I want to thank all the brothers who were able to join us last night at the Library Bar and Grill in Dinkytown. We will plan on this every first Thursday of each month from 5 to 7PM moving forward. Once the weather gets nice in the spring we may bounce to Sally’s or somewhere that has a patio depending on the weather. Keep your eye on the event list to the right or our Facebook page where the bulk of our daily conversation takes place.
On April 13, 2013 the University of MN will celebrate our 121st anniversary on campus.
On Friday and Saturday, October 12th and 13th the U of M will Celebrate Homecoming. The entire weekend will be on a BYOB basis with N/A’s and mixers with ice provided. Any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. We will also be selling tickets for the Annual Scholarship Raffle and would be happy to sell you some chances to win via our online donation station. More info to follow regarding the prizes and ticket cost.
To kick the weekend off at 6PM on Friday the 12th we will welcome alumni with appetizers provided through Kevin Martinez (MN ’97) who now owns The Rack Bar and Grille in Burnsville www.therackbar.com He also mentioned bringing some servers to help out, it’s worth the trip and I’m sure you’ll thank me later.
The parade begins at 7PM down University traveling east from the corner of 15th and ends at TCF Bank Stadium. http://www.homecoming.umn.edu/parade/
Following the parade at about 8 – 8:30 we will have some entertainment provided by our one and only Hans Okerstrom (MN ’92) with his band High Octane. www.high-octane-mn.com These guys seriously rock the house and their playlist is sure to satisfy all ages!
Once that wraps up after 10PM the pizza ovens will be cranking out some snacks via Ryan Elsner (MN ’98) and his new venture with Chanticlear Pizza. They can also be purchased at Kowalski’s locations or go to www.chanticlearfrozenpizza.com for more information.
It’s OK if you can’t make it on Friday, we’ll be having the omelet chef back again starting around 8AM to cook for you. Custom, made to order omelets and basic breakfast beverages including orange juice and coffee to pregame. At 10:30 we’ll be doing the scholarship raffle drawings and have the game available to watch on the big screens if you don’t plan to buy tickets to the game.
It’s going to be a great weekend, now do yourself a favor and reach out to 5 of the guys you have not seen in a while and forward this on. Our active chapter has 34 members and 23 associate members, the time for Delta Chi MN to shine is clearly upon us and we appreciate your support.

I was just reminiscing my last dinner at 1601. It was August 11th, 2011 and we were celebrating Brother Zev Radziwill and my birthday. Brother John Vento offered to cook, and you know it’s going to be good when he gets going in the kitchen. I remember a fresh arugula salad with goat cheese and some soup to start things off. Maybe it was a tomato bisque? The main course was tenderloin with some fresh veggies and a great red wine to top it off.
The next dinner I’ll have is on October 7th, for founders day… may not be anything like what we had last year but I’m sure it will be a great time. I hope to see you there!
