Glad to see that you are here to represent Loren, Mark Tupper--the whole Illini media community!  I highly recommend if you can to try any one of the fine Italian restaurants in the North End on Hanover Street.  No tourist visit is complete without a stop in to Mike's Pastry Shop--also on Hanover.

Wondering where the Illini entourage is staying--Back Bay Hilton? Colonnade Hotel? would be awesome to see the guys walking around town-- I've been looking forward to an Illini game in Boston for years.

Good luck and GO ILLINI!

Could the U of I, have used Red Bird arena in  Bloomington, if it was available?
