My husband is originally from Chicago, which means we get to return to that Windy City quite often. This weekend we’re heading up to Chicago to take in our second showing of Spamalot with some friends. (We saw the original cast during the Chicago previews in 2004.) After the show, we’re having dinner at Bin 36. Bin 36 is an entertaining Chicago restaurant. It offers flights of wines, which is always a great idea, and has a fantastic wine selection. Each flight comes with information about each wine, which I find helpful and sorely lacking in most restaurants. Bin 36 also has a cheese bar that is incredible. There is nothing like a correlating flight of wine and cheese.
I’m sure we’ll have other food too, but beyond the wine and cheese, I tend to focus on dessert. I’ll take notes, as I so often do, and report back on our wine flights early next week. Have a great weekend!
