55th Pre-Reunion Dinner
When: May 12th, 2022 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm
Where: Tony C's Sports Bar & Grill, 699 Assembly Road, Somerville, MA 02145
We have scheduled an informal, casual pre-reunion dinner on May 12th, 2022 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill, in Somerville, MA. We have reserved a private room for the dinner. Tony C’s is named after Tony Conigliaro, a Boston kid, who broke in with the Red Sox as a teenager in the spring of 1964, our junior year at Harvard-Radcliffe. He was an immediate star and became a matinee idol in Boston at that time. He is the youngest American League player to hit 100 homeruns. When he became a star, he cut a record called “Playing the Field”, which was quite popular. We think Tony C’s is a perfect venue for our dinner since Conigliaro broke into major leagues while we were undergraduates. It is perfect reunion nostalgia.
We will have a simple menu consisting of Caesar salad, a choice of three entrees (orecchiette pasta with Italian sausage, broccoli, spinach, garlic and parmesan cheese; fresh, fried fish tacos with mango slaw, pico de gallo and chipotle aioli served with Cajun rice; or Chicken Conigliaro scallopini style with angel hair pasta in a lemon wine caper sauce) and dessert of a warm chocolate brownie. The cost will be approximately $52.00 per person, including tax and tip and room rental. Included with the meal will be soda, iced tea and American coffee. All other drinks will be done by cash bar.
The dinner will be a casual, informal and fun evening. We hope to play background music from the 50’s and 60’s. Classmates will be free to entertain us with music, a poem or any comments/observations/memories they wish to share.
There is plenty of parking near the restaurant and it is in walking distance of the La Quinta, where some classmates will be staying. It is only about 6 miles (a short cab ride) from the Eliot Hotel and the Harvard Club of Boston. It can also be reached by subway on the T.
