Barrington Mystery Photo Contest

Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Chuck! How exciting to be in the throws of planning a wedding.  As the father of the bride, this week’s prize might come in handy as a gift for your daughter.  I’ll be emailing you this afternoon with details about how to receive your Juliska catchall 3×3 “Gardens of the World” tray courtesy of the Barrington Home Shoppe.  Click HERE to view last week’s photo and to see all of the guesses. It is, indeed, a picture of the awning outside Wedding Belles Ltd. in Barrington. Wedding Belles is a special place for brides throughout Chicagoland.  Many brides-to-be make a special trip to the bridal boutique at 334 W. Main Street to find the perfect wedding dress.  Wedding Belles first opened in Barrington almost 22 years ago and sells sample designer bridal gowns at deep discounts of up to 10-50% off.  Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.

It’s that wonderful time of year again when all my favorite stores have fresh wild King and Copper River Salmon available! By far my favorite preparation is grilling it on cedar planks - absolutely heavenly!
