The Tasting Room on Randolph has an award-winning wine list that is easily one of the most extensive in Chicago.  The West Loop space is very unique as well: exposed ducts and brickwork hearken to the building’s previous incarnation as a factory in the warehouse district and feature walls of artwork by local artists.  The upstairs has large windows which overlook tree-lined Randolph Street and offer spectacular views of the Chicago skyline.

  • At the conclusion of the event, all guests are welcome to take a seat in the Tasting Room and continue to enjoy 50% off all wines by the glass!
  • Please feel free to invite friends, colleagues, etc. to this event!

For questions, please email Margo Rocklin,AFLSE Chicago chapter leader, at:

Transportation: The Ashland/Lake Pink Line El stop is a 5-minute walk from the venue.  The Tasting Room also offers 15 spaces in a small private lot on the West side of the main entrance. There is also ample street parking on Randolph, which does not require permits or the use of parking meters.

Update!  Thank you to everyone who supported the recent fundraising efforts for Link Community Development at our January speaker event featuring David Hale.  With these funds our AFLSE Chapter is sponsoring the Kuntenase Primary School, Bosomtwe District in the Ashanti Region in Ghana, and the Duleo Hawora School in Ethiopia through 2011.  Our gift enables Link Community Development to provide urgent support to both schools including essential training for principals, teachers and local authorities to guide long-term improvement plans for learning and health challenges as well as district and national policy.
