Cafe 210 West Will Close State Patty’s Day

Another one bites the dust. Cafe 210 West is joining the list of bars that intend to shut their doors to patrons this Saturday for State Patty’s Day 2014.

Owner J.R. Magnan confirmed this afternoon that the popular bar/restaurant will not operate on March 1. Currently, The Phyrst, Local Whiskey, Lion’s Den, The Brewery, and Levels are the only other bars that have announced that they will accept Penn State’s financial incentives to close on the infamous drinking holiday.

For this State Patty’s Day, Penn State is taking a four-tier approach to the stipend offered to bars as incentive for closing. The University has previously said that this money will likely come from parking expenses, as was done with last year’s stipends.

  • Occupancy of 350 or more: $7,500
  • Occupancy from 250-349: $6,000
  • Occupancy from 100-249: $5,000
  • Occupancy levels less than 100: $2,500

Penn State Spokesman Bill Zimmerman declined to comment on which other establishments intend to close this weekend, but says additional information will come as the week progresses.

“We’re pleased to report that the majority of downtown restaurants and bars have accepted our offer and will close or not serve alcohol,” Zimmerman said. “We’re confident that this commitment from business owners will significantly weaken State Patty’s Day.”
