Select Local Merchants

  • Lincoln Park Stadium Bat 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.

  • Fox and Hound Group
    A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads. While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

  • R B I's
    R B I's serves tasty American-style cuisine. Cautious diners will appreciate the low-fat and gluten-free fare at R B I's. R B I's' fully stocked bar is a perk for patrons who enjoy a fine wine (or more) with their meal. R B I's is the place to be for a celebratory happy hour. Eat outdoors R B I's (weather permitting) with their beautiful patio seating. Score quick and easy seating for your large group at R B I's. Dance the night away — the restaurant offers plenty of space to get down. The restaurant tends to blast tunes over an already rambunctious crowd, so be ready for thunderous noise here. Folks tend to dress down at R B I's, so keep comfort in mind when heading to the restaurant. You can also grab your food to go. Catering services are also available. Don't spend time searching for parking — guests are welcome to use the adjoining lot. R B I's may cost you a little bit more than some spots, but this deliciousness is fairly-priced (and well worth the few extra bucks). Payment is simple and all major credit cards are accepted. You can stop by at almost any time, since R B I's offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier?dubbed The Duchess?illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.

  • Tasting Devine Cellar
    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.

  • Innovation Arts and Entertainment
    Since 1993, Cirque Dreams' family-friendly variety extravaganzas have called upon a cast of acrobats, strongmen, and daredevils to wring the oohs and aahs out of audiences with tremendous feats of derring-do. During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.
