Follow Me on Friday, this Friday, March 2nd, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., as we taste some fine wine and celebrate the“Grand Re-Opening” of a great Rogers Park establishment: Rogers Park Fine Wine and Spirits, 6733 N. Clark (at Columbia).
Owner, Henry Younan, just completed the expansion of his business to an adjacent storefront and wants to mark the occasion with a sampling of over 100 fine wines in his extensive inventory.
Henry has owned the business since 1992. Over the years, he’s eliminated cheap wines and liquor from his inventory and now carries primarily fine wines, craft bears and quality spirits.
He’s developed a loyal customer base of neighborhood residents and people from other city neighborhoods and suburbs who purchase his products and rely on his extensive knowledge of wines and beers. The reviews of his business on Yelp.com, an online community dedicated to reviews of local businesses, are nearly all strongly positive. To read the reviews, click here.
In addition to the wine tasting, Henry will offer up a sampling of cheeses and his signature home-cooked meatballs! And throughout the event, Henry will give away raffle prizes of some of his fine wines! Don’t miss this fun evening as we celebrate Henry’s commitment to our neighborhood!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
