I love grocery shopping.
This seems surprising considering that since I spent countless high school days and college vacations in a grocery store as your friendly, local check-out girl. As it turned out, I actually liked that job. The combination of food and shooting the shit suited me. Go figure.
So, you can imagine my elation when I discovered that the new Whole Foods in Lincoln Park combines three of my loves: food, shooting the shit and drinking wine. Yes, wine! I could honestly spend hours in this place. And my whole paycheck. Wait, I think I’ve done both.
Did I mention you can pair a cheese flight with your wine flight at this wine bar within a supermarket?
I should mention that there’s also a coffee bar, a bar that serves beer and an incredible food court. Speaking of the food court…
Now do you see why it’s easy to spend hours in this place? If I had the time and the cash, I’d spend every weekend in this organic mecca. It’s like dying and going to food and beverage heaven.
