We're heading back to Bar Louie for our last Thursday gathering before Christmas. It's located about a block south of Randhurst shopping center in Mt. Prospect. On Thursdays, all their wine is $5 per glass. They also have a great beer selection, $5 specialty martinis and many half-price appetizers for happy hour. We always have fun here, and they treat us very well, so please take good care of our servers and bartenders. If you haven't been there before, it's attached to Holiday Inn Express, on the east side of Rand Road and just south of Kensington Road. See you there!
