       Back in the days when Rainfrog and I hit the clubs every weekend, Spin was there. We hardly missed a night since it was cheaper than other places. We met Seven and his crowd at Spin, and we often danced together up until closing time. I'll never forget all the friends I made from different countries around the world.

       Eleven years have passed since then. Other hip spots have come and gone, yet Spin lives on with each new generation of young party animals who walk through the door. For one thing, it's cheap. The cover charge, which includes one free drink, costs NT$200 on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday; NT$250 on Friday, Saturday and holiday eves. And, if you stop in at Bar 45 for a drink, you'll receive a free entry ticket. The Spin crowd isn't stuffy, another plus.

       The dance floor is tight, but there's always space to groove no matter who you are, and the dress code isn't strict so you can be yourself. The lighting is not too bright or flashy - just enough to party hard. After all, young kids have the stamina to rock all night long, right? The music is loud and lively, from hip-hop to drum'in bass, modern rock, punk and 70's classics. So save your voice and just enjoy. Spin attracts a faithful crowd of internationals from National Taiwan Normal University, so many that you might imagine you're in another country.

       The laid back atmosphere and awesome music draw both Chinese and Western students who are out to fully enjoy themselves. The drinks are cheap so you can indulge. The price for a bottle of beer on average is NT$150, some are only NT$100, and Coronas are $170. Cocktails are on average NT$200 and some are only NT$170. Wine and champaigne are on average $150 per glass and NT$600 per bottle.

       Now that I am in my thirties, I felt a little awkward going back to Spin. But it didn't take long to enjoy the music and alcohol just like the good old days. Next time, I'll drag my old crew along and we will ¡§Spin¡¨ 'til the break of dawn.
