A Fun Place to Take 8 Yo for Her Bday!
Hi! I was hoping some of you ladies could help me think of a fun place to take my 8 yo daughter for her Bday. Its low key with just family (about 8 of us) and we wanted to go to a fun restaurant or party place. I can't think of anything! Something different and fun in the area. Thanks!

Not necessarily a party place, but how about Build-A-Bear? If there are more kids, they will do a bear party. Or you could just go there, let your daughter do the bear thing, and wrap up at a fun restaurant. If you're in the city, you could do Ed DeBevics, if in the burbs, you could try to find a Joe's Crab Shack or something equally loud and obnoxious, but fun for kids!

It may be more than you were looking to do but have you ever been to the Key Lime Cove indoor waterpark in Gurnee? It would be a nice getaway for everyone:)

A fun restaurant, off the top of my head, is Bucca de Beppo. It's a bit irreverent, food can be served family style, decor is interesting and entertaining. It's been a while since I have been there for a birthday - but, years ago, the "birthday cake" that came to the table, was an obnoxiously HUGE multi-tiered piece of cake. They also come to the table and sing "Happy birthday" in Italian. A couple locations near you: Orland Park and Lombard (York Town) but they also have one downtown, Chicago. You can go Ice skating, first, on State Street, then head over there. Have fun!
