The Best Way To Watch Your Favorite Teams

When it comes to watching your favorite sports teams in Illinois, there are so many different options. You can experience it live in person, at a sports bar, or maybe just hanging home. I believe the best way is with other fans. It does not matter if they win or lose as long as you are hanging out with some fun people, then it is guaranteed to be a fun time.

New Movie Theaters Are Amazing 

Unfortunately, it has been a long time since a new movie theater has opened in the Rockford area. If you have not visited one of the new modern ones, I definitely recommend taking a road trip. Not only do you get amazing sound and screens, but the whole experience is also incredible. They sell booze and full meals with servers so you do not have to get up. The seats are super comfy heated recliners. It is better than watching in your living room.
