Have you heard of Airstream Speakeasy? It’s a cool concept: they took a vintage Airstream recreational vehicle and totally fixed it up to make “the world’s most technically advanced mobile cocktail bar.” They’re teaming up with Don Julio to bring this cocktail-centric aluminum twinkie on wheels to your neighborhood – with a special stop at Binny’s Evergreen Park.
Don Julio Ambassador Jackson Miranda will be on hand to answer questions (bring your best tequila trivia) and pour you a sample of Don Julio, both on its own and also as the base in great cocktails that that are simple enough that you can make them at home. We’ll have an engraver on hand, for your chance to get your a special bottle of Don Julio 1942 etched with your own custom message. That would make a heck of a gift. More info after the jump…

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.
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.
Join us for a special meet and greet with Shannon, the Loop Rock Girl courtesy of Labatt Blue. Stop by to grab a picture with Shannon, get an autograph and try some Labatt Blue.

Arlington Heights Binny’s
12 to 2:00pm
3 to 5:00pm
The wait is over. Now… finally… you can come inside the brand new Binny’s Beverage Depot in Evergreen Park and buy stuff. Find us at 3447 W 95th St in Evergreen Park.
So far, a lot of people have remarked that it seems strange that just a few months ago, the building was a bowling alley. About that – we love the building and didn’t want to completely forget its heritage, so we built a shrine to Bleekers, complete with 20 original bowling pins, 28 bowling balls and bowling shoes in every size from baby to Bozo.
This is important: We are so proud to introduce Binny’s to this neighborhood. As a family-owned, Chicago-based company, we are passionate about community and heritage, and that’s why we’re so excited to be in Evergreen Park. Give us a visit. Check out our store, our selection, our prices, our mountains of beverages, and most importantly, our people.
The opening of Binny’s Evergreen Park, located at 3447 W. 95th Street is almost here. Wine racks are full, the beer cooler is well stocked and the staff looks like a bunch of rockstars! What else would you expect from Binny’s Beverage Depot? Here are some snaps from today. See you on Wednesday at 9am. Trust us, it’ll be worth your time!
With less than a week until doors open, the upcoming Binny’s in Evergreen Park is a flurry of activity. Yet more wine, spirits and beer arrive every day, and we have to sort it all, build displays and stock it to shelves. Nobody even has enough time to pose for proper photographs for our website. But somehow they have enough time to make comments like, “Hey jerk! Put down that camera and get to work.”
We’ll see you next week at Binny’s in Evergreen Park when we finally open the doors to the public. And maybe a week or two after that, store manager Jeff Bogdan can finally get some rest. (Pic of a tired Jeff Bogdan after the jump.)
