Random alumni sighting!

Thanks to Raven for the suggestion before last night's hockey game that we check out Muldowney's Pub, around the corner from Trinity Brewpub, for drinks afterwards. It worked out well!

Not only did we get to hang out with the fellow alums we passed along the suggestion to, and not only did one of my fraternity brothers I hadn't seen in years turn up, but we were also joined by Peter McCue '73 Law '78, who randomly came into the bar after a friend's birthday party nearby, and spotted all our Cornell gear.

Would you believe he had his original Cornell photo ID card with him? :-) Peter chatted with us for a couple of hours before we all eventually scattered, most of the folks off to their homes in the region within an hour or so drive, and then Rich and me back to our hotel. But as we were leaving and Peter asked us to give his regards to Davy, remember him to Teefee Crane, and visit Zinck's for him, we were able to share the good news that a developer is building a new Hotel Ithaca downtown, and promises a Zinck's Pub.
