It’s a bit sad to see the barren lot where Kildare’s used to stand. For a dozen years, that building was the official starting pub on the State College Santa Crawl.
As you can see in this 2010 video, it was a great spot to kick off the Crawl.
Sorry to see it close.
Rest assured that we are not going to let “progress” stand in the way of us all having fun though.
Primanti Bros has graciously agreed to step in and take over Kildare’s spot as the host of the “east-enders”. Primanti’s will be both the official east end start at 8 pm and will be hosting an earlier Santa Crawl Happy Hour.
Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for more info on the 2016 itinerary and Happy Hours.
