I love how the cover of this week’s Barrington Suburban Life newspaper hints to an amazing recipe and photo spread you’ll find inside that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day and those looking for a more healthy alternative to your typical holiday dessert.
The cover story, straight from Pure Organic Juicery in Barrington, is one of several features in this week’s paper about Valentine’s Day and more new things to do in Barrington. Here’s a snippet of the stories you’ll find inside this week’s issue, courtesy of Barrington Surburban Life reporter, Tarah Thorne.
Game on! There’s a new sports facility in the area
Main Street Sports Center is now open at the corner of Route 22 and Main Street in Lake Zurich. Owner and lifelong Barrington resident, Matt Menges shares the details of his new home turf. Imagine four, large indoor sports fields; soccer, dodgeball, baseball, lacrosse, basketball and adult fitness programs. Ex-professional soccer star Oscar Albuquerque has even introduced a popular South American sport, Futsal – similar to soccer but played on a tile court.

Lights, camera, Hollywood at the Catlow
What better way to beat winter weather than a cozy day at the Catlow watching Oscar-nominated short films.

Seats might just be sold out, according to theater owner Tim O’Connor.
