The School of LUSH SCOTCH 101 is running Thursday, March 4th from 6:30-8pm at LUSH in Roscoe Village. SCOTCH 101 is a lip smacking, fun and interactive introduction to the basics of tasting Scotch, delving into the deep history and production, and talking about it, purchasing it, pairing with food, and how to pass as scotch savvy. Spots still available…but call now to RSVP. Non-refundable, $35 per person. Sip it!

Special ‘BIG’ Event…
Saturday, March 6th, 5:30-8:30pm: Mr. Matthew Rorick of Forlorn Hope Winery is hosting a BIG, yes we mean REALLY big, wine shindig.  A 9L bottle of Suspiro del Muro will be the superstar, with supporting roles played by the Old Woodsbull and friends, as well as the suspiciously fun Dexter Lake.  Rumor is there will be copious amounts of food pairings as well as a keg of delicious beer. And at LUSH a rumor is always right on.  Rules…you must RSVP and hold the reso with a credit card; bringing a friend or few is strongly recommended; and a rollicking good time is required.  Please RSVP by Monday, March 1st to rachel@lushwineandspirits.com.  $25.  If you insist upon spontaneity, day of, you are still welcome, but only for $30 bones.

Also, stay in touch…STONE brewing is coming to LUSH for a big kick off, launch event.  And, Mr. Julian Van Winkle of Old Pappy Van Winkle, will be in town for whiskey fest, and at LUSH for a whiskey and cocktail dinner event.  More details soon.  You can sign up now, though.  Call 312.666.6900 and chat with Rachel or Kelly, or email kelly@lushwineandspirits.com.

Fieldtrips…
NEW GLARUS – Get on the bus. We are venturing forth to Wisconsin, across the border and into the farm country. Tentative details involve meeting at LUSH, grabbing a bevvie, and hopping on the bus for a wild ride to the brewery. A brewery tour will be arranged, sampling is necessarily included, and personal purchase encouraged. There will be room on the bus for BEER to come back home with us. After we are all sloshy, we’ll head to a local establishment for snacks before heading home. Proposed date is Saturday, March 13th. This will be an all day excursion. We’re figuring out the down and dirty details on pricing and such…but space is extremely limited. The BUS is now full up, but if you would like to reserve a spot on the waiting list, email me NOW, rachel@lushwineandspirits.com. Yeehaw! Forbidden beer is just so damn tasty!

3 Floyds Dark Lord Day – The second annual LUSH DLD bus trip is back. Brunch, beer and bloodys at LUSH Halsted before trekking down to Indiana for an all day beer extravaganza. Bring a chair and a cooler full of brews to knock back and trade while waiting in line. Good times. Rumor is, this beer will be seriously outrageous this year and the visiting breweries rockin.  Cost to be determined. Space is very limited, once again, and once we fill up, we will start a waiting list. Reserve your seat now with Ms. Erin, erin@lushwineandspirits.com. Round trip in style.
