My wife and I went to see Priscilla Presley What a great event. Ron Oresto really knows how to put on a class show. He also knows how to assemble a first rate, friendly and professional staff. We will be back.

Yes, walk over the bridge on the Fox River (1 block west) and you see Zsa Zsa's Italian Restaurant. Has good food, great drinks and a super nice long bar.
