Professor Thom was a pioneering 19th century bartender and his namesake, subterranean, 41-foor bar has a thing or two to teach thirsty scholars. How about a lesson in exotic beers? Among the 15 or so brews on tap are the high-octane Belgian ale Delirium Tremens and England's Blackthorn Cider.

NYU and New School students can further supplement their off-campus educations during Tuesday’s trivia night, or by watching CNN on one of the 16 TVs. But Yankees fans beware: One of the owners, Jim McGuire, started the Sox scene at the Riviera and he continues that tradition here. For those who come to drink and not to think, top-shelf liquor and sobering burgers and sandwiches ensure that the hangover won't be too harsh when it's time for the big test tomorrow.Extra
