Went to NU from 76-80. There was actually a bar on campus in the Ell Center near the cafeteria. As a matter of fact, the student union actually sponsored a screening of the XXX "Deep Throat" in one of the auditoriums to raise money for student activities. Sold out the show too!Nope, I missed out on the drinking age reduction as well as the voting age reduction. NU Class of '70
Cruel to the cripple are we?
In reality NU prohibited everything back then. No visiting men in the women's dorms beyond the lobby, women dorms had curfews, no booze on campus, etc.
Thanks for the facts.
I had someone try to pull that crap on me in MA. I was with my approximately 10 year old niece. I bought the alcohol.Not only do they card everyone, but if you have someone underaged WITH YOU they won't sell you alcohol. I went to buy liquor and my son came in with me. When, as a teen he couldn't produce an ID, I wasn't able to buy alcohol for ME
When I was in Cambridge in the early 60s, it was rumored that Martignetti's in the North End would sell to anyone who could reach the counter.Had the owner of Martignettis in Chelsea threaten to hit me with a bottle of wine because we were hanging out front trying to get someone to buy for us. He was like 5 foot nothing, well dressed and there were like 6-8 of us so we just laughed it off and he went inside threatening to call the cops.
Possibly. This was in the late 80's. Could of been a manager rather than the owner. Now that I think of it Im not sure how a bunch of kids would have any idea who the owner of M's was. He was pissed though, lol.When I was in Cambridge in the early 60s, it was rumored that Martignetti's in the North End would sell to anyone who could reach the counter.
I have no personal knowledge of this, of course.
LolI was in my small town Maine. Kid was trying to buy beer without a license/underage. Kept pleading with the guy to sell it. I was off duty in plain clothes. Finally, I said, "Look kid, he's not going to sell you alcohol with a cop standing right behind you."
When my son was in college 5-7 years ago, his friends found a chinese web site that would create damn good MA licenses with your choice of birth dates for $100. They worked like a charm until 3-4 months later the kids that ordered them were all victims of identity theft and had a bunch of credit cards opened in their names.I’m an electrician, two of our apprentices are under 21. They have really good fakes, they get them shipped from China. they’re nice kids, but I ain’t risking my ass to buy them booze. Luckily they have no problem buying it for themselves.
LOL, woops.What is the penalty for know

At first I was thinking Len was YOUNGER than I thought. Turns out, he's handsomely older than I thought. LOLWasn't the drinking age 18 then?
That was funny. Been years since I've seen that. As good is the package store scene from Dazed & Confused. "Now eat a green thing every day." (Clerk to the pregnant young girl smoking. LOL)Kinda long, but here's the gold standard video clip for this kind of thing:
Sampan in downtown Framingham would serve to under 21. If you ordered "cold tea" you got beer in one of those Chinese teapots.Used to be a bar call EJ's in Rowley on the old rte 1 back in the 70's. Bar was owned by Eddie johnston of the Bruins. We were in high school and drank there. Never got carded.
I think every kid in the 70's knew of a bar or package store where they could go for booze.....
