    Best Binny's for Bourbon?

    Driving down to Chicago this weekend & would love input on which Binny's location stocks the best selection.

    Thanks in advance!

    You need to slow down, Mat! You're in WAAY to many places lately. Never been, but from what I've read, the South Loop store is loaded.

    BTW, Dawg RB's are dropping like flies. The new freshman kid, who they are expecting to be the next Herschel will probably be starting. The rest of the "Dream Team" freshman class will be getting a lot of time, too. Just around the corner.

    Which one? Almost any one beats what I've seen that we got here.

    Have some fun down there!

    The south loop location on Jefferson has a great selection.

    Slow down? Joe, for me this IS slowed down. Compared to when I had the winery, I'm positively retired.

    I know...it's sad to see our Dawgs. Richt & his staff are great at recruiting on-field talent. It's what they do OFF the field that they don't seem to have a 'radar' for.

    So, is 'East of the Big Chicken' Roswell by chance?

    I'll have to look him up. Used to buy whiskey at that location when it was a Sam's. They sold my wines there, and I always seemed to buy more than I sold.

    From the man himself. Talk about service.

    Remember that just because you don't see something at the South Loop location doesn't mean that they don't have it...just ask Joe! Have a great time...Joe's a fantastic host!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!
