Readers who followed all of my Olympic observations will have noted that the great majority of them were extremely negative, as is this one. However, if you're interested in the comparison, I did manage to get even darker a few times over on the Barstool - notably in this post, which makes most of the same points as the one below, but even more bitterly.
For the sake of balance, you might check out this Barstool post for a slightly more positive review of that crazy 17 days. (Oh, what the heck, I'll append it at the bottom here.)
I had expected almost every bar to be busy, all night, every night. (In fact, with only a handful of exceptions, the bar scene was very, very quiet this month.)
