From our CEO

So if you spend $100 at any of the below local and national partners of ours, we’ll give you a $25 gift card to use when its time to visit Northwoods Mall once again.

Will it play in Peoria?  When Horatio Alger Jr. penned Jacob Marlowe’s Secret in 1890, little did he realize this phrase would become part of the national lexicon as a symbolic reference to Middle America’s acceptance of new and interesting things. Well I can tell you firsthand, Peoria is a hotbed for cool stuff and I’d bet my bottom dollar there is cooler sh*t in Peoria per capita than just about anywhere else in the United States… sorry Brooklyn and Venice Beach. Peorians also have a pen-chant for off color humor. Just listen to late comedians Richard Pryor and Sam Kinison… both raised in Peoria (preferably without children in the room). I also ‘heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another you been messin’ around’ or at least that’s what REO Speedwagon guitarist and Peoria native Gary Richrath told me.  There’s also a little company ($53.8B of revenue) based in Peoria, which is the world's leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment and is named after the larval stage of members of the order Lepidoptera (the in-sect order comprising butterflies and moths).

THE ROOM PLACE

While I actually own a Peloton Bike and have to admit it’s a pretty darn good workout… it pales in comparison to Room Place's version. Last time I looked, there’s no place to hold a pineapple drink and a six pack on a Peloton.

Bradley University has one badass mascot… Kaboom! (exclamation point included) the Gargoyle.  Word of advice… if you’re playing Jenga with him… let him win.

Smoking Pit

THE SMO-KING PIT

Many of you know I’ve fallen in love with a gal from Mississippi… and where she comes from barbecue ain’t a food… it’s a religion.  Well if you want a spiritual awakening head on over to The Smo-King Pit when we open back up. The family who owns it are the sweetest people on the planet and they more than hold their own against the likes of rib joints in Tupelo, Jackson, Greenwood and Hattiesburg.

If I have to wash my hands fifteen times a day, I demand to smell like a woodsy, mysterious blend of rich mahogany, black teakwood and dark oak.
