B"Mugs Away Pub," located on
Franklin Street, and "Sidetrack
Taverns." on Main Street in Carr
boro. are both laid-back, low-key
places to eat, drink and play pool
and darts with friends. And, accord
ing to sophomore Jennifer Hill, they
are the current hotspots.
The "Hardback Cafe" is an easy
haven for yuppies and English
majors. Half bookstore, half restau
rant, the Hardback features sand-
whiches named after famous literary
figures, cappuchino coffee and liter
ary drinks. Yes, you can just get a
beer there. Ask the bar for the
"Hardback Toy Box," a shoebox full
of toys customers can play with while
they talk or wait. The owners also
bring in live music sometimes. Dexter
Romweber, formerly of the Flat Duo

man, Zandy Hartig, simply describes
the place as "nice."

Papagayo's is a place students tome

a new late night menu. j
The Flying Burrito is another
Mexican restaurant people seem to
be talking about. Freshman Laura

their beer in mason jars." It is located
at the junction of Airport Road and

to night. There is no admission
charge; instead, "donations" are
accepted. No smoking or alcohol is
allowed. On some nights, topics are
circulated and discussed. On other
nights, the club has live music that
ranges in type from hardcore to
bluegrass. They also have Open
Night, where any musicians are
welcome to come and play. The Tin
Drum Theatre, an experimental
troupe of performers, has held
performances there as well. "It's
really what you'd call an anything

is a tiny room with a veritable
mountain of clothing in it, like jewels
in a pirate's treasure chest.
BLast but not least is the Barrel
of Fun. "It's neither a barret nor
fun," said one cynical junior. Sure
you've passed it; you probably
hurried past it too. But it's an
undeniable fact that nerdy things like
pinball parlours are sometimes fun
to go to.
