"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" New Haven Nightlife

    ["BAR" in New Haven, Connecticut]

    This weekend I had quite an adventure.  Not only was it the Princeton/Yale game in New Haven (which we found out the hard way when trying to find a hotel room that night), it was a friend's "Flight of the Conchords" themed house party.  It's not easy to get me off the couch on a rainy friday night, but my love of theme parties prevailed and I found myself helping make foiled boxes on the drive.  We were more than prepared for the party, what we weren't prepared for: the New Haven nightlife.  We were taken to "BAR" a huge complex that was half pizza restaurant/half bar/half club.  The club scene was pretty hysterical.

    More story and photos below:

    The bars and clubs all close at 1:00 but, let me assure you from first hand experience, the streets weren't ready to shut down until 3.  I think I have had a misperception of New Haven. I need to do some more research but am I missing something that all of my Yalie friends got?

    Alas we had a great time.  It's always nice to visit club land outside of NYC and compare.  Also, we met this guy below (the one with the comb in his hair) who made our night.
