Drunk Frats and Old Ladies
I dont know why the stags come in swarms to Riga to go to lame, girl-less, overpriced bars. But they do in droves. And during the day, try and wedge between the gaggles of old men and women off for their tea or "authentic"Latvian food that seems a lot like every other food I had in Eastern Europe.
Insider Tip:Go to the parks. They are beautiful on their own. Take a book, but really amuse yourself by watching girls hobble down cobblestone streets in ankle-breaking heels.
