174. Barrington EATS: Fruit of the Sea for Father’s Day

 For our Father’s Day weekend edition of “Barrington EATS”, I’m inspired by a famous quote from a classic movie about a quintessential American dad who lives humbly and makes it big, Forrest Gump.   Remember this quote from Forrest’s best bud and business partner, Bubba?  It’s the kind of line that gets stuck in your head like a song…
“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.”

These crustaceans are significantly high in protein, have good amounts of b12 and are extremely low in fat and calories. To give your dad a healthy treat and the “Fruit of the Sea” this Father’s Day, I thought I’d share a few easy shrimp recipes for you to prepare at home……

173. Welcome the New Season with the Summer Wine Walk

 We have a libation theme going this weekend with a number of beverage-centered specials and events taking place in Barrington.  With the first day of summer only five days away, merchants downtown are getting a jump start on the season by hosting the first ever Summer Wine Walk, a compliment to the well-attended Winter Wine Walk they hosted in March.

The FREE event will be hosted by participating businesses surrounding Cook and Station Streets from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 16th.  Each merchant will have a wine map for you to grab so you can see what’s available for sipping before you move on to your next destination. Participating merchants will be offering a total of 14 wines to sample along with appetizers from Cooper’s Pizza.  And to add a little summer sizzle, Park Avenue Restaurant will feature live music with Brian Saltzman from 3 to 6 p.m.
More merchants have joined the downtown wine walk for tomorrow’s event.  Here’s a look at who’s participating and what you will enjoy as you power your way through the town……
