We watched the play Happy Days in the Round Barn then had the buffet dinner in Threshers Dinner. Both were very good. The roast beef and ham were great.

I think it's about 175 miles from Palatine, so probably arouond 170 from Arlington Heights. Took us just about 3 1/2 hours, but we hit some of the morning traffic around Chicago. (We left our house at 6 am).
