Two weeks to save Drinks Over Dearborn

Help The Boozehound help you.

Since its opening in late 2008, Drinks Over Dearborn has offered a wide variety of booze-related services, from specialty sales to tastings to classes to event hosting. That could soon be over, as the boutique shop finds itself about $50,000 in debt. In an effort to keep the dream alive, proprietor Kyle McHugh (aka The Boozehound) has started a unique fundraising campaign, 500 Benjamins or Bust. He's looking for 500 people to open $100 accounts with the store, to be charged only if the total fundraising goal is reached by March 1. It's kind of like a Groupon, except the window of opportunity lasts two weeks instead of a single day. If the goal is not reached, the store will close on March 5.

Want to make sure your money will be well spent? Check out the store's inventory here.

Thanks to Chicagoist and 312DD for alerting us to this campaign.
