Nostalgia was the name of the game when The Associate Board of NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) enjoyed an Evening of Arcading at Headquarters Beercade on Friday, February 21. Members and friends of The Associate Board competed in arcade classics like Donkey Kong, Frogger and Pac Man while enjoying light bites and cleverly crafted cocktails. In addition to unlimited gaming, guests had an opportunity to learn more about The Associate Board of NorthShore.
