Select Local Merchants

  • Lincoln Park Stadium Bar and Grill
    We are delighted, thrilled, and entranced! Three local residents and friends have teamed up to bring the thirsty, hungry hordes (all of US!) a new and lovely place to enjoy upscale bar food and delectable libations. Affable and clever Florian Miranzadeh partnered with longtime friend Sean Tehrani, owner of the ever-lovely Basil Leaf Cafe on Clark Street, to dream up the concept, then brought in Justin Roof, talented and classically-trained chef, to manage the kitchen and bar. The fresh, fabulous result? LP Stadium! Lincoln Park Stadium Bar & Grill, cheerfully dubbed simply LP Stadium! The name hints at what you'll glimpse inside: wide screen televisions throughout so patrons can view sports in an almost panoramic fashion. But don't worry, fellow sports fans, you won't find the typical rowdy barely-old-enough-to-drink backwards-baseball-cap-toting fraternity-letter-clad beer-spewing crowd here who's mutinous roars drown out conversation; rather, it's a more sophisticated clientele. Picture a more epicurean patron who enjoys Gastro-Pub fare; someone who appreciates food elevated to the likes of house-made tomato basil soup, freshly-prepared fish tacos, succulent and juicy short ribs on cheesy grits, and dare we say almost elegant yet hearty salads (roasted salmon and roasted artichoke, anyone?). Naturally, you'll also find old-school favorites like generously-portioned French fries, piping hot and freshly prepared, or classic standards like chicken wings and meat-lovers' pizzas loaded with carnivores' favorite toppings. Libations? Well, you'll find plenty of brews, of course, including the popular monthly Mystery Beer, on tap for $3. (Think YOU can recognize it?) You'll also find a surprisingly deep selection of wines and craft cocktails that comprise potent concoction perfection. Sure, order your favorite whiskey, neat, or branch out and have the friendly bartenders shake up that richly complex, utterly indulgent chocolate martini you've been craving. The ambiance? It's everything you'd want an upscale sports bar to be, so in addition to all those television screens, you'll find a Game Time & Video Gamer's Den covered with leather sofa seating for maximum comfort. The staff at LP Stadium likes to keep things fresh, so there are plenty of events and gatherings afoot. Examples? A Bourbon-tasting is in the works for you connoisseurs, and you'll find something new and exciting every weekend, whether it's a bowling tournament or a Polar Plunge party.

  • Tasting deVine Cellars
    With its massive selection of varietals and styles, Lynfred Winery seems determined to make something for almost any wine drinker. The cellar brims with everything from bold, spicy reds to crisp and refreshing whites, as well as fruit wines made from apples, cherries, rhubarb, and pears. The grapes arrive from vineyards throughout California and Washington state, although the rest of the fruit typically comes from a bit closer to home, including growers throughout Michigan and Wisconsin. Despite this variety, the staff's commitment to approachable, fruit-forward flavors characterizes virtually everything that the winery makes. This dedication to easy drinking seems only natural given the winery's origins in a home basement. In 1975, Fred Koehler, along with his wife Lynn, decided to try to re-create the family wines his father and grandfather had made throughout the 1920s. The batches grew larger with each passing vintage, and, in 1979, Fred and Lynn chose to upgrade their homespun hobby into a commercial venture. Within six years, Lynfred Winery's creations began to appear in the national spotlight as they garnered awards and medals from wine competitions across the country. This attention allowed Fred to swell production even more, eventually expanding to a larger location in 1990. Fred and Lynn's legacy continues to inspire the staff as they operate a facility that creates more than 100,000 gallons of wine each year using as many as 80 varietals. These wines appear on restaurant menus, on retail shelves, and inside fish tanks throughout the Chicagoland area.
