Actor, comedian, Stern Show guest, and noted Cubs fan Bill Murray is opening a a “Caddyshack”-themed bar in Rosemont, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, according to a report by the Daily Herald.
He and his five brothers, who are also his business partners, filed paperwork for the necessary permits and reached a verbal lease agreement on a 11,000-square-foot-space inside Rosemont’s Crowne Plaza hotel. This marks the second “Caddyshack”-themed eatery for the Murray brothers, who also opened one up in St. Augustine, Fla., back in 2001.
Bill played gopher-hunting-groundskeeper Carl Spackler in the 1980 film “Caddyshack,”also starring Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase.
