acts like a minor character in a Martin Scorsese film, knew about bars long before he started playing them with the Afghan Whigs. Growing up, he had two uncles who owned joints in Hamilton where he hung out and played shuffleboard. “It was a familiar setting,” he says now. “And I understood that my two uncles were doing well.”

Indeed, despite his various indulgences as a young rock star – and with crucial advice from a business leader “who was like, ‘Capital gains – follow my lead'” – Dulli was smart with the money he he started winning when the Whigs took off. “It was real estate immediately,” he says. “I bought my first house at 27, then another at 29.”

When asked if LA or New Orleans is the biggest drinking city, Dulli said New Orleans is “a more consistent drinking city”, not least because bars can operate there 24 hours a day. 24. “But I’ve learned that nothing good ever happens at 5 a.m., unless it’s Mardi Gras,” he says. “I’m not staying open for five sketchy mothers – just tweaking and trying to get their heart rate down.”

Dulli’s new music still exudes a dreary atmosphere in the wee hours of the morning: ‘The Getaway’ is told by someone ‘waiting for the night while I destroy the day’, while the ‘A Line of Shots’ singer meditates “a simple lie to invoke your sympathy. Throughout “How Do You Burn?” – on which Dulli’s collaborators include founding Whigs bassist John Curley as well as members of The Raconteurs and Blind Melon – the band combines the genre sharp guitars and throbbing R&B grooves that Dulli had loved since he was a kid obsessed with Led Zeppelin and Motown, Aerosmith and Ohio gamers.

Quitting after touring behind 1998’s ‘1965’ album – Dulli was ‘sort of done with the music’ and briefly manned the bar at the Short Stop before turning to the Twilight Singers and the Gutters Twins – the Afghan Whigs came together in 2012, first with founding guitarist Rick McCollum on board. But McCollum didn’t last long: “I think he was just settling into what his life was like,” Dulli says. “He was like an alien to me.” The band released two albums, 2014’s ‘Do to the Beast’ and 2017’s ‘In Spades’, with guitarist Dave Rosser, who died of colon cancer shortly after the latter’s release.

Dulli conducted remote recording sessions for “How Do You Burn?” as his bandmates were scattered across the country during the COVID pandemic. “That first song represents four people in three states,” he says of the LP’s opener, “I’ll Make You See God.” But it doesn’t sound put together at all; Dulli, a noted control freak, believes that other players actually felt more invested in the music because they were creating their games under his watchful eye.

“You can’t be Paul McCartney all the time,” he says with a shrug.

His vocals — snarling, pectoral, slightly haunting — are particularly strong, which he attributes in part to his work with Lanegan, the gravelly-voiced former Screaming Trees frontman who had perfect pitch, according to Dulli. “He’s been ravaged but still in the key,” he says of Lanegan’s signature croak. In her own voice, Dulli says, “In all modesty, I think I sound a lot better now than I used to.” The worst singing he has ever done, in his opinion, is on the album widely regarded as his best.

“I did almost all the singing on ‘Gentleman’ in about three days, and I was moving at the time,” he says. “Stay up all night, do things that are not good for your throat. We take his point, but could it also be the case that – on an album about desperate people in dire straits – it’s precisely this tattered quality that makes the performance?

“If you like Method singing,” he says, “I guess that’s a masterclass.”

Dulli, who is never married and has no children, is candid about his history of substance abuse. “When I was young, I read Creem magazine, especially whenever they talked to Keith Richards,” he says. “I loved Keith Richards. And I was like, I can’t wait to do drugs. Drugs sound like fun. I’m gonna do them all. And I did.” By the end of the 1990s, he had entered a “self-destruction phase”, as he puts it; he had become “nasty and unstable”, to the point that “even my strongest supporters would tell me, ‘You suck.’ So I got out of that phase, and I never went back.

Did his ability to do so surprise him?

“I have an iron will,” he says. “When I make up my mind, it’s done.” These days, he drinks tequila, mezcal and gin; he liked bourbon, although he had lost his taste for “brown downers”.

Dulli says losing Lanegan and Rosser — along with his friend Shawn Smith, who played with the Twilight Singers, and his former booking agent, Steve Strange — made him reflect on his own mortality. “I am entering the autumn of my days,” he says. Of Lanegan’s death in February, the cause of which has not been publicly disclosed, Dulli says he knows nothing beyond the fact that Lanegan’s health was severely damaged by a bout with COVID last year. .

Prior to that, Dulli says, Lanegan had been “bathed in some conspiracy theories” regarding the pandemic — “classic tinfoil hat stuff about vaccines and Bill Gates. I was like, ‘Man, come on.’ But I think he got past that. Dulli spoke with Lanegan on the phone a week before his death, he said, “and he seemed fine to me then.”

The spread of COVID misinformation is just one aspect of a political climate that Dulli jokes has him wondering “when Ashton Kutcher is going to come out and tell us we’ve all been punks.” This summer, the singer returned to Ohio to visit his mother. “I’m driving through my old town and I see all these flags with the name of someone who is no longer president,” he says. “Why are you flying on this flag? It is a cult flag. Is it Jonestown?

He shakes his head as he continues, “You know, when I was young, you could get in on someone who didn’t agree with you and then eat ice cream afterwards.” Now, my mother, I want to kill you.

When asked if he supported Karen Bass or Rick Caruso in the race for mayor of Los Angeles, Dulli replied, “I’m just a socialist, so I’ll just put that there and you can probably answer. your own question.”

Is there a tension between being a socialist and owning a small business?

“A little,” he said, laughing. “My partners sometimes hinder my socialism. They’re like, ‘Now, Greg…’”
