Over Memorial Day weekend the Hooters on 538 E.College Ave. unexpectedly closed its doors, leaving employees a little less perky. The once delightfully tacky restaurant will be replaced with “a very kid-friendly” Kildare’s Irish pub.
According to StateCollege.com, the Hooters staff was let go with little notice over the weekend. Renovations will begin almost immediately in order to have the new restaurant ready to open by next fall.
This move to State College is part of a larger effort by the Kildare's brand to establish itself in college towns throughout the country. Dave Magrogan, CEO of the West Chester-based Kildare's group told StateCollege.com that other locations are being developed near Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan State.
This weekend, the Penn State rugby team will be taking to the pitch in Columbus, Ohio. But they will be playing a totally different game than ever before.
The Lions will be competing in the Collegiate 7's Championship Invitational this weekend along with 15 other top rugby teams in the nation. This is also the first American rugby event to be televised nationally in the States. In doing this, the sport may gain a whole new audience. Many people (myself included) got interested in rugby at the end of last year and this should only add to the curiosity about the game.
Read on to learn more about the broadcast, and the new rules being used for this invitational.
