    Hey there, honey. Mama's looking for some scotch. Something smoky. I don't want to buy shitloads of bottles and end up not liking them. Are there any bars in Chicagoland that are to scotch like Scofflaw is to gin?

    Thanks, you're a doll.

    Fountainhead. Great selection. They also have a store and you can try before you buy.

    Great call -- and as I was just there last night -- I'd also add their sister bar, Bar on Buena, which has a very nice Scotch selection as well. And I have to say that at both places the staff is a bit friendlier than at Delilah's.

    Love that they have a list of the scotches with the little legend next to each one. 7 pages! Yowza yowza! Friday's going to be delightful.

    Mamma needs to schlep her-self over to Trader Joes,
    and get a bottle of the very affordable Lismore (more commonly avail.@ Lincoln Avenue Store
    than the Roosevelt/Wabash Avenue location...
    for under $20.00 you will not find a better Speyside dram to entice yer tounge.
    Lismore is officially- a "wee"-lad, younger than most of the nicer Single Malts
    (my current favorite is The Balvenie -Doublewood, also sold at TJ's for $58.00 a bottle)

    Lemme know how ya like it!

    Mama went to Twisted Spoke yesterday to take advantage of the 1/2 Price Deal (thank you Wimperoo!) Three scotches and guac for $42 including tip, not bad. According to Ruby (I talked to her via FB), they have 167 scotches. When you go in they give you a little catalog. Nifty!
