ΑΤΩ Beta Theta 2020 Mid-Winter Dinner

Saturday, February 22, 2020

6:30-10:00 p.m.


The Mid-Winter Dinner is back! In New York City, that is, because this fine tradition has been a February calendar staple every year since its revival in 2017. After an extraordinary and well-attended event in Washington, D.C., last year, the dinner rotates back to its roots in Fun City.

Like last year, the 2020 dinner will take place at an ΑΤΩ-owned and ΑΤΩ-operated establishment. Steve Kay ’94 has volunteered Mel’s Burger Bar (melsburgerbar.com) at 2850 Broadway (between 110th and 111th streets) as this year’s venue.

There are two MBBs in NYC, so either show up at the right one, or prepare for merciless ragging!

Last year’s dinner in D.C. drew brothers from the late ’60s to the early ’90s. Conspicuously absent were representatives from the early to mid ’70s. I happen to know there is a good cluster of them in the Boston area, and there must be some in NY/NJ. Getting from Boston to NY for a weekend - how hard can that be?

Now that I think about it, Boston would be a fine destination for the 2021 dinner!
