Aperitivo 'happy hour' at Fig & Olive


Chicago summers are short, so being outdoors and enjoying the warm weather is a must. I always try to dine or drink alfresco. One of my favorite patios in the Chicago's Gold Coast area is Fig & Olive.  Everyday, from 4 - 7 pm, they host a wonderful "apertivo" hour. When you order a signature cocktail or a glass of wine, you get a FREE fig & olive tasting plate!  Its such a great deal.  I love to dress up, put on my heels and head there with my girlfriends for a wonderful way to start the evening.
