One Night in Morgantown

As any student or alumnus will tell you, the real craziness happens on game days, but the local watering holes are open year-round. We went on a Thursday, which is as good a night as any to drop in on the WVU party scene. ( has a full list of choices, but here are some highlights:

* Bent Willey's (471 Chestnut St.). Several different bars, indoor and on the deck. Nightly drink specials.

* Chic-n-Bones Rhythm Cafe (444 Chestnut St.). Laid-back spot with big tables and decent bar food.

* De Lazy Lizard (345 High St.). Massive space packed with people, multiple bars and a live band.

* Gibbie's Pub & Eatery (368 High St.). Casual spot for students and locals. Big booths; beers served by the bucket.
