Event Details

Location: Boca Raton, FL


You may be thousands of miles from Cornell, but on Thursday, October 18, you can feel just steps away from the hill by attending this year’s Spirit of Zinck’s event in Boca Raton.

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.  This year, alumni will celebrate this uniquely Cornell event in more than 90 cities around the world.  So wherever you are, remember your days at Cornell on October 18th.  Plan to celebrate Zinck’s Night with your Cornell friends.

Co-Hosted by the Cornell Club of Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton and the Cornell Club of Eastern Florida
