UNI Calendar of Events

Performing Arts, Music and Theatre

Friday, February 26, 2016 - 7:30 pm

Insomnia-prone, restlessly sleeping hippos; lumbering but surprisingly cuddly polar bears; clumsily waddling, overly competitive penguins; fancy-restaurant-patronizing anteaters; slithering snakes; lethargic frogs; frisky rabbits. Mask and dance theatre at its best, this magical menagerie of furry, feather, flying and fantastical critters will entertain those with even the shortest attention span. This imaginatively choreographed, sometimes synchronized, sometimes acrobatic and always wonderfully wacky show is the perfect entertainment for the whole family.

The New York Times calls ZooZoo “delightful,” and NY Theatre calls it “thrilling . . . hysterical . . . completely immersing.”

There is beer and then there is beer. There’s food and there is gourmet food. Each on its own a fantastic experience. But when paired together – mouth fireworks, sensory bliss, a culinary masterpiece! With over 100 varieties of beers, small plate samples from over forty area restaurants and a homebrew section to boot, your palate will thank you for attending Beers to You and Gourmet Too!

Great drink, great food and a great cause as every dollar earned supports Friends of Gallagher Bluedorn.
