Sorry I'm running behind getting you directions. There's been a lot of crap going down on this side of the monitor, least of which is no internet service. At least not yet.
So here's the scoop. The meal is going to be the Carvery option. It will be served at one, with the bar opening at noon.
I'm figuring most are coming via I - 90, so I'll give those directions first.
Coming up or down 90, take the I - 39 south, 20 Rockford exit. For those coming from up nort, this is the last Rockford exit. Believe it or not, if you're coming from the south, it's the first Rockford exit. Weird.
When I - 39 breaks south towards Bloomington Normal, take it. You'll go about 8 miles. Take Exit 111, Hwy 72. Turn right (towards Byron).
About another 8 miles, you will enter the metropolis of Stillman Valley. Look for a Marathon gas station on your right... this is Walnut St. Take a right. Fritz's will be on your left, after the stop sign. Parking is on both sides of the street.
For those coming via I - 88, head north on I - 39. After that, directions are exactly the same... exactly. Any other directions needed, just let me know.
One word of caution... about three miles along on 72, you will come to where hwy 251 intersects. The signs say it, and I'll say it... cross traffic does not stop. Now I'm not implying that anyone's an idiot. I'm just letting you know that this is a very dangerous intersection. Hardly a day goes by without a minor wreck, and I don't think that a month can go by without a fatality. Just keep this is mind when you pull up to the stop sign... I want to be able to see all of you.
If you need any more info, drop me a line.
See ya soon,
