    Up Down bar

    Just checked out this place for the first time. Kind of dingy but for $25 on Sunday you get a fanny pack, 6 tall boys, and a pound of tokens. They also have some decent beer on tap. They probably have 50 arcade games.

    Just be careful when you walk out of the bar. I saw a tall hottie in a leather skirt and then I realized I was across the street from the Blazing Saddle.

    Heard good things about this bar, but I've never been. I have also never been to blazing saddles, thank god.

    Stopped by Up Down yesterday afternoon with my bachelor party after playing laser tag at the new CMP Tactical. Both places that I would go again. Fortunately, we bypassed Blazing Saddles.

    Up down can be a lot of fun. I'll just say avoid it on friday\saturday nights. I know all bars get busy on those nights, but with a bar like this there's no point if you cant get to the games easily, plus being in the basement there with little ventilation it gets extremely hot. I think they need to do some maintenance on some of their games though, more than once ive found a joystick not working. But overall the value is good

    And... add me to the list that hasnt been to blazing saddle lol.

    Since all these guys are lying and saying they haven't been to Blazing Saddles, I'll also lie and say I have been there.

    Re: Up Down bar

    So I assume the fanny pack means it's a gay bar?

    Re: Up Down bar

    Also have not been to blazing saddles


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Up Down bar

    I tried to go to Up/Down after a concert at the place next door last fall. It was far too packed. Having been to a couple of other beercades, it was not high on my list. If they really have 50 arcade games though, that is solid.

    I've been to Up Down AND blazing saddle, had fun at both many times. Saddle does have the strongest drinks in town!
