Kicking off the 2014 Football Season, the Right Way
PSU Atlanta Chapter Members,
The 2013 football season has concluded and our beloved Nittanyt Lions once again provided us with a winning season.  Congratulations to the team and all the coaches.  We can now focus on beginning to make plans for the 2014 football season, because it can't come fast enough!!!
In about 250 days the Lions kick off the 2014 season in Dublin, Ireland.  That's right, the Lions are headed across the pond to take on the University of Central Florida Knights in the Croke Park Classic.  This is truly a once in a lifetime event and the Penn State Atlanta Chapter wants to do all that we can to make it a special event for all.
We are pleased to announce that on January 13th, 2014 at 7:00 pm we will be hosting a guest speaker at Fado in Buckhead.  The guest speaker is Paul Gleeson, the Irish Consultant, for the south region of the United States.  Mr. Gleeson is delighted to share all things Irish with us, so that anyone going to the game or just those that are curious about the Irish culture, can take away valuable information.
As an added bonus, Judith McLoughlin, author of The Shamrock and the Peach Cookbook, and Irish tour guide will be on hand to speak about possible tours and more Irish culture.  Judith frequently conducts culinary tours thoughout Ireland.  She will be on hand to answer any questions we may have and if enough interest is generated, possibly even organize a trip.

So here are the details to this great event:
  • WHEN: January 13th, 2014 7:00pm
  • WHERE: Fado, 273 Buckhead Ave NE, Atlanta, GA  30305
  • PARKING: There is a $5.00 valet, street parking and numberous garages located around Fado
  • TICKETS: They are Free!!!  But we do ask that you register by 1/8/2014 for the event.  There is a registration link here for tickets.  This will help us track attendance and make sure the room is setup correctly so that everyone has a good time.
This is sure to be a wonderful event.  Mr. Gleeson is sure to delight with the information he has planned to share.  Please make sure to complete your registration here by 1/8/2014.
