A patron temporarily exiting Tom’s Place in Lemont, Illinois to enjoy a quick smoke on the street.

Long an avid admirer of artistic beauty, I have only recently embarked on the process of creating art. It is a passion, indeed, and one that provides nourishment for the soul.
Thank you very much for the visit, and I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have enjoyed the creative process.
An all to familiar sight here, except it’s always raining and the cigs get wet…Nice capture
Yes, I know the feeling. Thanks for the comments!

I think I’d like Tom’s Place. I certainly like his sign. “Drink Beer”…. twist my arm ;)
Too funny! It’s a nice neighborhood place — comfortable and without pretense.
Good shot! And Blatz…mmmmmmmmmm Have not had that in a very long time
Thanks for the comment. That’s what I love about the sign — who serves Blatz anymore?!
I love these old taverns! We used to have several in Whitefish and Columbia Falls, but the former has torn them down to provide upscale bars for the rich people moving in and the bars in Columbia Falls have almost all closed down.
I agree! There’s something classical about an old tavern. Thanks!
very cool photo
Thank you, Sophie!
