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……
If you love searching for ideas to inspire your garden and one-of-a-kind treasures for your home, there’s one event in Barrington that you do not want to miss and it’s coming up this Friday and Saturday, June 15 & 16.

Somehow I’ve trained my two-year-old to say “It’s a happy day!” first thing when she wakes up. She shouts this out at the first signs of sunlight, even if it’s dark, stormy and I feel like crawling back into bed. But today, it really LOOKS like a happy day. The sun is shining (at least for now), the forecast calls 70 degrees and I feel like getting outside and planting something in the garden. But first, I’m heading over to the third annual Spring Antique and Garden Show at the Ice House Mall. It’s happening all day today and tomorrow and there are treasures to be found that are sure bring some sunshine into your own home or garden.
The Barrington Spring Antique and Garden Show is getting underway as we speak……Continue Reading
