Any thoughts on making this a S.N.I.Z.Z.L.E. event? I think it would be a blast.

HOLY CRAP, you guys have been talking about my town. . . .and I've been completely ignorant of this.

Well, I'd love to get some of you IL guys down here to P-town, go to a Rivermen game (after all, they are AAA now), and hit the town afterward. . .

Sully's isn't bad, but I recommend Kelleher's or the Hofbrau for the GOOD beer.

Bar Louie's is a new place, and they have Delerium Tremens on tap. . (or used to).

And Cheese, I used to live in West Peoria, and I'm not sure what wing place you're talking about. I never frequented the places much over there. . .

oh, and by the way, the Lucky Lady burned down the other day. I'm not sure how much damage total they suffered, but I think it was substantial.


Let me know.... I love minor league Hockey, and am a Rivermen Fan.

That's what makes you the Peoria connection. I was just throwing out ideas built around a hockey game. I'm more than open to suggestions on where to drink and eat. If enough people are interested let's talk some dates. I for one will do an overnighter, mainly because I'd rather just sleep instead of doing an hour and a half drive. I'd rather crash than crash thanks. Methinks it would be an outstanding time tho.

I'll have to check the rivermen schedule. Sounds like fun. Sonvolt also lives here (well, in Washington), so we could make this an all-out HBT outing.

I'll have to build up to asking permission to go. The wife knows my love of Big Als and Club Cabaret (and no trip to Peoria would be complete without a visit at these places). It would have to be an overnight trip for me, especially if I'm drinking anything.

Probably not, but then again, MAYBE.

If its any consolation to her, I actually have NEVER been to Big Als or Club Cabaret as long as I've lived here. (SWMBO keeps a little bit of a leash on me).

There's something fundamentally wrong with that.


It's been ages since I've been to Al's and I've never been to Club Cabaret. Mind you that's only because I haven't been partying in Peoria in ages. I have buddies in St. Louis that would come up every January and we'd drive up and check out the Rivermen and everyting else in river city. That's been a few years ago tho. I don't have a problem with checking out Al's and CC, or not if that's the case. Just trying to put together a gathering.

And for the record the better Gentlemens' Clubs are down on the Illinois side of the border down by St. Louis.

I used to be a bellhop at the Pere Marquette, so I got free admission into both of those places. Life was grand. Plus, going there on amateur night meant getting to see some of my classmates bare it all. Good times. Good times.

I have a coworker who works/worked at Al's. She's since had a family, so I'm unsure as to her employment. . .lots of my residents and coworkers who had seen her on the stage found it hard to work with her and look her straight in the eye if you know what I mean.
