Private dining igloos are one of the most wonderful things to come out of the covid pandemic. Looks like a great night ahead and the view is spectacular.

Restaurants throughout Chicagoland found a fantastic way to generate business during the cold months as we entered the Winter of 2020. Covid showed zero signs of allowing restaurants to fill their tables inside, something very creative was needed or these places would be closed for good.

The first place I saw these heated dine-in igloos was a place along the Chicago river. I remember thinking of how much fun it would be to go, but we never did.

Here's our chance to try an Igloo Date Night

One of Rockford's coolest restaurants recently relocated as its former space is now the Rockford Casino, the Hard Rock Casino's 'opening act'.

Alchemy has relocated to Aldeen Golf Club at 1902 Reid Farm Road in Rockford. Besides the delicious menu and some of the most amazing cocktails, Alchemy also has some beautiful landscape views.

The view looking down the 18th fairway at Aldeen is breathtaking. Imagine how beautiful it will look covered in snow with hundreds of twinkling lights all around.

Put Alchemy on your list of places you must get to this winter. There is a brand new menu debuting this winter and also some favorites are returning. To get set up in your heated igloo you'll need to call ahead and reserve one. Call Alchemy at 815-987-1662.

This house is a showcase for creative architecture, but it also gives me some strange vibes. It's hard to fake 'not being home' when a random visitor stops by.
