    ** Official NYE in DM thread **

    Unfortunately we can't make it this year, but this is a great show they do every year for NYE at People's. If you like dueling piano's, you'll love this show as it comes with a twist. They have a band backing them up. I can tell you from firsthand experience, you'll have a great time.

    Show

    For those of you that will be out and about in Des Moines, what else is going on NYE that you think is worth checking out?

    We just sit home, relax and watch the various New Years shows since neither of us really drink and don't think its worth it to pay extra to get in a bar on NYE.

    Re: ** Official NYE in DM thread **

    Gaslamp would be my first choice
    Bright*Giant and Randy Burke & The Prisoners for $15 - sick bar, strong drinks, pinball

    Vaudeville Mews would come in a close second
    Bob Nastanovich and Marc Hogan spinning records? Yes. - Try to beat a $2 cover on NYE on Court Ave.

    I'm staying in Ames. DG's has some great live music tomorrow night - Cleo's, Mumfords, Sun Company, Poetoaster. Hopping around to the Pocket/London/Whiskey/OMBC is always dope for a quick scenery change - no cover (except DG's which is $10)

    Travel safe, bad weather.

    It isn't going to be an end of the world storm. Not a lot of ice, not a lot of snow, but a little bit, plus winds blowing maybe up to 55 or 60 mph at times, plus a lot of drunk drivers has the potential to not be very pretty.

    Worst of it will be north, but a lot of this will be moving through right at midnight/1am, as people are leaving or right before they head home.

    Here are the maps:
    Winter Weather Advisory
    High Wind Warning

    With the wind, even just a little bit of snow or ice will make it tough, even in Des Moines/Ames with the worst staying north.
