Henry 1997-2015
Today was the last day we’ll pet Henry.  He died peacefully, in his own bed, under sedation, with bacon on his breath and our hands in his fur.  It was all we could think to give him and the very least he deserved. Henry was a very good boy. The truth is I ...

It saddens me that there will be no more Henry. He seemed like a great dog. At least he'll be immortalized on the show, so to speak.

I completely understand the timing of "Inbox" could not have been worse for a weekly show, but spending the first 17 minutes on something nobody has used and that 2/3 of the hosts can't use was not TWiGs finest hour.

Pretty sure most deck layouts these days use the Bubble Wand and Mini Soccer Ball method.

What a great place. Such friendly and helpful people behind the counter. And fresh tortilla chips so thick one was being used to shim up an uneven table leg. The carnitas burritos were excellent and the nachos are huge and sloppy, in a good way. I'd recommend the horchata but before that the orange juice. I thought it was kind of strange when my friend told me to get the orange juice at lunch, but I was not disappointed.

Good food, good service. Be ready for a bit of a wait on a Friday night if you just show up. Ordered a special, Gorgonzola and walnut encrusted whitefish. Excellent. The prosciutto wrapped cheese, grilled, as appetizer was also great. $7 valet parking, so be ready to hike a bit to avoid that. Had a very good meal here, two people, appetizer, a couple glasses of good wine apiece, no dessert, about $120 with tip. Very pleased to have this in the neighborhood.

There is a reason this place is jammed on the weekends and after work. They don't have everything, but they do have great prices on a lot of things including wine and organics. Just moved from a block away and it is the main thing I'll miss about that neighborhood.

We were kind of taken aback by the ambiance here. It is more like a coffee shop with a bar on one side than a traditional wine bar, not in a bad way, just...odd. We elected to sit outside, which is about 70 yards from where the commuter and freight trains pass and/or stop. It is not too loud and is actually a really fascinating backdrop. We were there about 9 on a Friday night and you could see people in the lit METRA cars going into and out of the city. Definitely beats watching Lincoln Park sidewalk traffic. We were skeptical, but once we sat down, the wine list was extensive and reasonable. I would agree with other reviewers that the menu wouldn't make this a dinner destination, but there are plenty of small plates to tide you over if you are just looking for something to munch on. The cons were that they seemed to be out of a lot of stuff on a Friday night, and that the mussels we ordered were cold, or rather half cold, which seemed worse somehow. We weren't too bothered by it, low expectations and all, but when the waiter saw we had only eaten one apiece, he quizzed us on why and immediately kind-of-scolded us for not saying something, stating they'd much rather take it off the bill then have us leave unhappy. Extremely nice of them. We had a good salad and a cheese flight that was also good, though they were out of a couple choices. And while not crazy cheap, it was not pricey. I'd say as far as the wines go, because there is a sort of floor to wine pricing in a restaurant, the cheaper glasses were not huge values, but we found if you went up the list a little, you could get glasses of better wines at very reasonable prices. A very pleasant experience and we'd definitely go back when in the area again. A lot of "pros", and the couple of "cons" were no big deal, we've both worked in that industry and know there are off nights. The attitude of the staff and management gave us confidence they are rare here.

Bought a fixer-upper down the street, so I'm in here all the time. Very well run and they keep the placed well-stocked, which is sometimes a problem at HD stores. As always with these places, going at off hours is your best bet. Avoid first thing in the morning when the contractors are loading up for the day and 6:30 pm when all the homeowners are in asking questions. I try to go from 9-4, and usually have at least 3 people ask if they can help me while I'm there. Another plus, every employee I've spoken to knows where even unusual things are located in the store, which is a big time saver.
