The Lush Ribs and Zin Dinner

While some may like to pair their pig with Pinot, Lush does it up BIG with the bold, ripe flavor of Zinfandel to match the spice and depth of their signature ribs. We are regular attendees at this annual event because we don’t leave hungry and don’t leave less than a little tipsy. Price: $50 (includes meal with sides and pairings) Lush Wine & Spirits (University Village), 1257 South Halsted, Chicago, IL 60607 312-738-1900

A favorite pick from Nightwood's Fete de Rosé wine list.

Nightwood’s Half Priced Wine Mondays and Fete de Rosé

We are head over heals for Nightwood, especially their attention to the details. Their wine menu is filled with boutique and small production wine that perfectly pair with the seasonal menu of the day. You can’t go wrong with their Fete de Rosé wine list available by the glass or bottle. Sample a variety on half price wine night to open you mind and palate to the power of pink. Nightwood, 2119 S.
