Phyrst and Cafe 210 West Closed Early on State Patty’s Day
Penn State may have hoped it shut down State Patty’s Day for good this year, but downtown State College was a sea of green like it had not been since 2012.
At least two locals bars have closed their doors to the public early due to rowdy State Patty’s Day patrons. The Phyrst and Cafe 210 West closed at about 7 p.m. Saturday.
When asked via text message if the Phyrst closed because bar patrons were “too out of control,” Phyrst owner Mike Fullington confirmed that was the reason he chose to close early this year.
Fullington added that Local Whiskey, another one of the bars he manages, will remain open.
Cafe 210 West also closed to the public early on State Patty’s Day. Employees confirmed that the doors closed early in part due to rowdy bar patrons but also due to a private event that begins at 10 p.m.
