Ok, the shakes with the homemade whipped cream and cookies are KILLER, the candies are superb, and the atmosphere is quaint. Like many, I was introduced to the deliciousness of Gayety's by my mom at the former location on Commercial Avenue in Chicago (any one else a bit intimidated by old man Papageorge behind the register with his gigantic cigar?). Since then the establishment has been going strong under the guidance of his nephew Lee and then Jim (Lee's son). NOT the place to go if you are watching your caloric intake but sooooo worth the occasional splurge!

Community Veterans Memorial is a 6.5 acre park featuring bronze and granite sculptures, and life-size monuments to depict the major military conflicts that shaped the 20th Century. The memorial imparts a reflective and provocative vision for peace. From the trenches of World War I through the Pacific beaches and European battles of World War II, the extreme weather and combat conditions of Korea, the rugged brutal fire fights of Vietnam, and the sandy sea of Desert Storm, the memorial pays the highest tribute to all veterans. A commemorative brick pathway leads visitors on their journey through history. Individuals and groups are invited to take self-guided tours in which several stations provide pre-recorded information about the defining wars of the 20th Century. Guided tours are also available.
This should be visited by every veteran who passes through Northwest Indiana, preferably with family/friends as it can be overwhelming. A forgone conclusion is a visit to VFW Post 6448 in Dyer or American Legion Post 697 in Lansing but we managed to try a third option hidden in the industrial park behind the memorial (Three Floyds Brewery) and the entire staff made us feel more welcome than previously thought possible.

It's interesting to see the roots. Contrary to what you may read here, the neighborhood is not scary and dangerous. It's only about a mile off the Skyway and well worth a quick detour. There are no guided tours and it is not q museum. Go! If you think this neighborhood is sketchy it's probably best that you stay in your lily white suburbs in your gated community.

Imagine the opportunity of sitting with Jesus at the last supper table. The apostles have not yet arrived, so it's just you and Jesus. Or how about being witness to Pontius Pilate looking down on Jesus and he turns and asks you, what do you say? Do you want to set him free or do you say crucify him? That's what you get when you go to St John's Indiana to see the shrine of Christ's passion. You're actually put in these situations and it can have a profound effect on you. I hope all Christians take the time to walk the different stations.

Cute place, lots of martini's to choose from. So glad smoking is not allowed, much better now. The owners are great and the staff very friendly.

So many televisions, you can't beat it for watching the Sunday afternoon football games. I prefer to sit in the area next to the bar as it is a little quieter than the huge party room in the back. My favorite thing to order is the BLT salad. It is huge and I estimate there is close to a pound of bacon along with fresh lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and toast points along with a homemade salad dressing. It literally is to die for!
We usually go there for St. Patrick's Day dinner because the Corned Beef and Cabbage is probably the best in the area. Be sure and go early and be prepared to wait as the restaurant fills up fast. Last year we waited for close to an hour as more corned beef was being cooked, bad timing on our part but definitely worth the wait.
Their wings are great and there are specials during the week when you can get a really good deal. I also like the soup, it tastes homemade and goes well with the basket of cheese and bread sticks served when you first take your table.
The wait staff has alway been good, never pushy, remembers everything and always around to fill my drink.

My husband and I are avid game room enthusiasts. We were making a trip to Chicago and wanted to hit a few on our way. We decided on this one as one of our stops. It was noon and I was in the process of booking the 1:30 room. I didn't put "2" people accidentally so I went back to fix it and the game was gone. I reset, exited and reentered....nothing. it was gone. So my husband called and they asked how many people....he said 2. They informed him that it takes their employees that amount of time to get there when a room is booked. I find it difficult to believe 5 mitues would have made a huge difference. Out of the dozens of rooms we have been to, never have we ran across this type of scenerio. My advice would be to book way in advance to ensure someone can make it there to run the game for you.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Floyds. The staff is ultra friendly and I love the loud vibe of the place. The auditory overload with metal music and movies in the background set up an atmosphere of fun and anticipation of a great meal and drink to come. We were not disappointed. My husband, teen daughters, and I shared lots of appetizers- the cheese board, cheese curds, and dumplings were outrageously great. Our mains were the fried chicken sandwich, the cod sandwich, ramen, and a burger. The attention to detail (assaulting every taste - sweet, salty, sour, spicy) was outstanding. Everything was house made and the beer is special. They love what they do at Floyds and it shows.

The stage is huge and the seating is within easy view of everything happening on stage! Drinks are very pricey!
