CHICAGO – Was there a time when the leader of a country wanted people to drink beer instead of coffee in the morning?

Indeed there was, even if it didn’t last for long.

That topic was covered in the “6@6” on WGN Morning News on Wednesday as we discussed that recommendation while also taking a look at some very interesting shoes known as “Moonwalkers.”

The hosts also discussed the importance of not forgetting about Thanksgiving since so many are already looking ahead to Christmas and the time there was a shortage of Star Wars gear.

You can watch the entire “6@6” on November 2nd in the video above.
