    rough night out

    Imagine my surprise when stopping by a restaurant for a late dinner and seeing this:




    Oh my!
    I ask the waitress for WLW & Vintage 17 to start.
    Awhile later she returns to double-check what I ordered.
    Ten minutes later she returns and informs me they have neither, but the bartender has offered some recommendations that are similar to what I ordered: Knob Creek Single Barrel & Angel's Envy Rye.
    I order Vintage 21
    no.
    Eagle Rare 17 (top of the menu)
    nope.
    Sazerac 18
    no...
    WT12
    Yes!
    Whew!
    Oh.
    She brought me a glass of WT81...

    Oh boy. We Have places like that around here, why they even bother with the full menu I'll never know. Tried to get ETL at a place recently, out, ended up with Rock Hill Farms. They did have Pappy 20 for $100 a pour. I passed.

    Actually those are good prices but only if they have them in stock.

    The prices are the most likely reason they aren't in stock.

    my thoughts exactly... those are phenomenal prices. I've seen other chicago bars that have had them in stock, be 3x the prices here, which is not exactly worth it to me and why it's in stock.

    Wonder why WT 81 is more than WT 101.

    Cause they actually have a bottle of the 81.

    Yeah, it would be nice if they would update their menu.
