Knoxville’s Zinck’s Night, maybe the first ever but definitely the first in 20 years! Come to a small down home joint and raise a pint in remembrance.

RSVP and questions to Stephanie Simmons at rowey0868@gmail.com.

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. Alumni will celebrate this uniquely Cornell event in more than 80 cities around the world.
