This is the bar my sister-in-law Dian manages in Aurora Township, Illinois. It's small place that is a real home to the people who come by. They serve great food: meat fresh from the slaughterhouse, fish caught in the river and the best Italian Beef sandwiches in the Fox River valley. I was there two Christmases ago and it was a really sweet place to me. I've never known that small town hangout environment and I could easily see the claustrophobic element to it, but also the absolute security and the need for a clan. Anyway, it's a lovely clubhouse in the winter with the lights bouncing of the snow. You could get into an argument inside with someone over something stupid, then go outside for a smoke and see the pretty lights and get sentimental all over again.
