The Wild Onion is one of the hot spots Cabrini students go to when they want to have a fun time. Great music, food and drink specials are all a college student is looking for and this place has all of that and more. Krista Stella, a senior psychology major, not only enjoys going there with her friends, she is also been an employee there for almost a year.

“It is a great environment for students who are looking to have a good time. We have some of the best bartenders, which helps make the bar a better place to work at. If you go to The Wild Onion ask for Scott the bartender and he will hook you up,” Stella said.

According to Wild Onion manager Roman Paik, there are many students from both Villanova and Cabrini who attend the bar frequently. “It seems as though Thursday nights are Cabrini nights and Friday nights are Villanova nights,” Paik said.

The Wild Onion has specials every night of the week. Monday kicks off the week with “Mug Night,” which allows a person to buy a 20 ouce mug for $3 and to refill it as many times as they desire for only $2. This deal does not include imported beers. Tuesday nights at The Wild Onion, consist of Trivia Night and Quizzo. From 8-11 p.m., they offer nachos for three cents and $1 tacos. From 10-12 p.m., frozen drinks, margaritas, and Corona’s can be purchased for $2 each. Burger specials are all day Wednesday’s and this deal includes a burger, french fries and a domestic beer for $5. DJ Voodoo bumps the jams on Thursday nights while $4 pitchers are offered. Quesidillas can be purchased with a two for one deal between 8-11 p.m. Fridays feature DJ Mo- Rock, while selling two for one wings. Domestic and well drinks are $2 each. The special on Saturday night is good for all the wing lovers. The special is $8.99 for an order of wings and a pitcher of Bud Light. $2 draft beers are also offered.

During the football season, The Wild Onion has every football game in the country available for customer viewing. On Sundays, they also offer $3 breakfast sandwiches between 12-3 p.m. Bud Light pints for $1.50 and 25 cent wings are sold all day, while $5 pitchers are offered at night from 10-12 p.m.

Brownies is another popular bar visited by many Cabrini students. Junior Robbie Cain enjoys going there on Wednesday nights along with classmate Rory Friel. Brownies features 50 cent draft beer and well drinks along with sink or swim until midnight.

“Brownies is a good place to go and listen to some good bands and just chill out with some friends. There is usually a bunch of Cabrini heads there,” Cain said.

Brownies is located in Ardmore and is about 10-15 minutes away. According to Friel the beer is not the only reason he attends Brownies. “They have the best looking girls bartending at Brownies and it makes going there a little more fun than other bars,” Friel said.

Maloney’s bar located in Bryn Mawr just off Lancaster Avenue has specials that include 75 cent Natural Light cans and well drinks on Monday nights. For entertainment, DJ Brian plays and Cabrini students have become quite fond of him. According to Tom Schneiders, Maloney’s in the place to be. “It is a great spot to hang out and it happens to be the only bar that I know of that you can bring a beer bong to,” Schneiders said.
