Wauwatosa, WI (August 23, 2016) Back by popular demand, Echelon MKE presents the 2nd Dinner in the Alley of the summer, giving you an opportunity to experience one of the most unique events ever to hit the streets… or alleyways in Milwaukee. Enjoy an outdoor dinner and live music underneath the twinkle lights in one of Milwaukee’s most picturesque alleyways, Black Cat Alley, located at 2122 North Prospect Ave. Kick back, relax and have fun with 100 of your closest friends as we create an evening you won’t forget.

If dinner isn’t an option, please join us for a post party, featuring great live music, cold drinks and incredible company. A live band will play until 11:30 pm. Red Light Ramen will have a food truck available for guests to purchase late night snacks.

The alley will be lit up in red, so please dress your part and wear a piece of red clothing to help support The Salvation Army.

100% of the proceeds will support the Emergency Lodge, The Salvation Army’s homeless shelter and programs, thanks to a generous contribution from Thrivent Financial.
