Rising from the ashes under new management after being temporarily shuttered is The Big Muddy Food and Spirits, located on St. Charles' New Town Boulevard just off highway 370. The Big Muddy has a slightly upscale country-club feel, typically drawing well-heeled suburbanites in their thirties or older. In addition to a full menu including its famous hand-made pizzas, the Big Muddy is also known for its chocolately "muddy martini" and a wide assortment of wines and high-end mixed drinks. The Big Muddy's generous daily happy hour lasts from 2 to 7 p.m., with $10 buckets, $4.50 Jack Daniels cocktails, $4 Skyy Vodka cocktails, $3 well cocktails, $3 house wines, $2 bottles and $1.50 drafts. They also host the occasional cleverly named special event. Muddy-ritaville, anyone? Well, what about Cinco de Muddy?
