Sad Face

LUSH West Town has been in the works for quite some time.  From the ground construction takes a bit of time, apparently, and contractors and carpenters, painters, plumbers, and such are a rowdy bunch and take some cajoling to meet deadlines.  Throwing booze at them only helps so much, and my super sad face just didn’t do it.  So, it’s been an intense, battling struggle to restrain our anxiety and overflowing joy to be opening a new shop.  We are nearly spilling over…just waiting for the dear city to bestow the ultimate gift, the golden ticket of a liquor license.  I will absolutely holler at the top of my virtual internet lungs the moment that our status progresses. Oh please, oh please, oh please.

However, in the meantime, alas, I must unfortunately call a halt to our raucous plans for Friday the 13th and kabosh the launch party until another date.  Do not fear, free wine, beer and snackies will be available when said party commences.  It will be a knee-slapping roof shaking good time.  We’ve got to break the new store in, of course.  So, NO go on the grand opening of Lush West Town this week.  If we do indeed procure said license, I will throw open the doors and welcome the thirsty, the seekers of knowledge and fun.

Please partake in the good times and show your support of our local little wine shop.  We are extremely thrilled to join the West Town neighborhood and the amazing local joints along the way…food, art, and a lively, smart drinking culture.  Pop in and say hi; get to know your Lushes.  And, we LOVE you.

For future reference, all pertinent details below…LUSH West Town, 1412 West Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL  60642.  312-666-6900.  Holler at rachel@lushwineandspirits.com with questions.

And, for an alternative party plan, join LUSH Roscoe 4-6pm for a vertical Goose Island Bourbon County Stout tasting (06, 07, 08, 09) with a little dash of Matilda and Sophie…good historical lesson, ya know…AND, 6-8pm for a wine tasting with Lagniappe founder Andrew Grossman.  We’ll be tasting the great Dexter Lake mustache clad wine, Forlorn Hope, and some Argentinian juice.

Savvy?  LUSH it up.
