Alumni at Cap and Gown

Happy Birthday Cap, Cap, Cap, Cap and Gown!

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Cap and Gown celebrated the club’s 125th anniversary with a party of over 500 members, alumni and friends!We rocked around the clock in spite of a rainy day. Dennis Normile and the kitchen staff kept us well-nourished from brunch before the game, sliders at half-time, a barbeque after the game, and pizzas at 10pm for energy for the late-night crowd.Princeton played Harvard that afternoon and it was a heartbreaking loss in overtime. The rain gave us a chance to see how great it is to watch the game up on the "big screen” from the comfort of the new Class of ’73 Dining Room. This is clearly the beginning of a new Cap tradition.The Blaire Reinhard Band played non-stop from 5 until 11, and everyone shared the sentiments of Drew Weyerhaeuser ’05 who couldn’t stop saying, "This is the best band ever.”  Band member Gray Reinhard ’04 is also a member of Cap, so it’s always great to have them back "home.”We had some special announcements for this momentous occasion and captured then on video for all of you who couldn’t be there on the day, or who were down in the tap room instead!
