Bonnies road trip

I'm a VCU fan, and come January 12 I will be heading to beautiful Olean, NY to watch my Rams take on St. Bonaventure. To any Bonnies fans: is there a good (or serviceable) bar within walking distance to the Reilly Center that I can water myself at prior to the game? Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Bonnies road trip

The Skellar is a bar on the Bona campus which is probably your best bet. I assume it will be open an hour or two before the game, but I am not 100% sure.

A lot of students are coming back a day early for the game, so I assume the 'skellar should be open. Prices for drinks are good, and they have some food down there too like quesadillas and burgers.

The Rathskeller is located beneath the Hickey Dining hall and by Shay/Lo Hall. (Number 18 on the map)**

Plenty of good bars in Allegany and Olean proper. You can always grab one of Olean's two cabs.

I hope after the last three games that's still the case.

Re: Bonnies road trip

I think a lot of people just want to have a weekend to go out before the semester starts back up. If there was no game, some students would still come back early, but having a big game like VCU is giving students an added incentive to come back a day earlier.

Plus, it didn't hurt the Schmidt came into the Hickey the week before we left and was asking all students to come back a day early from their breaks.

We'll see if your definition of "beautiful" has changed after a visit to Olean. If you want to have some beers, not worry about driving, and get to the game right on time I'd suggest getting to SBU, parking, and going to the Rathskellar. Not sure where you hail from, but paying for 2 beers with a 5 dollar bill should be refreshing.

Are the kitchen hours still the same at the Burton?

Re: Bonnies road trip

I am originally from NYC, though I grew up in Richmond, and my dad's family is from central NY so it's definitely a part of the country I'm familiar with! Thanks for your help.
