    I can recommend an amazing Tia restaurant if you like that kind of stuff.

    There are some Cyclone fans in Marion / Cedar Rapids. Just not many. Any don't expect much much news coverage on anything ISU.

    One-half of me wants to commend you for wanting to get back into shape...the other half of me wants to condemn you for wanting to leave CF, regardless of reason.

    Starlight Room between 34th and 33rd streets NE in CR. IF you like the best greasy cheesburgers around. Don't know about any hoops leagues.

    Quite a few Clones in Marion.

    Zoeys is a must.

    I would highly recommend both of these. I live in Urbandale now, but grew up in Marion. Great place to raise a family, IMO. Love the town, except for all the Hawk fans.

    I second Zoeys. If you like beer try Parlor City and Whitestar Ale House in CR.

    Re: Any Cedar Rapids/Marion Cyclones out there?

    I'm a Marion Cyclone as well. Don't have much to offer on the league part of things, but you'll have to come out to watch a game. A few of us have gotten together in the past.


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Parlor city is pretty good. Lots of different beers.

    Not looking to leave CF website.. Just not stare at it for hours on end reading forums about Food Network shows & Giadia's cleavage..

    Just looking to see if any guys get together to play basketball, football, softball doesn't really need to be a league per se.

    Zoey's & Tomaso's were actually the 1st two places I ate at in CR/Marion area.. Awesome stuff..

    Watch out for Marion cops in general. They are major ******. Can I say that here? If not, then they are significant ******.

    Re: Any Cedar Rapids/Marion Cyclones out there?

    I live in Marion and I think you'd surprised by how many Cyclones there are around here. While still outnumbered, there is more than you would probably think. Best pizza restaurant and best restaurant all around in Marion is Tomasos hands down. Don't let these crazy people tell you it is Zoeys either, unless you feel the cravy for their Zookey (they have one of the best). As for softball leagues, I'm not exactly in the know as I only play in sand volleyball leagues. If you like playing in the sand too, Volleys on Blairferry is monstrous and has leagues running every night.
