METROPOLIS, IL – The Metropolis Public Library resides in a beautiful building at 317 Metropolis Street in Metropolis, IL.
Even though this library is nestled in a small town with population just over 6000, it stands toe-to-toe with with bigger-city libraries due to it’s high-tech format, a format that keeps hard copy books available on the shelves while offering digital versions and free WiFi as well.
The Metropolis Library also holds many community events throughout the year such as the Annual Farm Frenzy, a live event that entails local farmers volunteering their time to bring the farm to the library.
Farm Frenzy gives others a chance to stand next to these bigger-than-life machines used to churn dirt and harvest crops, crops that eventually end up on our dinner tables. There was a small petting zoo this year where the young and old gathered to pet the animals and experience what it’s like to be next to these beautiful creatures. It’s really awesome and a must see.

PADUCAH, KY – The Outback Steakhouse on Hinkleville Road at I-24 in Paducah has become one of our favorite places to eat for many wonderful reasons, so I wanted to share at least four of them with my readers.
Reason #1. The salads
The Salads are always so fresh and served right away leaving plenty of time to finish before the entrees come out.
Reason #2. The Bread
The oven-baked bread is served warm with every meal at Outback. This is sometimes overlooked in reviews, so I wanted add that the bread in concert with the melted butter is like having dessert before your meal; it’s that good.
Reason #3. The Outback Center-Cut Sirloin Dinners
The 6 oz Center Cut Sirloin dinner comes with two sides and oversized Coconut Shrimp for around $16.00. This tasty entree turns into two meals when you end up taking half of it home.
I tried the Loaded Mashed Potatoes a few months ago and have ordered them ever since. The added toppings cost $1 more but it turns the mashed potatoes into a savory buffet.
The Center Cut Sirloin is always mouth-watering and cooked perfectly every time. This is about our eighth time eating at this location and have always been impressed with the tenderness of the meat and the way it is seasoned.
Since the meals are big, we always have leftovers to take home. The Loaded Mashed Potatoes can be frozen and work great for things like thickening up stew or for potato pancakes to name a few.
Reason #4. The People
I took a closer look at the many reasons why we like going there so much and, as it turns out, the reasons always seem to point back to the remarkable staff.
The staff at Outback Steakhouse, like Kitchen Manager Jon Weber and Grill Chef Kenyata Beasley, are part of the professional team that make sure everything is cooked just right. The professional Wait Staff then serves the made-to-order meals to their customers, meals that look more like works of art with a heavenly smell to boot.
We wanted to thank, Ladonya, for patiently helping us with our order today and giving us service fit for a King and Queen. She, also, let us know that we received a $5 discount since we are Outback App Members.
The food and service at Outback are impeccable. For example, you most likely will never have to ask for a refill since new drinks are, most often than not, delivered to tables before customers are finish with the first one.
There’s is nothing that beats Paducah’s hospitality and this Outback follows this long-held local tradition to the tee.
So if you are ever traveling through Paducah on I-24, just get off at Exit 4 and head East on Hinkleville Road (US-60). It’s right off the highway next to Drury Inn.
