Mini Liquor Bottles

Hello

We will be taking a trip out East next week. I would like to find a liquor store here in Chicago that sells mini liquor bottles. The kind one gets on a flight. Any suggestions? I thought Binnys, but havent had a chance to check them out yet.

Thanks in advance!

Unless it changed recently the mini bottles are illegal in the city. Binny's sells them in suburban locations. I asked at one once because I could never find them in the city and the store manager told me they were illegal to sell.

Binny's sells small bottles but not the mini size you get on the airplane

It might be a suburban/city issue. The Binny's I saw them at was in the burbs.

This city sure does have its share of random/odd laws.

This is a new one for me.

I had kind of forgot about them and then I stopped at a gas station in Wisconsin and they had them right on the counter where you pay and I was a bit shocked lol

I guess we do have a few strange laws

Wes and msmejkal are right again; You can't buy them in the city and they aren't worth driving 20 miles to find in the 'burbs. Perhaps you have to pack them with you from Minneapolis.

I tried to get some for Christmas stockings this year and was told they are illegal in the city; you can get half pint bottles, but not those mini bottles like they have on airplanes.
