On average, the Kollege Klub (KK), located on Lake Street between State and Langdon streets, makes over 120 grilled cheeses every Friday afternoon between 4 and 6 pm.
Students of all ages race to the KK’s Friday After Class (FAC) for the $1 grilled cheeses and country music soundtrack. One UW student says she can’t get enough.
“I’m here almost every week, whether it’s with old friends, or I’m meeting new ones,” she says.
Bartender Hannah Blake says it hard for anyone to stay away with FAC’s two-for-one drink specials, perfect for any college student’s budget.
FAC also cater to students’ class schedules by opening the KK’s doors at 2:30 p.m. Starting the end-of-week celebration earlier draws in a diverse crowd, says Blake, who admits she’s often attending FAC when she’s not working.
UW senior Lindsay proudly said she’s never missed a FAC.
“Even when I’m sick I’m at the KK every Friday,” she says, “The grilled cheeses and cheap deals are too hard to pass up.”
Whether you’re there for the grilled cheese or cheap drinks, Friday After Class at the Kollege Klub is a great way to unwind after a long week of class.
