BSL has been my go-to bar for many years now. Before college my friends and I would go for the great atmosphere, the TV covered walls, and the great daily drink specials. Now I go more to study and drink.
Black Sheep Lodge is located on the thriving South Lamar Blvd. If you live in the southern part of Austin, you may have already been there. During the day there is not a lot patrons and seats are easy to find. At night it can get pretty busy so daytime is your best bet to be out of the way and get some work done.
Food and Beer
The food is your typical bar fare with their most notable being the hamburgers. The prices are a bit high but they do have a great lunch menu that will not set you back. The queso is good for snacking and comes with refillable chips.
The one thing that keeps me going back to BSL is the amazing daily drink specials. BSL has a tremendous selection of beers on tap and in bottles/cans. They have can beer specials throughout the week. However, one day beats out the rest: Wednesday’s. On Wednesday’s they have $1.00 White Trash Cans which include Lone State and PBR tall boys. Saturday will quench your liquor kick and will only set you back $3.00 for well drinks.
BSL has public WiFi which seems to be reliable. It is better for you to have all your electronics charged but just in case there are plugs located throughout the place.

College is a tough time for some. Trying to be responsible and juggling a social life with little to no money can be very difficult. I am an older college student than most, but I still like drinking and oddly I like studying. Because of this, two years ago I started mixing the two and found some hot, and not so hot, places to chill for hours at a time.
When I first started college it was difficult for me to get into a groove. Studying was on the back burner because I wanted to “do things” out and about. With an assumption that I cannot be the only one that has experienced this conundrum, Study Drunk will do its damnedest on supplying you with the information needed to accommodate both.
This will be a place for reviews on restaurant/bars that meet certain criteria: cost of well drinks and beer, connectivity, environment, and food; the purpose being that you spend more time studying while enjoying yourself at the same time.
One thing to remember, whether you are studying or just going for fun, is to tip the wait staff. This is the most crucial piece of information I can impart. You will be taking their time and section. Do not be a rude student/person. Tip them and they will remember you and be more inviting in future returns.
