The idea of having a prison as the setting of a haunted house is pretty masterful. No one in their right mind ever wants to go to prison especially one that is dimly lit and where the Warden is Satan himself..

The Hauntings Continue

Written by

altThe quests for Illinois's best thrills and chills this Halloween season led me to The Dungeon of Doom and Statesville Haunted Prison. Both haunted houses have stellar reputations and I can happily report neither disappointed in their delivery. My review on Statesville will be posted later today.

The Hauntings in Illinois

Written by

Chicago Haunted HousesMy mission this October is to visit as many haunted house in the area as possible. Like my beloved punk concerts, I feel the need to see as many haunted houses as possible before I become the out- of- place "creepy old guy."..

Its_Vegas_BabyI did have time before the concert to have a wonderful dinner at It’s Vegas Baby. I liked the décor and slideshow of old Vegas performers playing in background. I ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, breaded in coconut and Japanese panko breadcrumbs with sweet coconut and spicy orange dipping sauces

Horseshoe Casino FloorI recently went to the Horseshoe Casino to cover a celebrity concert at The Venue and was pleasantly surprised by everything about this friendly casino. First, I was astounded by how easy it was to get to.

fangoriademonI arrived at Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors at about 11:30am Saturday morning, shortly after it opened. The Wynhdam O'Hare hotel contained a huge line of horror fans, more than many festooned in the fashion of their favorite scare flick character. Upon my entering, I was overwhelmed by features of creatures and inundated with movie memorabilia. Once inside the event, you are utterly surrounded by its purported essence.

McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum

Written by

McCormick Freedom MuseumToday I visited the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum located on Michigan Avenue in the historic Tribune Tower. This is really a wonderful, must see exhibit for young people where “they will be inspired to better understand freedom and value the role the First Amendment plays in protecting freedom for future generations.”

altAfter a long and successful starring run on the popular TV series he also produced, “CSI- Las Vegas”, William Petersen has returned to his hometown of Chicago (Evanston) to perform as a member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

Chicago Supernatural Tours Will Give You Chills

Written by

Supernatural ToursBoo! If it’s ghosts or paranormal occurrences you seek, there’s a pretty good chance you may encounter one during one of Richard T. Crowe’s Chicago Supernatural Tours. Perhaps the spirit of John Dillinger, the one time F.B.I.’s Most Wanted criminal, might make his presence known as the tour stops at the Biograph Theater...

altWhen you think of a casino vacation, do you think about a day in the spa?

I do.  After a long day or night of shopping, partying, and gambling there is nothing better to revive your senses than a day in the spa.
