A February that never ends . . .

“It was the best of times, it was the best of times, it was the best of times…”

So spoke one Yale alumna, class of ’78, in reference to her Feb Club experiences.
Another alum merely remarked, “Memories of Feb Club? Isn’t that an oxymoron?” Feb Club is a longstanding campus tradition in which 28 parties are thrown for seniors to escape the misery of midterms and the cold. Legend has it that Feb Club originated in the ‘70s and ended sometime during the ‘90s, to then reappear in 2006. But now, Feb Club isn’t only for overwhelmed undergrads. In 2008, two members of the Class of ’87 came up with the idea for a “Feb Club for old people.” And so, Feb Club Emeritus (FCE) was born.

And this “Feb Club for old people” has gone global. On Thurs., Feb 28, there will be FCE parties in Munich, Dallas, Portland, Singapore, Kobe (Japan), Laramie, Rome, Aspen, Hong Kong, Lake Tahoe, South Salem, Norfolk, and New York.

FCE provides alums with a space to relive their brightest college month. This year, the kickoff party for the month of festivities took place at the Yale Club in New York City. The description of the event on the FCE website begins with the line “It’s Friday, Friday! Gotta get to the Club on First Feb Friday!” The blurb for the Boston party reminded its guests that “The location may be super classy, but we don’t have to be.” The Tokyo page boasts a number of Feb Club Emeritus records, including ‘Highest Number of Shots Per Person’—105 shots consumed by 23 people—accomplished on Feb. 26, 2008.

Some things people have been saying about Feb Club Emeritus

"Congratulations on hosting such a terrific event; I had an absolute blast. The surprising part to me was just how much it felt like a Yale party, and not just a get together at some club or bar. The best touch was the Feb Club cup...that detail alone brought back some serious nostalgia."  MB ‘91

A note a host received from a non-Yalie guest

A belated and more ‘formal’ thank you, after the brief ‘oral’ one last Sunday . . ., for such a sensational party.

It was a highly enjoyable night – a ‘proper’ party in fact, with great food, great company, fun music and plenty of booze on top. We had a great time, evidenced by the fact of being the last to leave….although that’s not necessarily a unique occurrence.

However, I should add that after the way I felt on Sat morning I wished I’d been at a Harvard Party, where I’d sipped ginger beer, had tea cakes and sat on the sofa discussing Proust all night – that way I wouldn’t have had to peel my dried tongue off the pillow and nurse a hangover half the day!

Thanks again and see you soon.

Cheers

Greetings from Antarctica

While we tried, we could never book a Feb Club party in Antarctica in 2008 (ed. note - we got one there in 2010 and 2011!).  Thankfully, some intrepid Yalies, including Biff Folberth ('66), were there and sent us all greetings . . .  note the penguins in the background.
