How To Spend Money Wisely

alphanumeric | Feb 19, 2012 01:50 PM

Hello Chowhounders, this is my first post and I've got a question or two (so bear with me):

First off, I'd like to express my gratitude toward EvergreenDan, JMF, davis_sq_pro, et al. for your contributions. I've frequently consulted the Chowhound Spirits board and your collective wealth of knowledge. Although not technically a question before, it is now: Thank you?

Secondly, does anyone know the best regional liquor stores for the Chicagoland area? I gravitate toward Binny's, but are there any other/better* stores around?
(better=wider/different selection [Peychaud's?], competitive prices)

And I guess lastly, what are your favorite bottles (that are relatively common and under $100)? Mine would be a Talisker Distiller's Edition and Sazerac 6 y.o., along with most gins.
