MOONSHINE COUNTRY STORE
A wide spot in the road in the SW corner of Clark County, Moonshine is the in spot for the elite to meet. You'll need a compass, plat map and a little luck to find it, but she's worth the trip....and it's a heck of a lot cheaper than going to St Barth's for a cheeseburger in paradise.
Roy Lee and Helen Tuttle bought the old-time (circa 1912) country store in 1982 and promptly made it the best eating house in town - heck, it's the only building in town, unless you count the outhouse - and you had better count it..,
Aside from cold cut deli-style sandwiches, drinks and snacks, Moonshine is the home of the world-famous Moonburger. You can get a double beef cheese Moonburger, you can get a bacon Moonburger, shoot, you can get a Moonburger just about any old way y'all want it.
The store guest-book has visitors from all 50 states and around the world. The visitors get a chance to enjoy hospitality and ambience from days gone by, no fancy menus or dinner tabs here, just give her your name when you order over the deli counter and pay as you leave. You can sit down on the inside benches or enjoy the picnic tables right next to the kerosene pump.
Irene's Vineyard and Winery is locally owned and operated by the Boldrey Family at their secluded countryside home nestled along the North Fork Creek. Wayne and Irene moved to their home in 1958 where they raised their 4 children at this beautiful countryside place, we now call Irene's Vineyard. Although they have both passed now our family still carries on the traditions of family, food, fun and wine! We welcome you to make yourselves at home and enjoy this beautiful place we proudly call home.

The Fairview Drive-in Theatre debuted in 1953, featuring a single 72” x 36” single screen with a capacity of 250 cars. Situated in a rural cornfield in southern Illinois, the Fairview was one of the most remote drive-in theatres in the state. In the early 1990’s, the Fairview briefly closed after the screen was damaged by a storm. It soon reopened under new management and was eventually remodeled in 2002 boasting a new concession area and screen.
In the fall of 2014, the Fairview Drive-in closed for the season and was sold. In June 2015 the new owners are excited to bring updated enhancements including a digital cinema projector and a new concession building with a variety of quality dining options and exceptional service.
