Coming To A Binny's Near You; Brett Pontoni's Whiskey Roadshow.
I guess if you have 24 stores, as Binny's now does, it's a big deal when the chain's whiskey buyer comes out to visit one of them.
His name is Brett Pontoni and you've talked to him if you've ever called Binny's Whiskey Hotline (888-817-5898). Pontoni's job is to talk whiskey, sample whiskey, buy whiskey, write about whiskey, and select exclusive barrels of whiskey. He knows his stuff.
The Brett Pontoni personal appearances tour is called the Whiskey Roadshow. It begins this Friday at Binny's South Loop and continues Saturday at the Naperville store. He'll be pouring his personal favorites during these events. Reservations are suggested.
For a complete schedule go to the events page on Binny's web site.
