No drinking until they're 21. No clubbing gigging (on the whole) until 21. What do they do? Where do they go? How the f**k do they cope????
If you're not 21 over here you seem to be royally screwed.
I remember coming over here in '94 when we were launching Valkyrie magazine at GenCon when it was still in Milwaukee. I met up with loads of the old Nightfall crew (then actually already part of Wizards of the Coast). Hard drinking Scotsmen. I remember some of them pretty much being confined to their hotels because they couldn't come and party because they weren't old enough. These were guys in their late teens/early twenties who were heavy drinkers!
It's no wonder that I saw a group of kids (punks) down the road from The Viper Room last night gettin g bored and getting in to fights pretty much because they had nothign else to do and no where to go.
