Our friends at Big Pappa's Gyro's in Oak Lawn say the Illinois Gaming Board has approved the restaurant's application for video gaming.

The news was posted on the eatery's Facebook page, eliciting a few well wishes.
In February, the village granted Big Pappa's a liquor license. Owner Sandra DiGangi said the restaurant would serve beer and wine.

It must be my timing but the only people I see regularly playing these machines are the workers/servers in these establishments. Glad they can throw their hourly wage away in an easy manner! When does McDonalds or Portillos get their gambling machines?

Mayor Bury and Trustee Carbury both promised in campaign literature to stop the influx of gambling cafes and massage parlors. So far, I haven't seen anything from either of them to back up this promise.

Just what Oak Lawn needs, another gaming parlor with drinks to boot. Good luck Oak Lawn police. Thought you had enough to work on without tackling gaming parlor's too.
