Name: Alex Jiao
Setting: Pour House (800 Harden St.)
I usually don’t like to talk about the weather, but it really is terrible tonight. What do you like to do on a rainy day?
A: Yeah, it’s bad. But the bars in Five Points are so close together, and most have awnings. So bar hopping is easier here than it is in the Vista, since they are so spread out.
But on a rainy day at home, what do you like to do?
A: Watch Netflix, man!
I hear you. What is your latest Netflix addiction?
A: The best show I have gotten into lately is Orange is the New Black. It’s about women in the prison system. The writers of Weeds created it, so if you like that show, you’ll love this one.
So why did you choose Pour House?
A: I have been coming here since 2010, my sophomore year at [the University of South Carolina]. I really like the crowd here. It’s not really Greek, but it is a college crowd. There are a lot of regulars that come here, and they have some great deals on drinks.
What are the deals?
A: Ever since I have been coming here they have always had $3 Jager bombs, and on Thursdays, they have $1 PBRs.
So you graduated from USC? what are you doing now?
A: Yeah, I was a visual communications student at USC, and I’m looking to relocate back to Columbia. I’m looking for a graphic design job.
What is your dream job?
A: I want to work for a big magazine. Something related to technology, like Wired.
Sounds cool. What bars do you go to when you aren’t at Pour House?
A: I like to go to Pinch.
