Sorting rosé fact from myth: 
The first days of summer are like an alarm clock for rosé drinkers. "The first nice day of the season, you'll see rosé sales skyrocket. Everyone thinks, 'It's sunny and warm, I want something pink,'" said Kristin Irwin, wine sales manager at recently opened Max's Wine Dive in Wicker Park . "Especially if you have a patio, you're in business." Though rosé wine is appropriate year-round, its acidic and refreshing character makes it a no-brainer ...

Last summer, Parson's Chicken & Fish in Logan Square introduced its negroni slushie, and Chicago pretty much flipped out. I swear there were weeks when my Instagram feed was nothing but Hudson-filtered shots of frozen orange booze.
