1. Everyone who went out in Cambridge in the '00s knows that the best place for a night out was Cindies.
2. It didn't even matter that the DJ had a policy of only ever playing 30 seconds of the chorus of any song before switching to something else.
3. If you hung out in John's bar for long enough on a Wednesday night, you were guaranteed to pull.
4. Although the place you really wanted to hang out in Cindies was the smoking area.
5. If you were a massive lad, you might have even been filmed strawpedoeing a VK on Cindies Stories.
6. If you planned on ending up in Cindies, you had to play drinking games to get drunk first.
Drinking a bottle of Basics rosé and a few glasses of Glen's vodka and squash over a game of Ring of Fire usually did the trick.
7. Otherwise, you might have pre-drunk in your college bar.
8. You might have also got drunk on a swap at The Mahal, where £10 paid for a chicken korma, a beer, and corkage gave you permission to do anything to the property.
Standing on chairs to find your friends, throwing curry, and pennying everyone sitting near you was encouraged.
9. If you didn't fancy The Mahal, you might have gone to The Curry King.
10. Going out entirely in fancy dress was common in Cambridge.
11. If it was a Thursday night, there was only one place to be: Life.
12. Life was lethal because of its £1.50 double Jägerbombs.
13. It was essentially a corridor, with condensation dripping from its ceiling, where you spent your entire night walking in circles between the smoking area and the dance floor.
14. At some point, you probably ventured into Spoon's because it was easy to sneak your own booze in.
15. And if you ever made it to Revs, you probably never returned.
16. You did, however, spend every Sunday night in Fez.
17. You mourned the day that Kambar shut down.
18. You were very excited when Lola Lo opened, but you soon realised that it was just a second-rate Cindies with faces on its cups.
19. The nights you didn't spend in Cambridge's clubs were spent in The Maypole. And every night that started in there ended up in the ADC bar.
20. You had very strong opinions about where to get cheesy chips at the end of your night out. You were either loyal to the Van of Life, the Van of Death, or Gardies.
If you weren't loyal to Vas at Gardies, you were a fool because he made his own mayonnaise.
