Game Watch Info

We know you have questions, and we're here to help

Where do I park?

There is no 'designated' parking for Black Bear Saloon, but there is FREE parking on the streets adjacent from Friday night at 6PM through Monday morning at 6AM.  This means if you find a spot on a street (non handicapped/fire lane) you will be able to park for free all day Saturday.  If you also wish there are two lots, one across the street, and one next door that are pay-to-park but they are of no relation to Black Bear

Once inside, where do I go?

Black Bear is a fairly sizeable place, and once inside you should bear (pun intended) to the left.  Up a small set of 3 stairs against the far wall is another private bar that will be reserved just for your group every Saturday!

Did you say private bar?

Yes!  Every Saturday your group will have its own space to watch Penn State games with your own control over 10 HDTVs, sound, and your very own personal bartender whose only job is to refill your drinks and get you fed!

We also have a 10'x10' drop down projection screen that will be available for all afternoon and early evening games!

Do you get specials?

OF COURSE!  You will get food and drink specials one half hour before kickoff through one half hour after the final whistle has blown.  This should hopefully allow for the best game watch viewing experience possible!

The Specials:

Your Drink specials are

$4 Coors Light or Miller Lite Drafts

$4 Harpoon IPA Draft

$4 Half Full Seasonal Draft

$15 Buckets of Coors or Miller Lite bottles

$3 "The 409" shot (soco/lime)

$5 "Roaring Lion" drink (malibu, vodka, blue curacao, lemonade, sprite)

Your Food specials are

--we created an entire discount menu STRICTLY for PSU game watch parties!  You gotta see it to believe it!
