April 2012 Archives

It's that time of year again, graduation.  However, since there is still two weeks left it's time to live it up while you can, senior's.  Also, since this up coming weekend is the last legitimate weekend for IUP student's the bars on Philly Street are ready to help and assist with your senior bar crawl's. 

On Friday, Wolfie's is handing out drinking diplomas for all the IUP graduates.  I am personally excited for this event since IUP is known for partying and I know we have become experts over these past four years.  Next, on Saturday, it's Cinco De Mayo and you better believe Wolfie's is going to be helping you celebrate and feed your tequila cravings for the holiday. 

Also, since were talking tequila, make sure you check out Cozumel's new tequila bar in the restaurants basement.  I experienced this new bar last night and was very impressed.  They have dollar special drinks every night as well as fun, themed music and a dim, mood-setting bar setting.  I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't been there yet.

Congratulations senior's and good luck!

Let's Go Pen's

| No Comments
Since I'm a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan and playoffs are quickly approaching I decided to do an entry on the bar specials during the big games.  First, let's talk Wolfendale's Pub and Grub.  They offer $1.50 Labatt Blue drafts during every Pen's game.  Also, while you're there make sure to check out their yummy menu of greasy bar food.  Their new Yuengling battered shrimp, tossed in hot and tangy sauce with fries are my favorite.
If you are not a fan of the Wolfie's scene, come to H.B. Culpeppers to see the Pen's in the playoffs.  Their specials for every game are $1 Labatt drafts and BOGO appetizers.  While you're there make sure to check out their awesome menu.  My favorite bites are the Buffalo Bill Cody sandwich and the Greek Chicken Salad.
Also, be sure to hit up Boomerang's for their Pen's game special of $2 Bud Light bottles.  Finally, if you want a Pittsburgh meal in more of a restaurant setting, head over to Steel City Samiches.  Dine in and enjoy a half price "samich" with a purchase of a drink during every Pen's game. 

Let's Go Pen's!

The Coney

| No Comments
In my last entry I discussed a little bit about Wolfie's but the one thing I failed to mention is their competition, The Coney
"The Coney is second most popular night club in Indiana, Pa", according to senior Indiana University of Pennsylvania student, Amanda L. Marguccio, 22.
However, The Coney has the best of both worlds.  Whether or not you like to dance all night or just relax and have a beer, The Coney can feed both needs.
According the The Coney's website and personal experience, The Coney has the largest dance floor in Indiana as well as a huge game room filled with three pool tables along with other games.  They also have a calmer part of the bar on the other side of the dance floor if you're just there to relax. 
Also, like Wolfie's, Coney has some great specials and events every week!  Starting on Tuesday's, my favorite week night, enjoy $.50 well's as you watch the famous dancing contest where you can win $100!  On Wednesday's come to The Coney and sing your favorite hits with DJ Jack's karaoke night and $1 well's from 10-12.  Thursday's are wing night's at The Coney.  Next, start your weekend off $1.50 Bud Light drafts and $2 you call it's from 10-12.  Also ladies, as you enjoy DJ Jack's hits, you have another chance to win $100 in the dance contest!  Finally, on Saturday's enjoy the dance contest as you drink $1.50 Long Island's from 10-12.
"The Coney is my favorite hot spot in Indiana, I love going there on Tuesday's to dance and drink $.50 well's," said Stephanie C. Frederick, 22, IUP senior.
