LINCOLN SQUARE — Lincoln Square’s Wine Stroll is going online this year due to the worsening coronavirus pandemic.
The event’s organizers are raising money for neighborhood small businesses and the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce by selling wine and snack packs.
These packs include the $55.36 Autumn Red Flight, a grouping of red wines for the fall season, and the $69.53 Thanksgiving Day Survival Pack, which features four bottles of wine picked for Thanksgiving food pairings and a pandemic.
Participants can also buy a $32.09 cheese and charcuterie combo featuring cheese from sheep and cow’s milk, in addition to salami, pork rillette, house-made jam, pickled vegetables and more.
The full menu of wine and snack pack options is available online.
Orders must be placed online by 3 p.m. Wednesday. They will be available for pickup Nov. 20 from Ricochet’s Tavern, 4644 N. Lincoln Ave., and L&M Fine Foods, 4363 N. Lincoln Ave.
The shopper must be at least 21 and identification will be requested upon pickup.
“Shopping locally has never been more important as many small businesses have struggled to stay afloat amid the pandemic,” said Rudy Flores, executive director of the chamber of commerce.
“By promoting our local businesses and the unique products and gifts they offer, we hope our community will continue to support our local economy this holiday season.”
