Join us at the Smoke Daddy - Wicker Park, Derno's on Diversey, or A.J. Hudson’s for our football viewing parties. Viewing parties are open to all Penn State alumni and supporters! See below for details on each location. For every scheduled game, cheer on the Nittany Lions with fellow Penn State alumni and fans, and have the chance to win fun prizes, pick up some Penn State Chicago gear, and participate in the weekly 50/50 benefit raffle! The bars will be offering various drink and food specials, so pay attention to our social media posts!
