Chicago Recently Gave Two Premier Events a Place to Call Home

Maybe nice guys finish first after all. Because while “second city” Chicago has often fallen short to New York in everything from skyscrapers to baseball games, the Windy City recently grabbed two high-profile events right out of The Big Apple’s grasp.

Signature Drink: The Silent Partner

Chicago’s Barrelhouse Flat, part tavern/part speakeasy, focuses on a casual atmosphere and massive drink menu.

The recipe was developed by Bar Manager Mark Brinker.
