Billy Goat Tavern says it’s staying put

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The cheezborger-cheezborgers are here to stay on Lower Michigan Avenue.

The Billy Goat Tavern said it will not be moving, even though the building it's in is due for a major redevelopment.

The Billy Goat, which became legendary in the Saturday Night Live "cheeseburger" skit, has been in the bottom of the Realtor Building for almost 50 years.

The news of the building's redevelopment broke earlier this week, but on Thursday, the Billy Goat's owners said no matter what happens above them, they aren't going anywhere.
