When Bud Schwarzbach took a job managing his father's store in 1958, it was supposed to be a temporary position. More than 50 years on, he's still at it at Vin Chicago. The reason the business has endured so long may be that the Schwarzbachs and their colleagues don't just taste wine, but live it, tasting hundreds of wines each month, and assessing each one?s color, aroma, flavor, body, and finish. The result is a family business big enough to buy in volume, but small and passionate enough to carefully select every single wine that comes in. To back up their recommendations and prove they can count past the single digits, the team can tell customers each bottle's score on 100-point scales from Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate, or Vin Chicago's own in-house rating system.
Quality may be the most important factor the staff considers when they update their selection at stores in Chicago, Highland Park, Barrington, and Naperville. But that's not to say they ignore affordability. Case in point: each store stocks a selection of sub-$10 wines that have all earned scores above 90.
The Smart Race's formula is simple: the challenge of a scavenger hunt plus the thrill of a competition equals one fun day of citywide adventuring. Teams of two download the race's iPhone app, then head to one of the starting areas revealed on the day of the event. The app also marks the finish line with a red pin—the only question is how to get there. To navigate, participants puzzle over a series of knotty riddles, each pointing to a location in the city. They mark their maps with pins at each of the decoded spots, planning out their route before setting off on foot or by public transit. At each stop, an app-enabled challenge asks teams to perform such tasks as searching out hidden spots by compass or chase an invisible rabbit by onscreen radar. After completing every challenge, racers head to the finish line, located at a bar stocked with beverages and outlets to recharge both phones and users.
Most people don't associate lemon-pepper sauce with the need to chug down cooling drinks. But at Buffalo Wings & Rings, it's an option. That's because the chefs made the decision to separate their 11 signature wing sauces from heat levels. They do this by offering five separate heat sauces, ranging from mild to atomic, which can be blended into the wing sauce of choice for just the slightest kick or tear-worthy hotness. But this isn't the only way chefs can customize wings. They offer their signature dish in three styles, from the traditional bone-in wing to boneless wings and chicken tenders. With any of these options, chefs can fry the wings in a batter or grill them to create a healthier snack. For an extra kick, they can even smother wings in extra sauce. Finally, they serve wings with a choice of bleu cheese or ranch dressing, both of which take the edge off of spiciness.
