By Mark Wachtler

April 27, 2016. Chicago (ONN) Move over beer crawl. Make way for the far north side wine walk. It’s officially called the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Wine Stroll and it takes place tomorrow night, April 28th, in the north side neighborhoods of Ravenswood and Lincoln Square. For three hours, participants will stop at dozens of local businesses to sample both red and white wines, as well as delicious hors d’oeuvres.

The Lincoln Square-Ravenswood Wine Stroll is April 28 from 6:30 to 9:30pm.

‘Each Spring and Fall, the LSR Wine Stroll transforms the retail establishments and restaurants of Lincoln Square and Ravenswood into wine tasting destinations,’ the event’s website details, ‘Over 45 businesses participate in each Stroll, pairing red and white wine samples with delicious hors d'oeuvres.  This event is a great way to tour new businesses and see just what makes our commercial community so special.’

The announcement goes on to explain, ‘While you stroll, you will have the opportunity to taste various types of reds and whites on the Lincoln and Ravenswood Routes while checking out restaurants, shops and businesses along the way. Each of the wines will be paired with delicious hors d'oeuvres at various Lincoln Square and Ravenswood establishments.’

Participants are also reminded that many of the dozens of businesses along the wine stroll route will be having special sales and offerings in conjunction with the bi-annual event. The Lincoln Square Ravenswood Spring Wine Stroll is a wonderful evening spent meandering through the Lincoln Square Ravenswood neighborhood, visiting restaurants and shops, and sampling wonderful wine selections, including some Midwestern wines from Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.
