Suds At Assembly

The University of Illinois’ Assembly Hall will begin selling beer and wine during select shows geared toward adults as part of a pilot program to build revenue for the venue.

Alcohol will not be sold at events that draw mostly students, such as basketball games, officials said. Assembly Hall staff will report to the administration on the program’s progress later this spring.

The first test will be during Cirque du Soleil’s “Alegria” run March 17-21.
