The Uncork Illinois Wine Festival held each June in Downtown Oak Park will not happen this year. Cancelled by COVID. So the Seventh Annual event will have to re-emerge in 2021 as Seventh Semi-Annual event. 

We do have a story today on page 10 about a new wine shop opening on south Marion Street. Let that ease your sorrows.

Uncork Illinois was to have been a fundraiser for the Oak Park Animal Care League. So send a few dollars to those pups and kittens.
