Wednesday News Commentary
State College bars have decided to cut off alcohol sales this Saturday for the State Patty's "holiday". The almost 40 downtown bars will only serve food that day in an effort to not promote the day of drinking. Each establishment will be paid a $5,000 compensation for cutting off the day's alcohol sales. Reporter Tatiana Flowers spoke with students around town and on campus to see what they thought about the recent decision.
