Deal of the day . . .
It's the third Tuesday of the month. Do you know what that means? Probably not, so here it is:
Randolph Wine Cellars (1415 W. Randolph St., 312-942-1212), in the West Loop, hosts its Third Tuesday Tasting, a fabulous event where you get to sample more than 30 different wines that are complemented by appetizers. They'll be pouring big, bold wines for the night. Also, if there's something you particularly loved, you will also get a discount on bottles you purchase. Reservations required. 6-8pm. $30.
Also happening tonight at 6pm is a special event at Custom House (500 S. Dearborn St., 312-523-0200) in the South Loop. Guests will have the opportunity to sample vino from boutique winery Tensley Wines with small bites from Chef de Cuisine Richard Camarota in the private dining room.
The winery produces more than 3,300 cases, including seven single-vineyard Syrahs—the most in Santa Barbara County.
