Hot This Week
Share your #HolidayHorrorStory
Ah, the holidays. Steaming mugs of hot cocoa, twinkling lights and festive sweaters, delicious cookie swap parties... and the shattered heirloom champagne flute one of your guests accidentally knocked over. Blow a fuse after plugging in all of your holiday lights? Accidentally regift the fruitcake to the person who gave it to you? Share an awkward moment under the mistletoe with a coworker? There’s always something. What’s your #HolidayHorrorStory? Join the conversation by using the hashtag above on Google+ and Twitter. Your pick just may wind up in our next newsletter!
This Bloomingdale gastropub is more than your average watering hole — boasting a hearty variety of whiskey and a slew of seasonally-rotating local draught beers, it's no wonder Boundary Stone is a favorite. The long, handsome bar and wooden booths are crafted from reclaimed wood. Paired with its neighborly service, Boundary Stone feels like home.
Get really local with a visit to the brand new Union Market! If you haven't been to this indoor farmers market yet you are missing out. The variety of high quality, locally sourced vendors (think butchers, bakers and pickle makers) combined with the tantalizing dining options (cupcakes, an oyster bar and everything in-between) make Union Market the perfect destination.
