Bar Review Review

Within law school culture, "Bar Review", in which students explore the local bar scene on Thursday nights (not study for the bar exam), is an important means of socializing, bonding, networking, blowing off steam and dating (?).

At Boalt who plans bar review is a closely guarded secret. Each Weds morning (or Thursday morning when the Bar Review fairy is lazy) flyers simply appear on the bulletin boards (how is everyone too lazy to spot this person?). One can only guess why this individual needs to remain in the shadows but perhaps it makes sense to insulate these folks from political pressures (like a Judge...or Batman). Speculation abounds and popular candidates include: BHSA through a secret committee, C*thy Kw*n, K*m N*tividad, Professor B*rring, Fomer FBI Director Mark Felt (look it up kids), the Gun Club or the beautiful people who plan Bacchus and the wine buses (but then it would be better wouldn't it?). Recently eyes have turned towards the ownership of Thalassa (that would explain why its been there twice in the first four weeks even though there is nowhere to dance).

Regardless of who plans it, controversy has grown in recent weeks as alternative bar reviews have begun to proliferate. Last week a flyer appeared next to the flyer declaring Bar Review at Thalassa suggesting Barclay's instead. "Tired of bars you've already reviewed? Try Barclay's!", read the strongly worded dissent. An additional dissent from La Raza appeared suggesting an alternative bar review bar crawl in Downtown Oakland. 

So what gives? Is Boalt Hall failing to appreciate it's Dark Knight who we need in spite of ourselves? Or should someone else just plan Bar Review since Ch*se is in London for the semester?

Your comments are welcomed.

Stay Berkeley, my friends.
