To RSVP, please click here

In a celebration of the three locations that have hosted Georgetown game watches here in The City this past season, we are hosting (hopefully) three game watches (with a twist) this week for the Big East Tournament as our Hoyas strive towards the championship. First, we'll be at our weekday downtown location, Bartlett Hall, on Thursday at 4pm to watch the Hoyas battle in the quarterfinals. Then, if we win, our plan was to be at Bus Stop Friday, but because of a private party, we'll be down the street at Bar None, where the owner of the Bus Stop is buying us $300 worth of drinks for the trouble! Finally, if we make it to Saturday night's championship game, we'll be in the front area of Lightning Tavern, to hopefully watch the Hoyas bring home a trophy! Great drink specials at all locations. We ask you to please RSVP if you're planning on coming to any of the game watches, so we'll have any idea of the crowd we'll have.

Do you remember John Carroll Weekend 2011 in San Francisco? Did you know that John Carroll Weekend is coming back to the West Coast, Los Angeles, in about a month, April 16-19? As a California Hoya, this means that the best of Georgetown is coming to you. This is expected to be the largest gathering EVER of Georgetown alumni west of the Mississippi!

John Carroll Weekend will feature a variety of events, including formal receptions, tours, tastings, and more. Please note that there is not an overall registration fee for John Carroll Weekend, but rather you can register for each event on an a la carte basis for your convenience (some are free, some have a cost). Consider coming for the whole weekend, staying for a day, or even joining for a single event.

With spring sale fares for flight between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, this is a perfect opportunity to experience the best of Southern California with Georgetown. There are several Beverly Hills hotels with which Georgetown has negotiated special rates for the weekend, including a hotel specifically for young alumni, the Sixty Beverly Hills. Please click here for hotel information, and act soon, reservation cut-offs are approaching!

Events are filling up and others are being added, so we invite you to check out the schedule and register at so that you can be part of this special Georgetown tradition.
