  1. Anyone in the NW burbs, check out Cardinal liquors in Norridge. I nabbed 2 bottles at 14.99 a piece. Steal!

    On tap at Maria's per Beer Menus. I just called and talked to a guy who implied that they were waiting on a barrel to arrive. Then he checks the taps and goes "oh man those bastards tapped it last night!" Ha! They're supposed to open at 2 but he said they might open early due to a Sox game.

    i thought their twitter said they tapped it on friday night, late night. i would have figured it was done by now. they also have devil dancer singles for 7.99. in house.

    Right you are. The guy I talked to may not have been a bartender.

    Wish I could make it down, but the way traffic looks right now, it would be over an hour each way from the N suburbs. Not quite worth it for a beer had two days ago at Local Option. Might check back this evening to see if it's still pouring.

    You could come up with a lame excuse to get out of the house for 45 mins (we're almost out of milk!) But if she can relate to enjoying a delicious and hard-to-find BA stout, perhaps honesty is worth a shot. :D

    ...and here I am at Maria's, of course. It's still on.

    Nice. I stopped by at five. Definitely on top. Each had a pour. Place was quiet and no one else was drinking. Should be there tomorrow as well.
