UPDATE: All the spots for our Bubble Hockey Tournament have been filled!
The icy stare before the faceoff. The crack of the puck on the stick. The roar of adoring fans. The marriage of power and grace. Mucking it up and grinding it out. Thrilling victory, chilling defeat. We’re talking, of course, about bubble hockey.
Binny’s and Labatt Brewing are offering you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to bring your bubble hockey skills to the table with a high-stakes tournament. Join us for this single-elimination, one-on-one bubble hockey event at Binny’s Oak Brook on April 25th. We have just 32 spots, and they
will fill quickly already filled!, so call to reserve your spot soon: (630) 861-1810. Only the best of the best will go home with our first place prize: the bubble hockey table itself.
Wait – before you click the back button, this isn’t your every day Hot Toddy. Instead of tea Bartender Angie uses pimento dram for a chai like spicy character. We don’t have a medical degree, but Angie’s Hot Toddy Pimento will cure all of your ills.
Veel Geluk, which means ‘good luck’ in Dutch, is a mix of genever from Holland and raspberry liqueur. If you’ve ever had genever you are aware it can be tough to swallow on its own. When mixed with the raspberry liquor the sweetness balances out the bitterness of the gin. Bartender Angie created this cocktail and enjoys mixing it up for her husband. Give it a try at the Lincoln Park Tasting Room, or mix one up at home.
As of late, there is an immense interest for tiki-inspired drinks. Bartender Angie came up with one that’s sure to make you feel like your toes are inches deep in the sand. It’s quite literally called Tiki Drink, and is full of all the sunshine you’ll ever need. We know what you’re thinking… bring on the mini umbrellas! (Cabana boy not included.)
