While I rarely went to Ricks, because as a graduate student these things are not done, every time I was in the bathroom someone was vomitting.
The first time I went there I was new in town with 2 buddies from elsewhere and we stumbled in already loaded. One guy immediately went to the bathroom. When the waitress came the other dude asked if there were any specials. Turns out it was 'dollar pitcher night.' This was something we'd never heard of so my buddy asked, "for how long?" Of course, the answer was "all night." So, we ordered 3. The dude that was in the bathroom returned with a pitcher in each hand. Smiling he said, "guess how much I paid for these 2 pitchers?" So, we had 3 drunk guys and 5 pitchers of beer. Just another night at Ricks American Cafe.
