Welcome to Feb Club Emeritus!

Every year, Yale alumni and their friends gather around the world every night of February — in small groups and large, in cities, towns, hamlets and villages, on every continent. Why do we do it? Simple. Because it’s fun to get together. That’s it. There is no agenda. There is no plan. Feb Club is simply a way for Yalies the world over to get together. This approach has worked since the first worldwide Feb Club in 2008.

Since then, we have had more than 1,000 parties and have welcomed more than 30,000 guests all with one aim – to hang out with an amazing, diverse, vibrant, curious and fun group of people from all Yale College classes, all Yale graduate and professional schools and all walks of life. Feb Club Emeritus has only three rules: no speeches, no fundraising, it’s just a party. It’s that simple.

So, whether you are in Anchorage or Zanzibar, Beijing or New York, Quito or Los Angeles, or anywhere in between, we hope you can join us at a Feb Club Emeritus event. Check out our calendar. Odds are, there is a party near you. (And if there isn’t, fear not. It is easy to organize a party. Click here to learn how.)

Hope to see you at Feb Club Emeritus!
Happy February!

Cost: FREE (cash bar)
Don’t let the recent wave of summer weather fool you… there is more snow and cold coming our way. However, you can shake off those New Haven-esque winter chills in a way that brings together the very best of the Midwest and the East Coast. Nothing warms a wintry evening like hot Mexican food, delicious margaritas and the company of fellow Cincinnati Yalies!
The Cincinnati Yale Club invites you to gather in our private section at Cactus Pear in Clifton on Monday, February 26, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for Feb Club Emeritus, a casual, laid-back party for Yalies of ALL ages, shapes, and sizes. You don’t have to go as far as Park or Whalley to remember some of those amazing nights at Viva’s or El Amigo Felix. Located at 3215 Jefferson Ave, Cactus Pear — known for its warm atmosphere, delicious margaritas and Southwestern fare — is a must-visit in Clifton.
Attendance is free, but PLEASE RESPOND ASAP <https://goo.gl/wz9G3D> so we can make sure we have adequate space and food. We’ll get the appetizers if you cover your spirits (cash bar, but there will be a few communal beverages). There is no dress code, but attendees are encouraged to wear Yale gear or something blue. Just show up and ask the servers or bartenders for the Yale / Feb Club event so you will be directed to our private section, or look for the “Y” hats, sweatshirts and banners.
There is plenty of FREE parking in the lot adjacent to Cactus Pear or in the parking structure behind the building. There are also street meters on Jefferson Ave.\

Shanghai @ Le Bouchon
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Dear Yalies in Shanghai (and nearby),

Remember New Haven in February? Freezing rain, snow and slush, midterms, and if you were a responsible senior, nightly Feb Club parties with amazing friends to kindle light and truth when nature wouldn’t cooperate.

Years later, we’re far removed from New Haven. No more freezing… oh wait… same freezing rain, gloomy days in Shanghai; no more midterms, no more Yorkside pizzas, and sadly, no more Bright College Years. But we still have FEB CLUB!

On Feb 28, 2018, let’s kickstart the Year of the Dog with our very own Feb Club get-together. Join us in a celebration of friendship beyond New Haven!

Time: 7 pm onward, Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Location: Le Bouchon, 1455 Wuding West Rd. by Jiangsu Rd. (武定西路1455号,近江苏路)

Cover: 100RMB including 2 tickets for drink/snack (Advance via Yoopay link) 150RMB at the door.

Join Shanghai’s Yale community for a fun night of fine food, good company and of course, plenty of booze.

Feb Club Shanghai is our local edition of Feb Club Emeritus, a series of multi-generational parties every night from February 1-28, in cities, towns, and incorporated entities around the world where Yale alums, significant others, friends, relatives, and random party-crashers get together in a relaxed, informal setting just to have fun with a group of people who share something in common.  Now in its ninth year, Feb Club Emeritus has been a worldwide affair where thousands of alums from classes in the 1940s through the 2010s have gotten together in cities from Seattle to Shanghai, from Paris to Philadelphia.  Nothing formal, no fundraising, no speeches, just…. casual, laid-back parties hosted by random alums of all ages, shapes and sizes.

All Yalies and friends of Yalies are welcome.

RSVPs? Questions? Please email or WeChat Yelin Qiu, YC ‘12 (yelin.qiu@qq.com , WeChat: yelin_qiu) or Tim Shih, DC ‘03 (timothy.shih@gmail.com WeChat: TimothyShih)

Atlanta @ 5 Seasons Brewery
Feb 28 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Atlanta is one of the pioneering 29 cities to host a Feb Club event, and we were actually the first city to respond with a date 11 years ago, so in a sense we’re the inaugural city to plan an event! We’re also one of the few cities to give commemorative beer drinking glasses to all who come and pay for the party — a keepsake and collectible for many!

What can I expect at Feb Club?

A ridiculous good time, fantastic company, great beer, your own cool pint glass with logo, and tasty apps at 5 Seasons Brewing in Sandy Springs. But the best part… drum roll please… is the special Feb Club Mory’s Cup (flown in from New Haven!) with the same colorful mixes you know and love.

Feb Club 2015

Help us out by spreading the word and forwarding this email to your friends! There will be Yalies from all eras, all classes, so join us for some fun times — eating, drinking, reconnecting, and reliving the bright college years!

We look forward to seeing you all there! Here are the details one more time:
