One of my favorite things about winter is going on road trips to attend Penn Men’s Basketball away games. This past weekend we braved the after-effects of Winter Storm Nemo and drove up to Harvard and Dartmouth to support the Quakers. While the two gyms were underwhelming (no one in the Ivy League can begin to compete with The Palestra), it was an amazing weekend full of basketball and quality time with fellow Penn alumni.

Day 1: Penn vs. Harvard
: Walking along the (frozen) Charles River to meet fellow Penn alumni in Harvard Square for a pre-game reception hosted by Penn Athletics.
So much snow! Harvard Square in the distance.

Day 2: Penn vs. Dartmouth
Cute shops and restaurants on Main Street, Hanover.
Molly’s Restaurant and Bar on Main Street rocked the Ivy League décor. Go Penn!

It’s game time at Dartmouth. Go Quakers!
The team battled through to the end to beat Dartmouth 67-57.
