The Signature Room's 1st Vegan Wine Dinner: A Special Review From Me to You

The Signature Room at the 95th® hosted its first vegan wine dinner on the restaurants 96th floor. The Signature Room at the 95th®, located in the world renown John Hancock Building along the Magnificent Mile, has one of the best views of Chicago. The special guest of the evening, Jon Grant, is a long-time vegan and the winemaker for Grant Family Wines  gave a lively and energetic introduction of his wines in a manner that captured our attention as if we were going on a wine making journey with him. Angela Roma Aspito, the Director of Operations, did an excellent job of making sure that this dining gathering was a delightful and exquisite experience. There were also tasting notes during this five-course gourmet vegan dinner event prepared by Executive Chef Cardel Reid. This special multi-course vegan culinary event paired with Grant Family Wines and a magnificent view of Chicago at night made for a for an exclusive and wonderful one-night-only Chicago event. Let me recap this excellent plant-based dining experience for you.

Jon Grant Vegan Wines: 2010 Couloir "Roma's" Pinot Noir, 2012 Straight Line Sauvignon Blanc, 2011 Straight Line Syrah, 2010 Couloir "Oppenlander" Pinot Noir & 2011 Couloir "Monument Tree" Pinot Noir

    I am determined to live my best life now by making health and wellness choices that will lead to a long life. As a single-mom, lawyer, author, speaker, managing real estate broker, speaker, marathon finisher and global visionary with an active christian lifestyle who enjoys volunteering for numerous activities life gets very busy. I realize that I am usually the last item on my to-do list, if I get on it at all. I know some of you know what I mean. Well it's time to put first things first - me! I have seen and I continue to see the impact of cancer, diabetes, high-blood pressure, high-cholesterol and diabetes on family, friends and people in general. I know that I want to live a long and abundant life so I figured it was time, in the words of the late Michael Jackson, to "make that change!" So, this soul food loving sistah has decided to "go vegan" or shall I say follow a plant-based diet! How will I do it in this city of tasty temptations at each corner and a family of food lovers like myself. Well, the plan has been and will be to do it one day at a time. This is definitely a journey, a challenging one for me, that will take me on the ride of my life. I could take the ride alone, but there's no need to that when I have all of you. So, join me on this plant-based journey.
