Did you know?  Theodore Zinck was an Ithaca saloon owner whose pub, the Hotel Brunswick, was a popular hangout for Cornellians in the 1890s.  When he died in 1903, a series of bars in and around Collegetown adopted his name.  Even though the last bar closed in the 1960s, Cornellians began commemorating the spirit of Zinck’s Night by gathering on a Thursday night, once a year.  This tradition of coming together to enjoy camaraderie and refreshments has grown into a gathering for Cornellians everywhere.
