Harrisburg, PA (RestaurantNews.com) - July 21, 2015 - Arooga’s, Central Pennsylvania’s favorite sports bar, is turning 7 on Saturday and is ready to party like a rock star all weekend long.
Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, the Harrisburg, Penn.-born-and-based award-winning full-service casual restaurant and bar, is set to celebrate its 7th anniversary beginning Friday, July 24 at its original Route 22 location by doing several things that you’d expect the from the region’s best sports bar: free beer fest, $.59 cent wings, $6 pitcher specials, a $500 cornhole tournament, great live music and DJ battle, sports on widescreens and a $250 wing-eating contest.
“It’s been a great seven years and our brand is just hitting its stride,” said Gary Huether, Jr., president and co-founder of Arooga’s. “It seems like just yesterday we celebrated our first anniversary, and to look over the past seven years and see how far we’ve come is truly awesome. We’re extremely proud of our Harrisburg roots and look forward to celebrating our big weekend with our fans and guests at our original Arooga’s on Route 22.”
