Penn State Everywhere

Penn State BarWherever you go, you’re liable to run into someone from Penn State, or with Penn State connections. This is an unavoidable fact of life in Pennsylvania, and on the East Coast. The Penn State Alumni Association is the largest dues-paying alumni association in the world, totaling 161,234 members. Now, picture all the people connected to those alumni that have a soft spot for the University.

This is a great resource if you’re looking for a job, an internship, or… a bar?

Yes. It’s true. Bars around the country and the world cater to Penn State fans. This post from the UPenn blog, Under the Button, highlights The Blockley Pourhouse, a Philly bar that offers deals to Penn State fans, and shows Penn State games every week.

During all Penn State games (first game is September 5th vs the Akron Zips) the Blockley will offer all you can eat wings, corn dogs, fries and onion rings for $10.

Black Shoe Diaries offers a post that notes the best Penn State bars in the country, locales as diverse as Florida and Arizona.

A typical one says…

Ugly Joe

This Google Map of Penn State Bars shows the spread of Penn State across the nation. So, if you find yourself in Houston, Texas on a Saturday, the SRO Sports Bar and Cafe is the place to be.

Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
