Played NTN Sunday at Donovan's in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, and yesterday at Hello Folks in Fox Lake, Illinois. We had quite a few top twenties both days as we have good teams playing at both places.
While going through the the NTN/Buzztime site, I saw the national rankings of places.
Hello Folks ranks #11 in Illinois and #115 nationwide (out of about 4000 places). Not bad for a townie type bar.
Two other places we play at a lot are Pug Mahone's in Fox Lake which is #267 in the nation and Capital City in Springfield, Illinois which is #920.
National rankings of other places we have visited in Illinois: Fargo Lounge Moline #2, Diamond Lils Roselle #12, 46 Zone #28, Teasers Chicago #40, Moretti's Schaumburg #47, Scoreboard Rockford #78, Miranda's Rockford #135, BW3 Bloomington #154, Damon's Rockford #234, Sports Page Arlington Hts #297.
Illinois has a total of 197 NTN sites, down from 214 last year. Florida has the most with 334 places.
I always warn new players to be careful as it is addictive. Liz and I are REALLY HOOKED.
So far this year, we have been to 61 new places. We went to 49 places when we went to the Gulf Coast back in February. I went to 7 more going to visit the family in NC. We just got back from an Illinois trip and added four more to the list.
Altogether, we have been to 671 sites around the US. That puts us into second places for most sites visited.
