Southport Grocery really gets us. For all of us multitasking like mad this time of year, the Lakeview shop has put out a last-minute gift guide that will help us knock out grocery and holiday shopping (ok, and a wine run) at once. And these ideas go far beyond festive muffin baskets.
The gift suggestions are divided into categories for men, pasta fanatics, local-vores, and chocolate fans, and ideas range from soft gingerbread cookies by Dough Dough Bird Bakery to bubbly wines from Illinois Sparkling Company. And, there's always this: the store can ship out overnight boxes of its famous cupcakes.
