Sponk started this petition to All Members of the UMass Community

The Spoke. One of UMass’s beloved downtown bars, ranked as one of the best in the country by Barstool Sports. For years, the Spoke has operated as the Disney World of the Amherst area, a place where magic happens and anything is possible. The twinkling lights, the pounding EDM, and the stale smell of beer, all brings back a sense of child-like wonder.

But the political-religious-socioeconomic climate in Amherst is changing. Kids grow up and change, and new generations move in. Just like how Disneyland removed their “Twilight Zone Tower of Terror” ride in 2017 to replace it with the new “Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout!” ride, Spoke must also adapt and evolve.

Sponk. Sleek. Thought-provoking. Daring. By rechristening the Spoke as Sponk, they’re letting the dreamers of Amherst know, “We have been, we are, and we will be. The future is now, and it is Sponk”. 

Now is the time to band together. We have been held down for too long, resisting our own evolution. Please join us in making this collective dream a reality and join the petition! #SPONK
