Binny's, under the supervision of Brett Pontoni, will host the World of Whisky on March 31, 2009 at its South Loop Location on Jefferson just north of Roosevelt. At $50 with a Binny's card, this event is a sell out. It is also a cheap and easy opportunity to taste what is available in Single Malt Scotch. Recommendation: make a reservation now!
Some recommendations before, at and after event: eat first, drink water, and toss in the buckets what you think you don't like as much. Also, consider the CTA No. 12 Roosevelt Bus West/East to and from the Roosevelt Red line Stop, among other Public Transportation options. The Red line takes you directly to/from the Howard Terminal. For more info go to www.binnys.com. Consider Manny's Deli across the street from Binny's. Bring a friend and you get a $9.95 discount from Manny's if you have a WBEZ card.
The Malt Advocate Event may prove repetitious and double or triple the price.
