Hello Snooth!

Posted by Urbanjoe, May 22, 2013.

My name is Joseph and I just opened Paired Wine Co at 3325 N Halsted Street. We are a great small shop with most wines under $20. We are looking to invite people into our shop, have great tastings and meet some great wine heads! Looking to support pop-up chefs and those in need of great wines. I'm a graduate of Kendall College, I love dogs and good friends that like good wine.

Joe, welcome to the Snooth Forum.  

I went to your website and can see that there is some use there for individuals who have no idea where Halsted Street is.  It is not uncommon for people to come onto this board and ask for food/wine pairings.  I hope that you jump in and help out with such requests.  And by that I mean please respond with something more that "Visit my website."

I see that some of your web pages are incomplete.  Since it is still a work in progress, I do not feel bad about suggesting that you go back and check your spelling of "Barolo."

Thanks for your response. for those that don't know (or care) where Halsted is we've included a map on our website. It can be found here!hours--location/c4jy

We're in Chicago so most of your current community will probably never have the chance to see us in person. But for those coming to Chicago for PRIDE weekend or Market Days (these event draw hunderds of thousands) then our little map may become useful.

I searched my site for the mispelling of Barolo and I can't seem to find it. Our website is for sure a work in progress, we mainly use it for the pairing tool in the store. People get a kick out of being interactive. So kindly let me know where you found my spelling errors so I can quickly fix it.

Maybe this site can have a spell check on it for us mispellers! :)

Thanks for the response. I look forward to learning from all the wonderful wine folks out there.

Joe, I was using your Pairing Tool, which, I agree, is fun and easy to use.  I saw some pairings that suggested Barolo and spelled it Barollo.  Here, for example.  At least I assume that the intent was to suggest Barolo.  Is there a Barollo wine? :-)

welcome Urbanjoe,

wow! useful tool, It was interesting to know pairing for sushi :)

thanks, added bookmark.

...but it works funny in FireFox - buttons go far away to the right side.

Love your wine/food pairing tool. I was surprised not to see the Galician wines paired with shellfish. You did mention a close cousin Vinho Verde, but there are some great Albariños and Godellos, from that North Western Spanish Region famous for their shellfish and according to Robert Parker producers of the best Spanish whites.

Wine is the the true catalyst of conviviality, and I commend anyone who wants to focus on affordability.  There are indeed bargains to be had - especially out your way (I am in Canada which still appears to follow the sentiment that having fun is a sin - except for members of the Senate - not to be confused with the US Senate which is at least elected).

Best to you, Man.
