The Cornell Club of Washington invites all fellow alumni in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland to celebrate the legacy and tradition of Theodore Zinck's at Dacha Beer Garden (Shaw)

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.

Come join us in DC!
