This Yamakazi 18 year is insane. Its been matured in casks made from rare mizunara oak. Only found in a few parts of Japan, mizunara is a notoriously difficult type of wood to work with. This was made to a be dramatic, unforgettable expression - and it definitely succeeds in that 😎🥃🤤

The gift cert that I bought for Growling rabbit is no longer in business. What is the best way to exchange this for another certificate?
$15 off a $50 gift certificate to Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro right now at Chicago Independents. Click through, and pick one up, dine and drink on the cheap tonight. Only 13 of them for sale!
It's that time again...buy one of our gift certificates from Chicago Independents in their quarterly sale and you can knock $15 off your next bar tab, when you're in listening to Jay Langston tonight, eating fish & chips tomorrow, or watching GAA this weekend. Basically it's like we're paying you to come out and have fun. Only 13 of them are available through this weekend. #sale #fun
The 1 day 1/2 Price sale over at Chicago Independents is today! Just 5 of our gift certificates are still up. Click through and pick one up and snag $50 worth of food and drink for $25 to spend on World Cup viewing this weekend.
Reminder, Chicago Independents still has a couple of our gift certificates for sale on their site at $35 for a $50 cert. You should really snap those up before the weekend.
We still have just a few discounted gift certificates left at Chicago Independents. Snap them up before they are gone and brunch with us this weekend!
We have just 11 more discounted gift certificates for sale at Chicago Independents. $15 off a $50 gift certificate means you get $50 worth of food and drink for just $35! Snap them up before they are gone! Chicago Independents supports small independently owned restaurants, so maybe pick up one for The Radler, Volo Restaurant Wine Bar, Big Bricks, Smoque BBQ, or The Biscuit Man while you are there! https://chicagoindependents.instagift.com/discount-sale
Chicago Independents​ is having another one of their sales, and lucky for you, we're members! That means you can get gift certificates for Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, and a couple of dozen really great, independently owned Chicago restaurants for cheap! Ours get you $15 off $50 worth of food and drinks. What a deal, and you get to support an organization that's looking out for other small independent restaurants in the city.
This week is Chicago Independents Restaurant week. Great locally owned, independent restaurants throughout the city are offering a $33 3 course tasting menu, organized by Chicago Independents. You can go to their site and pick up a discounted gift certificate to a whole range of great places, while you're at it.
We've just a couple of gift certificates left at Chicago Independents. They are having a one day sale, so snap them up for half price, while they last, maybe pick one up for another great independently owned Chicago business while you're there.
Want to try out some of our new dishes? Chicago Independents is having a 1/2 off sale, today only, and they still have a few gift certificates to our very establishment. Pick one up, before they are gone and try some new grub at 1/2 price, also they support independent restaurants in your neighborhood, so feel good about yourself in the process.
Could anyone recommend a used restaurant supplier or supply store? Or is anyone selling? I am looking for any and all goods; refrigeration, plates, pots and pans...everything. Thanks
