The free, weekly and Barrington-focused newspaper arrives in mailboxes throughout zip code 60010 on Thursdays and Editor, Dan McCaleb, just shared a teaser, with these stories to be found inside this week’s paper…

Bring your own wine
A Chicago-based, national, create-your-own-art franchise has announced its plans to expand to the Barrington area, possibly before the end of this year. Bottle & Bottega Co-owner Nancy Bigley told Barrington Suburban Life reporter Tarah Thorne more about the business, which combines various forms of hands-on art instruction with a glass of wine and a social, after-work atmosphere.

$1.5M home has hidden features
Step inside a lavish Lake Barrington home on Gray Barn Lane where a three-stop elevator makes for convenience. A second, fun feature can be found in an upper-floor bedroom suite where a walk-in closet hosts a hidden door, ready to be opened into a large, roomy space – ready to be finished. Take your own tour of the estate in this week’s Barrington Suburban Life.

Chicago-scale entertainment
Barrington is abuzz as Rotary and Village Association members ready for the town’s first-ever ChristKindlFest. Ten wooden houses, built at Pepper Construction in Lake Barrington, will be stationed in the Harris Bank parking lot (between Grove Ave. and S. Cook and Station Streets) as of early this week. The festival is set to run in conjunction with traditional village ceremonies, Friday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Dec. 8. Barrington Suburban Life reporter Tarah Thorne visited a final planning meeting to hear just what residents can expect for the Daley Plaza-inspired German American holiday market.

In their life

Ciskowski opened up in this week’s issue of Barrington Suburban Life, sharing what has ultimately led her to Minnesota and her motivation behind the challenging sport. “You learn by self-teaching,” Ciskowski said.
