12:05 a.m.

Bar: Babe's of Carytown

Who: Ashley Saxon, 23

Drinking: Miller Lite with a lime.

What's with the two bottles? "I like to be prepared. Why not? I like to hang outside."

On Richmond nightlife: "I would say it's up and coming. It's summer right now, so people are here for good. When you have people from school and stuff that are here, it completely changes. I feel like in the summertime though, it's all real. Everyone's here to have a good time."
