50 States of drunk. The second: Pennsylvania.

Posted: 20 February 2011 in New England, The States

Philadelphia or Pittsburg? Neither. Yes, neither. While each will surely be a great trip, we are going to talk about a great little place in the middle of nowhere: State College, PA. Smack-dab in the middle of the state, somewhere between the Eagles and the Steelers, lies a town built up around Penn State. It is a place to relive all the college mayhem you may have enjoyed, endured, escaped, or elluded from in your youth. With a million bars to chose from, I recommend the Phyrst. It is a cleverly-mispelled underground-dive that serves $5 pitchers of “Lager” (what we outsiders lovingly know as ‘yeungling’). It is certain to be a ridiculous night of debachery. Just remember to walk back to your hotel–As with the high spirits and low prices you will certainly find yourself in a stammering state in no time. When you do take the time to recover in the morning, consider heading out for cereal. State College also has a great little breakfast spot dedicated entirely to the magical world of cereal, not to mention plenty of breakfast diners, all geared towards you: the weary traveler. And if you happen to time it well, you could even catch whatever touring show is coming through town, and have a scoop of their ever popular ice cream (and rightly so). Just ask where to get ice cream on campus and I am sure they will point you in the right direction. If there’s no line, you’ve probably mistakenly headed to the Ben’n’Jerry’s.
