Yale Club Lunch


One of the most popular and enjoyable 1959 Class activities is our monthly Dutch treat lunch. You’ll find us in the Club’s Tap Room beginning at 12:30 on the second Friday of each month. We are often joined by spouses or children, and, as part of our affiliation with Calhoun College, one or two of its undergrads.

To date more than 100 ‘59ers have attended at least once. So please add your names to the list and drop by with your guests for good vittles camaraderie, and freewheeling informal conversation. If you are not a member of the Club, a Classmate will sign on your behalf, and you can reimburse him directly.

No reservations are necessary. Just let Ben Gertz ben@gertznyc.com (212-996-6299) know by the close of business the day prior to the lunch that you will be attending.

From time to time we convene in one of the Club’s private dining rooms where a classmate speaks on pertinent issues. For instance Winston Lord spoke on U.S.-Asian Foreign Policy, Essie Esselstyn, on environmental issues, and Richard Rhodes, on Mad Cow Disease, the topic of his then recently-published book. These lunches draw 40-60 so advance reservations with Ben are necessary.
