Binghamton University Bar Crawl 2016
Today marks the end of the spring semester at Binghamton University. This means finals are over and students are getting fired up for the Binghamton Bar Crawl which is one last hurrah with friends before they say goodbye for the summer, or don cap and gown and graduate.
About a thousand or so Binghamton University students are expected to descend on State Street in downtown Binghamton for Binghamton University's annual bar crawl and that crawl happens tonight, May 19th. Students usually start on the Westside and walk or “crawl”, to the State Street bars.
Not sure what a “bar crawl” is? Urban Dictionary describes it as this, "When individuals go from bar to bar in a small vicinity. Usually they drink so much at the first few bars that by the time they get to the last one they're crawling from drunkenness."
According to our news department, State Street will be closed between Court and Hawley starting at 1pm today and will remain closed into the night as the streets are flooded with students.
WBNG reports that there will be extra police presence on the streets and that the City's open container law will be strictly enforced.
