IllinoidTaking a look at the places on the challenge. Again, it would have been a LOT more fun back in the 70s or 80s.
FOX LAKE SITES
ELECRIC HARBOR-- On the east end. Small place, but they have a great large tiki bar out by the water with a great view looking west on the lake. Great sunsets. Docking can be rough though when the wind is blowing in from the west.
Some good specials. Mondays $3 bottles. Wednesdays $3 blended ice drinks and $2 brat and fries. They also own Captain's Quarters and Kross Inn in Ingleside (off the Chain).
MINEOLA-- West end of lake. On a big old 1890s hotel. Unfortunately, the owner is not keeping up with repairs and we're not sure how long we'll have it. Specials are $1 drafts Mondays and Wednesdays.
NATIONAL ATHLETIC CLUB-- Southern shore, about the middle of the lake. Private club most of the time, but they do allow boaters to come in.
BAJA BENNY'S-- Middle southern shore. Closed this year and not on the Crawl. It used to be Costello's, a place we spent lots of time at.
Good Time on the Chain. --RoadDog
