What are your go-to bars/restaurants?

For Penn State games, my go-to bar is Dark Horse. Friendly alums always willing to chat, not too crowded.

What should you order?

Since Yuengling isn't an option in Chicago (yet?! come on!), gotta keep it PA and go Iron City. Then hit Lucky's for a Pittsburgh sandwich (fries ON the sandwich!).

What landmarks remind you of campus?

Soldier Field doesn't begin to touch upon the majesty of a game at Beaver Stadium, but it's a nice reminder. Also, the statues in Oz Park remind me of the Lion Shrine!

How would you spend your downtime?

Chicago sports fans are special. Belly up to some neighborhood bars and you'll make friends in no time. Just be sure to check affiliations before entering. I wouldn't be caught dead in Gaslight on tourney day. [Editor's note: Gaslight is an Ohio State bar.]
