Popular Rockford Area Eatery Will Open a New Location in Loves Park

My Rockford-born wife has many great memories of family meals here. With their enormous menu, nobody ever left the table unhappy. When I first moved to Rockford, anytime someone brought up grabbing some takeout, this Rockford area staple was mentioned. If you said nobody in your group could decide on where to get food, this place was the remedy. The food was always ready quickly and always delicious.

One Night Train Experience You Won’t Want to Miss in Illinois This Labor Day Weekend

You don't need to be a kid to agree that trains are cool, and riding on one is even cooler. The only train I have ever ridden is the Metra (I think it's Metra) train from Harvard to Chicago, but I have always thought it would be cool to take a long trip via train. I may not be checking that train trip off my bucket list anytime soon, but this cool event happening at the Illinois Railway Museum over Labor Day weekend might just be the next best thing.
