Last Tuesday was my 21st birthday! I went to the pub and had a great time listening to live music and drinking local beer! The pub is a really great space to interact with peers and faculty - some faculty members regularly play bluegrass which is one aspect of GMC I find especially important to the sense of community.
For those who are not familiar with the Poultney area, Tap's Tavern is the pub most people go to in town. Every Tuesday is bluegrass and $3 draft beer night, and every Saturday is open mic night.
It feels good to be able to participate more in Poultney's small town community. Aside from the pub scene, turning 21 has some other student perks. Every semester, the GMC community hosts a beer or wine & cheese tasting workshop, which is a rite of passage for students who have been at GMC since their freshman year. I'm excited to get to experience that soon!
