Located in Centre County, Pennsylvania, State College is a college town heavily influenced by the campus life of Penn State University and have gained the nickname “Happy Valley” for its resilience during the Great Depression. Downtown State College provide the public with essential resource, accommodation, and entertainment that stretch along College Ave and Beaver Ave. In 2010, CQ Press ranked State College as the third-safest metropolitan area in the country. They say there’s something magical about the Nittany Valley, where time just seems to stand still. Updates on the downtown area’s current affairs and additions can be located on this topic page.
Ever since Grillers was shut down by the State College Department of Ordinance Enforcement & Public Health (those clean freak bastards) I have been in a state of mourning. So on Friday night when I was drinking underage and heard the news whilst stumbling my way over to Beaver ave I was an emotional wreck. Luckily, I was pointed in the direction of Billy O’s.
