It's a gorgeous day here in Chicago, and I'm feeling springy and awesome. I hope you are as well.
1. Last night, Bruce hosted an amazing gluten-free dining event at Da Luciano's in River Grove. I'd heard legend that this was the. best. GF Italian food in the world, and it was pretty dang delicious. I was too busy stuffing my face to take pictures, but look for a full review forthcoming. I think all I really need to say is this: gluten-free tiramisu.
2. The southwest suburbs got a little more GF last weekend when Gusteau's Gluten Free Shoppe opened in Lemont. I'll get to sit down with owner Patricia soon to talk about the amazingness that is GF takeout. They are open Tuesday-Saturday, and from my short visit last week, I can tell you that it's worth the trip out. Let's show them lots of support, southwest Chicago gluten-freers, I'd love to see this place succeed!
3. Mini-giveaway! I have a small celiac awareness prize pack - a few green ribbon awareness pins, some fun stickers and a couple of surprises. To enter, just leave a comment with your e-mail. I'll pick a winner next Thursday.
