Home Newsroom 181. Buy 2 to Win 2 UnCork Barrington Tickets

We’ve cooked up a new contest here at 365Barrington.com inspired by the popular and 10th annual UnCork Barrington wine tasting which is TWO WEEKS away.  It’s happening from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 11th. So we thought this would be a great time to kick off our new “Buy 2 to Win 2” game with a pair of UnCork Barrington tickets to give away to one lucky winner.

With a new VIP top shelf wine tasting tent and Chicago’s BK Blues Band scheduled to perform, this year’s UnCork Barrington is going to be bigger, better and more awesome than ever.  (CLICK HERE for more about the new wine, food and entertainment highlights planned for this year’s UnCork Barrington.)

Tickets cost $40 in advance or $50 the day-of the event. There’s also a $25 “Designated Driver” ticket for guests who do not plan to taste wines.  And, brand new this year is a $90 VIP ticket offering access to a special VIP wine tasting tent where there will be an assortment of top shelf wines and a special selection of food for tasting.  I hear these VIP tickets are selling fast and they’re only being offered in limited quantity.

For a chance to win TWO TICKETS, all you have to do is purchase a pair of tickets ONLINE between now and the end of the day this Sunday, June 29th.  On Monday, we’ll enter your name into a drawing to win a pair of tickets so you can invite another couple or two friends to join you at UnCork Barrington, 2014.

CLICK HERE to enter the contest by purchasing your two tickets today.

We’ll draw and announce the winner this Monday, June 30th.

They could also use some extra help with volunteers interested in pouring this year’s featured wines. Organizers are currently seeking about 20 volunteers to pitch in as sommeliers pouring wines during this year’s UnCork Barrington from 6 to 10 p.m. on July 11th. For each volunteer who helps out, they’ll donate $50 to the charity of your choice and all you have to do is show up to work the event after taking part in a fun and quick training session at McGonigal’s Pub on Tuesday, July 8th.  CLICK HERE for more info about UnCork’s Volunteer program or email Volunteer@UncorkBarrington.com to sign up.  It’s a great way to experience UnCork and, if you ask me, it often looks like the volunteer sommeliers are having the most fun.

Got something big you want to do this year? Might as well Jump! No better day to begin than today but, if it involves being outside, don’t forget your snow boots. And your snow pants. And your Bernie mittens. This January 26th is going to be a snowy one in Barrington!
If today is your birthday, you have something in common with Eddie Van Halen. He was born on this day in 1957. Van Halen’s song, Jump was released in December, 1983, back when big hair was all the rage and I was 10 years old.
We’re sharing Jump and Van Halen’s classic music video as our song of the day. Take a look plus find our stories from this day in #BarringtonHistory TODAY at BarringtonDaily.com #LinkInBio or right here: https://wp.me/ p1NGbX-1eGz  
Have a great day & stay safe on the roads! - Liz #365Barrington #ThisDayInBarringtonHistory

Red Curry Quinoa Soup 👩‍🍳. Look for recipe in my previous post👩‍🍳. Super easy, packed with nutrients and low in sodium❤️heart healthy meal. Just use low sodium culinary stock and salt free DASH seasoning blend🙌. Be creative with your cooking. I replaced curry paste with tomato paste and fresh ginger with ginger spice and it was great! I also added fresh chopped kale just to have my serving of green vegetable🥬. Remember the rainbow🌈😊. Your body needs a fruit and vegetable from each color from the rainbow every single day 🌈🥬#blsnutrition #365barrington #mealplanning #healthycooking #lowsodium #livingplate #homecooking #hypertension ...
