Business decision. Bars need to attract women, so they provide them drink specials and don't turn away ladies at the door, as well as making sure the guys put some level of effort into their appearance. Moe's goes for a "casual" atmosphere, just like you wrote. Other bars have a "club" style dress code. "if a woman is wearing a plain white T-shirt and shorts below the knee, will she be asked to leave?" Probably? I've never seen an Auburn girl downtown dressed like that though. Makes me think that bars see no reason to post a rule like that for women. Sorry if you feel like a victim here, I personally don't.

I saw a joker changing his oil in the CDV Ext parking lot and he just let the oil pour down on the ground. I hate to say it, but that action really helped class up the area a bit, which ought tell you a bit about the place. It was so nasty in the 90s they encouraged people to wipe their feet before they stepped outside you they wouldn't track any of the dorms on the grass.

I lived in CDV back in 1981 and it was a good experience for me. The buildings were obviously not up to current AU building standards, but for their time, they served their purpose. Perhaps they could get remodeled and used as on-campus lodging for parents and other individuals in need of such close proximity to university events.

The Cecil has always said, you can't create nostalgia. We can't WANT to be music town and therefore become one. You must first become one naturally then be happy you are. Also, Confucius says, man with hands in pockets feels cocky all day!

The argument that Auburn isn't a good music town isn't new. And I know that many owner/operators of local venues feel the exact same way... only they are talking about the music FANS in Auburn. Grammy winners, Music Hall of Fame inductees, and performers who have released dozens of successful CDs often play in Auburn, many within walking distance of downtown. Yet drawing people to these concerts, especially students, has proved to be difficult at best, impossible at worst. It's not really a chicken-or-egg scenario: if people want Auburn to be a destination spot for musicians, then they MUST support those musicians who are already willing to give the area a chance.

Congress wants the Redskins to change its name because it's offensive, yet we routinely use the word scalping as though it's not! Webster (not the tiny, adorable TV Webster, I mean Dictionary Webster), watch out for Congress!

Those who don't learn from the future are doomed to repeat it.

It is also the one time in your life you can live in a trailer without the stigma of living in a trailer.....just make sure you live in one with mostly student populations......the others can get quite scary when the sun goes down and then when it comes back up.
