The bars aren’t exactly kicking yet, and as much eye candy as there is roaming the CofC library, it’s not quite a kosher place to drop your pick-up lines. So where to score a last-minute date? On any given afternoon, there are scores of good-looking coeds running their labs, terriers, and shepherds at the new dog park by Ackerman Field on Hwy 61. Borrow your buddy’s mutt and strike it up with that pretty girl with the Shih Tzu. Then avoid the awkward pause when your newfound canine friend mounts her left leg.
