Here’s a Cinderella story. A former assistant groundskeeper is about to become the … partial owner of a Caddyshack bar in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. That’s right, folks — Bill Murray, along with his fellow five Murray brothers, is set to open and run a golf-themed sports bar just north of Chicago in the village of Rosemont. Per the local Daily Herald newspaper, the Murray clan have a verbal agreement for an 11,000-square-foot space inside of the Crowne Plaza Hotel and are now working to obtain a written lease. Potential opening dates are yet to be known as construction blueprints for the bar have yet to be submitted, but still: What a delight for lovers of 1980s sports comedy films! (And did you know that there’s also another Caddyshack establishment from the Murrays that already exists in Florida?) They really did hit a hole in one with this.
