Best Place to Watch Hippies Dance - 2005
The Across the Street Bar Psychedelic Drum Jam
Granted, we've only observed this Wednesday night spectacle from the safe confines of the Barley House patio, but it sure looks like fun if you're into that sort of thing. Based on the data we've accumulated, it seems the drummers gather in a circle, allowing the hippies to congregate in the middle and perform their traditional loose-limbed mating dance--a combination of body spins and raised hand twirls that looks really stupid but apparently gets them laid. If a number of hippie males are vying for one female, the competition gets intense, so much so that one dude might even up the ante by pulling out his devil sticks and performing the most mystical of all juggling routines. Every third Wednesday is the Rainbow Potluck, where the hippies bring offerings of munchies to the drum gods. So bring your djembes and your congas if you got 'em, but don't forget that old anthropology textbook. You're gonna need it.
