Good news/bad news on Clem's barbecue: http://www.centredaily.com/2012/03/27/3142208/clems-bbq-closes-college-township.html
Jersey Shore is a little far to travel for tailgating barbecue unless you're traveling in from that direction, so hopefully they'll be back with an even better State College location.
Clem's BBQ has ceased operations in Centre County, according to owner Clem Pantalone.
Clem's had been operating out of Brewski's Bottle Shop at 1663 S. Atherton St., near the intersection of East Branch Road and South Atherton Street, but the take-out restaurant and caterer closed Tuesday.
"We basically outgrew the space allotted to us," Pantalone said. "We needed to close until we find a larger joint."
As a result of the closure, Clem's has suspended all its catering jobs, effective immediately.
In December, Pantalone closed his location at the Tipton exit of Interstate 99, at the intersection of Route 220 and McFarland Road. He still plans to open a roadside stand at 9747 U.S. Route 220 South, near Jersey Shore, by May.
Pantalone said he intends to reopen in or near State College as soon as possible, and has already looked at potential locations.
"I want to continue with it and I think there's still a future for it," he said. "I hope to be back open as soon as two weeks from now, but that's not a surety."
A representative from Hospitality Asset Management, which operates Brewski's, could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon."
