    Re: Bar scene

    When I go back to Ames, I'll usually head to Capones, Headliners, or Paddys. Back when I was in college, I went to pretty much all of them.

    Re: Bar scene

    Patty's, Mickey's, and Cy's are the only places that typically have people in them. The rest are hit and miss depending on their specials for the night. Main St. is interesting Corner pocket and DG's are pretty steady and London Underground has a certain market to put it nicely.
