    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

    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.

    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.
