September 2013 Newsletter


Fellow DC Canes,

Welcome to September! With football season in full swing, September will be a busy month.  Please read on for the events we have coming up this month and beyond!

Football Watch Parties at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern!

Football season is now in full swing! Join us every for every televised Hurricanes Football game at Penn Quarter Sports Tavern (639 Indiana Avenue NW, located across the street from Archives Metro Station).  With several drink and food specials to satisfy your thirst and taste buds, come on out and relive the Canes game day experience!  Stay tuned to our Facebook page, Twitter and our website for updates every week on game times and any additional specials.

For the Florida game this Saturday, we will utilize the entire bar (upstairs, downstairs and outside).  PQST opens at 10:00am Saturday, so arrive early to get a seat!  As always, we will be doing raffles at halftime during each watch party to raise money for the Marty Pearl Memorial Scholarships, so come out for your chance to win some great Miami gear and support our book scholarships in the process.  We’ll see you at PQST!


Welcome to the Neighborhood Event, Thursday, September 12th

We invite you to join us on September 12th at our Welcome to the Neighborhood event!

Please attend and network with your fellow ‘Canes, learn about alumni club initiatives in your area, and talk with our alumni club leadership and Young Alumni Leadership Council about how you can get more involved in your neighborhood! We need your involvement, ideas and energy in your area to maximize the potential of our worldwide network of alumni.

We will have drink specials to include $3 domestic beers, $4 microbrews/imports, $5 rail drinks, and $6 house wines. There is are also $3 Coors Light/Banquet and $4 Blue Moons.
