On Thursday I posted a picture of Mike's Beer Barn which is located right across Tennessee Street from the Florida State University campus. Tennessee Street (or US Highway 90) is the main east/west road through Tallahassee. The area of that runs parallel to the FSU campus is also sometimes been called the Tennessee Street "strip" and it is lined with establishments catering to college students. Another one of these places is Poor Paul's Pourhouse. Poor Paul's has been located here for many years, in fact it was there when I was in college many moons ago. It has been a local right of passage for young people to do what is called the "Tennessee Waltz", hitting all the bars along the strip for drinks on their 21st birthday. If you look closely, you will see a couple of birds up there on that sign enjoying the view.
