The common denominator activity after the wedding rehearsal with my bowling friends? Surprisingly, not bowling. We had two foursomes for 18-hole mini golf in Aurora, Ill., go kart racing (I swear I got the reject, slow horse.) and a night topped off with a trip to the Tap House Grill in Plainfield. 37 beers on tap and the best hoagie I’ve ever had: Sprecher Root Beer braised beef topped with tomato & gouda in a hoagie torpedo roll, with a side of tater tots.
