    If the weather is nice sit out on the deck. Nobody has ever uttered these words: "Possibly the best view of the city at sunset." Make the best of it if you're in Aurora.

    Go to Ballydoyle in downtown Aurora. Order a tasty draft beer from the friendly staff and listen to some great live music. Gamble away any remaining money at Hollywood Casino across the street. Read more

    Get a blow job. Avoid ordering an Amaretto Stone Sour, they use orange juice with pulp. The corned beef is the best I've ever had.

    Try a Batch 19 Pre-Prohibition Lager here. It's one of less than 30 bars in Illinois that carries this great beer.

    Find the bartender Liriam, ask him for a cab driver (shot or drink), then ask him how to make it.
