Chach occasionally turns into a toddler and requests a cheeseburger, pizza and and a giant cookie for dinner - none of which is typically available in an adult setting without a Dora the Explorer like character waiting on you except for Foodlife! Whether its Mexican, sushi, BBQ, chicken noodle soup, mac & cheese, cup cakes, Asian or home made gelato, Foodlife is like Disneyland for the food lover and can satisfy whatever craving you may have in one swell visit. The location within the Water Tower Mall on Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile, makes it a great place to take a load off and refuel while shopping. We made our way to Water Tower last night to check out some of their newly remodeled kiosks - including one featuring wine. I was really surprised by how many wines were offered at reasonable prices as low as $4.95 per glass. This is so awesome! How many times have you been out holiday shopping and then begin to feel frazzled by shopping anxiety or if you can't bare the thought of dealing with panicked crowds and have wished for a glass of Pinot Grigio to calm your nerves? Well, now you can! Just pop into Foodlife, pick up something to eat and get your glass. And, if you like the wine you can pick up a bottle from the Foodlife Market to take home.
On my way in, I also noticed a sign for their Monthly First Friday Wine Downs which is coming up next week. For $15 you get to try 20 different wines from all over the world - that's less than $1 per wine! Some wine tastings can be boring and clinical as they are frequented by wine snobs going on and on about the bouquet and aroma but the Foodlife tastings are different. The first time I attended one, I was immediately impressed with the young, professional and attractive crowd sipping and flirting with one another as they discussed the merits and attributes of each selection - I'm talking about wine here. If I was single and looking to taste and find a mate I would definitely be the first in line at these monthly events. I always tell my single and looking friends how wine tastings are a great place to meet someone as you are usually a little more relaxed with some wine in your system and you have the discussion of wine as a built in ice breaker. Not to mention, if someone is interested in wine then they are also likely to be interested in art, theater, traveling, cooking - you know the fun stuff! I also don't know why more men don't attend tastings as the attendance ratio is usually four women to one male. You can't get better odds of finding a nice lady. I for one, find men interested in wine quite attractive and that's without the wine goggles on.
This would also make a great gift or stocking stuffer for a budding or already bloomed wine lover. Call Foodlife for reservations and more information: 312-335-3663.
