191. Tour the World with Wine at Uncork Barrington 2012

 Would you like to sample 50 quality wines from 10 regions of the world in 1 place tomorrow night? That’s what’s on the agenda for the 8th annual Uncork Barrington wine tasting happening tomorrow night, Friday, July 6th, in downtown Barrington. Today, we have the details about the wine, the food and some brand new features for this year’s event.

Uncork Barrington is one of the community’s most unique and social tasting events of the season, capping off Barrington’s 4th of July festivities before the tent retires for another year. We took part as sponsors of the first Uncork Barrington event eight years ago and I can attest that his is one party that keeps getting better with age.…

180. Ride Hogwarts Express & Tour the Train Lady’s Railway Gardens

 The Train Lady is opening the doors of her private property tomorrow, June 23rd, to let the public view her amazing train garden railways and she has some exciting new highlights planned for this year. If you’ve never seen her gardens, you do not want to miss this awesome opportunity to experience something really special and only found right here in North Barrington. Train Lady, Elaine Silets, has been hosting tours of her property once a year since 1990, but this year she’ll be introducing us all to some very special guests.
Elaine designs model railroad gardens for a living and your jaw will drop when you see the garden scenes she’s created in her own back yard. It’s 10 luscious acres she calls Gardens at Wandering Tree.
The grounds are covered with gorgeous flowering gardens, laced with miniature tracks and spotted with whimsical model train vignettes.
One of many highlights is the Glorée & Tryumfant Garden Railway, complete with 6,000 square feet of waterfalls, streams, lakes, bridges, trestles, city and country scenes.  And Elaine is raving about her roses this year, “I don’t know what happened to the roses, but I think they got hormones from this weather.  They’re absolutely gorgeous!”
Her gardens are stunning, but one of my kids’ favorite features is Elaine’s train which carries children as passengers and circles around her drive. It’s called “Hogwarts Express” and tomorrow it’ll be the hottest ticket in town!
More details on her gardens in a minute, but first, here’s what’s new this year……

46. Sample 50 Fine Wines at Uncork Barrington 2011

 If you love fine wine and savor opportunities to sip samples from around the globe, you don’t want to miss tomorrow night’s 7th Annual “Uncork Barrington” event. I have attended this party every year since it started back in 2005 and, like a fine wine, it just keeps getting better with age.

The party starts at 6 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, July 8th, and the planners have decided to extend the end time an hour this year, until 10 p.m., to accommodate those who get home later from work. When you enter the event, you’ll receive a complimentary wine glass and a wine passport to track your tastings.  There will be 50 different wines from all regions of the world available to sample along with complimentary hors d’oeuvres from some of the finest local restaurants.…
