It's midnight in Chapel Hill.
While some college students are
hitting the books or the bars, others are
just beginning a night of serving appe
tizers, mixing drinks and slicing pizza
in local establishments.
Late-night workers may get less sleep
than their peers, but many students say
the late shift offers an attractive combi
nation of socializing and cash.
"It's all about seeing friends and
making money," said Angela Tanner, a
junior from Allentown, Pa., and a wait
ress at Spanky's.
"I can draw close to $80 on a busy
weekend dinner shift," said Julie Mills,
a junior from Shelby who waits tables
during the late-night shifts at Colonel
Chutney's. "The money is great, and
you almost feel like you're out, even
though you are working."

Arcade challenges UNC pinball wizards
By LAURA WILLIAMS
Even after the untimely death of Mr.
and Mrs. Pac-Man, college students are
still saving their quarters for video
games and pinball, and the Barrel Of
Fun arcade on Franklin Street remains
1 one of the favorite local hangouts for
aspiring video wizards.
Most of the college students who
spend their time (and quarters) at Bar
rel Of Fun say they play the games
because they enjoy the challenge of
' trying to top their previous scores.
Not only is playing video games
cheaper than going to the movies, but
it's a good way to relax, according to
Nick Kontogeorgopoulos, a sophomore
from Toronto, Canada. "Video releases
stress and tension and gets my mind off
what I usually have to do."
Video games are much better than
pinball, Kontogeorgopoulos said. "With
pin-ball there is not enough color, ac
tion or violence, and all of the games
Video games have improved since
he first started playing them 10 years
ago, Kontogeorgopoulos said. "I used
to be good at Ms. Pac-Man, but now it's
dead and boring." His favorite game
now is "ASSAULT," a war game in
which the object is to destroy oncom
But Steve Oglesbee, a sophomore
from Chapel Hill, prefers the romance
of old pinball games to the newer tech
nology of today's video games. "Video
is the same pattern, but with pinball
there is more skill involved. Also, you
can win free games." His favorite game
is "Cyclone," a game with a carnival
that a big advantage of having a late
night job was the opportunity to see
friends while working.
"You know that if you screw up, like
with an order, your friends will be cool
about it and understand," she said.
Jay Horton, a junior from William
ston and a bouncer at Four Corner's,
noted one difference between the night
lives of workers and customers. "You're
out and on the scene, only you aren't
But people who work until the wee
hours of the morning have a common
trait that creates natural fellowship.
"All the people you hang out With
work with you because you all have the
same hours. Sometimes you'll all get
off at 4 a.m. and be wired and just hang
out," said Chip Clausen. Clausen gradu
ated from UNC last May but worked at
Bub's as a bartender while he was a
student. He has kept the job while look
ing for other employment.

J. Stultz, a freshman from Eden and
an avid pinball player, said pinball had
evolved into a more challenging game
to compete with the fast pace and graph
ics of video. "For a while, companies
stopped making the (pinball) machines.
Now they are making much better
Both pinball and video games have
been updated to meet the standards of
the computer generation, said James
Huggiris, manager of Barrel Of Fun.
The video industry slumped after
the video craze of Pac-Man, he said.
Now, with new technology, companies
are creating games that are much more
complicated and challenging, and the
video industry is picking up again.
The generation of video players have
advanced from Space Invaders, one of
the first video games, to games like
Hard Driving, which is so realistic it is
used to teach new drivers, Huggins
The video industry now is using its
new popularity to send a message to
players about the dangers of drugs. One
game, called NARC, has the slogan
"Say No To Drugs" painted on the side.
The game depicts a simulated street
fight in which a "narc," or narcotics
agent, kills drug pushers. Blood flies
when the pushers and dealers are shot.
"Younger kids may relate (to the
slogan), although the game may be too
violent," Stultz said.
NARC is one of Stultz's favorite
games at Barrel Of Fun. He likes the
game for its graphics, he said.
But whatever the appeal, the college
pinball wizards keep coming back,
Huggins said. "They enjoy the chal
lenge. They keep trying to do better."

letic events and not getting to go out
with friends, according to Clausen.
"Sometimes your friends were on
the other side of the bar, and you just
wanted to jump over and join them," he
Late-night jobs can be fun, but work
ers have to deal with the midnight cli
entele, too, which often includes the
more rambunctious customers.
"I like making pizzas," said Roddy
Mann, a junior from Laurinburg who
works at Pepper's Pizza. "The work is
not too difficult, but it is rewarding
except the times when drunk college
students come in and are obnoxious.
They act like they are God, but remem
ber, they aren't and I am."
Students who work the late shift often
have busy lives and heavy course loads.
But Tanner said her employer tried to
arrange flexible schedules and made
allowances for exams and things that
demanded attention in a student's life.

Tanner isn't the only night worker
who sometimes finds the shift less
lucrative than she would like.
Hilary Miller, a junior from Cleve

Chutney's, said that some nights were
less exciting than others. "Chutney's is
known for its patio, and when it rains
less people come out, which means less
to do and less tips."
But the night shift is definitely for
night owls. Miller said that she could
