Wings Over Happy Valley to Limit Late Night Hours

It’s a sad day in Happy Valley.

Once a premier Penn State late night food staple, Wings Over Happy Valley will have new hours this year. The wing behemoth will now close at 1 a.m. nightly, down from the 3:45 a.m. Thursday-Saturday closing time customers have come to expect over the years. The generations of Penn Staters who have enjoyed coming home from the bars or parties at 2 a.m. and ordering a Hangar 2 (and probably regretting it in the morning) have one more thing to be nostalgic about.

My delivery guy indicated that “staff morale” was the driving reason behind the closure. Being open until 3:45 means that late night staff and cooks won’t get home until 5-6 a.m. which led to unmanageable turnover. The staffer indicated that the hours will be in place until “at least next December” when there will be a potential reevaluation.

Somewhere, Rob Bolden is crying.
