Inspiration can strike at odd times. Anthony Mikrut got the idea for his business about 3 o’clock one morning, when he and a girlfriend were in search of some products to enhance their special evening. “We figured you can get pizza any time of night,” he said. “Why can’t you get [sex] toys?”
Thus was born The Kinky Llama, a purveyor of adult goods that promises one-hour delivery by bicycle to most places in Chicago. Mikrut, 33, said the company has been around for 21/2 years and that, despite the recession, he’s busier than ever.
