windy city wine.

as i mentioned in monday's post, i spent saturday afternoon & evening at the windy city wine festival in grant park with a group of fabulous girlfriends.  it was one of those picture-perfect chicago september days where you can't believe you ever question leaving this city (which usually happens around january/february of each year!).  i've lived here for six years and never knew this festival, situated around buckingham fountain, even existed until last friday (whoops!).  

if you go next fall, i recommend arriving in the afternoon or early evening - as the day went on the festival got more and more crowded, which turned into longer and longer lines for the tastings.  when we first got there, you could walk right up to almost every stand, which is just way more fun!
