According to Annarbor.com, Rick's was voted among the best college bars in America. This seems to be a very misguided thing. If Rick's is a standard for college bars then I don't know what to expect from other schools. Rick's wouldn't make a personal list of bars to puke on.
My top ten list of Ann Arbor "college" bars would start off with Old Town and end somewhere around the Heidelberg, but it would never stoop to Rick's.
