Bill Murray Is Opening A “Caddyshack” Bar; 4 Other Murray Movies That Should Do the Same
December 23 / Geoff Magliocchetti / SportsGrid
Well, look who's trying to save 2016 with a little help from the family.
Actor and walking meme/legend Billy Murray, singer of the World Series's most bizarre take of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", has announced that he, together with his five brothers, are opening a restaurant set to theme of the 1980 comedy classic Caddyshack, which starred Bill in one of his most iconic roles of eccentric groundskeeper Carl Spackler, while his brother Brian had a smaller role.
The facility is expected to take up an 11,000 square foot space in the Crown Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.
That got us thinking...which films, in Murray's illustrious career, should also get the culinary treatment? Here's a look at four...
What better place to enjoy a sweet vermouth on the rocks with a twist than a Punxsutawney paradise? Drink to world peace and enjoy the sweet verses of French poetry as the staff, of course sticking to a daily looped script, waits on you. Just remember...no white chocolate, no fudge!
No matter what your thoughts on the 2016 film revival, I think we can all agree that anything Ghostbusters themed, be it a theme park, restaurant, etc., is long overdue. S'mores, complete with Stay Puft marshmallows should definitely be on the menu. Just make sure you tell 'em about the Twinkie, as well!
Ok, ok, technically Space Jam isn't Murray's movie...but when someone mentions the movie, the first thing that comes to mind just has to be Murray's over-the-top entrance in to the Tune Squad's tilt against the Monstars, as well as his legendary classification of Larry Bird being not white....but clear. If you're looking for a beer to savor while looking around at Murray's foray into hoops...which, you'll recall, he provides the game winning assist...you may want to look elsewhere, as surely the only drink on the menu is "Michael's Secret Stuff".
Wait, that's the one that features a talking blood cell voiced by Chris Rock and takes place INSIDE Murray's body??? Yeah, we might want to skip that one...
Any Of His Wes Anderson Movies
Murray has been one of Anderson's regulars for years, starring in each of the acclaimed director's films with the lone exception of his Bottle Rocket debut. Murray has been a huge part of the delightful and quaint lunacy that has been Anderson's career, and it's the type of eccentric that begs to be made into a themed restaurant.
