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……

Dust off your derby hats and spruce up your seersucker suits, Barrington Children’s Charities’ second annual Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby party is coming up this Saturday and we’re all invited. Barrington Hills resident and Children’s Charities founder, Darby Hills (seen here on left), says there are fun new details in store for this year’s festivities, thanks, in part, to Kathleen McLaughlin, the local event planner behind the party.

All proceeds from this weekend’s party will directly benefit Barrington School District 220 families who are part of the free and reduced lunches program……

296. Find Ideas for Today’s Top Wedding Tablescapes
When I go to a wedding, one of the things I most look forward to is seeing how the bride and groom set the mood with all the details, large and small. From the flowers, to the place cards to the way the tables are set, sometimes the little things are what I remember most. Our wedding was right before Valentine’s Day, so we chose red tablecloths and romantic lighting. To be honest, I should disclose that by “we”, I mean my mom and I. Bill was enthusiastically indifferent.
But the one thing I wish I had when planning our wedding, was expert help. Barrington special events planner, Christina Currie would have been perfect for the job.…
