02 - 27 - 2014 State Pattys Day in State College is drying up for Saturday
[CDT] - It's looking like it will be a dry State Patty's Day on Saturday as a beer distributor & another restaurant have been enlisted by PSU to help create an alcohol-free downtown. University officials said yesterday that 34 of 35 downtown State College establishments have now agreed to accept monetary compensation from PSU to stop selling alcohol on the student-created drinking holiday. One downtown restaurant will serve alcohol to its dinner guests. A second restaurant, which had remained undecided Tuesday, took the universityâs offer on yesterday. Last year, the entire downtown was alcohol free.
