A view of the moon from wine country

Flying Leap Vineyards is taking a giant leap to the moon on Friday.

The Elgin winery is bringing two of the region’s finest astronomers with their high-powered telescopes to offer folks a view of the night sky.

The event from 6 to 9 p.m. will include wine tastings and snacks. The cost is $40 for adults, free for children under 12. Flying Leap Vineyards is at 342 Elgin Road in Elgin.

Just in time
for baseball season

Acacia Real Food & Cocktails is thousands of miles away from Chicago, but the Foothills restaurant is bringing Chicago to the desert.

Acacia is now serving a classic Chicago hot dog — an authentic all-beef Vienna weiner snuggled in a steamed poppyseed bun with sliced pickles, tomatoes, “glow in the dark” relish, mustard, onion, celery salt and sport peppers.

You can get it on the bar menu for $6. It’s $4 on the days when the Chicago Cubs are playing. Acacia is at 3001 E. Skyline Drive.  Details: 232-0101.
