The bar and restaurant’s pop-up style event will take place at a restaurant in Pittsburgh called Pork & Beans, which is known for its Texas-inspired BBQ and smokehouse flavors. Pork & Beans is located at 136 6th St. in Pittsburgh, and the event will kick off at 11:30 ahead of the noon game in Minneapolis.

The event will feature Champs favorites, like its signature wings, egg rolls, Bloody Marys, and of course, dirty sprites. There will also be Champs merch and a live DJ to keep energy levels high.

This isn’t the first time Champs has hosted a special event, so the pop-up will bring a little bit of home to Penn State alumni who now reside in enemy territory. But don’t worry, Champs Downtown will also be open for everyone else who will be in Happy Valley come game time.
