Loved this! Get a token for a buck inside the liquor store. Make sure you get a few because the flame ends pretty quickly (Seems less than 10 seconds). Dragons! Flames! Roadside! Yes!

Dragon breathes flame. Kaskaskia Dragon

Totally worth the stop -- minutes off the highway. It shows up on Google maps, but just in case, you can enter this in your GPS: Lo Mac's Liquor, 1412 N Rock Island Ave, Vandalia, IL 62471-4118.

It's the liquor store previously mentioned, located directly across the street. And you're gonna want to buy at least 4 or 5 coins. It's just that awesome. You'll want to do it more than once.

The dragon is totally worth the stop, especially at night!

Fire Breathing Steel Dragon

So worth the extra 2 minutes! Even my critic husband was impressed! And the liquor store staff was soooo friendly! Would be better at night, and the liquor store is open late almost every night.
