A little confusion is expected when the haze of 1:30 a.m. rolls around, and you're scrambling for last call. But there's one little spot in the Fan where the disorientation may set in most: Are you at Buddy's or Curbside? Here's a way to tell the difference:

Buddy's Place
325 N. Robinson St.

1. Closer to the North Pole.

2. Younger crowd dancing on booth seats.

3. Better odds for "accidental" dry-hump.

4. The place to go for natural disasters.

5. Higher percentage of dudes.*

*Dudes defined as baseball-cap-and-shorts.

Curbside Café
2525 Hanover Ave.

1. Khakis are pleated rather than flat-front.

2. Flags!

3. "We have bingo." — Cary Allen

4. Neon sign offers helpful directions.

5. Higher percentage of guys.*

*Guys defined as shorts-and-baseball cap.
