Last night I headed down to one of my favorite places for a drink in Bloomington-Normal --- Rosie's in downtown Bloomington. They have for sale my favorite beer in a bottle, Dead Guy Ale, and the rich combination of dark woodwork and maroon walls and ceiling make it the perfect place for personal reflection and brooding. I was introduced to Rosie's by a friend who was born and raised here but now lives in a neighboring state. Ever since, I've been going back many a Friday when digestion of the week's events is in order.
By the way, I almost forgot to mention that the restaurant at Rosie's is also superb. I love the bar, but I have to say that the restaurant is also my favorite in town.
