First Friday Lunch - February 2018

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.


Nicholas M. Risteen is a PhD candidate in the History and Theory of Architecture, conducting a research project on post-disaster reconstruction in Japan between 1923 and 1964 that focuses on Tokyo and its cycles of ruin and renewal after earthquake, war, and reinvention under the specter of emergency.  His dissertation is titled "After the Disaster: Architecture and Emergency in Extraordinary Time". 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**]
