15. A dry town
Deering does not allow alcoholic beverages. Since there are no roads from there to anywhere else, it is not like you can go outside the city limits and find a bar. I found this out from the internet; no one at the school mentioned it to me. I don't care about alcohol. It is no problem to give up my approximately-four-drinks-a-year habit. (No wild Purim or Simchas Torah celebrations.) Still, it would matter to a lot of people, and I am surprised that no one mentioned anything to me.
