Illinois' Chain of Lakes-- Part 4: Cruisin', Eating and Drinking on the Chain

For example, the last few days, we went out boating three of four days.

Friday, we boated over to Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake for their ribs special.  You get a full slab of ribs and wings for $9.999.  A REAL good deal.  We then put the boat up and drove to the Fox Lake American Legion and joined the Usual Suspects for the 50-50 drawing.

Saturday, we took a boat cruise over to the McDonald's on Pistakee Lake for breakfast and then did a sow cruise around Pistakee Lake, Nippersink Lake and Fox Lake.

We put the boat up (it tends to get quite hectic on the weekends as there are a real lot of boaters) and drove over to Oak Park Lounge on Pistakee Bay where owned Tom was celebrating his 40th anniversary of owning the place (which dates to 1895).  He had three bands and a deejay scheduled as well as 40 cent Hamms beer drafts.

We congratulated him and stuck around for the first band.
