A karaoke bar named Pitch will open at 631 Main Street in Peoria next month.

Mother's Day is rapidly nearing. I'll be on the prowl for a gift from a great local shop and am trying to think of someplace we can sneak in for breakfast without all the chaos or portable brunch items to take over to Mom's. As much as I would like it, I don't think a Cracked Pepper bacon log will work!

Shifter's Pub has opened at 500 Main Street in Peoria, which was home to the Whammy Bar, Euro Jack's and Babe's, just to name a few.

A reader sent me a review of his visit to the updated Bernardi's Pub and Italian Eatery in Dunlap. Looks like they have a brand new menu with less emphasis on Italian food and a pulled pork sandwich I think I need to check out!

Recently we stopped in Eureka for a tasty locally-brewed coffee at Mika's and noticed their neighbors The Skirt Outlet and Objects.
