181. Toad the Wet Sprocket at South Barrington Arboretum Music Fest

 Anyone up for a FREE music festival this weekend?  Prepare to flash back to the 90’s because Toad the Wet Sprocket is one of ten bands performing at the Arboretum of South Barrington’s two-day Block Party and Music Fest, which starts at noon tomorrow.

There’s a great lineup of performers for both Saturday and Sunday, but the headlining band is Toad the Wet Sprocket performing at 8:30 on Saturday night. Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, this 4-piece band of Santa Barbara, CA high school cronies came to be known as Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986. The band’s big commercial breakthrough came in 1991 (the year I graduated from high school) as the single “All I Want” became a Top 20 hit. Another single from Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Fear LP, “Walk on the Ocean,” also became a successful track for the band.
Here’s a look at the scheduled performers for the fest and an oldie but goodie by Toad the Wet Sprocket……

173. Welcome the New Season with the Summer Wine Walk

 We have a libation theme going this weekend with a number of beverage-centered specials and events taking place in Barrington.  With the first day of summer only five days away, merchants downtown are getting a jump start on the season by hosting the first ever Summer Wine Walk, a compliment to the well-attended Winter Wine Walk they hosted in March.

The FREE event will be hosted by participating businesses surrounding Cook and Station Streets from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 16th.  Each merchant will have a wine map for you to grab so you can see what’s available for sipping before you move on to your next destination. Participating merchants will be offering a total of 14 wines to sample along with appetizers from Cooper’s Pizza.  And to add a little summer sizzle, Park Avenue Restaurant will feature live music with Brian Saltzman from 3 to 6 p.m.
More merchants have joined the downtown wine walk for tomorrow’s event.  Here’s a look at who’s participating and what you will enjoy as you power your way through the town……
