Politics and Power Brokers: Past and Present

Hotel Allegro

You are invited to an exclusive event in the historic Hotel Allegro, which for many decades was the unofficial seat of political power in Chicago. Join fellow alumni and friends for a fascinating afternoon beginning with a champagne reception and lunch in Hotel Allegro's famed Walnut Room, followed by a tour of City Hall. You'll learn about the rich history of the hotel where politicians made "back-room" deals.
