UC Berkeley closes Bear's Lair campus pub

UC Berkeley closes Bear's Lair campus pub
UC Berkeley has closed its on-campus pub, where generations of undergraduates had their drinks or whiled away sunny afternoons on the patio with a pitcher of beer. The university is chipping in $99 million, and students are paying the rest after voting to tax themselves in 2010. Student Union Building, which houses the Bear's Lair, will be mostly gutted and rebuilt at twice the size; the Cesar Chavez Student Center will be remodeled; and the plaza itself will be repaved. The campus is already a veritable zoo of bear statues, but students plan to install a very big bear statue in the new Lower Sproul, in addition to the elevated bear statue already there. [...] not likely to reappear: the oar signed by the Cal crew team; the 300 beer mugs hanging from the ceiling, each with its own storied lineage as seniors handed them down to underclassmen; or the bar stool reserved for Oski, the school mascot. Doctoral student Funie Hsu said she's happy to see the upgrades, but hopes the new student-union facility won't be filled with chain stores.
