Throughout Chicago and the Chicagoland area, Binnys is the big name for warehouse liquor stores. Most also have nice, big humidors. Their selection of cigars is akin to their selection of quality beers...more than you could imagine in one place and the choices are amazing.

I was greeted by an employee whose job title was "cigar specialist". He was a wealth of knowledge and knew everything I asked about and listened to what I was in the mood for and made some excellent recommendations. He gave me a business card, but I didn't keep it and I wish I would have.

A visit to Binnys is always great because of their excellent selection of beer and other alcohol and also their fine selection of cigars and cigar accessories.

Boycott Binny's give your money to local retailers. Find a ma & pa shop and support their efforts. Corporations are wonderful, but local shops are the best. They are what makes America great.

I'm a HUGE supporter of local B&M's (including you Kenny! I love your store man and need to get up there again soon with my new hookah!) but I also love shopping for cigars at Binny's Honesty I've found stuff that I never would have anywhere else (Oliva blue and Liberty on super-sale prices). If I'm picking up some beer or liquor I'll probably buy a cigar or two as well for the drive back to school.

That being said, if I dont need/want any beer, the B&M will get my money!

Binnys is nice at times for finding something that others don't have... La Riqueza Kenny!!! :) Other then that I pretty much go to two locals. However like Chris, if I am in Binnys for a bottle of something it's damn hard to not walk out with a few sticks :)

I'd also like to add that the Binny's on Clark, Halsted and Barry in Chicago is the only place I've found that sells Boveda packets. Their cigar specialist is also really nice and she's blunt and straight up. She won't try to upsell you or even let you upsell yourself. ;)
