Wine Bar/Shop with craft beer for sale

Newly opened wine bar/shop with craft beer and lite food menu is available for sale in the near west suburbs. Great decor/build-out with reviews comparing us to tasting rooms in Napa and Sonoma.

Other business interests are taking a turn and I can no longer push this venture further in it's positive direction. Near break-even in first 6 months and now things are starting to click with various parties, gift baskets for the holidays and wine maker dinners.

Please email me if you have any interest. This can be structured several ways... ie. complete buy out of all assets, sublease only, partnership, etc.

Take care.

Milan suggestions needed

We are looking for an nice (moderate price) place to eat in Milan on July 4th. We are staying between Parco Sempione and Giradini Pubblici Indro Montanelli (Una Hotel Century). We are an extended family of nine with native Italian speakers looking for an exceptional (considering budget) family experience in Milan for a family members birthday celebration on our trip to Italy and the Med.

We will have rental cars but prefer to use a taxi or walk if possible.

Need pre-dinner suggestions for tonight

We are headed to Ambria at 8:30 for dinner. Any ideas for pre-dinner activities? Was thinking of carriage ride but wondering what else might be romantic (14th anniversary).
