Come out and enjoy lesser known wonders in grand old Arlington Heights.

Afterwards, alumni, family & friends will gather at Peggy Kinnane’s, a popular Irish restaurant and pub. The owner, Derek Hanley will welcome you and speak briefly about his restaurant and his native town of Tipperary. He will answer any general questions about Ireland and Irish culture. A generous, specially-arranged, authentic and homemade Irish dinner will follow including one of seven entrees to choose from.
