Celebrate One More Hour of Sunlight

Farmerie 58 and The Cholive host an event to honor Daylight Savings Time

It's undoubtedly been a long winter (aren't they all?). But a sure sign of spring occurs this weekend -- the long-awaited return of Daylight Savings Time (hooray!). Celebrate the special occasion at "SociaLIGHT," an event hosted by River North restaurant Farmerie 58 and Milwaukee-based gourmet chocolate company The Cholive, on Monday, March 9.

The seasonally focused Farmerie 58 is also commemorating the unofficial switch from dark to light martinis with a specialty cocktail to be served at the party. "Nuts and Berries" features Frangelico and a chocolate truffle drink accessory created by The Cholive ($7). The restaurant will also roll out its spring martini list that evening -- another indication that warmer weather is on its way.

"SociaLIGHT" takes place at Farmerie 58 (58 E. Ontario St., 312-440-1818) from 5-7PM. Just think, it will still be light out when you leave!
