The Triangle show visits Chicago approximately every three years and did not come this year as the troupe pleased the Princeton crowd in Chicago in December of 2005 with Excess Hollywood. The Club looks forward to hosting the next Triangle show in December 2008.
Young Alumni Committee
Chair – Elizabeth Balthrop '01
The Young Alumni Committee completed another full year of events and activities for Princeton classmates from the past ten years. Diverse opportunities, along with our collaboration with several other Ivy League young alumni groups, attracted participation from a wide variety of young Chicago-area Tigers. Activities included:
Wine Tasting at Kafka – An evening of wine and fun
Annual Summer Beer-Garden Tour – Young alums took advantage of various warm weather evenings during the summer to take in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages in bars, pubs, taverns, and saloons throughout the city. The Beer-Garden Tour remains one of the most popular young alum adventures
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" at Chicago History Museum - One of Chicago's outdoor summer movie nights
"Jersey Boys" at LaSalle Bank Theatre – Seeing one of Chicago's hottest musicals plus a reception with the show's leads, including Frankie Valli, played by Triangle alum and former member of the Class of 2003, Jarrod Spector
Karaoke at Trader Todd’s - An evening of music and fun
These events provided young alums with opportunities to mix and mingle, and excuses to take in some city attractions that they might otherwise never see. Participants ranged from new graduates just settling in Chicago to veterans who have been young alums for years. All are encouraged to join us next year in planning and attending some of the Princeton Club of Chicago's coolest events.
