We Want To See Your Old State College Bar Souvenirs

After the devastating loss of Mad Mex this weekend, we’re once again reminded not to take State College staples for granted. These once-downtown favorites helped create lifelong memories for generations of Penn Staters, and they’ll certainly never be forgotten.

From The All-American Rathskeller to Bar Bleu, the closing of iconic downtown bars leaves some with no option but to take something we can remember them by. Maybe you “borrowed” a cup, brought home a full menu, or maybe even snuck out with some bathroom decor.

Nevertheless, we want to see your vintage State College bar memorabilia. Fill out this Google Form and email any photos you have to [email protected] to potentially be featured on our site.
