This is for Chicago folks mostly. Someone recently asked me if I knew what happened to Joseph Congiusti (Joe C.), the longtime whiskey buyer at Sam's. I didn't, but now I do. He has joined rival Binny's, a chain of 10 Chicago-area stores, as their spirits specialist. You can reach him at joec@binnys.com.
