The ‘Best Penn State Bars/Restaurants’ Bracket: The Championship

It’s time to crown a champion, folks.

After beginning with 32 downtown bars/restaurants, we have just two competitors remaining. To no one’s surprise, Champs Downtown dominated as a No. 1 seed throughout the tournament and now finds itself competing for a championship. The other finalist, Cafe 210 West, has had similar success throughout the previous four rounds, easily dismantling its opponents en route to a finals appearance.

So, which downtown staple will come out on top? Will it be the ultra-popular Champs, or will the recent nice weather push Cafe to victory? You have until 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 9, to crown a champion using this Google Form. You can check out a brief recap of the Final Four by reading on.

In its closest matchup yet, Champs Downtown sneaked by Doggie’s Pub by snagging just 52 more votes. Champs led big for much of the Final Four, but Doggie’s made a late surge at the end to nearly knock off the heavy favorite.

Cafe 210 West took down The Phyrst by totaling 56.6% of the vote. However, The Phyrst may have put up more of a fight than people expected, as despite the loss, it only lost by 90 votes.

This is for championship glory. Champs Downtown vs. Cafe 210 West.

We sleep in May.
