Mrs. Redhawk and I will be in the Chicago Suburbs (Vernon Hills area) in June. Is there any interest in an offline June 17-20?

We'd love to see you again, but we are not going to be around or available for any of those dates. I'll check back if anything changes.

Sorry to miss you. Have a good time.
I should be able to make June 17 or 20 work. Not sure what is available restaurant-wise or BYOB-wise way up north there.

I bet Chez Wine Sparty has free corkage.

If something happens that Sunday I’d try to be available to meet up with the RedHawks.
Watching this. Overdue for a good offline. Tentatively the 17th would be best for me, but could probably make any of those nights work.

I could probably make my way out to the burbs for a bottle or two, depending on train availability and location.  I'm not available on the 17th, as I will be driving back from Detroit area that day, but I think I could make any of the other days work.

Adelle’s In WHeaton has  treated us well over the years and is free corkage on Tuesdays. Good stemware. It is literally steps from a Metra line. Sparty has been there. Not convenient from Vernon Hills though. Hoping some others chime in. With a pooch needing to be taken out after work, my location options are a bit limited. Hoping some folks closer to where you are staying (Otis?) chime in. 

Not seeing any replies from folks in the areas that Wine Sparty has never heard of. 

This happening may depend on if Mr. and Mrs. Redhawk think we are worth schlepping to the western suburbs, unless Sparty can find a closer locale for them to meet up at. I know that jcubed usually commutes via train and may be more flexible. 

Holy moly!  I just googled Wheaton to Vernon Hills and it says it’s over an hour away in light traffic.  Mrs. Redhawk is balking at that.  :-(

(do they have emojis in this new format?)

I don't blame her...that would be a crazy drive.

Bill - any idea of towns that would be a good middle ground between your area and Vernon Hills?  I could search on some BYOB places if there were a couple towns in mind.

Elmhurst comes to mind. It is close to I-294 and also has a Metra stop. Still a healthy drive from VH though.

Yeah, we might need Redhawk to give us his thoughts on how far he's willing to travel.  Looks like Elmhurst would still be about a 35-40 minute drive for him from VH.

I reached out to EB Wine, who lives there. He may know if something. They do have a but if a downtown. I can do some checking s well the next couple of evenings. Are we thinking. Tuesday?

Hey folks- check out Victory Meat and Seafood (small), Livia Italian Eatery and One Fifty One Kitchen and Bar as Elmhurst options. I’ll look into corkage and revert back. Hope I can join- it’s been far too long.
