Introducing Business & BBQ!

Business & BBQ

Syracuse University alumni and friends in Chicago have a tasty new reason to gather each month. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, a beloved Syracuse establishment, opened a location in the Lincoln Park neighborhood last spring that’s become a popular spot for SU’s Alumni Club of Chicago.

The new club leaders, Shana Segbers ’12, G’13 and Amy Peters ’05, have started hosting a monthly networking event called Business & BBQ on the first Thursday of each month. The first informal gathering was held in August, and it’s become a chance for Syracuse alumni and friends to enjoy food and drink specials while they connect, share club news, and swap stories from their SU days. The restaurant draws Orange fans for game-watching events too.

“The ‘Dino’ evokes a feeling of nostalgia for many alumni, and that really complements our goal of bringing our Orange community together on a regular basis,” Peters says.
