A toast, from the best-selling author and founder of Wealthysinglemommy.com, to the Campustown bar she remembers so fondly. 

Murphy’s Pub — before it was renovated, which happened the year after I graduated — was an institution,” says UI journalism grad Emma Johnson, whose latest book (October’s ‘The Kickass Single Mom’) was touted by the New York Post as a “must-read.”

“Weekends in Champaign-Urbana started on Thursday, when Murphy’s featured $5 pictures of Miller Lite, and that tiny, dark, grubby place is the source of so many laughs and memories, many of which cannot be recounted in a family publication.”
