Default Peoria, IL - The Smell

I lived in Peoria for about 3 years when I went to Bradley. I never could put my finger on the smell that town has, but I think I finally placed it. DMS!! That's why it smells like corn / beer / bum piss on certain days of the year.

ADM in Peoria is/was (not sure if it still is) the largest producer of grain alcohol in the US. So yeah, they pump out the smelly stuff down there.

Don't hate on the smell of money, at least that's what they told me on my first day of work.
