billy goat tavern

from john belushi posted in television by donkeyoti

Buried below the different bridge and road levels of Chicago's busy downtown is a small cheeseburger joint established in 1934.

Founded by Greek immigrant Billy Sianis, the Billy Goat was the inspiration for the SNL Cheeseburger sketch with John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray (Murray was an original writer for the sketch).

Also, the tavern is supposedly the basis for the "Curse of the Billy Goat" after the owner (Sianas) tried to bring a goat to a Cubs game and was ejected.
