Or, at least Complex thinks so.
Described as an ordinary college bar “with a far better menu,” the Tombs just barely slid into the magazine’s “50 Best College Bars in America” rankings. Why only 50th best? Probably because Complex thinks that everyone in the bar “seems to wear flip flops and collared shirts.”

Due to violations that stemmed from a felony assault, the D.C. Alcohol and Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) shut down Third Edition for three days in early August.
The bar was closed from August 8 to August 10. According to the Georgetowner, ABRA temporarily closed Third Edition for violating its security plan and voluntary agreement on several occasions. The felony assault, which occurred last February, sparked a six-month investigation of the bar; the violations were discovered during the course of the investigation.
Third Edition’s owners also had to pay a $1,750 fine.
For the sake of those underage among us, let’s hope that these violations don’t affect Thirds’ lax carding policy.

Why they chose “Viva Las Hoyas” as this year’s Dis-O theme:
[W]e want Seniors to approach their last year on the Hilltop as if they were spending the week in Vegas–they should live it up! At this time of the year, many seniors become preoccupied with graduate school applications, job interviews, and thesis writing. They forget to take advantage of everything Georgetown University and the D.C. community has to offer … “What Happens on the Hilltop Stays on the Hilltop” [will remind] seniors to live their last year in college to the fullest instead of getting bogged down by the stress of the future. After all, we’re only young once.
