Howdy. Being a home grown 'townie' from Bloomington-Normal, I was quite surprised you say locals call it Blum/Num. I have never in my 60 years living here ever heard anyone refer to our town by that name. Please do not pass that's does not sound flattering. We've always stated our full town name, but in recent years where the buzz word is all about abbreviations and acronyms, some have taken to calling it Blo-No. If you have to use an abbreviation, please use the correct one. In closing, we love Meatheads. Best fries in town...burgers are great too, but agree with you - can't beat Green Gables for taste.
Thanks, and happy travels.


I have to agree with the previous commenter. I am a Normalite and have never heard of our twin cities referred to as "Blum/Num". "BloNo" or Blo-No, yes, but never blum/num and I hope that term never catches on. Maybe because it sounds like "dum-dum", not sure. :) I enjoyed reading your review of Meatheads and even though I am from the area and love Meatheads- I didn't realize that it all started here.
