Look at me now

New quarter, new you. As we adjust to spring quarter, we've seen some new cuts, colors and packs. Did y'all make a goal of looking fresh this spring?

We've heard many of you are doing inspirational cleanses and of course, after Friday's issue, signing up for Chicago races, but what about the rest of us that are ready to cut loose? Read on for the in's and out's of TJ's wine, the #bschoolrich way to stay sane on a Monday.

Flakes of wintery white

Positivity is a mindset, right? We've reached the juncture where even the Chicago natives are annoyed with winter. Maybe we can embrace today's snow by thinking of this as the last time to wear our favorite beanie/jacket/gloves/scarf. Yep... still not working. See you out there in today's delightful high of 37°F (3°C). 

A Manic Monday

We saw you all aimlessly milling around the Hub last week. This week's programming schedule will give you something more to talk about than your spring classes. Ally Week kicks off with a strong start.

  • Lock up locker room talk. The Manbassadors are hosting Lawler King, CEO of League of Allies, for an hour long workshop that explores how to confront gender bias in the workplace. (12:15 p.m., 1120)
  • Be safe out there. Get trained up for KWEST with a safety and securities training over lunch or in the evening. (12:15 p.m. or 5:15 p.m., 1110)
  • Two lucky winners. Hear how you can apply for $20K investment from Pritzker Group through the Venture Fellows Program. Two teams receive funding and support over the summer for their venture. (12:15 p.m. L129)
  • Nota Bene Banks. Graduating students can hear Dean Banks share the 'greatest hits' from his leadership talks as a part of the Nota Bene series (5:15 p.m., White Auditorium). 

While not wine-related, this is a fabulous beverage photo and we felt like it could reasonably be shared in this section of Daybreak. Photo cred: Carlos Cruz

Wine and I'm feeling fine.

Despite our new proximity to Target, many of us are still #TJsloyal. For those that are considering moving on to neighboring territory, consider the wine you are very definitely missing out on. We have curated a list of our favorite deals at the TJs wine counter to keep you grounded:

  • Don't mind this gap: Yes way, to this $14 Wind Gap rose. It might not be warm outside, but warm is just a mindset with this chilling in your fridge. Pair with crackers and cheese for the ultimate unwind after a long three hour class.
  • Go bubbly: Enjoy the finer things in life with Louise de Estree. We love being fancy on a budget here at Kellogg and this $8 "champagne-esque" wine does the trick. Don't let your brilliance bubble up to your head. 
  • A mind-boggling deal: Try Bogle, the Daybreak team's preferred Monday night wine. It's smooth and yummy, best paired with The Bachelor or Vanderpump Rules. Good in red blend, cab sav and pinot noir (but nobody drinks Merlot, obvi). 
  • Buck Chuck: We've all heard this is a deal, but actually DO NOT drink Two Buck Chuck. It's rarely $2 at this point and certainly not worth the hangover (even on a Wednesday). 

Looking for the real deal? Cork & Screw is hosting their annual Northern California Wine weekend May 10-13 and good news, there is still space! This year the trip will explore the undiscovered Russian River Valley (famous for pinot) and have access to the beautiful river and redwood tree scenery. Does this sound divine? Or you have enough FOMO to take action? Learn more and of course, sign up!
