  • Lynfred Winery Commemorates 35th Anniversary with Grandiose and Unique Month-Long Celebration Oct 13, 2014 4:59 PM
    Opening in October of 1979, Lynfred Winery began as a labor of love between Fred and Lynn Koehler. Throughout the years, the winery has expanded from its quaint and humble beginnings, and the Lynfred family is pleased to announce that this upcoming month pays appropriate tribute to a legacy of fine wine making tradition. Credited as pioneers of the Illinois winemaking industry, the Koehler’s sought to establish a family business where visitors would feel welcomed and appreciated from the moment they walked through the winery doors. Today, Chilean winemakers Andres Basso and Rodrigo Gonzalez strive to maintain the quality and complexity of wines from which Lynfred has come to be known. Specially released during the month of October, Lynfred’s 35 Anniversary Lineage blend is composed of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, and Alicante Bouschet. Aged for 38 months in specifically selected barrels, this rich, complex unfiltered wine has an aging potential of 8-15 years. On October 16, join Lynfred for an extraordinary evening of food and wine for the Anniversary Winemaker Dinner. Head winemaker, Andres Basso, and the Lynfred chefs have handcrafted a tantalizing menu fit for a milestone celebration. For those whose interest is piqued by the wine-making process, roll up your sleeves and spend a day in the cellar crushing grapes, blending wines, and enjoying the fruits of you labors alongside Lynfred winemakers Andres Basso and Rodrigo Gonzalez. The Lynfred Winery Bootcamp begins October 18 at 9:30am. Lynfred Winery is the oldest and largest, continuously-operating, family winery in Illinois, producing over 70 varietals and 30,000 cases of fine wine per year. Since 1979, Lynfred Winery has offered guests the finest vintages, gourmet cuisine and luxurious lodging. Lynfred is truly one of Chicago’s most unique attractions.

     
  • Paramount Theatre to Present “A Hard Day’s Night” October 15 Oct 13, 2014 4:56 PM
    A special showing of a “A Hard Day’s Night” will be presented at the Paramount Theatre, 213 North Schuyler Avenue, Kankakee, on Wednesday, October 15 at 7 PM. Tickets are $5 per person and available at the Paramount Theatre box office or online www.classiccinemas.com. The event is sponsored by WVLI 92.7, WFAV 95.1, WIVR 101.7 and WYUR 103.7. WVLI morning personality Bob Malkowski will emcee the event. A digitally restored version of the classic Beatles comedy musical was released this year to commemorate the film’s 50th anniversary. “A Hard Day’s Night” (G/87 min.) portrays a couple of days in the lives of the band. The film is considered to be one of the best and most influential musical films of all time. Richard Lester’s boldly contemporary rock n’ roll comedy unleashes the fledgling Beatles into a maelstrom of screaming fans, paranoid producers, rabid press and troublesome family members, and reveals the secret of their survival and success: an insatiable lust for mischief and a life-affirming addiction to joy.
