Beat The Clock, But Not These Deals

Why aren’t we all getting Lucky(‘s) on Friday?

We make a lot of mistakes on Friday nights, but what about the mistakes we make on Friday days? Sure, blacking out at The O at 2 p.m. was cool, but what if I told you the next time you wonder, “Wait how did this happen?,” you won’t wake up the next morning with an empty bank account and an overdraft notice from your bank that you’ll be charged an additional $50 if the fee isn’t paid by this afternoon.

Well, it is possible if you just go to the other side of campus to Lucky’s.

That’s right—there are arcade games for the unsocial, large indoor AND outdoor seating for the unexpectingly sweaty and cornhole for anyone wanting to get back in touch with their old suburban dad in cargo shorts grilling in 60-degree weather roots. Oh, and the best part?

Fifty. Cent. Pitchers.


From 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. all pitchers of beer are only $.50 and it’s not only Natty. Of course, Natty will always be an option, but you can also get Bud Light, Budweiser and Michelob Ultra. Fifty cent pitchers is much cheaper than literally any deal on campus including the cost of merely entering some bars if you’re a dude.

Okay sure, that’s a great deal but how drunk can you get in one hour? Don’t answer that, but do know that pitchers go up only $1.00 every hour, so the end total of beat the clock comes out to a whopping $2.50 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

But if the only appeal to The O’s beat the clock is not wearing pants, guess what? You can do that at Lucky’s too!! When asked what the dress code is at Lucky’s for their version of Beat the Clock, cool-as-hell bartender, Zach Pogie said it is whatever people want it to be. In other words, chafe-on OSU, you’re doing great.

If you had the misfortune of scheduling classes sometime between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Fridays, you are not out of luck. Happy Hour at Lucky’s includes great deals as well, starting at 4:30 PM and going all the way until 9 PM. What deals, you say?

Start with $2 Fireball, $2 Buckeye Candy Shots, $2 wells and $3 shots and mixed drinks. When you’re drunk enough to enjoy beer, try a $3 import and craft, or for half the price, get a domestic beer at $1.50. Going on hump day to get a head start on the three day weekend? Lovely. Enjoy a $1 bomb, $5 loaded beers, $3 pina colada shots, $4 Jager barrels, $1 Budweiser, $3 Rhinegeist Franz and a $5 Irish Mule. Also Saturday power hour from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. if you’re into $1 drinks.

In other words, you’re either a huge nerd or not quite a borderline alcoholic yet (you’ll get there soon), if you aren’t at Lucky’s on Friday (or any other day). With all of the cheap deals, you’ll feel like there is still a pot of gold to be had at the end of your blacked-out rainbow.

Lucky’s Stout House is located on 1475 N. High St. where Beat the Clock begins at 2 p.m. Additionally, Lucky’s hosts Power Hour on non-home game days on Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. with $1 drinks.
