Chicago's Bin36 restaurant and the best acoustic performances

Been on the road these past two weeks and unable to blog, but while I was attending the American Society For Clinical Oncology meeting in Chicago, my wife and I were able to visit our favorite restaurant, Bin36. If you ever get to Chicago, don’t miss this place, especially if you like wine and want to learn more. They have a marvelous selection of cheese flights so start with one as an appetizer. The wines can be ordered by the glass, bottle, or in a flight that consists of four different choices. The dinner entrees are tapas-style so you can mix and match, and everything we had was delicious. But our favorite wine of the night was their own Duncan & Sachs Proprietary Red, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. It’s a deep red color with aromas of dark berries and a touch of mocha. The flavor is full of blackberries, plums, and healthy overtones of dark chocolate. Light on the tannins which is fine with me. We took a bottle ($17.00) back to our hotel for the next night. Outstanding!

And to compliment any ole wine you’re drinking, here’s a collection of what I consider to be some of the greatest guitar numbers, performances, and guitarist in the acoustic world starting with Michael Hedges and ending with Tommy Emmanuel. Enjoy!

Great mix. I jumped to another link on the Tommy Emmanuel page...Here he is with Phil Emmanuel playing an Irish / Scottish medley. Their synchronization is impeccable.
