No matter where you are in your life, what you are doing, or who you are with, one thing remains constant day-in and day-out; We all have to eat. Food and drink are essential human needs for every living person from every walk of life. Therefore, some of our best memories, most meaningful conversations, and most important moments of our lives and friendships with Beta Sig Brothers happened over dinner or drinks, sitting down face-to-face at one of our favorite spots in State College.
Restaurants and bars in college towns can act as refuges for students weary from academia, friends looking to blow off steam, and groups of people meeting to discuss common goals. There is something about sharing food and drink during these life moments, in a familiar and welcoming atmosphere that makes these moments all the more memorable and important.
Friendship is not unlike sustenance in that it nourishes us. While we eat and drink to fuel our bodies, we maintain friendships to fuel our minds and hearts. It is no mystery as to why the two human needs; friendship and sustenance, pair so well together and why our memories of our time with Beta Sig tend to center around our favorite bars and restaurants from our time in State College.
Think back to your college days as a Brother of Beta Sig. Where did you and your fellow Brothers go when you wanted to get a drink? Where do you go to eat with your family when you come back to visit? Some of you most likely can remember drinks at Cafe 210 or getting dinner after finals at The Corner Room. Maybe you proposed to your spouse at one of these places. Every bar and restaurant has a million stories and we would like to hear your stories.
