I really love the decorations at Vinology, especially this broken tree piece. I like the pieces of wood against a brick background, and I like how it descends over the stairs. If only I could decorate my apartment without worrying about dismantling or damaging the property!
We ordered a carafe of Riesling to share, and it was sweet and delicious! Sorry for the low quality of the photos; they were taken with the iPhone rather than the Rebel XTi. I’m really looking forward to exploring Vinology’s wine list, which was quite extensive!
Last time, we sat next to a party which ordered the cheese tray, and it looked so good we had to try it out! I love varied platters like this, though all the cheeses were a little too salty for my taste.
Dinner itself was savory, as always, but my favorite part was dessert! I ordered the “Castaway,” after reading about it on The Food and Wine Hedonist - basically, it’s frozen coconut dipped in chocolate and nuts, and it comes out looking like a coconut! It gets cracked with a chisel and a mallet right next to your table, which is really fun to watch. We also ordered a “dry ice milkshake,” which is whipped up also right next to your table. Delicious! Check out Vinology on Yelp or its official website!
Imagine the hectic week before college graduation: you have been slaving away for four years, whiplashed back and forth by the whims of professors, studying nonstop if not for class than for some test or another. Finally, you’re about to graduate. Here’s a shot of the line outside the Wrigleyville bar, The Cubby Bear, for Northwestern’s Last Lecture series.
I think we were more hungry than anything else, so we grabbed a few snacks while listening to the legendary Professor talk to us about growing up and becoming great. Then we left and went to watch “Tree of Life,” but that’s a story for another day.

These are snapshots I have from recent restaurant experiences. Full reviews will likely come around eventually!
Our favorite local ‘nice night out’ restaurant, The Stained Glass in Evanston (YELP).
And of course, roast duck at Sun Wah in Argyle, Chicago (YELP)!
