    Tip Top?

    I heard a rumor that Tip Top has been bought out to make room for something else. Surely they wouldn't do this to me right before the start of the season! Has anyone else heard this or is it false?


    EDIT:
    Looks like this rumor is Not true. Yay for beer & chili at 6am!

    Heard it might be a Yoga and Yogurt Heaven Shoppe.

    Re: Tip Top?

    The owner of the tiptop from the 80s now owns the bar up in north Ames. I heard they were planning on doing chili this year before games up there.

    That is a poor decision on his part.

    Re: Tip Top?

    That is terrible news. Especially for the night shift guys, what other bars in Ames are open in the morning?

    We can't let this happen! I know a few guys that would chain themselves to the building when the wrecking crews come.

    Re: Tip Top?

    Tip Top should be put on the historic registry. Very few taverns like that left and it should be maintained forever.
