The History of Zinck's Night
Theodore Zinck was a saloonkeeper in Ithaca in the 1890's. After he died in
1903, several bars kept his memory alive by using his name. When the last
Zinck's closed in the mid-1960s, undergraduates began celebrating the Spirit of
Zinck's on Thursday nights in Collegetown. Soon afterward, Cornell alumni
continued the tradition in their own hometowns. Today, there are more than 90
cities around the world keeping the Spirit of Zinck's alive by celebrating
together on October 17.
Do your part to keep the Spirit of Zinck's alive! Stop by after work, have a drink, see your old Cornell friends, and make some new friends, too.
