How "bad" is the Alinea wine list?

Did the grand tour with wine pairings on Friday and thought the pairings were excellent, really the only way to go.

One lunch, one dinner in Chicago - Avec, Blackbird or Green Zebra?

I just returned from a long weekend in Chicago and would definitely recommend Blackbird and especially Avec. Speciifially,the cheese salad, cuttlefish, bouillabaisse, "fried chicken" , sturgeon and banana dessert at Blackbird and the cobia, eggplant crostini, cauliflower salad and the stuffed dates at Avec. Would take a pass on Cafe Spaggia, not bad, but nothing special and Sepia, beautiful room and great service, but again nothing special food wise.
You may want to consider The Lounge at L2O for dinner. Not much of a lounge (3 tables), but based solely on food and service it was very good. would pass on the Octopus though.

Long Weekend in Chicago?

Willl be Chicago over Labour Day Weekend, already have Alnea booked, will probably hit Avec/Blackbird, North Pond, and Sepia but looking for other option. Not looking for ethnic or molecular, thinking of Brown Trout, The Gage or Boka. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Where Do I Get Knives Sharpened? - MTL

I found Guillame at L'Emouleur through this post and took my MAC knives in for sharpening. He did a great job, I woould highly recommend him. Great service as well, I was in town for a couple of days, so he dropped them off (after sharpening) at my hotel to save treking up to his place to pick them up.
