One website claims that this Indiana restaurant is the most unusual dining experience in the Hoosier State. Have you been here before?. Indiana has no shortage of great restaurants that have been open for years. These restaurants have become staples in that area where people must go whenever they are in town.

Out of all of the possibilities, it can be somewhat difficult to decide where you want to go to eat.

Disney World Guest With Disabilities Falls off Ride Into Magic Kingdom River: ‘Lucky I Survived’
A guest with disabilities feels lucky to be alive after falling off a raft ride into a water body at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom theme park. The male unidentified guest was in the Frontierland section of the park where Tom Sawyer Island is, an outdoor adventure area that guests can explore and access via a brief raft ride. The veteran's service dog alerted him to an equilibrium issue happening so he attempted to sit on the box in the raft section, something that he claims other cast members have been letting him do for years. However, this cast member did not let him sit on it due to a potential safety risk, presumably as he could fall off of it.

Check Your $2 Bills Illinois, They Could Be Worth Thousands
My earliest recollection of a $2 bill traces back to the day of my first communion when nestled within a Hallmark card, I discovered a couple of them. However, it was on my 14th birthday that the significance of these bills truly dawned on me. It was my grandparents who gifted me seven $2 bills, a gesture that felt far more enchanting than receiving fourteen one-dollar bills.

Wisconsin Has One Of The Most Rat Infested Cities In The U.S.

Iowa Is One Of The States Working Hardest To Quit Vaping
Vaping is a dangerous habit and Iowans really want to quit. Vaping is a super popular way for the youth nowadays to "smoke". The National Institute on Drug Abuse defines vaping (or e-cigarettes) are battery-operated devices that use aerosols that often contain nicotine. I've seen vapes look more like flashdrives or pens, but they can also look like normal cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. One of the more dangerous aspects of vapes, especially for teens, is that vapes often are flavored with sweet tastes, making them more appealing.

Drinking This Beer Can Help the Environment in Minnesota
Cracking open a can or bottle of this Minnesota beer can help quench your thirst-- and help to restore pine forests here in Minnesota as well. I've been a big fan of Minnesota's incredible craft beer industry and all the great local breweries across our state for years now.
