For the Sports Fan

There’s nothing like college football. Or basketball. Or baseball. And the list goes on when it comes to the Penn Quakers.
No matter the season or sport(s) you follow, there is always something happening on Penn’s campus. Visit Penn Athletics to check current schedules by sport or season—and then plan a visit to watch the Quakers as they battle their latest rivals. And don’t forget to grab a bite to eat while you’re at it. Go Penn!

If you’re in it for the finger foods and looking for a place to convene with friends pre- or post-game, Bernie’s Restaurant and Bar makes for a good bet. Enjoy a drink special, shoot a game of pool, and sample the latest crop of specials to come out of the kitchen. (Think well-executed flat breads, nachos, sliders, tacos, and more.) Too late for traditional happy hour? Enjoy reverse happy hour every Sunday through Wednesday from 7-9pm.

In the winter…

With basketball season in full swing, you’ll want to catch a game at The Palestra, home of Penn’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams—and one of the most storied gymnasiums in the history of collegiate athletics. Penn Men’s Wrestling also calls the Palestra home in colder months, and Women’s Volleyball plays there in the spring.

In the spring...

The weather is getting warmer and the days are starting to feel a little longer. That must mean it’s time to take me out to the ball game—it’s baseball season! Get outside, enjoy a picnic lunch, and grab a seat in the stands to watch the Men’s Baseball team hit it out of the park at Meiklejohn Stadium, just southeast of campus at 3331 River Fields Drive. Penn’s Women’s Softball team plays nearby at Penn Park, the same place where you might catch the Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse teams practicing before a big game at Franklin Field. Spring is a busy time for Penn Athletics, and there is always something happening at Penn Park!

In the fall…

Fall is a sports fan’s paradise. With Penn football, soccer, and field hockey kicking off in the fall, there is no shortage of game-watching activities. We recommend taking in a football game at Franklin Field, where Quaker fans are known to throw toast on the field between the third and fourth quarter of every home football game. Called the “Toast Toss,” it’s been a tradition for decades.

Of course no game would be complete without the right snacks! Brysi Café, located right by the entrance of Franklin Field, is a great place to grab a quick sandwich, smoothie, or protein bar before heading in to (or out of) the action.
