Penn State released the complete list of bars and bottle shops that will restrict the sale of alcohol on State Patty’s Day, and unfortunately for the 21-and-up crowd, it’s a lengthy one. Here is the complete list, according to Penn State:
Allen Street Grill, Bar Bleu, The Brewery, Brewsky’s Bottle Shop (East Beaver Avenue and South Pugh Street locations), Cafe 210, Chili’s, Chrome, Chumley’s, The Corner Room, Darkhorse, The Deli, Gingerbread Man, the Hopshop, Indigo, Inferno and Kildare’s.
Levels, Lion’s Den, Local Whiskey, Mad Mex, Bill Pickle’s, The Phyrst, The Rathskeller, Rotelli, Rumors, The Saloon, the Shandygaff, Sharkies, Tarragon, The Tavern, Zeno’s, Zeno’s to Go and Zola.
Whiskers, in the Nittany Lion Inn, also will close.
This is the second year that Penn State offered to pay bars to close on State Patty’s Day. Last year, the university used revenues in campus parking operations on previous State Patty’s Days to cover the incentive, according to Penn State Spokesman Bill Zimmerman. This year, the university is offering a four-tier compensation system to individual establishments based on occupancy levels:
— Businesses with occupancy of 350 or more: $7,500
— Businesses with occupancy from 250-349: $6,000
— Businesses with occupancy from 100-249: $5,000
— Businesses with occupancy levels less than 100: $2,500
In addition to the bar closures, a no-guest policy has been instituted for sorority floors during State Patty’s Day weekend, and some apartment buildings will not allow any parties.
