Anyone interested in getting some of the Illinois HBT clan (or any from outside the land of beans and corn) together in Peoria for a Rivermen game after the 1st of the year?

Link to their site with their schedule.

http://www.rivermen.net/

It might be an interesting way to obliterate the holidays from your memory. (Of course there is beer for that) OR wish for Spring depending on the date chosen...

Lemme know what you guys think.

I don't like sports in general, but I like to drink HB...so unless the dates conflict with my business trip in Jan (to TX), I'm in...oops, forgot about the weather also...

These guys were here in Albany last week. The River Rats beat them down I think Don't watch much hockey but I like the minor league stuff better than the pros.

I've been wanting to head down that way sometime to catch a game when the Milwaukee Admirals visit. Or head up here Jan 27, you can hit the Sprecher or Lakefront tours if they run after 5 PM. It's odd, both of their Saturday games here are 1:30.

If you hang outside the dorms at Bradley, you can usually score some free tickets. At least we used to back in the day.

I liked Rivermen games...fun stuff. And I LOVE getting down to P-Town.

If you were in Massachusetts, I would *so* be mocking you for that statement right now. Anybody else in the Commonwealth find that statement humorous?

Used to go out to the Cape alot back when I was younger. Always was a good day trip up to Ptown to watch the flamers on display. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

And they're friggin cheap... $17.50 for lower bowl? That's ridiculous... It's been a few years since I've been, but I think it could be fun. Brews at Sully's might have to be an option...

Mmmm...Sulley's... Been a while since I've been there!

Hey, what's the name of the place in West Peoria that has the Nose Running, Forehead Sweating, Eye Popping hot wings? I've been unable to remember the name.

You should pubcrawl to Jimmy's for some Long Island Iced Teas.
