Is Joie de Vine, the new Andersonville wine bar, really as good as Daily Candy Chicago suggests? A taste test during the storms last night confirmed that indeed, Joie de Vine rocks. Pleasant music, fabulous decor, nice outdoor seating (when it isn't raining that is) and lots and lots and lots of luscious wines to choose from. Try the Cooper's Creek Sauv Blanc and call it an evening. (Tip: Dig the martini list too if you're not feeling grapey.)
