    Big Star Dropped Its Cash-Only Policy, But Many City Spots Are Holding Out
    CHICAGO - Big Star might have ditched its cash-only policy, but the city still has a lot of holdouts. The restaurant made the big switch and started accepting credit cards because guests wanted the change, technology has advanced and Big Star needed to move forward with the neighborhood, said Kim Lyons, a spokeswoman for Big Star.

  • amazing how they have ATM's in their business...Wonder how much they get when a customer uses them? Most people NEVER carry cash anymore. Sign of the times....

  • Too many drunk bros ring up huge bills on their credit cards, then call the credit card company yo dispute the bill and the bar gets stiffed. I know a couple bars that stopped taking cards for this reason
