Hopefully, the hot, lazy days of summer are almost upon us so here are a few local places to visit with your spouse, friends or both!
Arlington Race Track offers an excellent opportunity to sample over 250 wines. Pair that with caterers like Spiaggia and you are guaranteed a wine tasting like no other. Tickets are ridiculously reasonable at $40 a person. How can you say no to that? This event is sponsored by Binny’s on Saturday, June 4.
Ravinia is another great option to check out over the summer. From the music to the concert goers amazing spreads complete with miniature tables and candles to go with their wine and cheese, this experience can easily become an annual tradition.
Morton Arboretum offers Wednesdays, Woods and Wine. I bet you are wondering if I got my idea for W.O.W. from them. Nope, but thanks for asking. 😉 This would be the perfect excuse to plan a date night midweek. Starting June 1 through August 31 from 5:30 to 8:00 you can listen to live music and enjoy some wine for $15 a person.
With so many festivals and events happening over the summer, there is literally something for everyone. Check out Eventbrite for a head swirling array of more ideas. Then, enjoy yourselves, get a little tipsy and tell me all about it.
