The "Skeller" is the longest continually running bar in Pennsylvania and opened in 1933, just three days after prohibition was repealed. Spats Cafe celebrated 30 years of business this year and is a beloved restaurant downtown. A community effort is underway after it was revealed Monday that two State College staples were closing down. It was announced Monday that the All American Rathskeller and Spats Cafe & Speakeasy will be closing its doors after their leases were not renewed, according to the business owners. After the news broke that the Rathskeller which has been serving Penn State students and State College residents since 1933, will be closing, a petition has surfaced online. According to the petition on change.org David Cole started the petition to try to save the iconic businesses. As of 10 a.m. Tuesday, more than 4300 people signed the petition in less than 24 hours.
