Galena, Illinois: A Trip You Both Can Love
'Men's Time Out' from shopping
In the morning, I hit the shops of Main Street wary of what becomes of men in such places. But Galena's long row of shops keeps Teri and me side-by-side for what is, to me, a marathon browsing session of 90 minutes.
Just when my interest wanes, I find an oasis indicating I'm not the first man to need a boost at this point. Teri zeroes in on At Home in Galena's giant striped candles as I follow signs to the second-floor "Men's Time Out."
A back room hides a refuge of stadium seats, satellite TV and a fridge stocked with free beverages. If someone made all shopping like this, I might actually know what malls look like on days other than December 24.
