Theodore Zinck was a saloonkeeper in Ithaca and his pub, the Hotel Brunswick, was a popular gathering place for Cornellians in the 1890s. After his death in 1903, several bars using his name continued to provide a haven for students. When the last â€œZinckâ€™sâ€ closed in the mid-60s, celebrating the spirit of Zinckâ€™s became a favorite Thursday night Collegetown tradition of undergraduates. It wasnâ€™t long afterwards that Cornellians continued the tradition in their hometowns.
