I moved to Champaign last weekend (will be here until mid-August) and my plan to use the library as my ISP is already wearing on me. It seems that everyone hates Comcast—I haven't been able to reach customer service to ask about options, so I get that already. My post-August plans are up in the air, therefore I don't want to sign a 12 month contract even if it can be transferred to another location. What are my options for short-term internet access?

I want to spend this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday driving around to see/do fun, cheap things in a ~3 hour radius from Champaign, Illinois (closer is preferred). Can you help a sister out? [more inside]

I am spending a day and a half looking for housing and visiting U of I with my daughter who will be starting graduate school there in fall. Where should we have dinner that is fun and will give us the best flavor of campus life? Type of cuisine, price, etc. really not important.
Can anybody recommend a decent champaign for a mimosa? Something that I can most likely pick up at most grocery stores. As far as I know, I am not a big fan of champaign, but I had a great mimosa a few months ago at brunch and am craving one today. Hurry - There is still time to make brunch.
