First Friday Lunch at the Nassau Club - June 8, 2012


Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!

This month, we will be joined by Josue Sanz-Robinson, a graduate student in Electrical Engineering.  Josh is currently involved in a team project on developing flexible, large-area, electronic systems for monitoring civil infrastructure (e.g., bridges).  This article gives a general introduction to structural health monitoring.

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required.

>> Looking forward to seeing your orange and black! <<

Date: Friday, June 8th, 2012
Time: 12 noon - 2 pm
Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ
Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event.

The show:
A Nantucket house with a mysterious past. A pair of abandoned children. An 11 pound lobster.  Master playwright John Guare (
House of Blue LeavesSix Degrees of Separation) takes us on an epic and suspenseful ride in his newest play, a McCarter Theatre commission. Edmund Gowery is trapped and knows the only way to escape is to change his life—he just doesn’t know how. Guare spins a darkly comic and spine-tingling tale in what promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Check out the teaser
