Maryland celebrates Zinck’s Night
The Cornell Club of Maryland invites all fellow alums in Maryland and around the world to celebrate the legacy and tradition of Theodore Zinck’s for one of the most anticipated Cornell events of the year!
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 “Zinck’s” closed in the mid-60s, celebrating the spirit of Zinck’s became a favorite Thursday night Collegetown tradition of undergraduates. It wasn’t long afterwards that Cornellians continued the tradition in their hometowns.
So come on out and celebrate this longstanding tradition of “Cornell Community” with your local community of Maryland alums!
