Winter is Time for Delicious Food and Fun: The Nittany Lion Inn and The Penn Stater have a Great Season Planned

Leave hibernation to the bears - not the Lions! You can turn basketball season into a winter getaway with the Slam Dunk Package at The Penn Stater – it includes overnight accommodations with a breakfast buffet for two, and two best-available game tickets to see the Penn State men’s or women’s basketball teams heat up the Bryce Jordan Center. There is even complimentary transportation to and from the BJC for your convenience. You can reserve your spot and choose a mens or women's game date by calling 814-863-5050.

The Penn Stater's buffets at The Gardens are legendary in Happy Valley, whether or not you are staying the night. Their Friday and Saturday evening America's Bounty Buffet features all-you-can-eat goodness with a rotating menu featuring chef-made selections like bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with pumpkin gnocchi in a maple veloute, potatoes au gratin with bleu cheese and poached salmon. Indulge in freshly-made desserts from the Penn State bakery and Creamery ice cream. It's a great deal for the whole family: kids from 6-12 can eat for half price, and children 5 and under eat for free!

At Legends at The Penn Stater, you can join a rewards program that you'll actually use. With the Burgers and Brews Club, any time that you buy 12 craft brews (AKA just another home game weekend), you will get one of their legendary burgers fixed any way you want ... for free! Their craft brew listing features local favorite Rusty Rails, PA microbrews like Victory Brewing Company, Erie Brewing Company and Lancaster Brewing Company and other selections from across the US. The burgers include the mouth-watering The Penn Stater Burger with a half pound of ground sirloin topped with cheddar and sautéed onions.

Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa Claus is coming to . . . The Nittany Lion Inn! Bring the family for Breakfast with Santa on December 3 and 10. Enjoy a delicious start to your day, and take home a complimentary photo with the star guest, Santa. Call 814-865-5890 for more information and reservations.
