^^^ small world. Binghamton grad as well. Don't remember the pine lounge but plenty of nights at Sports Bar and The Rat which I'm sure are all equally as bad.
Most people who drank at the Pine Lounge don't remember drinking at the Pine Lounge. It is the distillation of everything Binghamton. Or was - no idea if it still exists. May have burned down, exploded, been condemned, or destroyed by the wrath of an angry God. I miss it...
Edit - From Yelp: "The Pine is reopened and now called Abel's Pub, but it's still a dump."
^^ haha interesting. When I was there state street was a mad house. Couldn't even get in to most bars. Was there last year and things have certainly changed. Must have to do with the increase in average SAT scores.
Back to shoes:
They might just be shoes but damn if GG doesn't make some of the finest footwear around. Thoroughly impressed with this pair. Can see these becoming top 5 pairs for me.
