The Oxford venue that housed many an Fraternity/Sorority Redneck Swap and performance by the Tyrone Smith Review has gone on to its great reward. The Gin, an Ole Miss drinking institution in the 80′s and 90′s, burned to the ground late Saturday night. No one was hurt in the blaze and no Phi Delts from 1996 were available to comment on how on the fire might have started.
The former working Cotton Gin turned bar had been a safe haven for those needing and possessing fake IDs for some time, but for the past ten years had been pretty much nothing more than an abandoned building thanks to an incident in the late 90′s involving The 2 Live Crew.
Thats right, Luke Skywalker and his dancers who may or may have not performed lude acts on stage during their performance at The Gin that night caused an entire drinking establishment to lose their liquor license and ultimately be shut down. I think thats how we all want to go out.
