    Hello from Chicago

    Hello All,
    Just wanted to say hello and Thank you to all. I really love this site. Tons of information and great people enjoying my favorite thing.... Bourbon! I'm lucky enough to have tried numerous bourbons and scotches. However, the more I learn, the more I realize that I know very little. You guy's and gal's are great to learn with. I look forward to learning, sharing, and of course drinking more Bourbon. Thanks again for all the information. I look forward to jumping into some threads.
    Joe

    Re: Hello from Chicago

    Hi Joe, Welcome to SB. Finally, a new member from Illinois! Thought those Michigan guys were gonna over run us all. You came to the right place. Like I have said to many new members, you'll have some fun, meet some great people, and learn a thing or two along the way. Learning about bourbon is fun, interesting, and what I call expansive. By expansive, I mean you learn one thing, and it leads to something else, and something else, and something else..... etc. Kinda like a Christmas tree from the top down. It keeps getting larger and branches out more the farther you get into it. It can be a little frustrating sometimes. Especially if you have a memory like mine. Hope you enjoy yourself. Looking forward to your posts. Joe (the Rockford one )

    Joe,

    Welcome to the group!

    A glance at your public profile reveals that you are in the booze biz. Although blatant advertising is frowned on here, I'd bet the admins wouldn't object if you were to mention your place of employment. Then again, maybe you'd rather not, and that's OK.

    You have an eye-catching ID. Is "pollito" Spanish for "little chicken"?

    Welcome to SB, Joe! I'd refer you to my favorite Chicago area liquor retailer, but I think you're already familiar with it.

    I'm looking forward to your contributions.

    Re: Hello from Chicago

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. "Pollito" is indeed spanish for Little Chicken. I've got a band called "The Lost Pollitos' . I happen to find myself working in the Biz. I work with Brett at Binnys in the south loop. Don't worry, no advertising from me. Just here for discussion and learning. Jono, I'm always down for tasting with other bourbon lovers.

    Hear, hear! Even though I was only an infrequent customer back in my California days, Brett(?) always responded promptly to my inquiries and personally handled my orders on occasion when the online system went awry.
