But it's the place to be and to be seen in Oxford on game day.
Some of the best live music in the Mississippi Delta (ok, technically, Oxford's not the Delta, but still) can be found there.
Most waiters at the Rendezvous have been there longer than you've been alive and have waited on the famous and the unknown. When you've been filled with the delicious 'cue, head over a couple of blocks to Beale Street, the place where blues began.
From every doorway, great live music spills out into the night air like thick clouds of smoke, filling you with history and nostalgia.
On the downside, you'll have to get there early on game day because it fills up rather rapidly. Big Al's sums up its purpose by boasting, "We are not a fast food restaurant, so please relax and enjoy your cocktails and company."Good advice. If you're at an Ole Miss game, you should've dressed for the occasion and brought your credit card.
The food ain't great—with the exception of the burgers. Drinks at the Library aren't for the average budget.
Try a whole rack of lipsmacking and finger- licking ribs.
Don't forget to eat in the basement rather than upstairs, 'cause the basement is a whole world unto itself.
Many people will try to tell you that Cheerleaders or Muggsy's in Boise is the place to go, but we like Player's Pub & Grill, and we'll tell you why. Sure, it's got the TVs and the games, but the food is great and there's the thing it's attached to. Sometimes your team's success mandates that you shake it a bit, and we feel more comfortable doing that on a dance floor than in the streets.
Its sister location is the grill and restaurant just down the street.
But if you want to really experience what football in Oxford is all about, this place is the Old South at its best and its snobby worst. Plus, it's a place you could take the kids if you wanted to (that goes for Boise as well). State College's Arena Sports Bar calls itself "the adult playground of State College," and we'd agree.
It plays, or at least fields a team, in the Big Ten.
Some of the bars within walking distance of the IU campus include Kilroy's, on Kirkwood, and Yogi's on 10th.
But when your team plays in Memphis, know that the stadium is nowhere near the campus and that the near-campus dives are really just that—dives.
