We got together with Tequila Herradura to challenge ten Chicago artists to turn tequila barrels into masterpieces for the Tequila Herradura Barrel Art Collection 2014. In case you missed the showcase, they've now placed seven of these amazing structures at bars all over Chicago and beyond -- and, to sweeten the deal, they're offering specialty cocktails at each location. Hit one or all of these spots between October 31st and December 31st, grab a refined adult beverage, and catch some of the tastiest art ever made (because, you know, it's made of tequila barrels).
