Lion's Pride Debuts at Delilah's

Local distillery Koval will be launching their newest whiskey, Lion's Pride, this Saturday at where else but Delilah's. This new spirit is named after the distiller's son, Lion, and is the first legal whiskey distilled in Chicago since Prohibition. The whiskey is aged in new American Oak barrels.

Four varieties of Lion's Pride will be released: Oat, Rye, Dark Oat, and Dark Rye. The tasting is from 7-9pm, and the first two bottles of whiskey will be auctioned off to benefit local charities.

--Delilah's, 2771 N. Lincoln Ave. - Saturday, Nov. 6

I've tried it and it was enjoyable. One thing I can't stand about this product is the branding. Their logo was clearly made by a friend who dabbles in graphic design but isn't professional by any means (you can tell by the emboss effect and warping of the text). So our design company tried to give them a logo/label "facelift" but they wanted nothing to do with it.

You can see what Harebrained! whipped up here.

Let us know what you think.

A Garden Party at Rick Bayless' House

By Judy Wu

I was using Rick Bayless' restroom, I mused, staring up at the ceiling window that was projecting a heavenly beacon of light upon my less-than-angelic duties. I could barely distinguish Rick's faint murmurs through the orange walls, something about how...
