The grocery stores will be packed this week with people pushing baskets overflowing with all the fixins for Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll be hectic, it’ll be crazy and the cash registers will be working overtime.

I sat my son down the other day and we had a talk. It was right after he got the best of a kiwi. I told him, “Baby, I know you’re just a baby, but there’s something very important that I want you to remember when you grow up.” He blew a few bubbles, made […]
I have a bad habit of overusing exclamation points, but today, I simply HAD to put one in our title! Because, one week from today, the area’s only Open-Air Skating Rink will be opening for business in South Barrington.

Earlier this week I promised that I’d follow up with some fun Halloween activities going on this weekend for adults in Barrington and there’s one event happening tomorrow night that sounds simply sinful. It’s called “Bubbles, Bon Bons and Brie” and you’re going to DIE when you hear the details. Skull Lollipop anyone?
There are a TON of Halloween events happening in Barrington this week and this is one time when I’m going to do my best to share ALL of the GORY DETAILS. Today, I’m focusing on Halloween events for kids, just because I love this picture of a Barrington dad all dressed up and holding his […]
Halloween is just one week from today and, with all of the tombstones, ghouls and eerie jack-o-lanterns decorating homes throughout Barrington, I can’t help but be reminded of the more sinister side of the holiday.

Halloween isn’t until next weekend, but here’s a great way for your kids to break in this year’s costumes before the big night. There’ll be trick-or-treaters out and about at one Barrington hot spot tomorrow afternoon.
