236. Guess Where Wednesday: “Sip Local” Central

 It’s time for our regular Guess Where Wednesday mystery photo contest and, this week, we have a theme.  The Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting their 9th annual Taste’fest & EXPO on Thursday of next week.  So I decided to snap a photo outside one of the many area restaurants taking part in the big event.  So let’s see if I can stump you on this one.  Can anyone guess where in Barrington I was standing when I took this picture?

If  you can guess where I took the picture and who loves the “Sip Local” message, you’ll have a chance to win two tickets to Taste’fest, and that’s a $70 value!  This year’s 9th annual Barrington Taste’fest is taking place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. next Thursday, September 20th, at the Chicago Marriott Northwest in Hoffman Estates.

If you want to pick your new favorite local restaurant, this is probably the quickest way to do it.  Food & beverage experts and chefs from 30+ area restaurants, cafés, wineries and microbreweries will be serving up samplings of their signature dishes at next week’s Taste’fest. Restaurants include: Agio Italian Bistro, Apple Villa Famous Pancake House & Restaurant, Brunch Café, Cook Street Coffee, Coopers Hawk Winery & Restaurant, Couture Cupcake Café,  DiBenedetto Trattoria, Egg Shells, Enzo & Lucia Ristorante & Café, Eshticken Pizza, Francesca Famiglia, Frantonios-Italian Café, Georgio’s Chicago Pizzeria, Hawthorn Woods Golf Club, Jerseys Pizza & Grill, Jewel/Osco, L’Eiffel Bistrot, Long Grove Cafe & Restaurant, Marriott River City Grille & Lounge, McGonigal’s Pub, Millrose Restaurant & Banquets, On Occasion Catering , Pinstripes, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Savory Salads, Sweet Whimsy, The Annex, Whole Foods Market, The Anvil Club, The Lucky Monk & more.
Feeling hungry?  Be sure to bring your appetite next Thursday night!  CLICK HERE for more event details and to purchase tickets online.  Or, for a chance to win tickets, just take another look at today’s mystery photo and give us your best guess!  Look closely at the image.  You might find a blurry clue or two in the background.
Entering the contest will take you seconds and we’ll reveal the winner on Wednesday of next week. But first, let’s take a look at who won last week’s mystery photo contest. We must have a lot of sweets lovers in the crowd because we received many guesses last week and almost all of them were right! Except for Kris, the self-proclaimed optimist who guessed that we took the picture of the pastries “in my fridge the next time I open the door.”  We love your wishful thinking, Kris!  So here’s our winner. We just drew her name and it’s……
