Home Newsroom 204. New VIP Tent Scores High Marks at UnCork Barrington

UnCork Barrington attendees are raving about the huge success of this year’s brand new VIP Tent featured at Friday’s 10th annual event.  Volunteers poured top shelf wines and VIP ticketholders were treated to special appetizers for pairing courtesy of On Occasion Catering & Events.

UnCork Chair Doug Skor with the Barrington Village Association (BVA) says, thanks to Vin Chicago, guests walked away more informed about an excellent grouping of wines.  “People that joined us and those who participated in the VIP tent were glowing.  They particularly loved that Vin put their two top sommeliers in tent and these guys were definitely geniuses when it comes to wine.  The bottom line is that, for year-one of the VIP tent, we spiked the ball really hard and already have some great ideas to expand upon it for next year.”

I have been involved with UnCork Barrington since the first annual event, as both a sponsor and a guest over the years.  There’s no doubt this event simply gets better with age.  But you don’t have to take my word for it!   In our latest video for 365BarringtonTV, we spoke to long-time UnCork fans to find out what keeps them coming back year after year.

If you missed this year’s UnCork Barrington, mark it on your calendar for 2015.  This annual event traditionally happens on the Friday following Fourth of July weekend in Barrington.  That falls on Friday, July 10th in 2015.  And if you’re looking for new wines to try, CLICK HERE to review UnCork’s 2014 wine list.  And drop by Vin Chicago on Barrington’s Main Street to pick up any of this year’s featured wines to sample at home.

We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s UnCork Barrington.  In the meantime, here’s one last look at this year’s evening out, courtesy of these festive photographs captured by Barrington Photographer, Julie Linnekin.

Salutations! Today we don't just have /one/ Word of the Day... no no no. Today, I'd like to introduce you to the days of the week! 😁

First things first, though! We had an --amazing-- club meeting last week. Pretty chill, pretty conversational -- and I got my butt kicked at both Kahoot and Gimkit. 😂

Onto the Words! So, there're a lot of ways to say the days of the week in Chinese. You can start 'em off with 星期 (xīng qī),周 (zhōu),or even sometimes 礼拜(lǐ bài). For today, we'll look at the way I first learned that sequence: 星期 (xīng qī)

So, if you know numbers, this might make a lot of sense. Essentially, the days of the week are numbered (Monday = 星期一, with 一 yī meaning "one"). The only exception is Sunday, which can be called 星期日 xīng qī rì , with 日 meaning "sun," or 星期天 xīng qī tiān, with 天 meaning "sky" or "heaven."

Okay, okay. Enough dallying. Here's the quick list:
星期一 xīng qī yī Monday
星期二 xīng qī èr Tuesday
星期三 xīng qī sān Wednesday
星期四 xīng qī sì Thursday
星期五 xīng qī wǔ Friday
星期六 xīng qī liù Saturday
星期天 xīng qī tiān Sunday

Thanks guys! I hope that made sense 🙃
