Wherever you go, there you are, and so is Feb Club. We are having our very first Virtual Feb Club Party, on February 28. Have lunch with your old roommate, have a drink with a Yale friend, meet other Yalies for coffee, whatever works for you . . . and then post a picture of your alumni get together on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook along with the #febclub tag and we will all get a piece of the Feb Club magic, no matter where we are.

The Ministry of Feb Club
We are adding dates, making announcements and trying to get the word out about Feb Club Emeritus using Twitter (@febclub), Facebook and, now, Rebel Mouse. Click here to follow us. Here is a summary of what people are saying on social media:
Words spoken by a Feb Club attendee that pretty much say it all. What is Feb Club Emeritus? Nothing complicated. Simply 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 who answer the question "what college were you in?" with "business" get together in a relaxed, informal setting just to have fun with a group of people who share something in common. Now in its seventh year, Feb Club Emeritus 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 have been worldwide affairs where thousands of alums from the classes of 1941 through 2012 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.
"This gives me hope that when I'm old, I can still be cool"
Flip through The 2009 and 2008 Parties page to see pictures and stories from the first two years of Feb Club Emeritus. (There were too many parties after that and posting the pictures became too Herculean an endeavor). Parties have been large (1100+ people in NYC) and small (5 people in Johannesburg). Every host put his or her stamp on their parties - some were sophisticated and demure; others were energetic and unrestrained. Yet others were both, depending on the point in the evening. From New York's two-location bash, to LA's swank Beverly Hills hotel, to DC's Mardi Gras party, these get- togethers spanned the spectrum, the generations and the globe. Even more photos can be found on the Feb Club for Old People group on Facebook page (a Yale e-mail is needed to join), and the story behind this whole concept can be found on our History page.
Mory's Cups have become a key focal point of the Feb Club tradition - in 2008, a specially commissioned Mory's Cup featuring the Feb Club Emeritus logo and the list of the inaugural cities criss-crossed the country to over a dozen Feb Club parties, and it became such an integral part of the events that in 2009, 2010 2011, and 2012 no less than six Mory's Cups traveled the globe from Kabul to California pouring red, gold, purple, velvet and other concoctions for the assembled alums.
So, browse the site and enjoy scenes from the ghosts of Feb Club past. In the meantime, to remember Feb Club year-round, check out the alum-designed shirts, hats, mugs and Yale-themed beer labels on the Feb Club Gear page, and catch up on your sleep to get ready for Feb Club 2013!
