Some of you may have noticed we were closed this past Saturday, October 18. We were attending the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls Ringside event. Both Kinzie Chophouse and The Wine Huntress were sponsors for this event. The Wine Huntress sponsored an area at the event called Mercy’s Mag Mile. I donated many highly sought after magnums from my personal collection as well as received donations from various purveyors and collectors. We were proud to announce 80 exclusive one of a kind offerings for this event. If you want more information about future events, please visit: www.mercyhome.org/ringside
Also, over the past couple of months, I had the pleasure of putting together the wine list for my brother Joe’s restaurant called J Rocco located at 749 N. Clark St. or visit: www.jroccoitalian.com . It is true southern Italian fare with many of my family’s favorite recipes. I introduced the list three weeks ago and it is going quite well. The list represents wine from over 17 of Italy’s 20 regions. If you get a chance, please stop by and tell them that Susan sent you.
