Faegan's, DJ's On the Hill, and Harry's report more student drinkers this semester after demolition of the two popular South Crouse Avenue bars.

Surrounded by chaos, conversations blend into well-known singalongs. Nothing is discernible except the glint of a coin being tossed high in the air. The chatter is all-consuming between Syracuse students of all years.

Now that Hungry Chuck's closed and Orange Crate Brewing Co. is moving, students and the greater community are feeling the effects of the Marshall Street area's changing nightlife scene.

Three male students strolled slowly down the Syracuse University promenade, backpacks on as they headed home from campus after a long Tuesday of classes. An orange April sunset cast a long shadow ahead of them as they talked, laughed and discussed their plans for the evening.

“You going out tonight, bro?” one student asked another.

“I definitely want to. I mean, how many nights do we have left?” the second responded.

“I mean, but where are we going to go?”

Over the course of Tuesday evening, hundreds of students and local residents trickled into the popular bar one last time.

Yes, hundreds of Syracuse University students paid the $20 cover to drink one last pitcher of cheap beer and paint their names on the walls of Hungry Chuck’s Café before it closed for good on Tuesday.

Before the doors were supposed to open at 7 p.m., at least 50 people were already lined up in the alleyway outside the popular student bar. Bodyguards tried to corral students into a single-file line, delaying the official opening of Chuck’s last night by 25 minutes.

The Orange are moving on to the Final Four. Here's a recap of the weekend's games and reactions for the fans.

A weekend full of tough defense and tougher shots culminated in Syracuse’s first Final Four berth in ten years.

After a disappointing finish to the regular season and its last Big East tournament, Syracuse looked poise to prove itself on the biggest stage: the NCAA tournament. It wasn’t an easy road for the fourth-seeded Orange, who needed to push its way through Big Ten and Big East powerhouses Indiana (29-7) and Marquette (26-9) before finally re-living the Final Four dream.

The new Marshall Street coffee joint educates about the origins of its products through a Skype session with a Honduras farmer

With Syracuse gone schizophrenic from all green to all white overnight, there’s no better way to cheer up a whitewashed morning than with a mug of fresh brew.

Friday morning, Café Kubal appeased the masses by offering freshly brewed Honduras coffee paired with a Skype call with its progenitor, coffee farmer Mario Tulio. That’s the benefit of buying local: have a cup and meet the source. (Added bonus: any student who submitted questions for the farmer through Kubal’s social media pages, stood a chance of winning a pour-over-coffee set and a T-shirt.)
