Story Behind the Painting

This painting titled "Two Goats" is of the Billy Goat Tavern made famous by Saturday Night Live: "Cheezborger, Cheezborger, Cheezborger, No Pepsi... Coke! The original iconic bar and grill is tucked under Lower Wacker Drive and has rich Chicago history involving several politicians. If you go there, order the Horny Goat and ask the bartender about the story of the goat cursing the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
