Here's The Jist:

As a Drink Editor I receive a lot of requests for restaurant, bar and nightlife recommendations. So I started a blog to chronicle Chicago's social scene which eventually morphed into New York's drinking and dining scene. After years in Chicago, I'm now a full time resident of NYC, the East Village to be exact. Look forward to sharing the latest and greatest from the wine & spirits world, straight from the Big Apple.

Lolla Music Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel

I was invited to the Lolla Music Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel for some much needed R&R (slash partying) prior to checking out the shows in Chicago's Grant Park. This year's major sponsors included Chicago's entertainment resource, Metromix, a bevy of beverage brands (who knew Cafe Bustelo coffee was so good!?), a gifting suite (Diesel Jeans anyone?), tattoo's from celeb artists, rock band and guitar hero. In the Eastsport Cafe food was taken care of by the China Grill, Berry Chill was on hand offering as much frozen yogurt in their signature flavor as you can eat and it was at this private sit-down cafe, that musicians mingled with the editors of Spin, Vibe, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair.
