“The Most Exotic Hinsdale Book Club” makes TVC home base!

Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting Laurie Thomson and “The Most Exotic Hinsdale Book Club!”

The Village Cellar is getting more and more studious by the week. Wine school, book club…I’ve even seen a business meeting or two being held here during the week.

Who are we kidding – the place is filled with wine, beer and great laughs; who wouldn’t want to hang out here or make TVC a satellite office?

Instead of cramming into someone’s living room, a boring office with no windows, and even worse yet – a place with no wine…

“No wine book club”


Come to The Village Cellar! I can assure you that every gathering is a success when there is wine involved!

The Most Exotic Hinsdale Book Club livened things up with chardonnay and Sancerre, great friends, and the book – Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English.

The book

Aside from sipping on wine and enjoying an amazing dessert prepared by Hinsdalean Sue Barton Liss, the group did actually talk about the book. I interrupted their light hearted conversations to snap this photo…

The Cake

The amazingly delicious cake was made by Sue Barton Liss of Hinsdale. Sue specializes in custom baking, cake and cookies, and sugar art. She also offers courses in which she teaches special baking techniques. This sounds like something I need to sign up for…

Here at TVC, you can have your cake and eat it too. The ladies were kind enough to share their cake with me. Now, I’ve had a lot of cake. I feel confident in going out on a limb and saying that this is by far one of the best that I have EVER had.


The only thing that is wrong with this picture is that my wine glass is empty.

Next time your looking for somewhere to hang out with your friends, business partners, and book club members, come to TVC!
