For those members confused about where the official Penn State Colorado football watch location in Denver is, or why we made a change, let us clear the air. As a chapter, we are committed both to our members, and to the university that we all love. PSU Colorado switched to Jakes Food & Spirits, this year, because we didn't feel that the best interests of either were being served at our previous ...location. This was not a personal decision; it was the decision that most benefited our Penn State chapter, the greater majority of our members, and future students. We know that several people have been upset by this change, and we apologize for any inconvenience. We had very specific reasons for making this decision, and it's the right change for Penn State Colorado. If you'd like to ask further questions, or make a comment about your football viewing preferences, please share - but please do so respectfully. As for Jake's, in addition to increased service, free parking, and a more open atmosphere, Jake's has honored its promise to donate 10% of all sales to our Penn State Scholarship fund - every game. Every time a Penn Stater watches football at Jake's, part of their bill is used so a student can go to PSU. That's pretty cool. They're also only about a mile from downtown. Help us support the chapter, and the university, by giving Jake's a chance.
I went to Pat's for the UCF game and there was still a healthy crowd and they had the same setup, game on every TV , etc etc. Not sure if that is still the case now or not.
Downtown was pretty convenient for public transport; not so much for parking. This place isn't exactly in the nicest part of town. Though for this weekend at least it'd be nice to get away from the clowns upstairs.
For the Big10 Championship game, the northern NJ chapter of the PSU Alumni Association hosted the game at Vanderbilt's a really nice hotel bar/restaurant in Florham Park, NJ. Hopefully they go back there because that place was really nice. Good food, plenty of seating, the wait staff and management were attentive, and plenty of TV's.
