Stay at the Brightwood Inn which is 2 MINUTES south of Starved Rock State Park.  On Saturday evening you can go into Utica (4 MINUTES north of us) and watch the ever popular Mardi Gras Parade and then party like you're in N'Awlins.  Utica knows how to party!  Next morning you will wake up to Mimosas or champagne, coffee, King Cake, fruit cup, chocolate chip homemade muffins, homemade granola with vanilla yogurt, and your choice of "made from scratch" Hollandaise Sauce on your Eggs Benedict or Eggs Hussarde.  If you like sweet for breakfast we're making Bananas Foster French Toast Casserole.  All this, and if you mention NO TAX when you make your reservation we charge NO TAX.    If you don't want to watch the parade and party hearty we'll send you to a nice restaurant and you still get the Brennen's New Orleans type breakfast next morning.  It's included in the price of the room!  Can't beat that.  Call us at 815-667-4600 to reserve.  8am to 6pm thanks
