66 Things to See on Illinois' Route 66-- Part 13: Bill Shea's

64.  JUNGLE JIM'S CAFE,  Springfield.  I haven't yet eaten here, but passed it many times.  It is on my list of things to do.

65.  RED CARPET CORRIDOR,  Joliet to Towanda (Towanda is north of Bloomington-Normal).   A group of towns get together to offer a great weekend experience in May of each year.

66.  BILL SHEA'S, Springfield.  Now closed and in the process of being auctioned off.  This is too bad because it was one great place with lots of auto and Route 66 related stuff.  Of course, best of all, Bill Sillinoihea was often there and he alone was worth the visit.  The stories he could tell. I remember sitting with him and Tom Teague on our first Route 66 experience in 2002.

Lots to See in Illinois.  --RoadDog
