A Chicago Tavern: a Goat, a Curse, and the American Dream

Date: 
2006
Volume: 
1st ed.
Abstract: 
In the summer of 1934, a baby goat fell off a truck and made its way into a tavern owned by Greek immigrant William Sianis, and an icon was born. Soon the Billy Goat Inn became a haven for police, politicians, reporters, and anyone else hungry for hospitality and the unique atmosphere "Billy Goat" Sianis had to offer. But did Billy really jinx the Cubs? When he and one of his goats were barred from entering Wrigley Field during the 1945 World Series, the Cubs' loss fueled a legend. Today there are seven Billy Goat Taverns, and within this volume you'll be sat down next to luminaries such as Mike Royko, John Belushi, Bill Murray, and Don Novello as you are reminded why the American Tavern is still the friendliest place in town.
