Hanley’s is the college student’s thirsty Thursday dream, girls eighteen plus get in for free! With Johnson and Wales University, Providence College and Rhode Island College just around the corner, you are sure to spot some campus gear. Expect great top-charting music and lots of dancing. Keep in mind, the Thursday crowd can get a little heavy. If you’re looking for a bit more room on the dance floor, check it out on a Friday or Saturday. You might have to pay a cover, but you won’t have to push through the crowds. Oh, and we can’t forget about the custom beer pong tables. Take your pong partner and play for fun, or come in on a Monday to play for cash! 52 Pine St., Providence, 861-0001.

Another Thursday dream, but sorry kids — this one is twenty-one plus. You can’t go wrong with $4 shots, $5 drinks and no cover (Thursday nights only). There is a cover on Friday and Saturday, with a little more of an expensive menu, but the experience is definitely worth it. Two pianists battle it out on stage with whatever song you request. From “All The Small Things” by Blink-182 to “Closer” by The Chainsmokers, you are in for a night of laughing and singing. It’s a great place to go if you are celebrating a birthday! Get your friends on stage and embarrass them; we promise it is quality entertainment.  3 Davol Sq., Providence, 270-7828.
