Fans of Caddyshack, your wildest dreams are about to come true!
Bill Murray, known for his role as groundskeeper Carl Spackler in the cult film, has recently announced that he and his brothers plan to open a pair of restaurants outside of Chicago. And—yesss!—one is rumored to be a golf-themed sports bar based on Caddyshack. The new spots will join the existing Murray Bros. Caddyshack restaurant at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla., which is run by Bill’s brother Andy Murray.
We know Bill already has some bartending experience, as he was seen slinging drinks at his son’s restaurant in Brooklyn not long ago (so he has that going for him, which is nice). Perhaps he’ll stop by to guest-bartend at the new place, too!
The brothers so far have a verbal agreement for an 11,000-square-foot space in Rosemont’s Crowne Plaza Hotel. They are currently working to create a lease; construction dates on the new place are still unknown. But as Chevy Chase’s Ty Webb might have said: “There’s a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen.”
