East Carolina is LIT this week!
Sup Dogs in Downtown Greenville has just been named America’s Best College Bar in the “Barstool Best Bar” competition. Sup Dogs beat out 64 other bars around the country in the Twitter competition that was all fan voting.
Bret Oliverio, the owner of Sup Dogs, said Sup Dogs became a part of Barstool’s Best Bar bracket when East Carolina University’s Barstool account had a competition for the local bars in Greenville.
“It first started when ECU’s Barstool account did a tournament for local bars and clubs and students ended up voting us as the best bar in Greenville a few months ago,” Oliverio said.
After winning the competition last year, ECU’s Barstool felt Sups would be the best competitor to represent ECU in Barstool’s Best Bar competition, according to Patrick Pompilio, who co-runs the ECU Barstool social media accounts.
“It’s really cool that the ECU students and alumni have gotten behind us and placed their votes and I think that it’s amazing that we have beaten some big-time bars at universities that are way bigger than ECU. It’s really brought students and alumni together,” Oliverio said.
