It's apparently a one-off for now, in the great whiskey mecca of Schaumburg, Illinois. Here is a review from the Chicago Sun-Times. Clearly, it's a suburban, chain-ready 'casual dining' concept. That's probably all you need to know. Like Thad, I worry that bourbon's big moment has peaked, yet there is also a lot of evidence that it still has a long way to go. You've already been there, Thad, but it's like pulling teeth to get you and your bride into the city. What does that tell you?

I like that it's close to Ikea.
