Maybe you're looking for a fun post-Valentine's Day activity to do with your significant other. Or perhaps you want to have a "girls' day out." Or maybe you just want to check out all that Libertyville has to offer.
No matter the reason, MainStreet Libertyville's annual "Let's Wine About Winter" wine walk seems like the place to be.
The wine stroll, which drew about 1,200 people last year, is slated for 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 16 throughout downtown Libertyville. For just $25, participants will receive a glass, a map of where to sample various wines and a $10 merchant coupon that can be used on a return visit.
Registration in advance is not required; participants need only stop at one of the five distribution sites the day of the event to pay the $25 fee, get a wristband, and receive a glass and map, said Pam Hume, executive director of MainStreet Libertyville.
"It's a great event. People seem to just really enjoy it," she said. "Serve wine, they will come."
"Let's Wine About Winter," Hume said, is a great way for people to taste a variety of wines and see what Libertyville has to offer. While the list of participating businesses is still being finalized, Hume said 30 businesses participated during last year's event.
"It's just a lovely afternoon of shopping and wine tasting," said Hume. "Everybody's always in high spirits. It's just a lot of fun. It's a down time of year (and) people are anxious to get out of the house."
The five distribution sites will be: Christine Anne Couture, 324 N. Milwaukee Ave.; Parkview Gourmet, 121 E. Cook Ave.; Petranek's Pharmacy, 426 N. Milwaukee Ave.; Curtis Frame/Back Alley Gallery, 543 N. Milwaukee; and North Shore Pro-Active Health, 112 W. Lake St.
