Of those arrests, 78 were for underaged drinking -- and many included great debauchery: peeing on curbs, punching police in the back, and taking off panties.
But after a number of FAU students tweeted yesterday using #RIPcantina, it appears the popular college bar may be no longer.
Yesterday afternoon, Twitter lit up with message after message from FAU students lamenting the demise of 101 Cantina:

101 Cantina, according to its site and signs plastered on its building, opens daily at 4 p.m., but calls yesterday at 4:14 and 4:56 p.m. went unanswered, with minutes of ringing. A call to 101 Management Group, which owns Cantina, was answered at 4:25 p.m. The voice on the other end claimed to not know about any rumors of the place closing and said, "They should answer the phone. They open at 4."
