WICKER PARK —  A Texas-based joint that has a motto of "fried champagne and chicken, why the h--- not?" and expanded to Chicago just 10 months ago is closing its doors April 25.

As part of a "Going out of business sale," the only Chicago MAX'S Wine Dive, 1482 N. Milwaukee Ave., will sell its full wine bottle inventory at a highly reduced rate beginning Tuesday, while supplies last.

According to a news release, guests will receive “employee pricing” at the steepest discounts available until the last bottles from the collection are gone.

There are 100 labels on the list, according to MAX's Wine Dive manager Kate Bocson.

In addition to a weekend board game brunch and friendly service, the Wicker Park eatery and wine bar was known for its selection of exclusive wines from around the world, some of which could not be found anywhere else, the restaurant said.

Eater Chicago first reported the impending closure.

Sale and dining in hours are 4-11 p.m. Monday-Friday; 10 a.m. to midnight Saturday; 10a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. For more info, call 773-661-6581.
