One of my new favorites: Tot Restaurant!

At 310 Oak St. (walking distance from the Chanticleer Inn) check out their menu and the website: www.totrestaurant.com Opened June '12, one of the newest places in town. I've been there twice, each time it was a delight. Wonderful food and great service. They call themselves "Southeast Asian BBQ", but it's more that BBQ. Soups, rice bowls and sandwiches are available -- all very well prepared with great mix of flavors! Worth going back and back, and back. For more restaurant selections go to Ellen's favorite eatery list.

A guest reviews “Animal Crackers”

"Animal Crackers"

Karen's review of Animal Crackers: Although I may have seen the Marx Brothers film by this name, I have no independent memory of it.  I was assured by a fellow theatre-goer that the play we saw that night bore only the faintest resemblance to the movie.

"Party People"

Karen's Review of Party People: As the second of this season's plays in the OSF American Revolutions: The United States History Project, "Party People" struck closer to my personal experience than had "All the Way" the day before. Not only because I lived in close proximity through the events portrayed, but also because a colleague of mine had been shot by a member of the Black Panthers, in spite of her role as one of their defense attorneys. The production (it is so much more than a "play") was conceived, created and performed by UNIVERSES, a dozen actors/singers/dancers/composers/political activists who incorporate all of these skills into their work.  The result is a multi-media, multi-emotional experience.
