It’s a Follow Me on Friday “twofer” as we return to Jarvis Square this Friday, June 14th, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., to visit an old favorite and welcome a new addition to the neighborhood.
“Part One” of my Follow Me on Friday event will feature a complimentary wine tasting at Taste Wine and Food, 1506 W. Jarvis (pictured on the right). Sample a wonderful cross section of some of the finest red and white wines available in Chicago.
After your wine tasting, stroll two doors down to 1500 W. Jarvis, for “Part Two” of my Follow Me on Friday–a delectable homemade desert compliments of Towbar (pictured below), the newest edition to Jarvis Square.
Towbar just opened in May and already has taken the neighborhood by storm. It offers a great variety of salads, sandwiches, coffee, teas and pastries in a wonderfully intimate atmosphere. Enjoy your meal or coffee while gazing out of Towbar’s large picture window or take in the sun and cool lake breezes on their patio.
“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.
