nightlife for u21 yr olds

my 20 yr old daughter and friends will hopefully spend 3 months in newport in the summer. what kind of social life can they expect.. can they go into a bar and have a drink at all or can they have a glass of wine even with a meal../?

i suppose clubs are off limits. theyve never been in the USA before so how strict is it really? cn they buy a beer in the offlicence.

dont get me wrong its not like im promoting her drinking habits but here in ireland legal age is 18 so shes used to having a few beers etc. thsnks

Yes, the drinking age is 21 in all the states, in a town like Newport with a lot of crazy twenty-somethings already, it is pretty strictly enforced at most clubs and bars. I know it's hard to imagine coming from Europe. Waitresses are supposed to ask at dinner, do they all, probably not. That said, I worked at restaurants in Newport with a lot of young people, Irish and others, and they all had a good time, and worked things out.
