^Packed at lunch and most Friday nights. It's really nice.....
It's about time .... that is one tradition you guys need to work hard on bringing back.

When you get ALL the Friday nights packed out .... then work on Saturday nights .... :)

I used to hear stories about this O-club. But they were from people known to exaggerate, and they were pre-1990's destruction of aviator culture.

they have yuengling on tap...so its great
Dude, every fvcking O-Club in the Navy has that sh!t as far as I've seen. My theory is its all the academy guys got used to it, and thus its prevelant in the O-clubs.

Master's comment about the DUI nazis is right on, thats why we don't go to the clubhouse for drinks after flying, since there is no O-club at Mayport. That, and it closes at 7.

They don't serve that swill at NASWI, but then again, the Pac NW is brewing country. Your average 7-11 beer aisle can compete with the best "specialty" stores in the country.

I couldn't agree with you more A4s. I'll see what I can do about it.;)
Brett is well on his way to changing the guard... ;)

As for post 9/11...they do allow quite a few civ. women there for OCS Dining-ins. :)

The best OClub I've seen in the Navy so far is NAS Oceana - followed, very closely by the I-Bar, NAS North Island. The latter is awesome...I've once lost in Ship, Captain & Crew so badly, I left with a $200 bar tab...and that takes a $hitton of beer.

edit: Tradition is to go in and touch the plane/helo that you fly hanging above the bar...it brings good luck.

Couldn't agree with you more about the I-Bar. I still have eight I-Bar tokens from my senior cruise with VS-41. First night at NASNI, our lieutenant takes us there and we start playing Ship, Captain, Crew and whatever the other game it was that they play there. I think I lost five times in a row and called it a night. The very last night we're there, I start playing for the h*ll of it and, of course, I couldn't lose. Still one of my favorite bars.

It sounds like Oceana is trying to keep (or get back to ???) the days when the O' Club - wherever we were - was a central focus in our off duty socializing and relaxing hours.

Back-in-the-day .... we would pack 150-200 people into the O'Club on any given Friday or Saturday night. Add a band, dancing, lots of "alcohol bonding", a $3000 (a lot of money then:)) Klondike game in the corner, and we were off to the races. It was part of our life style, we liked it, and you guys will never get to experience it ... and sometimes I think that's too bad.

I'm doing my part to rebuild the tradition. The last few Fridays have had such highlights as the CO of a certain NAS encouraging a table of O-1's and their lady friends to belly-up to the bar while the AF guys tried desperately to play crud on a $10,000 billiards table (unfortunately, it LITERALLY took them 20 minutes to explain the rules to some younger guys...F-in AF, you gotta take a damn EP test to play a drinking game.) Meanwhile, some old lady was trying her damndest to get it on with some VT studs as the VT-86 crew played quarters with an assortment of Skippers, XO's and OPSO's. All in all, it's coming along nicely.:D
