It’s been a fun couple of weeks with appearances from Chicago all stars. The amount of community outreach and support at our new location in Evergreen Park has been more outstanding than we could ever imagine. You have all made the last two weeks unforgettable for all of us here at Binny’s. Link to photo albums after the jump.
Everyone knows the classic cocktail Kir. It’s a mix of sparkling wine and raspberry liquor such as Chambord. Use Champagne and you have a Kir Royale. We are taking it a step further with the inclusion of one of our favorite herbal liquors, St. Germain Edelflower. Dan Culen, our mixology enthusiast at Willowbrook Binny’s added St. Germain because the herbal liquor adds a bit of sweetness to the cocktail. Not only is it a signature drink for the holidays, but it’s easy to make and sure to impress your friends.
What do you do with your recycled corks, wine bottles and beer caps? Here at Binny’s, we craft holiday decorations with ours! Check out our top three holiday crafts after the jump, plus more through our Tinsel and Glitter Galore Pinterest Board.

If you’re a fan of Small Town Brewery, you already know that you can’t purchase their liquid gold in anything but a keg. That is until now. The Wauconda brewery is releasing a few cases of Not Your Father’s 10% Root Beer in bottles for the first time in Illinois. The bottles will only be available at Binny’s in Algonquin that evening. We expect to see more at all of the stores in 2014. These few cases are expected to sell out quick, so get there early.
If you’ve been to any of the Grand Opening week events at Binny’s Evergreen Park, hopefully you’ve noticed the high level of excitement like we have. We feel honored to have all stars like Dan Hampton, Ben Smith, Mike Ditka and Mayor James Sexton helping us celebrate.
Another group of all-stars that have inspired all of us is Christmas Without Cancer. This organization’s mission is far beyond inspiring. With their drive, energy and goal in mind, these volunteers are able to provide holiday gifts, as well as basic necessities to local families such as gift cards for gasoline and groceries. Don’t be fooled by the name, though. They work all year round to help as many families as possible. They know that cancer doesn’t only affect the patient, but the entire family. We showed our support for this community organization with the charitable gift of $10,000.
