“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.…”
We asked our team once again to share their thoughts on what made their “favorite things” list and here they are!
Let’s start with cocktail establishments… because there are a couple we look forward to frequenting. 🍸🍸
-504 Kitchen in Glen Ellyn has a quiet and cozy bar to saddle up to and let George the bartender extraordinaire impress you with his offerings.
-The Parlour at Oak and Park in Glen Ellyn also serves amazing specialty cocktails in a classic yet stylish setting that makes you feel like you stepped into your favorite instagram decor post.
Subscriptions we gotta have…. involve none other than books and cheese. The Glen Ellyn Bookstore offers the Pick of the Lit subscription where you receive a new hardcover book hand-picked by the staff each month. To go with your book, our favorite cheese mongers at Marche in Glen Ellyn will select and hand-cut three (approx 1.25 lbs) of the finest examples of seasonally featured cheeses with the Culture Club subscription.
