Also look for the recently released 167th Edition of Krug Grande Cuvée as well as Krug’s new Magnums and Jéroboams—a true luxury experience. These limited quantity bottles are extremely rare so grab them while you can. For more information, visit krug.com.
Belden on Westminster
Joanne Walgreen, founder of Belden Interiors (named for the Chicago street where Walgreen opened her first office space), was born with an innate instinct for designing spaces on land, in the air, and at sea. After 20 years in the industry, opening a studio and showroom in historic downtown Lake Forest was the logical next step. Belden Interior’s new Westminster Avenue location is a sight to be seen—highlighting Walgreen’s expertise with color, pattern, and light. The new showroom also offers accessories from furniture to lighting to the perfect hostess gifts for purchase. “We’ve worked very hard to find one-of-a-kind items that aren’t available anywhere else on the North Shore,” Walgreen says. “Our goal is to make every client space special—our studio and showroom is no different.” Check it out for yourself by visiting 207 E. Westminster Avenue, Suite 100, Lake Forest, 224-880-5999, beldeninteriors.net.
After a long winter, Lake Bluff Park District is getting ready to celebrate the summer season with its first annual Go Color Lake Bluff 5K run, 3K walk, and food festival. Color runs—where runners are doused from shoulder to toe in different colors at each kilometer—have been gaining popularity, not just on college campuses but in more than 100 U.S. cities and more than 50 countries around the world. The Lake Bluff untimed event emphasizes fun over competition with the goal of bringing together the community as part of the Lake Bluff Park District’s ongoing GO initiative promoting healthy lifestyles. Activities kick off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 22 at the Lake Bluff Metra parking lot. The run/walk will travel north on the Robert McClory Bike Path, where participants will receive a different color at a total of six color stations. At the finish, participants and others are invited to celebrate at an after party in the Metra lot. Those wishing to participate are encouraged to register as soon as possible as there is a maximum number of 300 runners/walkers allowed on this course. Sign up by visiting lakebluffparks.org/go-color/.
