The Ithaca Heritage Tasting and Cocktail Tour is proudly supported by:
The Ithaca Hotel once anchored the southwest corner of State Street and Aurora Street. Built in 1872, the brick building housed the Dutch Kitchen, where generations of students carved their initials into the wooden tables and walls. The hotel was torn down in the 1960s during the era of urban renewal. Just south of the hotel, the final incarnation of the famed Zinck's Bar served a mixed clientele of Cornellians and townies alike in the 1960s. Today the Marriott Ithaca Downtown Commons and its Monks on the Commons carries on this long heritage of hospitality and conviviality at the vibrant site. Register for the Tasting & Cocktail tour and receive a special day-of-event discount at Monks on the Commons. Monks will offer a specialty drink menu themed around Ithaca's storied history.
