In Memoriam

There are many amazing sites to see on and off campus at Penn State and State College, PA but many great bars and restaurants have been lost and there are several below that need to be remembered.

The Rathskeller Penn State

The Rathskeller

Opened in 1933, days after prohibition ended The Rathskeller was the greatest college bar there ever was!  Whether doing a "Case Study" on Fridays after class or breaking a word record on  "Case Day" there was no better place to hang  out. The music, the atmosphere  and the cult of the Skeller is timeless. The beer, the laughter and the good times flowed freely at the All-American Rathskeller and beginning in 1983 they broke the world record for most cases sold in 1 day. And it wasn't just any beer they were serving, it was Rolling Rock. Case Day broke the record three more times. The record reached 943 in 1991, 1003 in 1993 and in 1996 reached the 1053 mark, which stills stands. Sadly the Skeller was closed by new owners in  2018 ending its run as Pennsylvania's longest continuously operating bar.  Listen to the WPSU report below.

Ye Olde College Diner Penn State

Ye Olde College Diner

A classic American diner with a vibe you could only find at Penn State. The only place to hang out with your crew at 3am after the bars are closed to fuel up on eggs, french toast and their famous Grilled Sticky best served with a scoop of vanilla Creamery ice cream. Since it opened in 1929 The Diner had been a comfort-food port-in-the-ivory-tower-storm for students, townies and alumni alike. Ye Olde College Diner closed in 2018 and it's sad to know that we can never again stop by  for The Penn Stater, The Nittany Lion or any of the other specials. Luckily we can still get original Grilled Stickies at The Corner Room and The Creamery!  You can also buy them online! Click the picture above to order.
