What to do at Dartmouth?

I have a few hours free in Hanover, NH-- what should I do?

I'll have most of this evening free in Hanover, NH. Is there anything I should check out before I leave tomorrow morning? I've already gone to the Hood Museum and read in the Baker Library Tower Room.

I'm alone, so I won't be going to a bar or a restaurant, but a great café or bookstore would be right up my alley. I have a car, but don't want to use it, so I want to stay within the downtown/Dartmouth area.

The Dirt Cowboy Cafe on the corner of Main and Wheelock is great for hanging out. Have you checked out the Orozco murals in Baker Library? Walking through the BEMA (Big Empty Meeting Area) is very peaceful, as is a quick hike up to Velvet Rocks. The Thayer School of Engineering has some interesting exhibits in their new building, and you can always find someone to show you around. Shows at the Hop are usually great, and there is almost always something on Friday night.

There's no reason why you can't go to a bar or restaurant in Hanover by yourself. When I lived there, it wasn't unusual.

If you don't want to drive out of Hanover, then what you see is pretty much what you get. This is a list of things happening this evening on campus. Check the bulletin boards around campus for other possibilities.

Yeah, no reason you can't pull up a stool at the Canoe Club if you're feeling classy, or Murphy's if you're feeling Irish.

Otherwise... movie at The Nugget? Throw down a blanket and read on the green? Hang out with the high schoolers in the Foodstop parking lot? (Assuming they still do that.)
