Was she drunk? – I called once for directions and some chick put me on hold for a good ten minutes while she talked to her girlfriends about what tatoo she was thinking about getting.. if you still want directions to the place, i'd recommend google maps .. or driving down high street till you find it / get lost and go somewhere else.
The cheap place for intellectuals who dress like mechanics, musicians/artists and college students to imbibe and chat. – History Lesson
Plenty of urban lore surrounds this bar, which opened its doors when Prohibition ended. It's been said that in early years, student intellectuals wanted a place to themselves. To do so, they spread a rumor around campus that Larry's was a gay bar, which kept the general public away so brainiacs could sip suds and discuss Rousseau in peace.
It's still fashionable to bring your philosophy books and natter over the meaning of life, and the suds are generally inexpensive enough to accommodate starving artists.
Larry's tends to attract grad students, grownup, perpetual students and OSU faculty. Are you a black sheep? You'll belong.
Larry's has also hosted poetry readings longer than anyplace else; they're held on Mondays during every season except the summer.
