Covid got you down? Wishing you were in France? Enjoy this relaxing staycation with a pet-friendly (35 lbs max) 2-night stay at Hyatt Place Chicago/Wicker Park. Treat yourself to dine-in or delivery with a $100 gift card to French Bistro Mon Ami Gabi and finish the night with a very special nightcap of two bottles of French wine, a full-bodied 2009 and a vibrant 2016 bottle of Chateau d'Issan, from the personal collection of a long time OTAT supporter. Chateau d'Issan castle and winery in the Margaux appellation is one of the 14 'third growths' in the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification. But the chateau's history reaches back to the 12th century when d'Issan's wine was reportedly served at the wedding of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henri Plantagenet, future king of England. Drink now or hold on to the wine for a special occasion as they'll be aging and delicious for the next 20 years!
