The franchise Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill plans to open an outpost in Rosemont this summer (h/t Kevin Pang). There are already six I Love This Bar & Grills across the country, with five more in the works—including one in Folsom, California, site of another famous country song. The genre, of course, is rich with great drinking tunes, so I tried to gin up a few ideas for entrepreneurs—One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer Garden? (More of a blues song, I know.) If Drinkin’ Don’t Kill Me (Our All-You-Can-Eat Buffet Will)? Two More Bottles of Wine Bar & Sidewalk Cafe? But Keith’s restaurant deserves credit for the seamless elegance of its name. And also for Toby’s Platter, a fearsome heap of nachos, wings, mozzarella sticks, macaroni and cheese wedges, and jalepeno poppers.
