International Spirit of Zinck’s Night with Cornell Club of Tampa Bay
October 20 @ 7:30 pm
Be with us as we celebrate Cornell’s annual International Spirit of Zinck’s night at Butter’s Burgers in downtown Tampa on Thursday, October 20 at 8:00 p.m. There will be plenty of opportunities to catch up and network with local Cornell alumni. We’ll cap the night by raising a toast to Cornell…perhaps with a special cocktail or mocktail, or the beverage of your choice. Light appetizers will be provided, but you can certainly come early for dinner! Drinks will be available for purchase.
The history behind the International Spirit of Zinck’s Night Theodore Zinck was an Ithaca saloon owner whose pub, the Hotel Brunswick, was a popular haunt for Cornellians in the 1890s. When he died in 1903, a series of bars on and around Collegetown adopted his name over the years. The last one closed in the 1960s, and Cornellians started commemorating the spirit of Zinck’s Night by gathering at an establishment on a Thursday night, once a year. This tradition of undergraduates coming together to enjoy camaraderie and refreshments has grown into a gathering for Cornellians of all stripes everywhere.
