Friday - "Somewhere"

Learn about ‘wink history in short bursts during our “105 years in 105 seconds” event, and witness the debut of our Virtual Choir video.

Welcome dinner and drinks at Bar Pizza. It’s like Pepe’s but without the long walk and the two-hour wait on a Friday night!

Rehearsals for each Spizzwink era and inter-generational songs led by esteemed Pitchpipes from across the ages.

Continue the festivities into the wee hours with songs in Dwight Chapel (the Woolsey Rotunda is closed for renovations) and a designated afterglow party.

Sunday - "No Regrets"

Rise fresh-faced and fancy-free to join our included continental breakfast, or sleep in and drag yourself to a hangover brunch at a restaurant of your choosing.
