Rhi^2 Road Trip, Setpember 2008: State College!

By in Rhi^2 Road Trip

The second we returned to State College from NYC, we went straight to the bar for The Rocky Horror Show rehearsal. After an exhausting, non-stop week, it was time for home! I had work the next day, ugh…

State College

State College is a medium-sized town with a large university, in the middle of nowhere. But, with college towns come college bars (with college prices), and it was off to karaoke at the Saloon! There we purchased dangerously large and inexpensive drinks, called Monkey Boys and hit the stage.

We sang Wilson Phillip’s Hold On and were able to cut in line to sing Men at Work’s Down Under after drunkenly and adamantly telling the DJ that she was here from Australia and would never ever come back again. We stayed until the bar closed and then chatted up a friend until the wee hours of the night. I had work the next day too, UGH.

State College was relatively low key, and while we never made it to an Outback, we invited some boys out for some breasts and beer at Hooters (yes!), and coffee and dessert at Denny’s (depressing).

And really, can a foreigner visit the U.S.A. and NOT go to Wal-Mart? Of course not!! Mmmm, anything you want (including guns!), 24/7 and super cheap. I took her there to make fun of people, but she loved the low low prices and convenience. Hmm…

The layover in State College was brief, as we had leg 2 of the tour to go…Oh, Canada!
