WCL: iPic Theaters and Drink Recipes

WCL prides itself on bringing you the best of what's new around the Chicagoland area. This week, we're featuring a new, ultimate movie experience where you can catch a flick, get a drink and enjoy excellent dining options.

It's called iPic Theaters, and there are two locations in Bolingbrook and South Barrington.

Adam Seger, mixologist for Salt Bar in the iPic Theater, joined WCL to make some of the bars most popular drinks, and iPic representative Mark Mulcahey had a special surpise for our studio audience.
