Not beer related but long island teas came up in a different thread. Those take me back to my college days (late 80’s). There was a bar called Bird’s that used to be where Sally’s is in Stadium Village. They had 2 for 1 long island teas on Mondays & Wednesdays.

Are long island teas still a thing? I honestly have heard much about them since college.

The Downtowner in Houghton has Pitcher Thursdays still. Long Islands (and the variants which call for Powerade instead of Coke; 5 flavors, you drink all five, you are “riding the rainbow”). Last summer it was $9.50 for a pitcher, IIRC. You don’t get a glass, You get the pitcher and 2 straws. When I started going to Houghton in 2007, pitchers were $6.
