[07/23/18]   Good Afternoon everyone, Chyers here, I wanted to come on here and let everyone know that after 7 years of full-time employment here at the bar I will be stepping down as full-time manager of the bar to pursue my next venture in life working full time for Penn State. It has been a pleasure to meet all the awesome people I have met and worked with over the years. Big thanks as well to the bar's owners Sean and Tien Kelly for giving me this opportunity for the past years as well. I take pride in myself and my staff over the years who have helped transform the bar into what we all love today. I will continue to book music for the bar but will be limited to doing that on Monday afternoons. Therefore all the musical acts that I assist in booking dates for the bar will have to be understanding that Mondays will be the day that I answer messages and do the bookings. I will also try and continue to work here at least one night a week, you can't get rid of me that easily. My last shifts here full-time will be the first week of August. Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone for their patronage and support. Much Love. Thank you all ❤
