DOWNTOWN — Looking for booze, kitchenware, and/or a seven-foot-long wooden swordfish?
Bring your best offers Wednesday.
Houlihan's, the chain bar/restaurant that closed late last year at 111 E. Wacker Drive, will auction off all its inventory at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the restaurant.
Aside from the aforementioned, the items up for auction also include framed posters, wooden booths, plates, mugs, glasses, silverware, a football signed by Chicago Bears legend Mike Ditka and a wooden cigar store Indian statue. There are no minimum bids, according to the auctioneer.
"It'll go to the highest bidder," said Bob King of Elgin-based Bob King Auctions. "Hopefully it'll all be sold."
The restaurant closed in November, and a new tenant has yet to be found, said John Vance of Stone Real Estate, who handles retail leasing for the building at 111 E. Wacker. Representatives of Leawood, Kan.-based Houlihan's Restaurants did not return messages seeking comment.
