Open Alley: The Wine & Chocolate Edition

The Norwegian, 1402 N Main Street, Rockford, IL 61103

Good news in the North End: our friend Liz Schaer (of the beautiful vintage shop Rooted) is now in the building at 1416 N Main Street for 3 months. Those of us who share the alley with her are planning monthly events to welcome her to the neighborhood.

Our first Open Alley will feature wine & chocolate. On Friday night, The West Side Show Room will be hosting a wine & chocolate tasting, featuring chocolates from Wonderland Sweets & wines from Heritage Wine Company. More surprises to announce soon.

Rooted & Winnie Nutter will be selling vintage wares available for you to purchase on Friday & Saturday (unless our staff buys everything first). Expect to find a little chocolate amidst the vintage treasures.

And down here at The Norwegian, we'll be hosting a Friday night concert w/ our dear friend Ernie Hendrickson. After the concert ends, stick around as we bring out our favorite wine, port, & chocolate desserts, or amble upstairs & shop the beautiful artwork in our artist lofts.

It's great to see our neighborhood grow. Thanks for eating, shopping, & supporting theatre, music, & art in the North End!
