Oh, Olive! opens Lincoln Park location
Olive oil is oft thought to be the key to a long life—picture a wrinkly Greek woman well into her 90s. Oh, Olive! will open its fourth location this weekend in Lincoln Park, boasting 28 varieties of extra-virgin olive oils. Oils from near (California) and far (Tunisia) are centerstage, but an assortment of teas, vinegars, pastas, and spices are also offered. Owners Sandy Schuenemann and Mary Koval bring the Olive Oil Tasting Room and Emporium to a garden-level shop, with a sky painted on the ceiling and vines and murals of country scenes painted on the walls. During the grand opening this weekend, there will be free tastings of oils, vinegars and teas, as well as appetizers and desserts made from them. Indulge if only for the sake of longevity.
Oh, Olive!'s (904 W Armitage, 773-897-7881, oo2go.com) grand opening will be held Friday, June 22 thru Sunday, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
