Why Go Anywhere Else?-- Part 2: Broken Oar, All In, Riverside and Sunnyside
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5 continued
We left Herman's Low Life and drove the short distance to Broken Oar on the Fox River and enjoyed their Thursday $1 pint drafts and got a passport stamp on our Chain Crawl book. The usual Thursday Texas Hold-Em crowd rolled in.
Then, we went to All In off the Fox River and Ill-176 in Burton's Bridge and had a drink. They aren't in the Chain Crawl, but we really like this place and stop in whenever we're in the area (just like Herman's Low Life). They have a very good $1.50 burger special on Thursdays and $1.50 pints of PBR everyday. Talked with a couple who had been in Las Vegas for their 50th anniversary and returned just five hours before the murders.
Then to Riverside Pub for another Chain Crawl stamp and $5 pitchers. It is in Burton's Bridge, but on the other side of the river.
Last stop was at Sunnyside.
Five Bars, One Day, Two Passport Stamps.
