  1. When I was a kid, I would eat at the original one in Normal, IL, as I travelled to grandparents in northern Illinois. It was fun! Bring it on!

    • But if the sports complex hits like they hope it will, there will be a massive influx of new restaurants in town. Everyone is looking at the negatives of spending the money, but they have clearly never seen a complex that hosts large tourneys. You have a tourney with 30 travel teams, you fill hotels and restaurants with hundreds of people. One large tourney will sell out every hotel at the interstate. The great majority of those travel ball people are wealthy folks looking for places to eat and drink after the games.

      Now of course for this to all work out, the complex needs to be run correctly, and that I am a little concerned with….

      • Hmmm… I recall saying 99% of this last week.

        But I wouldn’t say travel ball people are wealthy. The ones I know aren’t. They’re just dedicated to getting their children sports scholarships.
