If you are new to wine, and want a nice afternoon or evening, try this place. They try to make wine less complicated by classifying it into types or flavors. You can try several at a time, or just a glass. The servers seem to know more than average, but can be a bit pushy. Food is also served, but is nothing spectacular. For a real treat, try a chocolate desert paired with sparkling raspberry wine
This location is on a busy corner and is parking challenged. However, the pizza is good and reasonably priced. Once slice is enough for me, but some people might want two. The calzones are huge.
Ended up here by accident, but maybe it was meant to be. This place serves great vegetarian food, and most of the people that work here are volunteers. Proceeds go to a nearby Buddhist center. This is a great brunch place on the weekends as well.
If you don't want to go through the game of buying books at the beginning of the semester and hoping you will get a decent price for them when you are done, try this place. You rent the books and then just turn them in when you are done. This is great for the books you know you wouldn't possibly want to keep. Their hours are not that great, so make sure they are open before you go.
We came in contact with this organization when looking for a pet to adopt. Although I have not been on-site to see their facilities, they did seem very thorough when deciding if we would be a good family for adoption. They microchip the pets upon adoption and request that if you ever have to give your pet up, you give them first option.
The chocolate fountain provided by this company was the hit of the wedding. I had visions of a dress stained with chocolate, but the fountain and dipping choices were set up to keep everyone as clean as possible. Definitely worth the cost.
If you and a friend can manage to eat their giant meat eater pizza, you win some money. But you will need it for your cardiologist because this is some greasy pizza. They also sell by the slice.
This is similar to a mall-type restaurant, but is in a strip center instead. Prices are good for the amount of food that you get. They advertise sushi but I always stick to the house specialty.
It is ironic that this place is right next to a Weight Watchers meeting place, since nothing served here is the least bit healthy. Chicago dogs, brats, sausage and the like with all the fixings. I hardly ever see anyone here, but the food is decent. Plus I'm never there at lunchtime.
The food was great, and so was the service. However there was a distracting fountain that pretty much made the meal un-enjoyable. It was too loud and made it difficult to have a conversation.
