Rites of Spring
Updated: Aug 22, 2019
It’s 3:30 on a Saturday afternoon, and I head over to Vanderbilt to catch people going into the Rites of Spring concert. There’s a fair smattering of people over college age, like the gal in this picture, and another bunch of high schoolers waiting in line.
In the distance, there’s sounds of revelry coming from Frat Row. I investigate, and sure ‘nuf, that’s where the collegians are.
I can confidently say I have never seen so many drunk people on one street. Not so great for taking pics, because clearly, these future leaders have figured out they don’t want an employer to see them on Facebook, getting their drunk on in the middle of the afternoon.
Hedonist city, it was.
