Chicagoist Podcast 3/23 - Booze! Glorious Booze!

jarvisliquors032309.jpg This in-between-seasons non-winter and non-spring bullshit tends to get us down, and we tend to treat our self-diagnosed Seasonal Affective Disorder with liberal quantities of intoxicants. So we figured it'd make sense for us to talk about liquor this week.

We've been curious about North Shore Distillery, as we'd be curious about anyone with the wherewithall to produce Absinthe (in addition to their vodkas, gins and aquavits). We spoke with Sonja Kassebaum from Northshore to discuss everything from local firecodes to how many arms it takes to wrap around their still, and much more booze-related conversation.

We also checked in with Rachel Driver with Lush Wine and Spirits to find out a little more about the upcoming Whiskyfest as well as the plans they're putting together at Lush. Here's a hint - they're giving away liquor. Who wouldn't be interested in that?

As always, please subscribe to this free hunk of entertainment either through iTunes or through our RSS feed. You pick which one works better for you - and if we believe our stats, which one of you is listening via Zune? Even Winamp still has some fans out there as well, which is good to hear. Anyways, in the future we'll be talking all things baseball as well as SXSW with Lizz, so keep an eye out for those - but until then, we thank you kindly for your auditory attention.
