Bill Murray Plans to Open a ‘Caddyshack’-Themed Bar Near Chicago 

Fore! Billy Murray and his brothers have plans to open a Caddyshack-themed restaurant and bar outside Chicago in the coming months.

This would be the second establishment in this wacky golf-themed chain. A Murray Bros. Caddyshack Bar & Grill was opened in St. Augustine, Fla. in 2001.

The Daily Herald reports:

The bar would be within the Crowne Plaza hotel at River Road and Balmoral Avenue, across the street from the Rosemont Theatre box office, according to Mayor Brad Stephens.

The Murrays have a verbal agreement for an 11,000-square-foot space inside the hotel and are now working to get a written lease, Stephens said.

Blueprints for the restaurant would have to be submitted for village review before construction could begin. It’s still unknown when that might occur.

Important question: Will Carl Speckler himself drop by for the opening?!
