Drury Lane - "Hazel": This show contained all of the elements for an entertaining day - singing, dancing, talent, good food, and some good laughs.
Laughlin - May: I decided to play a little bit before heading to mass. I hit 450 free spins, so needless to say, I never made it to mass.

Chicago Botanic Gardens: If a person ever needs some peace and solitude, all they need to do is grab a good book or their ipod and find a nice bench here.
