    My question isn't totally on topic, but this is an active thread... I am from Ohio and looking to get BCBS. I have some family in Chicago this weekend staying in Rogers Park. Where should I send them to find a couple of four packs? I told them about this store and this event, but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    the Jewel at Paulina and Milwaukee (1341 North Paulina) had multiple cases out on the floor as of a week ago. 20.99 too, which is the best price I've seen in town. Not exactly Rogers Park, so you may want to give the store a call to verify that it's still in stock before sending someone there.

    Last I saw they pulled it off of the floor, BUT if you ask they will get a 4 pack from the back.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll relay the information. If someone else has any suggestions, I think it would be better to either pm me or find another relevant thread to stop spamming up this one so much. Thanks again.

    Jewel in Wicker Park has (had earlier this week at least) plenty at this price. So I'd definitely check any Jewel just to check. If not, hell, you can find BCS at many locations. Just may pay closer to $26-$30. 'Taint hard to find.

    Binnys Facebook just posted a 10% off coupon that's only good on Black Friday.

    It specifically notes that beer is included. I'm assuming this is specifically to be used at your event, isn't it Vav?? ;)

    Fine print: "not applicable on cellar or allocated items". So most of Vav's items wouldn't qualify. Not sure what fits the definition of an allocated item. PvW 23? Bourbon County Coffee? Regular BCS? Anything with purchase limits?

    Also FYI Binny's says on their fb page that you don't have to print out the coupon, you can show it on your mobile device with the barcode/number in the lower left. Not that the coupon will apply to anything Vav is selling.

    This coupon will NOT apply to the Black Friday beers. Allocated means, in a nutshell, "Shit we dont get a lot of." So Pappy is out too. Basically, if you've seen a purchase limit, it's allocated.

    Edit: And for the record, we havent gotten our Pappy shipment yet anyway.

    Vav, from your twitter pic. the case of king henry was from the cellar or a shipment in the past couple of weeks? i ask because i heard some king henry was going to hit some distros and i want to know which truck i'm chasing. yah know, for science and all.

    edit: you just tweeted another picture with the beer of thrones/one beer to rule them all. i was referring to the picture with the u-boat.

    I don't think sarcasm is allowed in the context of hundreds of folks showing up at once seeking highly coveted items. ;)

    Why is there a line an hour (or more) before the store opens when there is absolutely no benefit in showing up early??

    Probably 50% tradition, 50% the fact there will be beers in today not raffled off.
