With crispy flatbreads, bocce ball, and a new student discount, Casey’s Pizza and Subs’ new bar patio expansion proves to be a hit with customers, but not a hit on their wallets.

In July, Casey’s opened it’s widely anticipated bar expansion to the public; the space being themed after Key West makes for a relaxing dining experience.

“Half way through construction the theme of the bar started to take its own shape… by putting seashells and colored lights in there, it made the theme come alive, the Key West feel,” said Casey Harris, owner of Casey’s Pizza and Subs.

The bar also features an interesting sight in the Blue Water area, two bocce ball courts that were placed next to the patio for patrons to use after a meal or while enjoying drinks.

“Bocce ball is a good way for groups of people to interact and do something after they eat,” said Harris.

Along with the new expansion and bocce courts, Casey’s is offering a discount this fall for SC4 students who show their Skippers OneCard at time of purchase. The discount is 15 percent off any food purchase for the remainder of the fall semester.

Students may consider using the discount on recently added menu items; this includes table side guacamole, which is made to order right beside your seat, as well as pizza flatbreads that can be ordered with any pizza topping.

Along with new food items, Casey’s has added two new drink specials to the menu for the month of October. Being huge supporters of breast cancer awareness and research, Casey and his wife Carrie decided to add special “pink” mixed drinks to the menu through October.

“We are donating one dollar back from purchase of every pink drink to help fund breast cancer research; we have one drink called the Pink Floyd and one called the Pink Ribbon Martini,” said Harris.

Customers are so far very supportive of the new drinks.

“I’ve always loved Casey’s food, and yeah, I’ll try a pink drink to support Breast Cancer Research,” said Robert Murch, a Casey’s Pizza customer.

After an expansion, new menu items, a generous student discount and charitable donations on select drinks, the only reason to not visit Casey’s Pizza and Subs is if you have class.
