Do a 180

February 08, 1997|By Justina Stevens

Are you a teenager or Generation X-er who feels that there aren't any clubs to go to anymore?

Maybe you should visit the 180 Club one weekend and see what it's all about.

"We opened this club to give teenagers as well as Generation X-ers a place to go that is both drug and alcohol free," says Adam Stratton, one of the owners of the 180 Club. He and Tom Munson own the club which seems to be a hit so far in this town. They gave it the name to symbolize the turnaround the club hopes to achieve. Instead of allowing drugs and alcohol, they will keep it free of both.

Not only does it offer teens a place to go, it also offers local bands a chance to perform for people in the community. And bands seem to be liking this idea.

Food and drinks are sold as well as souvenirs from the bands performing on the night you go. If you want to dance, there's a place for you to dance. If you want to sit and talk, there's a place for you to do that. If you just want to listen to the bands perform, you can do that too.


So if you and your friends are bored one Friday or Saturday night and think there is nothing to do, think again. Go to the 180 Club and you'll see what you've been missing.

And if you are thinking of going but want to know what bands will be playing before you decide, then call the concert hotline. It's updated on Mondays and announces concerts for the week you call and the following week.

The number is 1-301-714-4576.
