Provost Patrick Phillips, Absinthe, and Holiday Shopping at the Faculty Club

Dear Colleagues,

The Faculty Club is open during the usual hours this week (Wednesday and Thursday from 5:00 to 8:00).

Wednesday, Provost Patrick Phillips will be on hand to chat informally with faculty and to deliver the Six-o-Clock Toast.  If you’ve known him for years, it’ll be a fine time to check in and see how he’s doing…. and if you’ve not met him yet, it’s a great opportunity to see “what makes him tick.”

Also on Wednesday, the JSMA museum shop, just a few yards from our Faculty Club room, has offered a 10% discount on books, jewelry and all the other things they sell.  Why not get a jump on holiday shopping while hob-nobbing with your colleagues?

Thursday evening we have our last gathering of 2019 (we’ll close for break and re-open in week two of the Winter Term).  The bartenders have devised a special seasonal cocktail to close out the fall; called the “Foggy John,” it’s a delectable mix of absinthe, gin, Cointreau and tonic.  So whether you’re curious about absinthe, aka “the green fairy,” or just resolved to get down to Faculty Club before the year’s over, please join us!

Yours, James Harper

Chair of the Faculty Club Board
