An Illini love story, Campustown taverns edition ...

“My offering either is a reflection of me, or the times — or both — but it’s a tossup between two bars," former Exelon CAO and UI trustee Pam Strobel confesses.

"The White Horse Inn is where Russ and I had our first date, a lunch the same day that he had asked me to go to a Larry Coryell concert. The cheeseburgers were good but I just remember starting to fall in love there.  

“We were also dedicated Friday afternoon regulars at the DeLuxe. Just thinking about those fish sandwiches and a beer makes my mouth water.”
