NIU Alumni 'Huskie Hour' at Bar Bianco (Phoenix)


Thursday, March 5

Join the NIU Alumni Association and fellow Phoenix-area alumni from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, for a 'Huskie Hour' event at both the historic Heritage Square Rosson House Museum and Bar Bianco.

NIU alumna and Heritage Square Executive Director Kari Carlisle, M.A. '93, will offer alumni a special private tour of the Museum, which is a fully-restored 1895 Queen Anne Victorian house museum, that interprets the history of Phoenix.

The museum is located at 113 N. Sixth St. and the tours will run from 5-5:45 p.m., before moving less than a block over to Bar Bianco (623 E. Adams St.) for the remainder of the evening.

Bar Bianco is a cozy wine bar next to Pizzeria Bianco, presenting global small plates and vinos in a historic home.

You can preregister for the event for $15 ($20 at the door), and this fee includes heavy hors d'oeuvres and one drink. You must be 21 or older to attend.
